    I have participated in all past virtual volvo ocean races, The coming edition seems to take place without a vritual version. Would it be possible to add this to the race schedule on such a short notice ? I volunteer to complete a race proposal if it makes a chance, after becoming a SYC member off course.

    Tnks kroppyer for your reaction.
    It is as you say. This resembles reality.
    I was attrackted by the high wind speeds of the depression, but development of it changed, as usual. I had no chance at all to avoid the blue gue afterwards.
    I am having thoughts to write my own router. But that won't change reality.

    the wind information in the client
    differs from the wind information in the gribviewer, which uses the file from
    brainaids site:

    client TWD 122.34° TWS 2.82KT
    gribview TWD 120 TWS 5.3KT

    Meanwhile I have read that there are differences. The effect is that my routing software sends me in the wrong direction.
    How do other SOL users handle this situation ?

  • Boat Name Change
    Board » Technical Support
    My current boatname is :PietD
    Can you please change it to :Armchairsailor
    I suppose that after the change I will need to log in by that name.
    I did not realize that the account name I chose will be used as boat name.
    I suggest that you one time include a feature to select the boat name apart from the account name. I have seen multiple users that wanted to change it after registration.
    I understand that it does not make sense to change it after doing many races, but in real life people occasionally acquire another boat as well.

Susac X2
Welcome to the beautiful calm waters of the Adriatic Sea for the virtual running of the Susac X2 race which is a real-life race organized by the JK Mornar Sailing Club based in Split, Croatia. Although we, unfortunately, aren’t running this magnificent race with the real fleet this year, we hope to make this possible in the coming editions. This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
