    Looks good.
    I only have one wish though, change the colour on the instrumentpaneltext from green to a flourescent red/orange.
    It mixes in with the weather on the chart too much now.

    Fun idea!
    Just a couple of questions:
    Order of the Spanish Main: "Complete" Carribean. What does "Complete" mean? We have done some some Carribean races in the past.
    Emerald Shellback: Equator Crossing at prime meridian. Margins to the prime meridian? limits?
    Golden Shellback: Equator crossing at 180th meridian. Same question as above... it's a big ocean...:)

    Svein,
    You are not getting rid of me that easy and besides you are wrong. I'm not in int to win, I'm in it to learn, understand and maintain a level of skills to be used in real life, on a real boat. And if the competition is getting harder it is just a good thing. If I am not first I learn something. Due to little time over for VR sailing I want real races and as there are very few on SOL I will look elsewhere, it's just as simple as that. I would like to have them here but they are not. I'm am the kind of person who is speaking up when I think things are not as the should be. This is such a case. It's a bit disappointing as this is probably the best simulator. That's it, nothing more, nothing less. There are no fingers pointing anywhere, just don't like the way it is developing right now.

    Hi Jeroen,
    I would gladly try to help if I could and had the time to spare but I'm already over my head as it is in real life. I have more than once asked about big real races and often wondered why we are not in them even when the races are known and talked about in the chat. Also races we use to do. A lot of races was missed this year and no one seems to care. It's a bit disappointing since this was one of the reasons to use SOL. And another question: Inport races? Are there any this time?
  • Re: Real Races...?
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    Sorry but I'm not happy with that. If it is up to the sailor what races are to be sailed then it's obvious that the real races are not a priority, and as it has developed it sometimes feels like it is a playground for a selected few. This is not what it once was. I will not continue my membership and will also look elsewhere for real races.
    Best of luck.

    Why does the SOL Ocean Race start nov 6th when it starts nov 5th everywhere else..?
  • Real Races...?
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    Why are we not racing parallel to the real races anymore...?
    Yeas I know the NZ was a real race but a lot was missed.
    The Middle Sea Race is on and we are not in it. A lot of solo/twohand races was missed like the mini transat.. A lot of races has just gone by without any notice. This is one reason I look at other sites for racing and if SOL wants new sailors I think it's a must. All the made up, backyard races are just fine but I think real races should be a priority. This is not as attractive as it ones was...

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
