    I would concur. The very long races are appealing for those of us who are unable to give 100% attention to SOL because, well, life happens.

    As to this specific proposal, why not make it two races - out and back, as the old China and East India company ships did. Should be timed for the same seasons they sailed in those days to take advantage of monsoon winds, etc. Maybe some pirates to make it interesting? :)

    Kipper, I mostly use AGL to refine QT routes by importing into AGL via Kroppyer's conversion website and running DC conditioning and adding in Performance Loss. Today I was trying to learn more about adding and editing Waypoints directly in AGL. There seem to be some gaps in the Manual:
    --I don't understand how to convert an edited WP to DC's as pictured in the manual.
    --When I click on almost any button along the top of the graphics window after editing a WP, the whole app crashes. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions or additional documentation? If easier, you can communicate with me at ed@careofcreation.org

    Update... I deleted Maps folder, restarted, no change. Then deleted all AGL folders, restarted, no change. Then restarted with a different race, everything is fine. Repeated everything in another race folder. Same results.

    Kipper, I'm getting an error in just one race (Pac6) when attempting to load the graphical chart... the program freezes, and can only be closed by closing the command window. DCs will load to the server, but can't be manipulated (eg. applying PL, etc).

    Here's the error code from the command window:
    -------------------------------------------

    RE: 14_3_1_update - there is no .zip file in the folder, only an .rar . Is it someplace else? Looking forward to using that BBQ feature!

    Kipper - thank you for this. Windows Update - unzip to Java folder or AGL_14 folder?

    Kipper, I'm getting a similar NOAA error:

    Getting NOAA file gfs.t12z.pgrb2.1p00.f009 returned error javax.net.ssl.SSLException.

    Trying again in 60 seconds (URL=https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/filter_gfs_1p00.pl?file=gfs.t12z.pgrb2.1p00.f009&lev_10_m_above_ground=on&var_UGRD=on&var_VGRD=on&subregion=&leftlon=176&rightlon=293&toplat=39&bottomlat=-41&dir=%2Fgfs.20210406%2F12%2Fatmos)

    Might be some information here, but it's way over my head:

    Kipper - I can't find AGL_14_2_4_update.zip in that folder. I have AGL_14_2_4_update.rar but it does nothing, even if the extension is changed to .zip. ???

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
