    I agree with other "posters".. :-)
    This proposal is simple, logical and easy to understand and follow.
    I too am glad to see the proposals re:Team boats.
    Therefore I agree that they should be adopted as soon as is reasonably possible.
    Good work guys!

    I just started experiencing this issue running through Internet Explorer 9 and a wired internet (100Mb) connection in the UK. Tried the Beta site and it looked to be ok but could not load the latest SWR2014-2 race from there to know if it was race specific..
    I have now accessed the race and my boat using Chrome as the browser so not a big issue per se but thought I'd add the information to the thread in case it helps anyone...

    Just started Leg 9 and was mid fleet. Wanted to adjust my course so went back to the site, and went to race page to find boat head to wind. Have reset a number of times, and despite the heading showing as corrected, it then defaults within minutes to head to wind!!!!

    HELP!!! I've gone from around 340th to 550th as I type this!!!!

    That's the same for me too! It's surprisingly confusing not being able to see my own or other's tracks.... Suddenly they just aren't there.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for response & I'll try to get screenshots if it happens again.

    Incidentally, when I asked about resolution, I meant resolution of the chart (i.e. how accurate it is), not the resolution (or solution) of any issue....

    Closing on the finish of the Antwerp to Belfast race, I set a COMPASS course to cross the finish line approx one third of the way in from the northern end of the line. Once logged with the server, projected track showed straight through where I wanted it to be, so I went off to do some chores. When I came back, my boat had shot straight past the northern end of the line and hit the docks in Belfast!! It's not a big issue per se, I was lying about 240th and had made minor errors of my own so I wasn't likely to win, but as this is a time on distance race, it might have made a difference and would certainly have done had I been closer to the front!!
    Any thoughts?

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!

Southampton to Punta del Este 2024

Sailonline is delighted to offer our sailors a 'reversed' Atlantic ocean race. As the RTW championship Atlantic part takes a detour to the Bahamas, we will offer you a reversed course as we will not do the 'usual' leg this year either. It is the July edition of this year's Ocean Championship. Our boat is the OD_65v3.
