    Nice idea! I might join in at a later stage. Anyway, I already look only a few times at my boat during working hours, and decide on tactics and strategy mainly in the evening and a bit in the morning.

    Should be solved. Take a look tomorrow, after the rankings update.

    Thanks Jeroen. Following discussion on chat, problem solved in the meanwhile. Something with Firefox ...
  • Black race screen
    Board » Technical Support
    Hello everyone,

    My internet connection seems to function properly, and the Sailonline site also.

    However, my race screens are completely black. Never had that before. Am I the only one, or have others the same problem?

    The Sailonline manual is absolutely clear: boat sitting is allowed.


  • Re: Routers

    I have one of the better commercial routers for the real-life boat. I did use it a few times on SOL. The great plus is that I learned to use my routing software and got used to its idiosyncrasies. The great minus is that I started to find SOL boring.

    The problem was easily solved: I almost never use my routing software for SOL races anymore!

    Il semble en effet qu'il y ait un bug qui se produit parfois lorsque le parcours fait un 180°. Nous avons rajouté un waypoint pour résoudre le problème sur cette course. Il faut recharger l'écran de course pour voir le nouveau parcours.

    The Polar test race is not included in any of the rankings. Inexplicably, the Round Iceland race is included in both the Weekend and Week Race Championships. Clearly, I am not the only one who gets confused with these rankings. :-)

    The polar test race was started up at very short notice, and that is why I did not include it in the rankings.

    The Round Iceland is a good example of a more general issue. Most week and week-end races are shorter than 400 NM and usually take 1 or 2 days, and seldom more than 3 days. Depending on their start day (week or week-end), it is easy to say what ranking they belong to.

    Somewhat longer races like Round Iceland (800 NM) are more difficult to classify. It started on a Wednesday evening (during the week => week race) but also spanned a week-end (=> week-end race). I thus decided to classify it both as a week and as a week-end race. That was also metioned in the description of the race, BTW.

    Any better idea? :)

    I quite like the idea, but it is difficult to implement for SOL.

    If it is easy to change the direction of the chat, I support this proposal as well. And now, I go to the IRL boat. Have a nice day!

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!
