    Hi Francois,

    Here it is the updated "kmz" file with your comments.
    I really don't know if they still do this race in RL. This was 20+ years ago when I still lived overthere.
    We used to sail on 1/2tonners and OneTonners. It was a 3 days affair.
    Here on SOL we could do (I think) in less than 48hours on a VO70. Maybe even less if we get good winds.
    Also, the real race didn't allow to go thru the Ilhabela strait, but for SOL this would more interesting.
    Note that in the leg from Rio to Buzios there are many little island that here on SOL we will be able to cut corners and again make the race more interesting.
    The idea here is to re-live my childhood.
    I hope we all have fun.
    It will all depend on the wind. If we get a weekend with light winds this could turn into a painful race. But, we sailors know that already. Don't we ?
    Thanks again for considering this race.
    Cheers,
    Antonio (Tuze1)
  • Proposal for a race outside of Rio (Brazil)
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    This is my humble proposal for a race offshore of Rio de Janeiro.
    The circuit is based on an actual race that I sailed a few times.
    There are some modifications to make more exciting for Sol.
    I designed the race in Google Earth as per Francois (Incognito) tutorial. This is my first time working in Google Earth, so please review it as necessary.
    Cheers,
    Antonio (Tuze1)

    A few observations on my first anniversary of SOL.

    I’ve made good online friends here. (Thanks to the Chat Room) – Great feature.

    I’ve learned a great deal of sailing navigation and geography.
    The reason for me learning so much is in first place the design of the game, the polars, the wind arrows and the weather slide. But also the ability to see every other boat and their tracks.

    To me SOL is not a game but a learning tool, a sailing simulation. I bet we are all winners here. I have a feeling that anyone who dedicates time to SOL will became better tacticians in real life.

    I have no problem in seeing people using router software to get there faster. I certainly would if I had the time and the skills to write software. At the moment I learn by observation. Please, do not hide the tracks and the other boats. Hide the boats and tracks would diminish the learning tool aspect of SOL.

    I’ve been thinking about the software use or not use for the past months and my conclusion is to stagger very short races with long races. I don’t think outside router software is effective in short races specially the ones with lots of islands and SLI. (Don’t you like those? :)

    So, having a mix of short and long races we are going to satisfy both camps, software users and non-users, if that is at all possible.

    Either way, please do not let SOL turn into another video game where luck is a bigger factor.

    Thanks,

    Antonio Ferrer

    Jakob,

    The BBQ race was great.
    I really enjoy these very short races.
    The level of competition we have here on Sol is so good and intense that if you blink you will loose positions.
    I am not saying we need this all the time, but to have these type of intense races sometimes, it is like an Aerobic exercise for your brain, it must be good for your health ;)

    Cheers,
    -Antonio

    Thanks Jakob and all,

    The Bimini race was great, very intense with all the little islands on the way and the shift winds.
    Lots of Zig-Zags downwind and the race never turn into a parade.
    I really like those type of races.

    Nice to have a mix of Long and Short races here on Sol.

    Thanks again,

    Antonio (Tuze1)

    Jakob,

    In my opinion we don't need to race different races all the time.
    I personally would be happy to repeat past races sometimes.
    We have raced some wonderful short races here in the past that you could re-schedule again.
    For example, all the short "in-port" races during the VOR would be great to do again. (In my opinion)
    The races around the Sweden Archipelago were also super fun.

    Regards,
    Antonio

    Hi Jakob and all,

    Would be possible to run a few short, day races. Say, max 24 to 36 hours during the weekends.

    Also, it would be fun to use "Rambler" again, since last time we used we had to cancel the race.

    These latest long races have being hard to concentrate for a wage slave working man like some of us.

    Thank you very much. Sol rocks !

    Kalle,

    Isn't this strange.
    Now I can see the maps and everything on these 2 new races (Chicago-Mackinac race) and (St.Malo race).
    Also no problems on the OSTAR.
    But, for whatever reason my Laptop refused to show the maps/weather/boats on the Gotland race :(

    Just for curiosity, how is it possible that the feed from one race only was not accepted by my computer?

    Thanks,
    Antonio

    Update:

    I went back to OSTAR and it worked fine, but the Gotland race still does not work.

    Would it be possible that the "feed" from a particular race doesn't work ?
    Although it does not explain why it works for everyone else and my other computer.

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.
