Page: 1 2 3 Next

For some time now, when creating podium images, I have been less than happy with the visual effect of our podium medals.

Created originally, at my request and in a hurry, by brainaid in 2009, the medals have done a fine job BUT I am sure they can be improved.

I have spent some time dabbling in GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) and have come up with three simple ones:

Gold/1st

Silver/2nd

Bronze/3rd

Lacking graphic artist skills, though my efforts are very basic ... so my challenge to all artistic SYC Members is to come up with new medals.

One set for Individual Races and another set for Race Series - perhaps medals for races and trophy cups for series? Feel free to be creative!

As you come to design them, bear in mind the resulting image size is tiny! (as seen in SOL Homepage Podium images).

After a suitable period of time/number of entries, we will run a vote to choose the best and then.. I will modify the files that generate the podium images!

The challenge is on!

NOTE: The artwork must be your own OR if not, absolutely copyright free OR with express permission from the named artist!

PS If you aren't an artist, please offer ideas/images that you may have seen elsewhere.. 'tis all grist to our mill!

Great! I've chatted with Simone, she is going to play with this idea too, apart from working on some grade badges.

There have been a couple of queries as to image size.

What I will be "replacing" is the medal+rank on the strip that I add to the podium results, the combined image is then resized to what you see on the homepage.

Thus.. the medal (or trophy for series) image can be a little larger than what is currently seen on the Homepage if the image itself incorporates the ranking number.

There are strips for each combination of SYC membership on the podium :-)

Below/attached is an example where all three SOLers on the podium are SYC members.

mmmm .... I see the file as if it were "a photographic negative" ...

Carlo Alberto
oh fantastic!!! two "entries" :-)

Jawz - please would you invite your daughter to look at her beautiful medals when reduced down to the size we need? It seems that the yachts on the gold and silver medals are less visible than those on the bronze.

Also.. the colouring of the SYC flag isn't quite right.

Attached here, for her, and for everyone else, is a copy of an SYC logo image for reference (she could probably grab the flag from it to safe recreating it).

:-D

Hi All

Simone has whitened the little yachts to make them stand out better.

Martinique Sprint 2020
One of the surprising things about France is that you find nice little departments of it everywhere; here, par example, in the Caribbean Sea's Windward Isles. Yes, Martinique is part of the European Union, and for a few Euro coin you can charter an F18 catamaran to explore the beaches along its eastern coast. There's an online race on here as well on Saturday, January 25; just 21.5nm from Île Cabrits to Le Robert. Why not join in?

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
