Good day all...

Are we not supposed to round Fernando de Noronha?
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Starting time for the race we are not allowed to mention is 1400 CET.
Our race starts 1400 UTC - Is this on purpose or just a coincidence.

Could we have 1 degree wind square? The file would only be about 1MB. It should not be a problem for download speeds.
hey Dana, explain please?
I made an error setting up the wx system. The next update will be a proper 2x2 grid, increasing the filesize by 30% or so.

If we'd made it a 1x1 grid, we would have 10000 points in a grid, which is 10 times the limit we used a not long ago.

We try to keep the filesize down as much as possible so that people with bad or expensive connections can still keep soling.

I think it's possible to improve the client and server enough to use wx files of over 10000 points. But that needs people willing to and able to make those changes.
I don't yet have images of all the boats, but here are some links to those that visited Newport, RI this summer.

Just to advise SOLers that SRC is looking at the polar that we used for the first leg down to Cape Town to see if we can improve it.
However, you will still have to go the right way! We cannot help you with that.
Any new polar will be well promulgated before the start of Leg 2 so keep your eyes open.

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
