Board » General Discussion » WANTED: Testers new client

Hello all,

First let me bring you the good news that a SOLer has stepped up a while ago and started work on a new HTML5 client. We hope this client will ultimately replace the current Flash client, as Flash support gets removed from browsers over the next years.

This new HTML5 client is now ready for some testing. We would like to select a handful of people that want to (1) test the new client and (2) be a guide to the new client once everyone else starts using it.

As someone in this group
(1) you will communicate with each other about their findings and maintain a list of bugs and feedback together, and
(2) Once we believe the most important issues are all resolved, we will open the new client to the public and we would like you to answer questions in chat/forum when you are online and generally help people get started. If new problems are discovered, you can add them to the list.

For (1) it would be nice if some of the people in the group have some affection/knowledge of web technologies or software testing.

For (2) it would be nice if you are an active SOLer that is available in chat relatively frequently. It would be good to have some people from the non-English communities, like for example French, Italian and Spanish. But communication within the group and with us will be in English. Also SOLers from the Americas and Australasia are most welcome to join in order to have our "guides" spread over all time zones.

If you are interested to be part of this group of "early adopters", please send an e-mail to my @sailonline.org address: huib@
And if you know of people that may be interested, but sure to point them to this post.
I'm in... of course!!
ME!
I am user testing the new client. I would like the option to not have the night time effect, to have a sound when the new weather arrives and to be able to use the ruler to produce a Great Circle as we could with the old client. Otherwise it seems to work just fine.

When I went to set a start time on Silverrudder, as my router will not take the start, the clock was light years away from the right year and month. Presumably so that the programmers are not disturbed?
Helloooo!
I'm interested in testing the new client.
A few years ago I wrote this document to describe the development of the new client ... I hope there are useful suggestions.

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2021
Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April and it is therefore fitting that Sailonline's tradition of celebrating this joyous event by racing like loons around the Stockholm Archipelago is upheld. Please join us in a tricky 30nm race in beautiful Linjet33s from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to a birthday BBQ by Baggensfjärden.
Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!
Lycka till, alla!!

Valletta Sprint 2021
Welcome once again to the Mediterranean and a true SOL perennial. At 588nm in often light Mediterranean airs, to-date no boat – multi or maxi, SOL or IRL – has managed to best the US's Rambler’s time of 47:55:03 for this course set during the 2007 Middle Sea Race. This year, we offer you our Orange 125 catamaran, so the record is on!

Guadeloupe PYOC 2021
And now… SRC presents…. the PYOC of all PYOC! It is less than 3nm from the estuary of Point-a-Pitre on the south coast of Guadeloupe to the shoal bay directly north of it on the other side of the island, but, alas, a buoyed channel that might take you there is blocked midway by a bridge and a marsh, and anyway, on the SOL chart, that channel ain't there at all. So, expect to have to sail at least 62nm in mercifully relatively nippy Seacart 30s, port- or starboard-round, to win this one, and not to show ahead of boats who just came out to watch the start, until you are nearly home.

Welcome to Race 2 in our PAC6 Pacific Ocean racing championship, this a 3780nm leg from Lima to Honolulu in our fast Maxi Trimaran. Hopefully the trade winds will play ball and we should have a speedy trip, with only a small chance of the doldrums testing your light air skills!

Cape Horn TIMED Run 2021
Welcome to Chile, welcome to Cape Horn, and welcome to a course round these inhospitable waters. This is a place with plenty of wind and strong currents. Our 161 nm triangular TIMED RUN goes around two groups of small islands that are an important nesting site for a number of southern seabirds. Last raced in 2018, we are back here in our updated IMOCA 60s to attempt the challenge once more in these wild waters!
