Board » Technical Support » Again SOL has a very big problem with finishing times.

SOL you seem to have a finish position problem still. I know you don't want to fix it but I am tired of it. My boat finishes at the line and turns head to wind. OK. Boats that finish up to 2 minutes behind me by turning head to wind finish 10 seconds ahead. That is BULL SHI%. I am tired of beating boats to the finish line only to have them beat me. Can't you guys figure out how to get these boats to finish correctly. Don't give that junk about the clock and decimal seconds. That is not where the problem is. Boats that turn head to wind at the finish line are finished. Pure and simple. Boats that turn head to wind 2 minutes later CANNOT beat you by 10 seconds...........
Hi Acme. I am afraid I still have no substantial indication of such a bug. What can happen though is that you might have had a week connection and the visual updates of the other boats on your computer was lagging a little. You say 2 minutes... We do not have such long update times on the servers so it really sounds like a connection problem. Further, the important thing here is that the server is doing ok even if your visual updating lags, donĀ“t you agree?

Ahhh, OK that explains why when you zoom right in on your boat it sometimes looks like it is ahead of boats that are listed as being ahead of it.

It allways looks that your own boat is a little bit ahead because your own boats position updates more often than the other boats.

Hi,ACME RACING,
I have been several times in same condition(not 2 min. however, and concluded that I have to follow the boats arriving with me at about the same time.It usually happens that those boats were continually in front of you and than at arrival somehow they are delayed and you arrive first while in fact those boats already arrived if you look from another computer.
Therefor Jakob explained it well and you do not have to get so upset.

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!
