  • Re: REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES
    Board » Technical Support
    having been away I have tried this evening and the race is now operating correctly. Can you please advise me what was done and was I the only person to have been affected?
  • Re: REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES

    Thanks for your help. I have done the steps you suggested but to no avail. The problem is only on the 1 race, the Lisbon & timed race both operate normally.
    That said this race does work ok on my laptop - the only difference is the laptop is Win7 32 bit & the PC is Wn7 64 bit - not sure if that is a factor?

  • REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES
    Board » Technical Support
    I am having serious problems with the Santa Monica race it that the messages posted will not clear so I am unable to steer my ship or in fact do anything.
    However this does highlight a problem that there is no (appears) way to report a technical fault to be looked at quickly and reported back.
    This is the second problem recently and it is destroying my enjoyment of SOL - I'm not prepared to spend hours racing just to be told that because someone has been disadvantaged teh race ius scrubbed, yet never seems to happen when I havea problem

    I was very disappointed in the decision making process by which, because of the outage, the results were nullified. As far as I can see it, no-one gained an advantage because of the outage, it just affected some more than others. I have also been in a position where previous outages have affected my race, but i would not expect special treatment, which seems to be the case here. Consider a yacht demasting, would all the rest of the racers have been penalised? I think in future that, unless it is proven that one player gained an advantage then the races should be left to run.

    Hello. I am getting an RSL Error 1 of 2, Error#2046 when signing into a race normally.

    Works OK on Classic, have tried changing address line to "beta=true" but error comes back.

  • SOL Improvements - Radar
    Board » General Discussion
    If anyone is looking for improvements to SOL then a radar system would be great - I'm fed up of running into rocks I can only see on maximum magnification!

    As SOL knows where the rocks are and where the boat is and the course that is headed then perhaps a "collision alarm" at say 5nm? I would not suggest any form of auto system, you might be deliberatly aiming to crash into those rocks for a BBQ or something!

Current Races:

Return from Lindisfarne 2019
In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Silverrudder 2019
Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2019
