  • Re: SAIL Newport registration -- did it ever open?
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    I believe someone may have explained this already (in-race perhaps) but it is not possible to register in a TIMED race until it is open for racing. The process for opening a race is similar to that of a Fleet race, but more condensed in time, which means that, briefly, the message on-screen shows Race Closed (usually for no more than a few seconds) and then Registration Open appears.

  • Re: Chicago Mackinac Race
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi Satori.

    For Chicago Mackinac race Sailonline expects to use NOAA's nam_awip wx, tailored to fit the racing area.

    Long standing racers on Sailonline race with and without routing software. There are several very successful racers who race SOTP (Seat Of The Pants) and either use personal skill and the on-screen functionality, or dip into the WX Inspector tool (see the LINKS tab for useful info).

    Others use routers, either the one they are familiar with from their own sailing, such as Expedition or, frequently, the free QtVLM router. There are several threads in this forum on this.

    QtVLM can take the NMEA feed from a Sailonline race, thus helping you plot your course, and SOLers well versed in this will always be happy to help.

    To upload DCs from a router, you can use the AGL tool or the brainaid toolbox option - more info on both of these is available via the LINKS tab.

    As a quick response, I hope this is helpful - once you've had a look (in this Forum too) just ask here or in race chat if you have other questions.

    I am not expert in using a router (but know the basics) but there are many who are!

    :-)

    Board » Technical Support
    You most certainly may change your username/boatname - please email admin@sailonline.org with your current name and the name you wish to change to.

    We will verify that the new name is not in current use and make the change (and let you know when it is done) OR invite you to choose another that is not already in use!
