    Here is a full(er) kmz I have just made, incorporating the coords from the schematic... I will endeavour to find some names to go with the marks!

    NOTE: HIRES weather will not be available for this race, sadly, as it will be used for the Sprint starting just 2 days before this race.

    POSTED ON FB BY YAKKA's daughter (I have permission to share):

    QUOTE
    My dad, Steve Alloway, died in the early hours of Saturday morning. He battled this horrible disease right to the end, insisting on getting up and getting on with it. One of the last things he said to me was "jessica, dont bullshit a bullshitter". It is heartbreaking that he has left us at 57 years old and with lots more yachting to do and his big building project at home to complete. Dad was surrounded by us three girls, his baby sister and one of his dearest friends. He died peacefully sleeping next to mum and is no doubt testing out his new sails on Beep Beep. We love you dad and you will be forever in our hearts. Dad will be at home with us till his service which will also be here at home on Waiheke at 11am Tuesday 14th June. Friends of the street will be available for ferry pickups. If you need our address in Onetangi please private message me. Sail on dad Xx

  • RIP Yachtyakka - Steve Alloway
    Board » General Discussion



    It is with sorrow that I have to tell you that NZL_Yachtyakka has slipped his mooring for the last time and headed off into the big blue.

    Many of you will know he had been diagnosed with cancer last year and had had major surgery and underwent treatments.

    In typical Yakka fashion he threw himself into the business of recovery with energy, enthusiasm and a brilliantly open mind. Sadly, this was not to be enough and having last seen comms in Facebook from him last week, I have heard that Steve died in the early hours of this morning at his home on Waiheke Island.

    This is what I wrote in Facebook:

    QUOTE
    RIP my dear Yakka ... you were one of the first Kiwis I met when I started virtually racing on Sailonline.org and your wonderful enthusiasm fast led to Waiheke becoming our practice racing NZ home. You have always brought a marvellous energy, fun and enthusiasm to whatever you did, I am sad i wasn't well enough to meet you when you "did Europe" a couple of years ago. You may have sailed off into your next adventure, but you will never be forgotten. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{BIG HUGS TO ALLOWAY FAMILY}}}}}

  • Re: Wx Inspector
    Board » Technical Support
    Rod - I will draw Markku's attention to this... BUT I believe I can throw some light on this.

    As you know, Sailonline NavSim AB when it was formed "moved" the Sailonline server from a small stand-alone one in Sweden to a larger one in Germany run by a company called Hetzner. Its a server "farm".

    Early on we had problems with some of our emails being blocked as malicious etc and investigation showed that a former tenant on the server Sailonline NavSim AB had been allocated had been a"baddie". Our Tech Team worked on the matter, providing relevant IDs etc to Microsoft and the world and, as far as I know the matter was fixed.

    This is either a hangover "blacklist" from those days (2013) OR its something new.

    Either way, I am sure out Tech Team will let us know!


    P.S. WX Inspector was established on hmm's server (which lives with the Sailonline one at Hetzner) just before Aaron died... but it may be that it doesn't have up to date certificates as WX Inspector was created in 2012 or so.
