    While six years seems a long time, in so many ways it feels like just yesterday that we learned of Aaron's unexpected death. Every day on Sailonline, there is something to remind us that without him the site would be so much poorer. {{{Hugs to his family}}}

  • Re: Interface lagging and jerky on map area of the display
    Board » Technical Support
    I am sure kroppyer or Roland will be along to help, but in the meantime, have you checked that Flash is up to date? and/or recently emptied your Flash cache.

    I know that all sounds fairly routine, but emptying Flash cache and DNS cache (to recapture fresh copies of pages) can really improve things!

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
