  • Re: Possible Ocean Race
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Rather than go straight to the race setup ... below is a link to the kmz I have made for this one based on Dingo's suggestion.

    To create this, I "found" both places in Google Earth, added a waypoint to each, then checked the coordinates of the GE waypoints vs Sailonline because of map-offset (I did this by opening a race and finding the coords and making sure the island shape I found looked like that in GE) and made the necessary adjustments.

    The kmz now contains the info that OPS can use to set up the various elements of the race.

  • Re: 2015 RACE CALENDAR Q3
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    :-( first time since I've been sailing here that we aren't.... but Sailonline has a super-busy calendar with buddy-ups so I imagine the SRC guys had to draw the line somewhere and, of course, don't forget we aren't buddied with any of those races (they have refused our "advances").

    I've just taken the Q3 calendar and outlined all the buddy-up races in blue (and my Carib Rum Run in gold+pearls!!)...

    Here's what it looks like:
