    glenan - I can't take credit for doing that - the sol boat has always been available for testing during pre-race, obviously it is available for everyone to use if they wish, so you can only really use it for brief practising or polar testing. For those who are managing their rankings sometimes a quick test with the sol boat can help them decide whether or not to register their own boat in the race in question.

    Happy SOL-ing!
  • Re: guest????????????????
    Board » General Discussion
    The purpose of the guest account is to permit someone who is undecided about learning sailing navigation on Sailonline and racing here to be able to view an open race, inspect the user interface/functionality and even read in-race chat - all of which will give a sense of what is involved in racing on this platform.

    Sailing on Sailonline is completely free, so you can easily register a boatname/username and then start testing the UI/functionality for yourself.

    I hope you now decide to do just that :-)

    NOTE: While the guest boat may log in at any time while a race is open on the Homepage, during pre-race practice, it is also possible to log in as the sol boat (username and password are both the word sol ) and then you can try out the steering and other functions, apart from chat.

    AHOY Jim.. yes... there used to be an advertising banner there but the three images are reduced to tiny ones and, once you are an SYC member you can X out of the banner. At present that is the best we can do...

  • Carib Rum Run 2016
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club


    AHOY THERE YE DRIBBLIN CLARTY FOOTED WHELKS!!!



    On 19 September at 1700utc Sailonline will be racing to bring rum from the Carib to Mexico and as is now our tradition all SYC Members are invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

    This is an annual affair, run in close proximity to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

    If you are a paid-up SYC Member you may change your usual Sailonline boatname just within this one race to one influenced by all things piratical! Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

    All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name!

    PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW below before submitting a request so that you don't ask for a name already taken by someone else before you!

    Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

    Once the race opens, I will be changing the boatnames as efficiently as possible!

    NOTE: you may join SYC and request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!
