    Mackinac Race belongs in July Not August

    Racing to Mackinac is the highlight of the summer season for the Great Lakes as renowned sailors & their highly prized boats bring excitement and world class competition to Lake Huron & Lake Michigan.

    This year's edition starts from Port Huron on Saturday, July 12, 2014 under the auspices of the Bayview Yacht Club

    http://www.bycmack.com/

    If the SOL Race committee intends to conduct a Super Mac it should coincide with this date & proceed to Chicago,

    Yellowbrick Tracking of the fleet will be employed for the initial portion of this leg until we pass under the Mackinac Bridge.

    My understanding is limited but I believe that the game is played on the server & reported to the client. Your boat receives approx. 4 updates per minute but not necessarily uniformly spaced & the fleet movements are once a minute.

    By highlighting your boat from the list you will see its ghost ship as it appears to the rest of the fleet and can judge the relative positions more accurately.

    * objects in your rear view mirror are closer than they appear.

    *(Posted earlier as sol)

    Everyone is given equal marks for skillful sailing such that the competition is decided by the judgement of the afterguard regarding navigation with respect to the weather & optimum route to destination.

  • Re: Team Boats / Group Boats
    Board » General Discussion
    From my personal experience the origin of this practice should not be ascribed to my Italian friends. There was & continues to be an off site sailing community who organizes team competition across several well known virtual venues. The moniker for this group is Revatua, really nice folks & good sailors, with a primarily french speaking orientation.

    The intent was to score multiple boats comprising a team for an aggregate result. One particularly aggressive team exploited the situation & boat slaving began such that the best available member simultaneously controlled many boats. The clustering of positions by this strategy did not go unnoticed when races here at SOL were indirectly involved.

    It was then that other nationalities began to follow suit. The Team boat concept here evolved from that situation.

  • Re: RSL/FLEX error when loading latest client - post HERE
    Board » Technical Support
    I also use a Mac, albeit with a Legacy operating system OS X Tiger (10.4.11), & when I use a similar maintenance utility as Careka has cited that performs deep cleaning of system & user caches I would routinely encounter the RSL/FLEX stumbling block which required the /?beta=true appendage to resolve.

    Prompted by this thread I did this procedure again today & was able to load a race that successfully completed without any errors although it does typically take longer the 1st time which is normal.

    Death to the RSL/FLEX Error !
