    Thank you for your prompt response. It is helpful to know how things work.

    The Map employed for this Race behaves differently than the usual format. Is this Intentional ?

    The Race distance listed in the description as (90 nm) is erroneous.

    SOL uses data from GSHHG (Global Self-consistent, Hierarchical, High-resolution Geography Database)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSHHG

    Data for each resolution is formatted to tiles which are visible in the game. The tiles are compressed files with XML-formatted polygons (list of lat/lon coordinates) of the shorelines of islands and continents.

    The Second beaching is the culprit as it occurs just where the Bearing to Mark Azimuth lies.

    The best clue is the DTG listed at 10.44 nm which is how far it is from your current position to the North Head mark & back to the Finish line. Somehow on one of your beachings near that location you "un-rounded" that mark, perhaps because your next jump on land went past but your boat was held at the last Valid position.

    Please Confirm the message displayed by North Head as either Rounded or Leave to Starboard ?

    A conundrum for sure & one that has happened before, perhaps dates should be included as part of the standard format for race descriptions in the future.

    The Calendar for Q2 would indicate that Saturday is the last day, this however is only an observation & is not in any way an official determination.

    Having taken a peek at the course about to be run tomorrow I was struck by the odd number of 'marks' & in a couple of instances their placement relative to nearby landforms which causes me to offer this conjecture, were they intended to actually be on land but for whatever reason did not line up as intended ?

    Since these courses were drawn up "in house" I believe that it would be helpful for them to be accompanied by some insightful comments about the intent of their design.
