    I was introduced to SOL by NEWSARTIST...still my number one mentor, but quickly learned who to watch, Agage was always on my radar. News still tells me don't sail follow the leader style, but sailing in Agage's wake allowed me to learn many things about wind and sailing.
    When Beta was introduced my favorite feature was creating boat lists. Agage was always on that list....To Aaron's family: I LOVE SOL because of Agage!!!!

    GHOST SHIP ICON???

    While sailing in "BETA" in the BMW Black Sea Virtual Race 2012 - Leg 2

    I see two icons representing my boat.

    1. a pinkish color boat icon & wake like I always have seen. but

    2. right behind it is a brown colored boat icon & wake ( I logged on as SOL on another PC to check and sure enough
    that was me.

    The first Icon will advance with each update and then the second Icon will catch up ... sometimes the first boat icon will advance two times adding more distance between the two boat icons but then the trailing boat icon will catch up.

    This seemes like it could be a problem when rounding marks... which boat Icon do I use??? I am sailing S.O.P. so my tacks are visual and not coordinate driven.

    In my short adventure so far with the wonders of SOL I've witnessed some pretty creative things come out of pratice sailing, as for this "fort" my sails are still green. **practice 2 learn** Thank you for checking my wake in the Perth ISAF Fleet Race Practice.
    It was a situation I had yet to see and since I just started to explore BETA SOL I thought I'd bring it up.

    My ships log went overboard...uggg
    I'm not sure what time I passed the mark
    But Friday around that time could very well put me within a reboot.

    Thank You again.

    When I sailed north again and rounded the mark this time it changed to "rounded" even during practice sailing. So my mystery of why I didn't round it the first time still stands???

    Do you mean to say that it still shows as 'Leave to Port' ??
    That is because mark roundings are only scored in the real race.
    The other client version will be the same

    Once again as I sail south... my DTF is increaseing. wouldn't this suggest that I didn't round the mark? Other boats on the same heading are decreasing DTF.

    Thanks Aaron, Your work is outstanding!!!!

    I was concerned as I sailed south past the mark that my boat position(in the standings) was climbing and I was losing positions. That is what made me think I hadn't rounded the mark and then as I sailed north back toward the mark my boat position started to drop again.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Can you look at my wake and tell me why the "Two Rock" mark in the "Perth ISAF Fleet Race" practice sailing was Not rounded. If I zoom in it seems like I met my "port requirements... is this a problem with the beta client???

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2020
Progressive climate change since this 34nm race designed by NZL_Scotsman was first run in 2014 may have eased our access to these fjords but watch out for growlers.  This is a TIMEDrace, and you can expect storms and calms, so choose your start time with care. Sailing in little J-80’s, 5:01:11 hours is the previous best time to beat. God hastighed!

Maryland to Alaska 2020
Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.

Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2020


When the winter weather turns cool in southern Australia sailors head up to the warmer tropics. Every year in August sailors from all over the world make their way to The Great Barrier Reef for the big winter regattas at Hamilton Island, Airlie Beach and Magnetic Island. What better way to get there than to race to the reef. This year Sailonline is joining with the racers from RQYS to race the 343 nautical miles from Brisbane to Keppel Island in our TP52s. It might be winter downunder but all you will need is shorts and t-shirts.
