    Thank you for the welcoming reply.
    I completed my first race shot to finish, (I started Hawaii Sat evening, ended about 1 nm short as time ended) and learned a lot more about my racing style. I second-guessed every turn I made fighting with angles (or was that angels). Questions were answered in the chat and coffee with NewsArtist was a help. However, I think I frustrated him by introducing him to the Android App. He got revenge by showing me the Golden Globe race, which I started 3 weeks late.

    What, dear SRC, is wrong with a more or less intelligent steering-bot.

    Is it that despicable if I would program my autopilot with

    while twa>42 steer cc ### else steer twa 42

    Or something like
    if time later than 13:40 go online
    while not on lattitude ### stay online
    else steer 270 cc
    go off line

    I would use only data from my own instruments and react only on the changing conditions local to my boat.


    If (you do not want any skipper can use data from another boat) then (make data only available to a logged-in-boat from that very same boat only)

    I logged in as guest to "RTWR 2016 - Leg 2 - Uruguay to New Zealand".

    Useless.... i tried to set course 270... after 1 second speed went from 13 knots to zero.

    Great welcome for newcomers you give.. not really quite an incentive to create an account!

    guests should be welcomed... not just tolerated!!!!

    "there are certainly many times more forums meant for political and other discussions."

    Indeed so. So why spout forth a false history of my country,Scotland, on a sailing site, and not allow that highly misleading impression to be corrected? I know you've got nothing in the brain but sailing and are largely uninterested in the wider world, but surely even the most obsessed sailor doesn't want to absorb fairy-tale information.....otherwise, in educated company he might appear to be an ill-informed, brainless dummkopf, unwittingly giving offence to Scots.

    "SOL is run with voluntary admins and resources to monitor spamming is limited."

    So my( or anyone else that feels the need)publishing a refutation of this erroneous, half-baked, ill thought-out commentary on Scottish affairs is going to result in a flood of spammers?
    Come on, the notion is utterly non-sensical.What is it about SOL that attracts so many spammers?
    I just don't believe this. This is nothing but an excuse for lazy writing, and the right to propagandise, unchallenged.
    If you can get Scotland so wrong, what else are you getting wrong?

    "since the commenting was disabled this is so far the only time someone has asked about it."

    So? Maybe the others are too frightened or too polite to object?
    I am neither.
    I hope I am not the only one that feels this way.
    Organisations where there is no dissent make me uneasy and have a creepy feel about them.

    "The fact that you have started this thread shows that visitors still have a way to express their opinions."

    A very fair point. I have raised this subject of the Disney approach to Scottish history and politics elsewhere and none of my writings on the subject have been censored or tampered with in any way.
    However, the same jokey goobledegook was churned out yet again, unaltered , this year, so my complaints have so far, not had any effect, hence my continuing objection, as any gentleman would expect, to the promulgation of this false history of my country....and the request for a front page refutation of this ongoing relentless anti- Scottish, English propaganda.

    "you volunteer to offer a solution for comments that doesn't danger the stability of the sailing engine,"

    I have two solutions.
    1) Stick to sailing and don't get involved in politics and commenting on local cultures.
    2) Continue to entertain your sailing clientele by providing some background information for races.....but allow correction of any irritating,inaccurate,false information. That might be of interest to those who take part in SOL that are NOT solely wrapped up in winning races, but have other reasons,as I do, such as archaeology, history, navigation, meteorology, geodesy and metrology.

    No.1) might be the best choice especially for SOL with its limited resources...and especially so for Scotland.
    I get English propaganda flung at me day and night. I don't want to read any more of that drivel on SOL.

Silverrudder 2018
Sailonline welcomes you to the third "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2018 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our new Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 22 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2018

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2018
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let she rip. Enjoy!
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
