    Proposal for new SOL races "The Roman Route Series" ...

    The inspiration comes from this website that describes the ancient routes of the Romans:

    One last consideration and then I close the topic.

    "SOL RULES OF RACING (‘ SRR ’) 2018"
    - Rule 8 "Protest Procedures".
    Rule 8 provides that "When the leaderboard has been updated the race results will be declared official and prizes (if involved) will be attributed and delivered."
    If the ranking will be confirmed, by posting the result on the SOL home page, and the cancellation of points and prizes will be confirmed, this decision, in my opinion, violates rule 8 ...

    Dikk,
    thanks for your answer, I hope others SOLers write their opinion to help improve SOL roules.

    No one answers?
    Perhaps no one has noticed that the reason given for the cancellation of the score in Boston to Plymouth is the following:
    "SRC recognizes that this lack of access has compromised the finishing line of many yachts in the Galera race in a manner that cannot be rectified and that some yachts in the Plymouth race may also have been compromised".
    Writing "some yachts in the Plymouth race may also have been compromised", in the next races, at the slightest problem with the server or with the weather update, anyone (even the last in the rankings) will be able to officially protest and demand the cancellation of the race reporting as an example this official document.

    (In real races, the "server crash" problem does not exist. In SOL we need to understand what to decide in case of "server crash".
    Can we imagine that a "server crash" is similar to a "break on board" that hit everyone at the same time?
    I believe this is the right choice ...)

    Dear SOLers,
    I just learned that the Boston to Plymouth TransAt 2019 race was also canceled and, as a "virtual winner", I want to express my disagreement ...
    In spite of myself, I "accept" the decision, but I believe that the reasons written in the official SRC document are absolutely debatable and have not considered the following reasons:
    1) During the Mami-Lisbon race (canceled due to problems with the classification of some boats) I was first in the leading group but the reasons given for the cancellation were clear and unexceptionable. The Technical Team has objectively verified that a software problem has slowed down some boats and this is clearly an irrevocable decision;
    2) During the Boston to Plymouth TransAt 2019 race, at the time of the server crash, I was first with more than a mile ahead (second Beliberda) and after the server reactivation I was always first with a similar advantage over the second (Bimmer?);
    3) I've always been at the top of the Boston to Plymouth TransAt 2019 race since the first miles;
    4) All the boats in the race have suffered the same problem in an absolutely equal way and, consequently, all the participants have suffered a similar damage without having created conditions of advantage for the leader;
    5) At the end of the race I won with an advantage of about 2.5 miles over the second (similar before the crash);
    6) By admission of the same SRC, no one participant in the race has presented an official protest;

    I'm convinced that if the consequences of the technical problem fall on SOL users, there is only the risk of discouraging users from participating in SOL races.

    I’m a SOL partner and I don't want to see SOL decline: I think the right time has come to try to re-emerge.

    I kindly ask You to write Your opinion.

    In a nutshell, I only accept "motivated" decisions and don’t accept decisions based on "hypotheses" ...

    Soon You will have news about my stay in SOL.

    Fair Winds to all.
    Carlo Alberto

    "Big Hug Championship"
    I think it's the right name for the memory championship.
  • Joao - psail
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee
    Dear SOL Managers and SYC Members,
    what happened these days has saddened us all.
    Since I'm in SOL, the SOLers that are sailing eternal seas are many and I think it's time to organize a special championship in their memory.
    I imagine two annual races to be played on the first day of spring (March 20 northern hemisphere and September 22 southern hemisphere).
    Why the first day of spring?
    Simply because spring is the icon of rebirth and I'm sure that our friends have been reborn in a better world.
    "Springs Memory Championship"?
    In my mind it doesn't have to be a sad event but a sailing party to sail happily with old friends.
    Thanks for your attention.
    How would Joao wrote, "Viva SOL" and "Viva Solers"

    Dear Joao,
    I still do not realize what has happened to you, it is difficult to metabolize this news, but I want to imagine you who are sailing for an eternal trip around the world on a sailboat.
    We have never met but, between us, there has always been a sincere friendship based on mutual respect and "goliardic relationships" that are part of our nature.
    Opponent and friend, a loyal and sincere competitor always ready to "play psychologically" with his opponents: a great man and a great sailor who embodies all the best qualities of the perfect sportsman and the perfect family man.
    Thank you for all you have been able to give me in these years of friendship.
    "pressure Joao, Pressure, PRESSURE" !!! ...
    You started too early but, sooner or later, I'll join you, remember that!
    A big hug to you and your family.
    Carlo Alberto

Current Races:

Return from Lindisfarne 2019
In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 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 Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!
