    I think just forbidding jumping will solve 99 % of the problem. What will be left are accidental jumps.

    Why no forbid SLI jumping immediately and enforce it through the umpire system? I think that would be a good way to test the umpire system, and we would get rid of one of the issues causing disagreement and discussion.

    I think it is great the rules get formalised and compiled into one clear document, and the rules look good to me.

    The only comment I have is SLI jumping, the current formulation is quite ambiguous and as such does not provide much additional value. The current formulation gives the impression that SLI jumping is allowed, but not considered recommendable behavior, a mixed message, which should not have a place in a rule book.

    I think it is clear to everyone jumping is done at own risk. If you don't want to forbid SLI jumping, I'd leave that out altogether. On the other hand, as I've stated earlier elsewhere, I would not oppose forbidding SLI jumping, and it could easily be enforced through the umpire system. You either explicitly allow it, explicitly forbid it, or don't mention it in the rules.

    As a side note, so long as SLI jumping is not explicitly forbidden, I will consider it allowed and I will utilise it to the extent I see it useful. I hope I will not be considered a cheater because I do something allowed by the rules.

  • Panama Canal Challenge
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Course summary: Race from Atlantic to Pacific through the Panama Canal

    Boats: First 47.7

    Distance: 35 nm

    Estimated duration: 4-8 hours

    Race type: Timed

    Description: We take our Firsts from the Atlantic to the Pacific through the Panama Canal. Picking the correct time for the traverse is of utmost importance as the canal leaves little room for maneuvering!

    For easier viewing, I included pics of the course both on Google Earth as well as SOL chart.

  • Round Kumlinge
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Course summary: Quick daycruise around the island of Kumlinge

    Boats: Swan 36 for timed races, F18 or Seacart 30 for sprints

    Estimated duration: 2-6 hours

    Race type: Timed or sprint

    Description: We race around the beautiful island of Kumlinge. The trianglish shape of the course should make sure the race is not just about rounding corners and/or marks. Part of the fun is picking your route through the beautiful Finnish archipelago, unfortunately we have limited possibilities to simulate the myriads of underwater rocks on the course!

    For easier viewing, I included pics of the course both on Google Earth as well as SOL chart.

    "Previously there was a small "feature" that when a boat started a race with a command during towback time...
    ...This is why sometimes you would get the first turn after start free of performance hit but it is now fixed."

    Ahh, so this was not an undocumented feature, but a bug;)

    I'd be ok to change my name to karriv_R to indicate that I use a router. If that was not clear to everyone sofar;)

    My understanding is that the weather comes directly from NOAA.

    Some manipulation is done when a new wx is loaded to the game, namely the firs hour is interpolated from the "old" wx to the "new" wx so there is no discontinuity.

    Maybe someone who knows better the stuff under the hood can explain this better.

Aland Sea TIMED Race 2021
Norrtalje Segelsallskap, 70km NE of Stockholm was founded in 1920, and time was when the society’s season opened with a challenging offshore race from the club line off Flaten island at the mouth of the long and narrow Norrtaljeviken, out onto a triangular course around the Aland Sea, to finish at Simpnas slightly to the north on Bjorko island - some 78nm in total. A fine race that SOL, being from these parts, ran annually up until 2013. Last run in autumn 2018, we return here to race the course again in the form a TIMED RUN in our flashy Club Swan 50s.
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.

CCA Delivery Cruise 1 2021 - Sandwich MA to Halifax NS

The Cruising Club of America invites you to join them on a (virtual) delivery cruise starting from Sandwich, Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod in the USA to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, some 354nm away. Once we clear the tip of Cape Cod at Race Point our rhumb line course will be 70 deg T for 225nm across the Gulf of Maine to Cape Sable NS, so the best delivery departure window for sparing the crew and gear pounding into a northeast winter gale across Browns Bank will likely be following a frontal passage with strong favorable westerly winds. You may choose one of two boats, both tailored for cruising and new to Sailonline's boathouse, so flip a coin, study their Particulars sheets and make ready! You may start at any time after 1900utc on 8 February 2021 and you must arrive in Halifax by 4 March at 2300utc.

Haifa to Sao Vicente - 2021 ESRW - Leg 1
Welcome to bonknhoot’s alternative round the world race, there where it is wide, in six legs, following the setting sun – the ESRW Equatorial Sailonline Round the World Race; equatorial to differentiate it from more traditional antarctical circumnavigations. Expect then to cross the equator frequently, although on this 3500nm first leg from Haifa to the Cape Verdes in Ker 40s you should probably stay north of it. Being a proper ocean race, there are no intermediate waypoints, but please try to leave Tangiers to port anyway.
