    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.
