    I pledge to sail SOTP for these races. Not a big commitment as it is how I always sail.
    Hopefully all entrants will sail SOTP so that we won't be able to check our individual dead reckoning against those that use routers and other aids.

    Help!!!
    My boat, brewman, has rounded all marks today in the Lisboa timed race, but only the Vasco de Gama Bridge & Barrerio marks show "Rounded". The boat track clearly goes around Bugio Lighthouse, yet it does not say "Rounded"> All other marks beyond have same issue.
    How can this be?
    What Can be done?
    Thanks, Bruce Flournoy

  • SYC Ranking System
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Was pondering the mechanisms of the SYC overall rankings and noticed that all races are given equal weight, regardless of number of entrants. So, for example, a 150 finish in a popular race with 500 entrants is worth the same as a 150 finish of 151 in a less popular race. This seems somehow inequitable, as one is a top 30% finish while the other could have merely crossed the start line.
    I don't have a solution, or even pretend to know if it needs a solution - Just want to throw it out for discussion...

Up Helly Aa 2020

Martinique Sprint 2020
One of the surprising things about France is that you find nice little departments of it everywhere; here, par example, in the Caribbean Sea's Windward Isles. Yes, Martinique is part of the European Union, and for a few Euro coin you can charter an F18 catamaran to explore the beaches along its eastern coast. There's an online race on here as well on Saturday, January 25; just 21.5nm from Île Cabrits to Le Robert. Why not join in?

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
