Me too. Set DC when zoomed-in for the finish line and overshot it by a significant margin. Never done that before. DC seemed to fire about a miole after the orange dot point.

The forum posting on the beta doesn't work currently.

The reason is that when I copied data over to beta I changed everyone's email address to be xxx@yyy.disabled to prevent accidental email sent to anyone during my tests. The forum software currently refuses posting because of this.

Exactly the same thing happened to my DC overnight
For folks who are displaying a difference between the Orange dots for CC & TWA set a DC using each then check the DC list to see if the Times listed correspond
None so blind
I know when I first reported the problem it was because I had just done that - to check my DC would fire at the right place. It was the TWA dot that was under reporting by a few minutes. The DC did fire at the correct time, it was the TWA dot that was wrong.

The DC I had that fired late I also checked and at that time both dots appeared where they should have.

(just as an aside, due to lightning detection software on my PC the clock on my PC is accurate to within 1000ths of a second with timeservers, so I don't think it is a time sync issue)
It's not particularlly important but I have made two runs and only one shows in the boat list and also in the leaderboard. Is this a fault??
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
I think during timed races in the boat ranking list you have your fastest time listed plus your current run.

As far as the leader-board (thru ? on top right) it should show all runs but I can't see it and don't think it is working for this race as the client will have an internal link to the board not the external link required as this is on a different site.

same problem with yellow dots, with both OS X and windows xp
fullplane?? no, was me, don't know why... same problem with yellow dots, with both OS X and windows xp
Hi! Started boat 2 after having finished #1. I missed the finish line, butwhen I want to steer it correct, the only boat I can get in contact with is #1! And of course I can't make it move, since it has finished the race. Strange... /Musigny

Susac X2
Welcome to the beautiful calm waters of the Adriatic Sea for the virtual running of the Susac X2 race which is a real-life race organized by the JK Mornar Sailing Club based in Split, Croatia. Although we, unfortunately, aren’t running this magnificent race with the real fleet this year, we hope to make this possible in the coming editions. This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
