The Vision of the new Race Calendar is that it is going to be exciting, fun and diverse.

The Race Calendar contains a few more races than before a month.



The mixture of races is a bit different with two Sprint Races and two Timed Races a month. There are Championships for Sprint Races, Timed Races, Ocean Races, ongoing SYC Ranking, SYC yearly championship based on one nominated race a month and Championships for the different Series e.g. the SSANZ RNI and Sailonlines tribute to the Whitbread 1989-1990 Round the World Race.

We now have more races to choose from each month, whether you want to sail all races, or to concentrate on just one Championship.

For the Buddy-Up Races the SRC will be working together with the OPS room and Marketing. In these Races we have a slightly different approach than before, in hope that it will bring us more sailors to our community.
SOLs Boathouse are going to be updated, the most will remain and a few new are to come.

Fair winds into SOLs future!

Obviously a lot of thought & planning has gone into this New Era for SOL. The graphical presentations offered here are well organized and visually appealing.

Kudos to Sassy and the Race Committee for bringing this to fruition
None so blind
I am looking for 2014 !
Great work.
Svein, Joanne, Piero & Co ... Great work !!!

Great work Sassy and the team!
Just one question. You list the Championships above, but no mention is made of a Week or Weekend Race Championship? Will these still exist alongside the Ocean Race Championship, Sprint Championship, Timed, SYC etc?
Very nice guys. Now, as you say, we can do a little planning and select where we want to concentrate our efforts.

I would now shift the list of old series and championships on the right of the home page to a "Library" tab and place the new 2014 stuff in its place! ie, Only keep here what is presently being undertaken.

it's my understanding that the final 2013 results will be "carved in stone" and replaced by the new ones.
sassy or Piero can probably give you a better answer.
Well done!

I have 2 questions.

How will the SYC Ranking work? same as before?

The SYC Championship will only include week races?

Ciao ALL my friends !! ;)

Sassy has asked me to answer some questions on his behalf..... here they are :

-----Dingo ;)

As mentioned in home page , and as announced here (2013-12-06 12:05:52 - Re: The Future Shape of Racing on Sailonline) , the existing three rankings , i.e. WEEK , WEEKEND and OCEAN will end on December 31st 2013 , and remain fixed forever as they will be showing on January 01 2014 .

SRC is working on making rewards available for those solers who will be holding podium positions at that date.

SRC is also evaluating the possibility to free Tasman 1 from any of those rankings , in case the race might not be finished by December 31st ( unlikely ) . This decision will be made further on , depending on WX .

----nacrr ;)

no change whatsoever to SYC revolving ranking as it is . That is NOT a Championship , but only the ongoing Hall of Fame of our Club , and will continue as is .

The new SYC Championship ( one race per month and based on best 10 results over 12 races ) will be one of the so called WEEK races of medium lenght , nominated each month amongst those races . This is done to differentiate the SYC championship from Ocean and Sprint ones .

----Jawz ;)

fully agree with your suggestion as to inactive series in home page . The restyling of Home page is a project on the table for sometimes hopefully soon in the future , as it takes much more tech effort than organizing the Championships ! LOL

Hope it answers all your points so far ;)

speak soon ;)

Thanks WIN.

One last remark. The Ocean Championship link is not showing in your first post. If I click on it, it goes to the SYC Championship.

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.
