...And I don't have any idea why triple clicking does what you say. At least for me with FF it just moves the map as expected.

A new version of the client has been published. You can simply refresh/reload browser tab.

If this new version doesn't work for you, let us know. You can use the older version by appending
?version=old
to the url, or (for the current two races) by clicking the links below.
Dondra to Sanya 2020
BA-Rio 2020

What has been changed? Here is a list of the most important changes (credit to ij):
- Tack/Gybe button label split to either “Tack” or “Gybe”
- POIs show local wind info
- When WX panel is focused, left and right arrow keys step time backwards and forwards
- Minor tweaking to mouse handling code to prepare for touch interface improvements for ruler and steer tools (should not change anything but may still break something)
- Highlight race leader setting
- Attempt to prevent browser’s autocompletion for text input fields
- Chat input text area style changes (one additional line and scrollbar enabled when necessary)
- Boat scale setting
- Boat list save/restore
- UI changes to enable Touch UI
- WX panel styling improvements (roughly constant width)
- Control panel layout tweaks, ranking tab in particular (to solve iPad UI issues)
- Chat odd/even bg color tweak to hopefully avoid some “bg jumps” when new messages appear
- Fix stale boat filter when a boat list that was in “show only” state is deleted
- TWS contours. There are still some horizontal gap artifacts in contours and when wx area appears more than once, only one of them draws contours currently; in practice, neither limits significantly the usefulness of contours. Contour density is configurable through Settings.
- Quick-access buttons for show TWS/TWD (beside the wind arrow/barb)
- Ranking tab click vs mouseup problem (reported to occur with Edge)

PS: for early access to updates like this, you can append
?version=dev
to the URL. This "dev"-version gets updated more frequently (and without notice). Drawback is that there may be more bugs. At this moment the "dev"-version is not ahead any updates.
Guys, so far it works well. Thank you for your time and patience.

As an improvement, could it be possible when you set a DC, that the predictors (both) starting at DC point are shown on the map?

Regards from Altair

Hi Altair,

"Planning predictors" have been suggested also elsewhere and "aiming from DC dot" has been one potential item on my todo list. They are doable, but the former only on medium term as it will require some predictor code refactoring first (I need to do that anyway at some point but it's also somewhat scary given the importance of not breaking the predictor :-)).

Planning predictors, however, is one of those features that would clearly give the client abilities beyond what has been traditionally available and I'd like to see some kind of discussion whether such features are something that should be included into the client or not.

As regards your earlier request about saving the chat messages locally to preserve longer chat history, I'm unlikely to implement that as I view it as an attack vector.
Hi,
Is there a way to get rid of/reduce the "shadow-effect" ??
In the flash version you just had to click on one of the other boats.

I don't understand what "shadow effect" is?

--
i.
OK - it's like you see 2 boats just after each other. The first boat have the small dot where the mast is supposed to be and the second boat is the "shadow". The first boat is a bit more bold.
When you point the cursor on the second boat, the boat name appear down in the left corner. It disappear shortly and become visible again.
Both on FF and chrome.

/SKOVSER
What you describe is caused by the different update times of the fleet, and your own boat. The fleet (all boats) are updated once a minute, so they make jumps of 1 minute. Your own pink boat is updated more frequently, and will jump ahead before the fleet catches up.

Your boat is also part of the fleet, so an version of your boat is updated together with the rest of the fleet once every minute. It looks like it is sailing behind your pink boat. In the Flash client this boat is made invisible, buy you can make it visible by clicking your own name in the leaderboard-tab.

Personally I always liked to see my shadow, so I could better compare how I was doing relative to the fleet. But it may be confusing to have it always visible, especially to new SOLers.

I think you problem would be solved with the following feature:
Make drawing of own boat in fleet invisible unless own boat is selected in the ranking-tab.
Even better may be to have three options in the settings: {always show, never show, only when selected}, with as default one of the last two.
Thank you Kroppy, for an in-depth explanation.
I don't consider it a problem, just a bit annoying ;-)
Your second feature options sounds great - Thanks!

Is it possible to have the "Settings" saved until changed? Right now you have to renew all of your preferred screen features every time you log into a new race. This is a bit irritating.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:

Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
