Board » Technical Support » Again SOL has a very big problem with finishing times.

SOL you seem to have a finish position problem still. I know you don't want to fix it but I am tired of it. My boat finishes at the line and turns head to wind. OK. Boats that finish up to 2 minutes behind me by turning head to wind finish 10 seconds ahead. That is BULL SHI%. I am tired of beating boats to the finish line only to have them beat me. Can't you guys figure out how to get these boats to finish correctly. Don't give that junk about the clock and decimal seconds. That is not where the problem is. Boats that turn head to wind at the finish line are finished. Pure and simple. Boats that turn head to wind 2 minutes later CANNOT beat you by 10 seconds...........
Hi Acme. I am afraid I still have no substantial indication of such a bug. What can happen though is that you might have had a week connection and the visual updates of the other boats on your computer was lagging a little. You say 2 minutes... We do not have such long update times on the servers so it really sounds like a connection problem. Further, the important thing here is that the server is doing ok even if your visual updating lags, don´t you agree?

Ahhh, OK that explains why when you zoom right in on your boat it sometimes looks like it is ahead of boats that are listed as being ahead of it.

It allways looks that your own boat is a little bit ahead because your own boats position updates more often than the other boats.

Hi,ACME RACING,
I have been several times in same condition(not 2 min. however, and concluded that I have to follow the boats arriving with me at about the same time.It usually happens that those boats were continually in front of you and than at arrival somehow they are delayed and you arrive first while in fact those boats already arrived if you look from another computer.
Therefor Jakob explained it well and you do not have to get so upset.

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
