All is OK with both races on my computer. A couple of things you might like to try.

1. Empty browser cache completely and even run a registry/disc cleaner for good measure.

2. Check that you are running the latest version of Flashplayer.

These are things that have helped in the past on the couple of occasions I had a problem.

Sometimes, too, I have read in chat that ISPs can run very slowly and as a result time-out before the SOL download completes.

Hope this helps?

Hi Bigstorm, have you got another browser on the coputer you can test? Most of the time cleaning the temporary files of the browser helps.

Another thing you can try is log in as sol.
boatname sol password sol, this is a comunity boat that can help force new weather.
I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
Hi,

Well I'm in now on another computor at work. When I get home I will check how things go and try your suggestion. Problem last night could not even get the web site to come up to try anything. It must be me because I went aground and everyone else went on their marry way. I never had this problem before.Plus all the other web sites where ok.

This experience must be very frustrating. I know I would be pulling my hair out, as the saying goes, if it were happening to me.

I have one minor suggestion to add to the above list of general remedies. Perhaps it is something you have already tried but did not mention as whatever procedures you went through did not make any difference so far.

Delete all cookies in your browser file that are from the Sailonline site.

I actually fixed a problem with the site in the past, although I don't recall the nature of the symptoms now, but I was trying everything to get back to a clean slate, including dumping my browser altogether & re-installing it. I cannot offer an explanation as to why this could be the culprit except that if it does the trick it is worth a shot.

None so blind

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024


Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024


Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
