A3 - Leg3 Hobart to Sydney is ready for preview

For some weird reason the text in the description looks fine in the properties editor but will not format when I load the completed file in GE.

Let me know how it looks when you load it.

Leg 3 now set up and ready for preview.

UPDATE: 11 August: Leg 3 is now archived

Tyger - all the description etc is perfect as usual :-)

To view this leg, as you all probably know by now, log in as the sol boat:

USERNAME: sol
PASSWORD: sol

and then click here

The leg is open now for viewing via the sol boat but I will close it (temporarily) from tomorrow (Friday 10) afternoon until the weekend, as I want to be sure the SOL server is happy with the load of three active races (the Turkey race is a particularly large file!). If all is sweet as, then I will reopen A3-Leg3 and let you know when I have done so!!

:-D Another fab job, Tyger!

Another masterpiece.. I love reading the description of each race. Really sets the context perfectly.

The race is set up but as I am creating a new weathersystem for the area and just missed getting it set up in time for the update a little while ago, we will need to wait until tonight's wx to fill in before going any further. I suppose we could check the race with another wx system but better its all "good" and then if there are things to amend/correct/change we do it in one go.

:-)

I'll post the link later today.
Leg 4 is now available for previewing.

You know the procedure now, just log in as the sol boat:

USERNAME: sol
PASSWORD: sol

and then click here

The leg is open now for viewing via the sol boat but I will close it again tomorrow (Wednesday) about 1600utc until we get the timed race underway and then once loads are OK I will reopen this leg for preview for a few days.

Not sure this time about the placing of the Harbour Mark or the North Head one... seems a bit counter-intuitive for the course, but maybe that's me! edited:all sorted after convo + Tyger.

What do you think guys?

UPDATE: The race is now archived. If anyone wants it re-opened for review just holler!

Super... I like the race, like the legs... No complaints from me... as happy as an... oyster :-)
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
A3 - Leg5 Brisbane to Hamilton Island

Another leg for preview. We're getting into the Great Barrier Reef now so navigation will be a challenge.

See attached .kmz for your consideration.

Leg 5 should be named "Insomniac's Special". On par with Channel Is Ramble and Round Turkey. Lovely...
:-)
Yup... router boys will find the going tough... especially the sailors who use routers for all the races and have come to rely on them... So many course changes you can just as well do it SOTP

Sorry folks, I didn't get an auto-notification that this thread had been updated so didn't spot the new/draft Leg 5 until just now.

I have a couple of errands to run today but will get this set up soonest!!

This is what Aaron's mom has to say about it:

"We are all really excited that people we don't even know are putting so much effort and are so enthusiastic about it. At last a race Aaron wouldn't need to set his alarm for, or perhaps not. You have no idea how many times I heard "XTZ!!::" coming from his room when he realized he had slept through another alarm ring. He would be so mad!!!"

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. 😊
