  • Re: REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES
    Board » Technical Support
    having been away I have tried this evening and the race is now operating correctly. Can you please advise me what was done and was I the only person to have been affected?
  • Re: REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES
    Board » Technical Support
    Thanks for your help. I have done the steps you suggested but to no avail. The problem is only on the 1 race, the Lisbon & timed race both operate normally.
    That said this race does work ok on my laptop - the only difference is the laptop is Win7 32 bit & the PC is Wn7 64 bit - not sure if that is a factor?

  • REPORTING TECHNICAL ISSUES
    Board » Technical Support
    I am having serious problems with the Santa Monica race it that the messages posted will not clear so I am unable to steer my ship or in fact do anything.
    However this does highlight a problem that there is no (appears) way to report a technical fault to be looked at quickly and reported back.
    This is the second problem recently and it is destroying my enjoyment of SOL - I'm not prepared to spend hours racing just to be told that because someone has been disadvantaged teh race ius scrubbed, yet never seems to happen when I havea problem

    I was very disappointed in the decision making process by which, because of the outage, the results were nullified. As far as I can see it, no-one gained an advantage because of the outage, it just affected some more than others. I have also been in a position where previous outages have affected my race, but i would not expect special treatment, which seems to be the case here. Consider a yacht demasting, would all the rest of the racers have been penalised? I think in future that, unless it is proven that one player gained an advantage then the races should be left to run.

    Hello. I am getting an RSL Error 1 of 2, Error#2046 when signing into a race normally.

    Works OK on Classic, have tried changing address line to "beta=true" but error comes back.

  • SOL Improvements - Radar
    Board » General Discussion
    If anyone is looking for improvements to SOL then a radar system would be great - I'm fed up of running into rocks I can only see on maximum magnification!

    As SOL knows where the rocks are and where the boat is and the course that is headed then perhaps a "collision alarm" at say 5nm? I would not suggest any form of auto system, you might be deliberatly aiming to crash into those rocks for a BBQ or something!

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
