  • Another good Soler leaves us
    Board » In memoriam
    Hi All.

    My brother, Henry Snoek, passed away on Friday morning 7 June. Sailed under the boat name Henrys. He struggled with PKD and spent the last 5 years on Dialysis. Towards the end he had to withdraw from SOL as he had to deal with his physical challenges as the PKD got worse.
    His last win was the Cape2Rio 2021. Picture attached of Henry with his prizes.
    Henry was brought to SOL through my introduction and spent many an enjoyable hour during his retirement on this platform.

    Hi Piero and the rest of the admin team.

    As a long term Soler, since 2009, let me be the first to say Thank You for the tireless efforts put in to keep my online hobby/stress distraction platform going strong for so many years.

    Although I could comment further regarding the matter and only in support of the team. Let me just leave it on a positive note.

    I appreciate you all

    I pressed on the above link at the Dingo category in the 'Links' tab listed above.

    It took me to the PDF no problem

    Ah. I think I have solved my problem.
    Its required to paste lat, long into the "location" box as normal.
    It largely works the same but with a tweak, Alt left click on the mouse brings up a data point on the screen. Copy the lat long and paste into Opt Angles...BUT remove the degrees symbols!

    Hi Bimmer

    On the old flash SOL dashboard system I could press alt and click on the screen to copy a "location' and then paste this into the Optimun Angles tool. Is there something similar to do with the new client?

    Cheers

    So sad to hear this news.

    I have worked it out. The coords must be decimal and without the degrees symbols. Set this up in settings. Otherwise its the same almost. Alt and click then there is a box that opens up. Copy the coords into Agages tool and remove the symbols and off you go!

    Hi Kroppyer. Please can I ask you to put on the To-Do list a colour selection option for the Predictor line. Henrys has colour blindness and the colour definition is not good for his eyesight. Many Thanks

    Hi Piero

    I just checked and I see that I did my first race 4 days after yours on 22 July 2009. Quite a lot of water passed under our boats since those days. Now whereas I have done over 744000 nm to gain only 3 wins you have done only half that and gained 80 wins!!!

    What a legend!! Enjoy the sabbatical and I am glad you remain with SOL and in the engine room.

    Regards
    George - Jawz

    ...//...

    :) There is a saying that there is no pill for stupid! I also have hugely cut back on my races and stick these days to the Ocean series largely. Not to get any more wins but my aim is to get to 1 million nautical miles!!!

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
