    Board » In memoriam
    What a sad news. :(

    We often ended up on nearby BBQ's. He because of his nightsleep and me because i got sidetracked... so he was one of the first SOLers i got to know and one of the very few on Facebook, where he kept me update with Kiwi Sailing.

    RIP Steve, fair Winds and following Seas, whereever you may sail now.

    Ok...it's a clear Advantage if one can read!

    But the other Problem still remains.

    Even with sol-client-0.25 it says "Problem while parsing" when opening the downloaded File with the Installer.

    I just tried to download:

    sol-client-0.25.apk seems to be missing (Error404)

    sol-client.apk seems to have a corrruption in the File (got an Errormessage saying there was a problem while parsing the File)

    Any suggestions?

    My two cents on this Topic:

    Make it a Series with no drops. Remebering AGages Efforts on SOL, the winner of this series should need to pay maximum efforts too.

    Don't let the gaps between the Stages become too long, to keep the Series together. A Weekend-Race every Month doesn't look much like a connected Series...
    I don't know how fixed the dates have to be according to other scheduled races, but maybe the gaps might match the time the winner spent on the last Leg.

    As it is an Aussie series the Starts shall be during Aussie-daytime which is early morning or middle of the night in Europe and USA, so starts should be scheduled on Weekends as it might be easier to stay awake if there's no Alarm ringing next morning. ;)

    What about including AGage's Tour currently running as Stage 1 into that Series?

    Hats off! A great Sailor and SOLer had passed away.

    Farewell AGage, sail along in Peace!

  • Re: Proposal for Performance Handicapping
    Board » General Discussion
    Well... getting an initial Ranking is always difficult because of the fact that it's initial. ;)
    I think no one would take an initial Value that serious to complain about it. Maybe one can mark it as initial or not confident in the Ranking.

    I don't know the formula for getting an initial Ranking. If i would be asked how to get one that's converging relatively fast to a "real" value, i would suggest to take the arithmetical Medium of his ratings so far, until he's sailed a certain amount of races, say fifteen.

    If that's too difficult to do, i would reduce the minimum number of Races to be sailed for an initial ranking, but introducing a Mechanism to lower this ranking afterward, if necessary.
  • Re: Proposal for Performance Handicapping
    Board » General Discussion
    Regarding unlucky SLI's, missed Wx's on TWA or whatever may completly ruin a race. I had a couple of thoughts how to handle that for a Handicap.
    But i didn't get any idea how to judge a wrong but continously and ambitious sailed Strategy from a SLI, an oversleped Wx, a lost connection or even cruising mode.

    Leaving bad races out might lead to frustrated Beginners with one luckily achived good Position unable to get down to more suitable ranking while it simultaniously leads to suitable Handicaps for skilled but lazy Navigators.

    Counting all races will have similar more or less unwanted Sideeffects.

    And at least there will be two Groups of People; one that is willing to see how they are doing against very skilled Sailors with high-power Computers and very expensive Software in one specific Race and another Group willing to get the lowest possible Handicap in order to look like beeing skilled. ;-)

    So i got to the conclusion that there is no right or wrong Formular and no Formular better than others. I would suggest to compute both and let Folks decide which they will use for themselves.

  • Re: Big difference SOL map and Sailplanner
    Board » Technical Support
    Differences in Maps are quite normal and do happen even in official Maps as a Result of Errors in Positiondetection by the original Measurer.

    Did you use the latest SOL-Weather from Brainaids Toolbox (http://sol.brainaid.de/sailonline/toolbox/)?
    If so there might only be small Differences due to different interpolation schemes.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
