    Hi Bimmer,

    What is the .vmg files? And how do I open those files?

    I know that the .csv files are used by Qt, but I don't know what the .vmg are used for.

    I just noticed that we now can get a boat info with a profile, a picture, the polar AND a list of all the races the boat was used here on SOL. All this summarized on a single page PDF.
    How clever, and interesting information to have.
    To whoever came up with this idea;
    Thank You !

    One of the beauty of SOL is it's simplicity. These rules are very simple to understand and simple to follow.
    Well done.
    Thank you all involved in running this great platform.

    Hi IANDOG,

    During practice the finish line does NOT stop your boat.

    Newport to Bermuda Race

    We have sailed this traditional race twice on SOL with the last one just finished.
    I am sure it was a painful experience for the ones caught by the blue arrows, the so called Bermuda High.

    For some it was a delightful race, but I am sure that for everyone it was an intrigue and demanding experience.

    The real life Bermuda Race is sailed every two years, next on to be in 2016. Over the many years of existence, there was fast runs, very fast runs, slow runs and painful runs but always very interesting.

    I would like respectfully ask the Sailonline Race Committee to consider including this race on our racing calendar, once every two years, always starting on the 3rd Friday of June.

    Thank you very much,

    I would like to thank all podium sailors who take time to write race reports.
    I don't remember when this trend started, but it is fascinating and instructive feedback reading.

    Thanks mates,

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

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. 😊
