    taken by an Italian government site of weather forecast:

    PROBLEMA MODELLI: Avviso agli utenti.

    Nell'ultima settimana abbiamo avuto diversi problemi con i modelli: sono saltate alcune "corse" inficiando molti servizi, tra cui le mappe vento&mare.
    Il problema è dovuto alla quasi saturazione della banda internet dell'NCEP (National Center Environmental Prediction della NOAA), causato da una sempre maggiore richiesta di dati dai vari centri del mondo e sopratutto dal recente aumento di risoluzione del modello globale GFS passato da circa 30 km a circa 13 km di risoluzione. Infatti i file disseminati seppur ad una risoluzione minore (di circa 25 km) pesano circa 4 volte di più dei precedenti (circa 300 MB a file).
    Nella segnalazione allegata la NOAA rassicura sul fatto che sono a conoscenza del problema e stanno studiando una soluzione, tra cui un aumento di banda disponibile, previsto per Aprile - Giugno. Fino ad allora faremo del nostro meglio per continuare a garantire il servizio senza interruzioni, scusandoci sin da ora per gli inconvenienti causati e futuri.

    "NCEP Central Operations systems -- the NCEP FTP Server (“ftpprd”) , NOMADS and MAG systems, and the recently-implemented MADIS and MRMS applications, are being affected by an Internet capacity issue at the NOAA Network Operations Center. The manifestation of this issue is slow data retrieval from these services. The root cause of the issue is that these dissemination systems utilize the NOAA Internet link and that link has reached saturation, especially at those times of the day when the major models are being disseminated. The slowness has been exacerbated by the recent GFS model upgrade, which gave users access to the new high-resolution dataset and also some of the existing output files increased in size dramatically with the model resolution increase.

    The plan to address this Internet capacity issue is for the NOAA NOC to increase the capacity of the NOAA Internet link. This activity is currently in the procurement phase, with an FY15Q3 (April – June) implementation goal. NCEP is working closely with the NOAA NOC to track the progress of this upgrade. In the interim, NCEP is investigating some stop-gap measures that could provide some very limited relief.

    We apologize for the impact this has had on our customers. We recognize that the ability to retrieve our products in a timely fashion is very important to our users and I assure you we are working to address the situation.

    Chief, NCEP Central Operations, Production Management Branch"

  • Re: 2014 RACE CALENDAR Q 2
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    Hello guys,
    great job for the new calendar.
    Q1* provides an excellent overview of the quarter, while Q2* is full of useful details.
    I think it would be even more useful to insert in Q2*, for each race, also the date close to the time.
    Is it possible?
    thanks
    Mat

    * only today I realized I have used Q1 and Q2 instead of P1 and P2, I apologize!

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
