If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

    Thanks, ij. The problem appears to have been in my own computer, as it righted itself when I changed screens and then went back to the original. Why this should have occurred is beyond my knowledge of programming

  • Colour of boat track and size of the time marker
    Board » Technical Support
    The boat track in both the COG and TWA is the same colour which is dull blueish-black, and the time balls on the two tracks are both small and red. The one chosen used to be a lot larger. I can find no button in the Misc. Settings panel to change this. Has the SOL system for this function been changed?
    p.s.Thank you! The problem had corrected as soon as I went bask to the race screen.

  • Legality of the use of extra zoom on the apparent size of end points of finish line
    Board » Flag Officers » Rules and Decisions
    When the end point of the finish line is examined on extra zoom, is it legal to set course very close to the point and still legally finish, even when, on standard zoom, the course would cross over the edge of the round dot?

  • The Two Oceans race
    Board » Technical Support
    The race info says 'Lv to Stbd' at the Seal Island mark, but the diagram shows an Arrow indicating 'Lv to Port'. This problem should be cleared up prior to the race start....

  • Re: ESRW - a proper RTW race
    Board » Flag Officers » Race proposals
    Other than the Suez and Panama Canals, why not a 'real' RTW Race? Three legs---long, yes, but so is an IRL RTW! It would give a "Great" choice of actual route to the SOL competitors!

    Is it possible to have the "Settings" saved until changed? Right now you have to renew all of your preferred screen features every time you log into a new race. This is a bit irritating.

  • Re: Enabling Flash player on an Android tablet
    Board » Technical Support
    I have noted a few irregularities in the HTML5 client, and hope they can be repaired. It is hard to break the habits of years---for instance, centering any point on the screen now requires 3 clicks, rather than 2. The actuation of a course choice needs 2 not 1 clicks. Stopping the boat at a start/finish line requires the entry of TWA = (0) not (0.00000) or (0.) Realizing some entry hasn't worked as expected can make for mistakes that are very frustrating....

    After some frustrations, I found that the action to center any point, at max zoom, on the comp screen (which I always previously used to check on clearance of headlands, islands etc.,) using a double click with the cursor on that position, no longer worked. I have now accidentally found that it still operates, but with a TRIPLE clicking.
    Is it just that I had missed something, or is this new info to everybody else?

    Bimmer:- What is AGL and where do I find it? I'm not a router user, but sometimes getting out of a restricted start area can be a real chore late at night.

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024


Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
