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 » Sailonline Race Committee » 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

    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 » Sailonline Race Committee » 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.

Uruguay to New Zealand 2022
After a 6 year hiatus, we return to race the tricky route from Punta del Este in Uruguay to Auckland, New Zealand. Our former winner "longreacher" covered this route taking 16 days 10 hours 10 minutes and 44 seconds and he used the same boat. Let's see if we can bite into his record.

South China Sea Race 2022
For our second Seven Seas of Asia race, we invite you to Taiwan, where a charter fleet of Cape31's await you for a circa 2100nm race around a triangular course through the politically and probably meteorologically-also tricky waters of the South China Sea. Beware of lurking submarines and battleships and keep clear of firing ranges!

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
