  • Re: Day/Night Changes
    Board » General Discussion
    There seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction aimed at the developers for giving us the day/night mode.

    It should be remembered that this feature came about because some players asked for it. The developers did not suck the idea out of thin air.

    Give them a break folks, they are doing their best and need all of our support.

  • Feature request for Flash Client
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi Guys, keep up the good work, this toy is great.

    Any chance of a tickbox or something to hide tracks? (Flash Client)

    I have found that when the winds are very light and your screen is cris-crossed with the tracks of other boats, it is very difficult to get a clear view of what the winds are doing. Pleeeeease.

    Cheers

    Hi Kalle

    ANother bit to add to this bug/feature.

    In Firefox, even though all the boats move as they should, the distance and bearing information that appears in blue next to you pointer appears to be measured from the position your boat was when you last refreshed, not from where your boat currently is.

    Cheers

    Got firefox problem sorted. I was connecting to http://sailonline.org/windy/run/103/#. Client would open but no data. As soo as I chnaged URL to http://www.sailonline.org/windy/run/103/# (Added www.) then data came and all OK.

    AND, interesting, all boats are updated and move correctly every minute. So looks like a problem when running in IE7.

    Cheers

    Thanks Kalle.

    It def does not seem to move other boats. I have left my screen idle for 10 mins. Please see teh result in teh atatched.

    One other issue that is prob related also, a Grey version of my boat if left behind while the Pink version hops forward. Is this correct?

    BTW, running IE7 on XP and Flash 9,0,124,0

    See the attached screenshot of what I mean.

    Oddly enough, If I open a new tab withing the same IE7 browser session, it forces an update and all boats, including my grey version, hop to the correct place.

    I have tried Firefox to see if same issue there but so far I cannot get the Flash client to run properly on there. Opens up but no data downloaded.

    Cheers

    HI Guys

    I notice that when running the flash client, my boat moves in near-real-time. Other boats do not move though.

    Is this correct?

    Cheers

  • DC's gone missing
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi Guys. Dont't know if it was the recent "action" by Kalle, but I notice that my Start DC's which I set a few days back have gone AWOL. I have reset them now if if it was the "Archiving" of the race that caused it, you may have some unhappy peeps tomorrow.

    Cheers

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
