    FYI, SRC has nothing to do with brainaid's NMEA proxy or my SOL data pages.

    Unfortunately the poll-system in our board is useless, at least for me the check boxes are off by one. I tried to vote it is fair but looks like my vote didn't go there..

    Sounds like a false positive for Symantec.

    The site has remained the same for 4 years, possible past history of the IP has nothing to do with this.

    Well, looking at just only one other post would have helped noticing that this one post was not the only one with comments closed. It of course doesn't prove that comments weren't closed years in advance from all posts just to prevent you from commenting this one..

    SOL is one of the few sailing simulation sites out there, there are certainly many times more forums meant for political and other discussions. SOL is run with voluntary admins and resources to monitor spamming is limited.

    As I believe most of our visitors are more interested in virtual sailing than discussions I think it's best to concentrate resources in improving and maintaining the sailing part, the one which is more unique to this site. I base this in that since the commenting was disabled this is so far the only time someone has asked about it.

    The decision was done by me and it is in my view purely technical. The fact that you have started this thread shows that visitors still have a way to express their opinions.

    However, if you volunteer to offer a solution for comments that doesn't danger the stability of the sailing engine, I'm sure it can be considered.

    You might have noticed that comments are closed for all posts, this was decided few years ago after some spammers were able to create enough traffic so that the whole site crashed.
  • Re: Two SOLers with same name issues.
    Board » Technical Support
    The issue has now been fixed and when changing the code I decided to limit some of the features (latest data comparison and predictors) to only SYC members so that more people are encouraged to join SYC.

    This is an interesting idea, unfortunately there is no way now to make the server limit the choices available as kroppyer said.

    One option is to do this in voluntary basis and just disqualify boats that use the same boat twice. It would be bit more work for admins but still doable I guess..
  • Re: Trouble opening Sail Online..
    Board » Technical Support
    This sounds like a DNS problem, can you access both http://sailonline.org and http://www.sailonline.org with your browser?

    Currently the client uses "sailonline.org" address for loading the weather, if the weather download fails it can be that your computer can't resolve that address for some reason.

    I think the simple solution is to participate in the races with less entrants and get the easy points.


  • Re: server returned in error
    Board » Technical Support
    This issue was actually handled by emails outside the forum but I'll update here what it was.

    Problem was a boat name that contained a special character (a with accent) which caused a problem when loading the client.

Elba Rendezvous 2022
Another new race in the SOL calendar. This time a sprint along the route of the classic regatta triangle proposed by Renegade. The theatre of our struggle will be Golfo Di Follonica with its start and finish at Piombino. More buoys were set up in front of Porto Azzurro on Elba Island and next to Punta Ala. One lap of 38 NM will be done with the help of Beneteau Figaro. Carefully plan the direction to start 😊 and "Let the force be with you."

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
