    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.
  • Re: Trifecta Regatta Format

    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..

    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.

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!

Lake Ontario 300 Challenge 2024

Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) welcomes Sailonline to a second race of their annual series, this time as hosts of the virtual LO300.

Once again, as is our wont on Lake Ontario, a fleet of Beneteau First 36.7s is being made available to virtual racers.
