  • SOL World Race leg 3 course
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    May I respectfully submit a request that the course for Leg 3 have the stipulation that boats pass to the SOUTH of Dondra Head (lat:5*55'09.35 N ; Long:80*35'14.49 E ) on Sri Lanka.
    The Palk Strait is limited to depths of 1 metre at the shoals of Adam's Bridge, so it's pretty obvious that VO70 yachts could not be navigated through this area.
    I recall in the last SOL World race this was allowed and boats gained an advantage. In the interest of realism perhaps this could be accomadated?

  • Low tech answer ?
    Board » Technical Support
    Can someone explain how the boats are updated to our computers in the flash program? I find that lately I am frozen out of the game at least once or twice a day, needing refresh to advance to the current position . This is also always happenning at turning points (just like good old beta !!). Causes alot of anxt and stuff. :(

    Are there "ideal settings" we should have to configure the computer to facilitate the live flash ,would like to know.
    I have a suspicion I'm not alone.

    I'm with you Lakis. I think the Volvo race has become a commercial trip.The REAL race will always be down South.At least the Vendee and it's participants have the smarts and common sense to go with the wind.Long live frontier sailing.

    I know its short notice but Newport -Bermuda starts June 20th 2008 1300hrs Est.
    Could race as Rambler sized boats same polars as Transpac? They have I-Boat tracking for added interest(like Sydney-Hobart)
    Maybe also Gulf Stream can be added to really tax us?

  • Possible bug at markrounding
    Board » Technical Support
    During the Venerace when rounding Vanersborg mark I lost "connection with the "server"" at the critical moment.I was in company with a lot of boats and by the time I got back had lost 30 places. At Kristinehamn again just prior to rounding lost connection again?This time regained connection in time,Is the "server" yours and does it get Overloaded??Both times alot of boats in my vicinity ;encountered no connection losses with "server" at any other times!

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
