    SOTP for me!!!
    Enjoy my full night's sleep...

    I pledge to sail SOTP for these races. Not a big commitment as it is how I always sail.
    Hopefully all entrants will sail SOTP so that we won't be able to check our individual dead reckoning against those that use routers and other aids.

    Help!!!
    My boat, brewman, has rounded all marks today in the Lisboa timed race, but only the Vasco de Gama Bridge & Barrerio marks show "Rounded". The boat track clearly goes around Bugio Lighthouse, yet it does not say "Rounded"> All other marks beyond have same issue.
    How can this be?
    What Can be done?
    Thanks, Bruce Flournoy

  • SYC Ranking System
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Was pondering the mechanisms of the SYC overall rankings and noticed that all races are given equal weight, regardless of number of entrants. So, for example, a 150 finish in a popular race with 500 entrants is worth the same as a 150 finish of 151 in a less popular race. This seems somehow inequitable, as one is a top 30% finish while the other could have merely crossed the start line.
    I don't have a solution, or even pretend to know if it needs a solution - Just want to throw it out for discussion...

Susac X2
Welcome to the beautiful calm waters of the Adriatic Sea for the virtual running of the Susac X2 race which is a real-life race organized by the JK Mornar Sailing Club based in Split, Croatia. Although we, unfortunately, aren’t running this magnificent race with the real fleet this year, we hope to make this possible in the coming editions. This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

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.
