    So sad to hear a good man set sails for his final voyage, heading for the sea with no shores.
    Bimmer, have a calm waters and starry skies on your way to eternity.

    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Zorba, thanks for proposal and thanks for made it virtual.
    IRL, no one really wants "bora experience" :-)

    Yes, there are stronger winds and much higher seas in the world, but what's specific here is nearly 2000 m high mountain range separating warm Mediterranean coast line from much colder inland.
    Thus, especially in winter, when Genoa Low has passed eastward and cold Arctic air comes behind, it rushes down hillsides with gale force.
    But the most dangerous is 'reful', a wind blast that falls from all the way above, hits surface and spreads in any direction from NW to SE, without any warning or sign. In 150-160 km/h NE 'bura', such blast can easily reach over 200 km/h. On sea, that rip off sails, break mast or capsize boat.
    So, the only reasonable action IRL, when hurricane 'bura' is forecasted, is to find a good shelter along SW coast of some island, double and secure your moorings, go down to the galley and open a bottle of some excelent Dalmatian red wine, and for the next 24-48 hours listen the wind screaming through shrouds.
    Virtually, this should be fun, with just one more thing...

    I'm strongly suggesting to move finish line from Ploče (not so exciting port town) to the other side of Pelješac peninsula and a bit further, in front of Dubrovnik city walls.
    That way we got a race that also connects two jewels of the Adriatic!

    We do have DN iceboat in SOL boathouse, don't we? ;-)

  • Re: Discarding ziggy points or… not.
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Championships
    As an example of proposed method, comparison on results of Refeno Rally Race, with graphical presentation.

    Note two big, short-time, jumps and the influence of not-in-Series racers on SPTS, vs linear result distribution with normalized RT.

    (non-Series PTS = not SYCM or has less than 4 races finished, thus not in position for overall 40' Seies high Ranking)

    FW all!

    Cheers João & Huib!

    Ment to write earler, unfortunately no time, but maybe even better now, with current 40'Series situation.
    Before the last race, and without discarding the worst points, SimeMali (Class40) has a safe margin of 37 places behind Kipper1258 (Class40) and 38 behind psail (SOTO). With discarding, that margin is only 3 and 8, respectively. (btw. just posted race#5 xls at the usual place). Thus seems reasonably me vote for no discarding. But...

    We all know that over a 6 month period there's a GREAT probability to have at least one race ruined because of work/health/family/other reasons. João, I entirely support your goals: 'Increase the competitive edge by approximating the different levels of SOL sailing expertise' and 'bring & keep more SOLers inside', and think discarding 1 bad race does exactly that: no one is eliminated by just one misfortune.

    You bouth have right on influence of number of events and number of competitors, and I'm afraid we have here the worst case scenario: small number of races and large number of SOLers, so every point has great specific weight.

    Because of that I'm thinking about a new way of scoring in 40 Series, and realy be glad to have your opinion.

    My basic idea is a sum of normalized race times. In each race, winner's time should be considered as 1.000000, and all other race times calculated relatively to that (so we have +0.000012 for each second delay in 24h race, but +0.000006 per second in 48h race).

    Example attached is for a few boats in Refeno Rally. As you can see, boat with 0.22% (not a mistake, it's 0.0022) slower time get +28 PTS, then for further 10% 17 PTS more, and further 0.3% 6 PTS more. That distribution doesn't seems fair.

    With normalized race times, all races are equally weighted, the worst result can be discarded, and there's no cumulative delay for slower boats in longer races. This way also minimize influence of occasional, not in-Series racers on overall Series ranking.
    (This model maybe can be applicable on TR Series too)

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on this idea (and from other SOLers, oc :) ), also considerations how to handle DNF and DNS/DNC boats.

    I'll try to do a simulation of that method on current 40' Series results, ASAP (but welcome any volunteer :))

    Be well, stay well, FW!

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
