    To the Sailonline team,

    Great addition with the extended predicter tool. Thank You to all.
    When you use many DC's, would it be possible when you place your computer mouse to highlight one DC, that a dot appears on your predicted course so you can locate the DC on the map?

    Thank you guys.

    Team, the info (map of the race) of the A3 2020 leg 3 loaded on the web page is not correct. It should be changed.
    Thank you for your dedication.

    Morning team and again well done.
    A suggestion for the html client:
    Could we have a toggle button on the screen that removes all tracks except the official tracks. In some instances (i.e multiple tours, or passing by or around the same locations) there are too many tracks on the screen and it gets confusing when playing on a small media.

    Just a suggestion.

    Bon vent

    Guys, so far it works well. Thank you for your time and patience.

    As an improvement, could it be possible when you set a DC, that the predictors (both) starting at DC point are shown on the map?

    Regards from Altair

    To whom it may concern,

    Had to renew my membership at the last minute today on 31/01/2020 and discovered afterward that I am not listed as SYC member anymore. Will I regain the membership? Will my sailing history be restored.

    Nice job and Thank you.
    Few points before reading all the inputs on the new client and maybe you already responded but I can't find it in the chat.
    1- Chats are not saved on the computer. So we loose earlier inputs.
    2- Cannot scroll down the list of boats in the ranking tab.
    3- With regards to knobs allowing to change the map display, if we had knobs that could allow us to toggle between wind arrows to wind TWA/TWS from the map screen without having to go to settings each time.

    Note that all points above are valid from the computer or the tablet I use.

    Great job you guys are doing.

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024

Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
