    Well said - Win. My feeling exactly ...I'm still at a loss for words for this, the parting of a friend on SOL..

    This is such sad news of AGage's passing. He will be greatly missed...

    Joan and I are leaving in 12 days to go cruising for 6-8 months. Internet will be spotty and probably not good for racing. I will check-in when able to advise on how much RUM is left on board. Its been a fun two years of SOL racing. Hope to pick it back up the summer of 2011. Until then stay off that green stuff it ruins your ranking..

    Problem I'm having with this DNS scoring is, sometimes I'm not in a position to race but would like to join in the chat and watch the race. There needs to be a way to do this without being penalized.

    So Jakob, If I register for a 1000km race and don't start those miles are not added to my total miles and doesn't affect my ranking?

    Guys, I thought you said if we register and don't start the race DNS, this would not go against our overall scores. Looking at the SYC ranking for me, several races where counted even though I didn't start. Sometimes I join a race to chat since I don't have time to make the race.

    Guys, under the latest software. While setting a TWA of -170deg the CC is showing 508 deg. Might have left out the -360 if greater than 360... Like what I'm seeing..

    Jim

    Edit: BTW, I see this when putting in the TWA into the field, not when using the direction tool..

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.
