    I'll miss my SOL friend Bimmer, always on the "Friends" list. He tried to teach me routing (and spent a couple of hours trying to get me started), but I never learnt it, definitely not the teacher's fault. So I'm SOTP and will probably remain so.
    Where ever you are now Bimmer, I wish you fair winds!

    I strongly support Zorba's idea! I mentioned it in the chat a week or so ago, and have briefly discussed it with RC.
    But it was 'only' 20 years Ulysses was away. I think it could be a good idea to make it into a series of races, 3 or 4 maybe. And following the (first) map in Zorba's link.
    Read the book! Preferably on hexameter, even if it's hard in the beginning.
    Since we're not rowing, I think we should choose modern and quite fast boats, lest we should spend 20 years at a virtual sea.

    Hi guys!
    Seems really nice! I don't know if it's just me, or something else, but I've had (more than just) bad luck using the predictor. Unexpected bbqs quite often. It seems to be that my DCs had been set too early every time, i.e. I've trusted them too much. Once, certainly, twice, maybe (sloppy reading/setting DCs), but a lot of times? Some traces are lost, but some are still readable.
    Or do I sleep too much at night? Don't hesitate to tell me, if you think so!
    Will be great, once I've learnt how to!

    The Twister will definitely do in Multen. Only at places is the lake shallow; you can never get more than 375 m from nearest shore, but it's 24 m deep here and there! And since we're virtual, it doesn't matter, or is the 'mapper' considering depth?
    Don't hesitate if you've got other requirements or questions!

    This post was moved from the thread Here is how to propose new races.
    Hi!
    I've used your pdf instruction file, but RC didn't get my .kmz to work. But if you do, this is my suggestion. A small boat (but maybe fast) would be the most realistic. We don't have any dinghies!
    Maybe I should change start and finish points, to avoid crossing lines?
    Please let me know if the file is ok, and if I should adjust anything, if you think it's good idea. But the challenge of sailing a small lake would be interesting, I think :)

    Yeppers! Or is it nope? No routers, digital nor human, except for my own brain (which is no good at routing...). Promise! As will be seen from my results ;-) FW to all, routerers and non-routerers!

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.

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.
