    Well, this race was an interesting one. During and after racing we discussed of what should be the correct course.

    In fact, it was not "around the cans" but inside the cans racing. After thinking again about this course the fastest route would have been a short upwind untill crossing the line between M2 and M4 and, after a turn from close hauled stb to reaching stb, thus leaving M3 to stb, a short downwind to cross the finishline.
    The most eastern island did not even had to be rounded.
    I am not sure what any racecommittee would do here, this sure would raise questions in real sailing too.

    Cheers, Arthur.

    Maybe you have to replace the . with a , in my csv file, depending on language/international settings in Excel.

    I converted the Steinlager polar into a csv file, thanks to Svein for emailing me the raw data.

    Attached the csv file.

    Please let me know if problems occur.

    GW, Arthur

    This is exactly what I wanted; a nice discussion about the races we sail.
    I did announce that I wasn't going to start in this race, but, as always, my addiction won and I started my boat anyway :-)

    Well, being an F18 sailor, I can not imagine how you guys managed to go around the rocks at 20 kts boatspeed, keep the daggerboards in one piece, do 415 miles without sleep and be able to finish with a smile.

    Well done to all the finishers (I quit after 3 hours) and the course designers.

    I like the suggestion to do this kind of races in several legs, somewhat more in line with reality.

    Cheers!

    Oh, btw, on my pic I'm doing 30 kts, that's just before losing control :-)

    In my (usually humble) opinion, these kind of races are not suited for SOL, or the other way around.
    SOL is still a navigational simulator.
    Rounding sharp corners at boatspeeds over 20 kts in small waters is simply undoable in SOL.

    However, I always enjoy the longer races. Even more if we can sail virtually against IRL fleets.

    Keep up the good work, SOL is still the best sailing game in terms of strategic sailing.

    Cheers and GW,
    Arthur. (A dedicated F18-sailor :-) )

    Hello,

    Somewhere, somehow, I heared that in some race in I think NZ/Aus there is a trophy for the boat that finishes just 1 place before last?

    Anyone?

    Cheers!

  • Re: Bug: DC on predictor.
    Board » Technical Support
    I (also) expected the orange dot to stay on place. Eg: when I set a DC to turn around a corner, the dot remains at that place on the predictor-line(s) and I could tweak the time to get a perfect rounding. I found out it just moves along with the predictorline.

    Now that I know, it's ok :-)

    Cheers, Arthur

    Where to find info on Leg4? I tried these links form the official site, but get only empty pages. No SI or maps that say to go North of Filippines. Not that I care, but I wondered where the course-change-info was coming from?

Elba Rendezvous 2022
Another new race in the SOL calendar. This time a sprint along the route of the classic regatta triangle proposed by Renegade. The theatre of our struggle will be Golfo Di Follonica with its start and finish at Piombino. More buoys were set up in front of Porto Azzurro on Elba Island and next to Punta Ala. One lap of 38 NM will be done with the help of Beneteau Figaro. Carefully plan the direction to start 😊 and "Let the force be with you."

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

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.
