    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?

It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!
