A little needed diversion maybe. This is a project I've been working on for a little while - the intention was to produce a set of consistent tiles that we could use on a "fleet" page for the website, but also for race announcements and in the client. The boats are all individual files matching our polars, and are scaleable vector graphics - easy to manipulate.

I started dropping them on a "poster" page just to keep track a bit, and because I liked the way it was starting to turn out. Neat to see the vastly different sizes. When I got bored of drawing 40 'ers I added a few easter eggs...

It's not 100% complete, and it'll be a while before it moves much beyond what's presented here, but I thought you guys might have fun...

I've made up an "entry form" over at 76Trombones.wordpress.com and can host a larger file there. I invite anyone interested to test their sail ID and google-fu. I figure the max score is currently about 111.

Once it's finalised I'll publish the vector-art version. Maybe we can have some posters made up?

Oh wow 76T that is wonderful - I have been so wanting to make a boat name + polar + image + list of races for so long.

I try and keep up to date a note of all boats used in races (in a spreadsheet), and polars are nearly all uploaded as image files anyway now they are included in race descriptions, so the only thing missing has been an image (with scale maybe)of what each boat looks like. I had been thinking of trying to find copyright-free images from the internet, but your diagrammatic images would be perfect!!!

At the moment the SOL Boathouse is a bit barebones!!

Here's an example tile - we should be able to handle line thicknesses, scale, etc in code, so one file for each boat can serve many uses.

Flo :)))

A very fine work 76T

Lol... I should have at least changed the filename huh? Bernd leads by (with?) 1 point!
Doesn't count.. you gave us Twister :-D
I didn't remembered the boat type and I didn't saw the file name. But I know Flo from many pics and it's so unusual at SOL.
I will try to get the other 99 points soon…

Bernd (K3)
I've done it. To be correct: I tried it. In the 4th row I lost the connection to the pics. There were only 4 or 5 columns listed in the test but there're more boats.
It would be easier when there will be number/letter at each boat.

I want the picture in a BIG version :)
Yeah, the format of the questionnaire is pretty bad. This is trying to use Google Docs - the only benefit is that it's self-scoring/databasing. (which is actually pretty neat)

6 Rows - defined by the waterlines:
13 (A-M)
4 (A-D)
4 (A-D)
8 (A-H)
11 (A-K)
11 (A-K)

Bigger image from the blog

Maybe I'll just add a fillable form to the pdf... hmm

(K3 still winning)
the waterlines! ok, forget my results, next try tomorrow. And thanks for the big picture.
We need a H-boat race in the future…

ciao

Current Races:

SWR 17/18 Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague
Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018
Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?

Golden Globe Race 2018 - Falmouth to Les Sables-d'Olonne
Welcome to Sailonline’s virtual Golden Globe Race 2018 and the SITraN prologue to Les Sables d’Olonne, starting immediately after the IRL competitors’ Parade of Sail in Falmouth Harbour celebrating the 50th anniversary of the departure of the original Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, who will compete in production yachts of the size and type used in 1968 and will only use materials and equipment that was available to them then, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race this prologue and the race proper (in two legs) by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, relying solely on the SOL predictor line and dead reckoning for navigation.
