Page: 1 2 3 Next



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

Bernd (K3)
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

Our challenge is to look ahead at the long range weather models and select the best weather window for departure promising fair prevailing breezes without encountering major storms in the Gulf of St Lawrence funneling into the Strait of Belle Isle against the south flowing Labrador Current. If we have settled weather in the Strait, we may even be able to anchor briefly to visit L’Anse aux Meadows, the restored viking site that may have been Leif Erikson’s 1001 AD Markland settlement.

CCA Delivery Cruise 1 2021 - Sandwich MA to Halifax NS

The Cruising Club of America invites you to join them on a (virtual) delivery cruise starting from Sandwich, Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod in the USA to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, some 354nm away. Once we clear the tip of Cape Cod at Race Point our rhumb line course will be 70 deg T for 225nm across the Gulf of Maine to Cape Sable NS, so the best delivery departure window for sparing the crew and gear pounding into a northeast winter gale across Browns Bank will likely be following a frontal passage with strong favorable westerly winds. You may choose one of two boats, both tailored for cruising and new to Sailonline's boathouse, so flip a coin, study their Particulars sheets and make ready! You may start at any time after 1900utc on 8 February 2021 and you must arrive in Halifax by 4 March at 2300utc.

Haifa to Sao Vicente - 2021 ESRW - Leg 1
Welcome to bonknhoot’s alternative round the world race, there where it is wide, in six legs, following the setting sun – the ESRW Equatorial Sailonline Round the World Race; equatorial to differentiate it from more traditional antarctical circumnavigations. Expect then to cross the equator frequently, although on this 3500nm first leg from Haifa to the Cape Verdes in Ker 40s you should probably stay north of it. Being a proper ocean race, there are no intermediate waypoints, but please try to leave Tangiers to port anyway.
