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

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
