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

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
