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

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2018
Welcome to Stockholm - are you ready to race to St Petersburg? Our 431nm course from Sweden to Russia includes a couple of slight detours past Saaremaa and Hoglandet but if you keep a good lookout and avoid stealthy submarines, you should soon be docking your J130s at the home of the world renowned Hermitage Museum!

Perth-Fremantle ISAF Sprint 2018
To celebrate the running of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth, Australia, SOL organized an overnight offshore race and a Sprint: 65nm in a J-80 sportsboat along the Perth/Freemantle shoreline. We have raced the course several times since then. This year, to hurry things up, we’re going to do it in an Open 60. Proper sprinting!

SWR 17/18 Leg 6 - Hong Kong to Auckland
While others have spent the two-week stay in Hong Kong sailing up and down the Zhujiang River and around Hong Kong Island, we have been able to completely relax and spend the days preparing for Leg 6 from Hong Kong to Auckland.
We will (almost) sail the exactly same way back to where we came from and that means another meeting with the Doldrums, which hopefully this time will be kinder to us. But if that does not happen... no one said this SWR 17/18 would be easy!
