  • Re: sailing in meta virtual winds in christmas to christmas
    Board » General Discussion
    As explained in the in-race message, there is a problem that occurs when boats cross the antimeridien (date line) and hit the E border of a race... they are teleported across to the W border.

    THUS

    our workaround for those who follow racing directions is to provide a margin within which we can spot errant boats before they reach the teleport point and, as we say in the inrace message, we'll halt those boats.

    The idea is to allow for racers who stop steering but never expect to find themselves entirely in the wrong place (or, in this race, super-close to the finish!).

    Sol is now steering SW :-)

New Hebrides Slalom 2019
In years gone by, we have reflected in these notes on the temptation to hang out longer on any one of the exotic islands in the Coral Sea that this race will take you past, but failed to mention that you may also experience an urge to get away sharply from the carved-out industrial backdrop of New Caledonia’s opencast nickel mines. We’re providing you with the boat for it, and if there’s any wind at all, you’ll be across the Loyaute Basin in no time, after which however you may well find your crew wanting to dawdle as they flag in the ever-swirling hi-res winds over the islands of the Vanuatu archipelago. Only 578nm; enjoy!

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!!
