    The sad news have spread amongst the members of the SOL Italian Team. They have expressed the desire that I add their grief to mine here.

    So …..On behalf of all those who fly the Italian flag high on the mast of the SOL pinky boats …. A BIG HUG to Joao …..

    You have always expressed friendship and respect for us …….it is now our time to pay total respect to you ….Thank you Joao !! …..

    The “Padrão dos Descobrimentos” will steer with you on every sea and ocean !

    Italians pay respect to Portuguese navigators (33 + 1)

    Ciao

  • Re: First SOL meetup in north Europe
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    was not a surprise that the most answer I got were "no boat?, no party!"
    Accidentally the 2 options that I have to grab a boat has sinked in the last weeks....
    So I have to postpone this on a next future.
    Could be that I will go there anyhow as there is holiday in Germany.

    However the plan B is the following:
    I will attend to the presentation of SOL during the buddyup with the Silverrudder, same location, end of September.
    The local SOL crew is already up and running for that.
    So stay tuned, there WILL BE a SOL party in DK this year! ;)
    Good wind

    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    UPDATE!
    Just recognized the vote are anonimous :o!
    Please left a short comment saying who will join( I am guessing the 4 eheh) and WHERE you would like to make next! (or contact me if you want to stay anonimous of course)

    Dear friends,
    I am glad to invite you to the first SOL meetup in north Europe!
    the choosen location is in DK as it is easier to link to the event to the biggest regatta around the island of Fyn
    http://palbyfyncup.dk/
    The circuit is well known to all the Soler as we raced few times around that island.
    The location is also easily to reach with plane, car, train, boat.

    To accomodate the higher number of partecipants there are 3 basic options:

    1) Only dinner (on 26th or 27th May)
    2) Dinner + Racing weekend with Soler´s boat.
    3) Dinner + Racing weekend with a charter boat.

    Option 1) is open to all the SOLers that want to have a great evening

    Option 2) is open to all the SOLers that will join with her/his boat and would like to enter IRL race and take some SOLer on board.(cruise in company style). You will get a first class crew of experienced SOLer and expenses cover for the race entrance. ( to be shared between crew on board)

    Option 3) is open to all the SOLer that do not have a boat but would consider to charter a boat (40ft class) for the weekend.
    All expenses will be shared between friends on board.

    To give your comment, ask question(s), submit your NOT binding feedback on which option you would like to follow please contact me.
    As for privacy reason I do not have access to the SOL maildatabase please share this invitation to all your friends.
    Any question, anytime to me.
    Best regards and goodwind waiting your reply.
    Gilberto aka Gilles

  • Re: Why is the bent line Better - sometimes.
    Board » General Discussion
    Hi Rod,
    I guess that is happening during wind rotation,following the rotation whit a bend, or big wind gradient where you sacrify the angle for a better wind.
    As this is really depending from the particular situation, ask in chat during the race.
    A lot of people will help you for the analysis.

    A great spot to exercise are also the PR, Practice Race. there you can experiment with other people and get the "tricks"
    Short race before the official race go on.
    have a look for Rainbow Chaser in the chat.

    Good wind
    Gilles

hmm's Delivery 2019
When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Aden to Goa 2019
Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
