  • Re: API
    Board » Technical Discussion
    There is an API, but it is not publicly documented (actually, it is not documented at all). Many people (including myself) have used this to create third party tools. There is an android client that uses this API. I believe only the process of registering in a race was a problem, otherwise a complete client can be built.

    Significant work has been done with relation to a non-flash client (HTLM5). If you are interested in working on such a client (as sol volunteer or as a private project) then please do get in touch (via the admin@ e-mail address, or contact me directly via huib@). We would love to get you started. Also for other 3rd party tools I offer my help in working with the API. I always do this with one condition: the tool should be publicly available to everyone for free. I have helped Kipper for example when he was getting started with his DC checker and/or auto grib downloader tool(s).

    I started developing SPINNACER exactly with this in mind: I needed a way to accurately determine SOG at a given windspeed and angle and use this in calculations.

    SPINNACER offers both a graphical as a numerical way to do this. It may be a bit cumbersome at the start, but it sounds like this is the tool you're looking for.

    I will once again put up the SOTP flag in flagpole for everyone who had _SOTP added to their name by RC. If you're not familiar with the concept of flagpole: it gives a number of unofficial rankings per race, for example a ranking with only people who declared to sail SOTP. In order to declare this using flagpole, you hoist a flag. You can hoist multiple flags in order to appear in multiple rankings (I believe there's even a 60+ flag for "senior citizens").

    The continuous scale of SOTP'ing

    The SOTP flag is traditionally for those who do not use routing software. Other tools are allowed, like WxInspector.

    From what I understand, in this particular race if you declare to sail SOTP via this thread, you declare note to use any external tools, so no WxInspector or brainaid DC editor. This is a little bit more strict that what the SOTP flag has been used for in the past, but if you declared to sail SOTP in this thread, you are definitely qualified to fly the SOTP flag on flagpole.

    I have now also added the RETRO flag. If you hoist this flag you declare not to use any modern help. You only use the official sailonline clients and the options within, but nothing else. You won't even use spreadsheets or calculators. I will not hoist this flag on behalf of you when you declared you are sailing SOTP in this thread, but feel free to hoist the flag yourself over on sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/ if you are the die-hard SOTP'er.

    ______________
    While you're logged in at flagpole, you can also hoist a couple of other flags. I personally like the sleepy pennant, which you can hoist in order to be ranked together with other people who don't get up in the middle of the night for a wx update.

    Flagpole news: I have set the SOTP flag for everyone who had _SOTP added to their boatname by RainbowChaser after posting in this thread. You can manually hoist and lower flags for your boat. Have a look at the "RETRO" flag for the die hard SOTP'ers.

    Anyway, now you can find an (unofficial) SOTP ranking here: http://sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/index.php?view=ranking&raceid=1135&flagid=5

    This may be a nice opportunity to use flagpole again:
    http://sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/

    Log in using you sol credentials and select the GGR race. You can now hoist the SOTP flag. Now when people look at the ranking on flagpole, they can see your flag. It is also possible to filter the ranking on flags so that you can create a ranking with only the boats flying a SOTP-flag.

    In addition to the SOTP-flag you can also hoist the (new) RETRO-flag. The SOTP flag is meant for people who do not use a router (but WxInspector, spreadsheets and other non-routing tools are allowed). With the RETRO flag you declare not to use a computer at all (apart from for the purpose of steering your boat of course).

    I might take the liberty to hoist the SOTP flag on flagpole for everyone who declared to sail SOTP in this thread.

    An in-race message was placed on 2018-04-07 at 05:10:30 UTC to announce that the race would be closed on Thursday, 12 April at 23:00 UTC.

    The race closed on 2018-04-12 at 23:00:01 UTC.

    I'm sorry you were unable to finish your race. We try to give everyone a chance to finish before closing the race, but there are always some people unable to make the finish in time, often because they started at a later date. We cannot keep all races open unnecessarily long, but we can often postpone a race close be a day, maybe two when asked. Next time when you see the message announcing the date and time the race will close, and you think you won't make the finish, you can send us an e-mail (admin@ ... ) asking for an extension.

    Unfortunately we cannot re-open races, so yes, the race is gone with the wind, except for the rankings and the good memories :)

    As far as I understand, they will put "not secure" in the address bar, nothing that will interfere normal browsing.
  • Re: Polars
    Board » Technical Discussion
    It is a collection that grows over the years. There are multiple ways we create polars. Sometimes there is enough data online to create reasonable polars, sometimes we have contact with boatowners, sometimes we can get enough data from tracking IRL boats while racing. Usually it's a combination of everything.
  • Re: HOW TO CHANGE THE NAME OF MY SHIP?
    Board » Technical Support
    You can't change your boat name. We can do it for you, send us an e-mail (on the admin@sailonline address) with the new boatname you want.

Tour de Belle Ile 2018
As you might guess, ‘La Belle Ile en Mer’ to give the island its full name, unlike the Ile de France which lies in the Seine, lies in the sea, in fact in the sea off the Bay of Quiberon on Britany’s south coast, home of France’s ECOLE NATIONALE DE VOILE ET DES SPORTS NAUTIQUES, where many a French champion sailor has learnt his craft. An appropriate venue then for SOLers to test their wind-hounding skills in a 45nm TIMED tour out from the mainland, around the island and home, this year in sporty Beneteau Figaro’s. A popular place though, so mind the water scooters, speedboats and other assorted recreational craft!

DO NOT START TOO EARLY
If you raced Leg 1 then you MUST wait 90 minutes before starting this leg. 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.

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!!
