    I think Simemali has made some good points. :)

    Thanks Richard.
  • Start times
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee
    Hi, I am seeking your thoughts on start times. Whilst I understand that some start times are set by a buddy-up, and perhaps logistically with the Timed Races, I am wondering why some other races start some 30 minutes before a WX update (eg The Valetta race).

    Given that we have SOLers spread across many many time zones, this practice almost certainly ensures quite a few SOLers need to not only get up at two or three in the morning, but further, have to stay awake for another half an hour and re-do all their DCs to cope with the new WX.

    If however the race started 30 minutes after the WX, the problem would disappear. Maybe there is some other reason for races to start 30 minutes before a WX and I have missed it.

    cheers

    Many thanks matai, we very much appreciate your contribution to SOL and also for dealing with ongoing isuues. I wonder of you remember me..I helped you with an English version of the QtVlm manual a few years ago, before you had any real connection to SOL. It's been quite a journey! :)

    I routed and saved the routing. But after that, it was still working. Then I moved the QT window below other windows I was using, mainly Chrome browser windows.

    When the time came to do the next routing, I clicked on the QT window to bring it to the top, and the drop tabs weren't working.

    The qt window would have been beneath other windows for around six hours (time between WXs) though occasionally I return and check progress during that 6 hour period. Somewhere in that time frame, it suddenly stops working properly.

    Sorry this is so elusive matai. The drop down menus for grib, routings and routes are the ones which cease to drop down. Left clicking on then lights them up purple okay, but no drop down menu appears. Right clicking on them still works giving a drop down menu. Everything else in QT appears to keep functioning..nmea instruments, tracking, etc etc. I did try resizing the window last time it happened but it didn't help. cheers.

    Sorry to report, the beta is exhibiting the same behaviour for me as did the previous issues.

    So far so good but I have been moving locations and needing to reboot QT quite a few times. I'm now back at home and will keep testing the beta..

Elbetico's Fun Run TIMED Race 2017
This ever popular annual 20nm TIMEDRUN returns to our calendar slightly later in the year than usual. This year, our craft of choice is the SOTO30. Like last year’s Class40, the SOTO30 is a close-winded boat and has the additional upwind feature of a constant optimum TWA when the wind goes above Force 4. Chances are these aspects will stand to you, weaving your way up the mud flats of the upper reaches of the Huelva delta.
