    I strongly support Zorba's idea! I mentioned it in the chat a week or so ago, and have briefly discussed it with RC.
    But it was 'only' 20 years Ulysses was away. I think it could be a good idea to make it into a series of races, 3 or 4 maybe. And following the (first) map in Zorba's link.
    Read the book! Preferably on hexameter, even if it's hard in the beginning.
    Since we're not rowing, I think we should choose modern and quite fast boats, lest we should spend 20 years at a virtual sea.

    Hi guys!
    Seems really nice! I don't know if it's just me, or something else, but I've had (more than just) bad luck using the predictor. Unexpected bbqs quite often. It seems to be that my DCs had been set too early every time, i.e. I've trusted them too much. Once, certainly, twice, maybe (sloppy reading/setting DCs), but a lot of times? Some traces are lost, but some are still readable.
    Or do I sleep too much at night? Don't hesitate to tell me, if you think so!
    Will be great, once I've learnt how to!

    The Twister will definitely do in Multen. Only at places is the lake shallow; you can never get more than 375 m from nearest shore, but it's 24 m deep here and there! And since we're virtual, it doesn't matter, or is the 'mapper' considering depth?
    Don't hesitate if you've got other requirements or questions!

    This post was moved from the thread Here is how to propose new races.
    Hi!
    I've used your pdf instruction file, but RC didn't get my .kmz to work. But if you do, this is my suggestion. A small boat (but maybe fast) would be the most realistic. We don't have any dinghies!
    Maybe I should change start and finish points, to avoid crossing lines?
    Please let me know if the file is ok, and if I should adjust anything, if you think it's good idea. But the challenge of sailing a small lake would be interesting, I think :)

    Yeppers! Or is it nope? No routers, digital nor human, except for my own brain (which is no good at routing...). Promise! As will be seen from my results ;-) FW to all, routerers and non-routerers!

    Not a great problem - I've never used any router for SOLing (even if the kind man Bimmer tried to teach me how to). I'll do my best, but will sleep all night (or try to - too often the case, when wakening up in the night). FW all non router sailors, and the rest of you who can't resist to use it! :-)

Current Races:

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
