Hello All,

Here is the design for the 2014 Lake Winnebago Race, which is designed to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Neenah Nodaway Yacht Club. The race will start at the entrance to Neenah harbor, and will circuit the lake, returning to finish at Neenah.

Please join NNYC club members who will be new to SOL, along with long time SOLers Bgosh, Amateur Knight and Zowee as we complete this annual race on their home waters, and help to celebrate this landmark event!

hi zowee - I have had a quick look at the kmz (was going to set the race up) but you haven't included any waypoints.

I can assume waypoints at the positions where your course changes direction but... they would need names.

We can do this in a couple of ways.

1. You revise your kmz - set up waypoints where you want them and give them local names and re-upload the kmz.

2. You look at your kmz, decide on the waypoints (decimal coords and local names) and list them here.


Then we can set up the race for you to preview :-)

Hello Joanne,

I somehow didn't save correctly, and the waypoints, start and finish lines were lost. I have now saved it correctly, and attached the updated course map.

This course is different than prior Lake Winnebago races. The start/Finish is Neenah, where NNYC is located. Also I have included a description of the NNYC 150th anniversary and a link to the NNYC archive in the route description. It would be really nice to have this description used on the SOL Races area so that people can see the link and get the full experience of the event.

Thanks!

Derek/Zowee

Having set up the wx with nam_awip I was reminded that Sailonline will no longer have two different sets of wx update times.. I then used global_gfs BUT forgot to make the coords W so... apologies but FINALLY here is the preview of the race!!

Log in as the sol boat please (Username and Password = sol) and then click here

Please let me know if anything needs to be tweaked!!

:-D
As a casual observer Lake Winnebago never looked better. The course would appear to be even more challenging than previous editions while covering the entire expanse of this famed venue.

Hi A2R,

Thanks for the feedback :) We added some waypoints that mark the two most prominent shallows on the lake, so the course is very true to how one would navigate the lake.

Indeed, Lake Winnebago was regarded as one of the oldest and most famous inland lake venues in the US. We at the NNYC are thrilled to sponsor this race in honor of our sesquicentenial (150th) anniversary. See you on the lake :)

The course works just fine As Is, but in the spirit of giving notes, there is either a switched up labeling or waypoint config between Neenah N & S.

If N and S mean North and South then South is North of North. I know I'm in the southern hemisphere but I'm sure the rule still applies up there.
Also, zowee's original intent was for a clockwise course. By going anti-clockwise we now have the rhumb line crossing the finish line shortly after the start. I assume we will not all come to an abrupt halt as the server will have us as not passing the waypoints.

Hi Tyger - thanks!! N and S do now mean N and S ... and I've moved the finish line so that we don't instantly cross it at the start.

The server would ignore our presence at the finish so early on as we would need to have recorded roundings at the other marks before, but it looked bad so... deffo now an improvement.

Derek and his Board are happy with the course direction so I won't tinker with it now!

:-)
Looks good RC. Sliding the weather forward to the start, it looks like a great windward/leeward course SSW at a bit over 6 knots. Should take 10-15hrs depending what comes in after the 7 day forecast.
Can we make this the permanent SOL course for future Lake Winnebago races?

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world.

Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300

Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
