Board » Technical Discussion » Changes to sailonline.org

With new year there have been some changes to sailonline.org.

Most of the changes are not visible (yet) as they are in the database itself with ability now to track SYC membership per boat as opposed to previously only per user. This was actually quite big change as it involved handling the membership payments, boat registration, ranking, expiration reminders etc. If you have any issues or strange behaviour with them, please contact the admins.

The first visible change is that if you are a SYC member, the expiration date of your membership is now shown on the website, below the SYC membership flag.

Races are now included in the rankings only after the first boat has finished (fleet races) or after the race has been closed (timed races).

The "utility boats", Practice marks, sol and guest boats are now not included in the rankings and they are not counted to the amount of boats when counting DNC or DNS scores. When practice racing is active you can see that they all have ranking 9999.

Previously there was a small "feature" that when a boat started a race with a command during towback time, it was not marked correctly as started before the first command was issued after the race start (or the sailing engine decided to add a trace mark for that boat). This is why sometimes you would get the first turn after start free of performance hit but it is now fixed . All boats are marked as started the moment they start moving.
"Previously there was a small "feature" that when a boat started a race with a command during towback time...
...This is why sometimes you would get the first turn after start free of performance hit but it is now fixed."

Ahh, so this was not an undocumented feature, but a bug;)
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I'm right.
The archived race leaderboards have now changed so that there is an additional field "LOG" which is total of miles the boat has sailed in that race.

In fleet races LOG replaces "DBL" which doesn't mean much in old races anyway. In timed races LOG replaces "DTG" as only finished runs are timed.
Since yesterday the weather data updates to the client have been compressed and their size is reduced to roughly 40% of what they were before.
There now is a summary page for all races ever in SOL for SYC members.

It can be found via link "Summary of all results by.." in series ranking detail page (i.e. boats individual results for a series).

For example, here is summary for http://sailonline.org/series/all/RainbowChaser/
Excellent!

Many big thanks from my side to hmm, these latest improvements are great!
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I'm right.
The summary page has been updated a bit, now including first ever race (finish) etc.

Unfortunately the total miles is probably bit off, basically it doesn't count the miles correctly when you cross IDL but adds miles for extra circumnavigation (on that latitude) for each crossing.

I will see if that can be fixed somehow, it would be an interesting number.

The reason for the problem is essentially same that I have explained here:

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. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
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!
