Inco - what information do you still need for the Twisted race??
If you are referring to the link in Incognito's first post in this thread to the Google Earth Race Proposals PDF, you can find that file here:


I saved a copy there when someone else was having trouble opening it as well.


When I use that link, I just get "The file link that you requested is not valid."

I'm trying to propose a race that starts Friday 18th. Can anyone help??

Although I have no Official capacity the Race Committee's file for Scheduled Races in June does Include the Newport - Bermuda event slotted for June 18th. (650 nm - VOR70)

"Excellent" [said in a Montgomery Burns stylee].

Hi Baggus,

Fixed it.

Has anyone suggested following:
- Gotland runt
- Espoo-Suursaari race

Also some legendary (old one) would be nice...
Juhani - yeps SOL does race both these courses, in fact the Gotland is scheduled for next week!

SOL will probably be racing the Suursaari in August or September (at least SOL boats won't be damaged by strong winds as the IRL ones were this year!!).
you require us to sign up for that file sharing program/website just to submit a race proposal?
Fortunately it doesn't work anyway.
I get the same error messages others get.
Good thought though, for file sharing.
What now?
St. Lucie - Jupiter Ocean Racing Association (SJORA)
You don't need to join the yahoogroup nor any other Website for proposing races.

After Designing a race in Google Earth, you'll need to save it as a File to your Disk.
Then write a Posting in this Thread, as you have done for Florida Bahamas. Below your typing Window, you'll find a few Buttons. Click on the top most, choose your File and click "open" in the openend Window. You'll see your choosen Filename behind the Button. If you then Post your Topic, the File will be attached to it.

You don't need to open this Attachment. It wasn't really ment to be uploaded, but i couldn't avoid uploading it after choosing it before posting and i couldn't remove it afterwards, so be Carefull, what File to choose. ;-)
