When you come to submit a proposal for a race, please try and include a recommendation for a boat. If you are uncertain then that's OK too as we can always pick the brains of the SOL community to find the most appropriate boat-type for the race in question!

I could not quite read the attached and converted to pdf which a bit more legible, at least for my eyes:)

Hi ...
I noticed that there are no X-Yacht represented on the list... That is really a shame. :-o

I suggest X-55 as a new entry to the list.
It's very fast ... is pointing high into the wind on the beat, and has very satisfying performance in all weather conditions. B-)
Hi Niels,
there is a X-332 in the polars used before 2009-12-16 at http://team-yacht-treff.de/polars/index.html

Hi Bernd

Your are quite right :-) i missed that one.. :-o
Still I think that an X55 would be a good supplement to the current list
I would take one too :)
Hi All... I am taking a stab at designing a few races and had a couple of questions:
1) I rarely see more than one boat type offered per race. Can there be more than one choice for a race?

2)Is there a way to see the polars for all the boats already in the SOL db?

3)A lot (most?,all?) of the SOL races appear to mimic IRL competitions. Is it acceptable to make a race that is a SOL exclusive? Maybe the Real World will follow!!

4)Finally, where do I send the races for review? I am happy to do them over after professional critique.

I am NOT a computer genius so I am learning a lot as I try to create some fun competitions. Best part about this activity is that I can now honestly tell people I sail a "SOLing".
I will try to answer your questions:

1) Once a year Jakob organizes a "choose-right-boat" (IMSYC)race. Basically his students design each a different boat for that particular race.
With exception of that race all other races are sailed on the same boat.

2)Go to Brainaid site at http://team-yacht-treff.de/polars/index.html

3)No need to mimic RL races. In fact, part of what makes SOL fun is to explore the world in ways not always possible in real life.

4)I would post your race here on this thread.

Hope this helps.
I am sure others will jump in with more answers.

Thanks Antonio,
That helps. I am having some fun learning the Google Earth app and coming up with some fun, short coastal races. I am also on a quest to find the polars for a couple of my favourite boats and see if we could include them in the db. In the meantime, will stick with the existing platforms.

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2024

Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April which we always like to celebrate with a race through the Stockholm Archipelago from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to his mooring at Baggensfjärden. Traditionally also, like other celebrations this time of year, this feast has been “moveable”, so on this occasion we will be racing on a Wednesday in one of our latest high-performance 40-footers, the Carkeek 40. Please join us then for this always tricky 30nm race. Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.
