Hi RC,

Calendar is looking very good.
I just checked the start time for the Kapiti-Chetwodes race. As it stands the race will start 8 am Saturday morning NZ time. Most kiwis will be sailing on Saturday's. Could we move the start time too the 2nd October 0600 please. This will mean a 7pm start Saturday for us Kiwi's. By then most will be home, exhausted and drunk from our day's sailing :)

Cheers NZL_undercover
Tazu - to have a link to the SOL calendar on the homepage is a nice idea. Perhaps lets wait a little while until we are satisfied that the calendar format is working and then we can ask the SOLgods if a link on the homepage is doable. It will be essential to keep the calendar always up to date - nothing is more irritating than visiting a website that claims to have a calendar only to find it is months or sometimes years out of date!! So if there is a dynamic link on the homepage, the target will always have to be the most current!

In the meantime, if folks find it hard to get to the Races Forum they can always click on the Homepage Races Tab/race archive and see the races that are already set up :-)
NZL_undercover - done!

See attached!

I have also added a bright green (for GO!) border to each cell that contains a start date... that seems to highlight the starts pretty well.

What do you all think??
Nice work RC thank you :)
A little tweaked and now clickable link instead of obvious attachment!

September 2010

Nice work on the calendar.
Just 2 things on the September calendar. First the week numbers and the dates don't match. Sept 17th is a Friday in week 37 not week 38. Could be a bit confusing. Also delete the attachment for august.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Mike - thank you for your comments! I have now corrected the week numbers (for September and the other months) but unfortunatley no-one seems to know how to delete attachments... maybe I should just make a new thread called Current Calendar!!

As is Sailonline's tradition, we shall be racing the 383nm from Aberdeen to Lerwick to (virtually) take part in the Up Helly Aa festivities there which take place for the first time since 2020 on Tuesday, 31 January.

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
