Why is it that the good guys go first?

Ive long held the belief that the brightest candles burn out the quickest. What a terrible loss to our sailing community!

Go well Aaron! We all will miss you!

Rainbow I propose Life Long Membership for Aaron! His contribution to SOL has been huge and the long list of postings is testament to his having touched us all!

George and Arlene Snoek
Hi Rainbow

I meant permanent membership - In Memorium

Sorry for the post maybe seeming crass

George
Sorry to hear about that. My condolences to his family.

Always working, always helping, always improving our SOL experience. You've left a lot of friends all around the world.

Fair winds, Aaron, wherever you are.
RC, I'll second Jaws' motion... Good idea.
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Hat tip to ShamrockPirate, very nice words.

Its been nearly two days since I heard the news of AGage's passing and haven't been able to put the right words together. Still can't find them.
I never met Aaron and didn't know him for very long, but being a few years older and having worldly experience under my belt, I knew he was quality from the first time we said g'day.
He introduced himself to me at the start of just my second SOL race and he gave invaluable tips on how to get around all the hidden tools and tricks. That was a sign of his generosity and willingness to help newbies. The words expressed by others here highlight just how generous he was to everyone in the SOL community and no doubt in real life he was the same. Also, his technical contribution to SOL was immense and will be sorely missed. However, life and SOL must go on and we must strive to continue the development and promotion of SOL. Aaron would want us to do so.

My thoughts are with Indi, Jen and Katrina, his family and friends.
We have lost a gem.

R.I.P. AGage - set sails and head for the next waypoint, eternity.

Hats off! A great Sailor and SOLer had passed away.

Farewell AGage, sail along in Peace!

Tragic news,
Remember him being so happy after winning three consecutive times
His technical input changed SOL forever.
Great sailor, friend, computer wizard.
Fair winds, Agage, sail on ….
My condolences to Aaron’s family and friends

Aaron

I am so shocked, that I cannot find words, yet I must. I feel crippled by sadness, and tears run down my face as I write this.

Thankyou. With your help, I learnt very quickly how to sail successfully in SOL. You helped me to understand how to be in the rat-pack, not just by following one of the leaders, but by making decisions for myself.

I wondered why you had not moved forward from the start on your last race. I wondered why I had not seen you online, why you were absent from races. You were a constant presence, and it is sorely missed.

Your willingness to help us newbies to sail better, your advise to help us learn how to be better sailors IRL, your willingness to take time out of your busy life to chat on skype. Your wonderful SOLing tools. Your passion.

So many people live their lives in desperate mediocrity, but not you Aaron - you lived your life with passion.

As a mother, my heart goes out to your mother. To loose a child is just wrong . . . and to loose a son with your passion for life, unimaginable.

My condolences to your family Aaron, for your loss must be felt very keenly indeed.

Blessed be my friend
May fair winds and following seas be with you always.
Merran

AWKR 2024


The Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta celebrates and promotes women's sailing in Australia. Comprising a week of intense racing on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, the event has grown to become Australia’s premier women’s regatta and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and over the past several years, Sailonline has been delighted to have been invited to offer all-comers (women and men) a virtual opportunity to race the Bay during AWKR week. This year, it’s an imaginary 80-miler in Sun Fast 3300s, which should prove a proper online challenge.

Nuuk RTI Sprint 2024


Welcome to Nuuk, capital of Greenland. It holds the title of warmest city in Greenland and is located at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the east shore of the Labrador Sea. The fjord is clear of ice, daylight plentiful, perhaps a tiny chill in air. This is the final sprint of Q2 and we have a new course for you. It is time to race in Greenland.
