  • Re: Aaron James Gage - 1971-2012
    Board » In memoriam
    These news bring me so much sadness. We have lost a friend, and the world has lost a bright mind that had so much more to give. Aaron was one of those people that you knew burned bright from the first time you talked to him. Always great, always striving to learn, always passionate.

    My thoughts go to his family in these hard times. Aaron, you will live on in our memories. Rest in peace.

    I removed the contents of the Schakel's list since it is only work in progress and does not represent a true/complete outline of the future races. Sorry :)

    Not sure about the cursor thing - sounds like a flash bug. Apple is not going to kill flash - they're just not going to ship it by default with Safari.

    You could also try Chrome - it ships with its own flash version embedded!

    How long do you wait before reloading - the client SHOULD show the new command result within 30 seconds (and most likely < 15 seconds). Are you behind some caching web proxy?
  • Re: Preview vs Post

    Well, the forum software basically sucks, that's the closest answer I can give ;) I've started a slow process of looking at alternatives but integrating them into the website is a good chunk of work...
  • Re: The "two boat rule".
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    The one boat per race per user rule is mainly for two reasons:

    1) To avoid situations where people cover multiple strategies

    2) To avoid users taking up "more than their share" of server resources (the number of boats that can be handled by the system without server upgrades is finite.

    So in general, no, it's not allowed to have multiple boats at any time, much because 2) will always be an issue.

    Hmm, yes, knowing that a lot of the SOL battles are taking place in office environments, maybe a more discrete sound should be used?
  • Re: "Rounding Marks"
    Board » General Discussion
    The result of todays excitement is a server bug. Normally the server "un-registers" the rounding if you go back outside the mark. We are currently investigating this bug and will also most likely correct affected boats.

    Please DO NOT do that, it's a very old version, among other thing containing a nasty bug caused A LOT of data to be downloaded unnecessarily.

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.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024


Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
