    I will be sailing in this race just like I have sailed in every other race that I have participated in on SOL. SOTP has been the only way I have raced for how many years now!!!

    76 Trombones. I will agree with your theory that we are using the south pole for distances. Then, I am presently 200 miles closer to the south pole than the leader and I am still listed as 1400 miles behind them? I am sorry but your theory doesn't add up with the rankings.

    I can't figure this out! I have 1907 miles to Cape Horn. NZL 2389 has 2101 miles to Cape Horn. The mileage shows that I am behind them by 1200 miles. It still shows that I have 5300 miles to go. Sorry I only have around 4000 miles to go. What is going on here? Please advise. This kind problems have happend before when crossing the dateline. Please check before the race starts in 18 hours.

    Could you please make the map a lot bigger to include Japan and countries in that area. The present course does not allow me to do the race properly, I believe

    I just went into the race and now I am being logged in from the original BoatA that I havn't been able to use since the start of the race. More SNAFU again. This is stupid that I couldn't even get a response from anyone at SOL.

    To whom it may concern. I registered for the Whitsunday race yesterday. I then started (Boat A) in the practice mode. Gave it some delayed commands and left SOL. Boat sailing fine. I went back into SOL about 45 minutes later and it showed an identical boat with my name on it at the starting line not moving (Boat B). Today I started on time and my boat is moving along great. At the time of the start there were two AcmeRacing boats registered in the race. I started a boat on time no problems(BoatA). Got passed some islands In 50th place and doing fine. Left SOL for about an hour. Went back in to check my boat and now I only can control the boat that hasn't even started yet back at 258 position (Boat B). (Boat A) is in 50th place I cannot get logged into. It will just fun aground somewhere. All I can log into is (BoatB) Again something is wrong here with your program. SNAFU again. I guess I will just blow this race off. Again SNAFU AcmeRacing
  • Again SOL has a very big problem with finishing times.
    Board » Technical Support
    SOL you seem to have a finish position problem still. I know you don't want to fix it but I am tired of it. My boat finishes at the line and turns head to wind. OK. Boats that finish up to 2 minutes behind me by turning head to wind finish 10 seconds ahead. That is BULL SHI%. I am tired of beating boats to the finish line only to have them beat me. Can't you guys figure out how to get these boats to finish correctly. Don't give that junk about the clock and decimal seconds. That is not where the problem is. Boats that turn head to wind at the finish line are finished. Pure and simple. Boats that turn head to wind 2 minutes later CANNOT beat you by 10 seconds...........

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
