    The sailonline community are a fine helpfull friendly group of people from around the globe, in many cases its gone way past online friendship and turned into personal friendship and ship mates in real life races and pleasure sailing. This brings me to the reason for this post.

    What would you never have had the chance to do without sailonline.

    For me theres a long list of things, one that springs to my mind is, I would never have woke from a deep sleep with Gilles foot under my nose :-), Strange but true.....

    Anyone like to share there (would never have done's) with us ???

    Thanks hmm for clearing that for me, only I finished Lake Winnebago race 4 am Sunday morning and the race closed Monday but SYC still does not show these results, I hate to complain but it keeps happening, I know its not that important but its the first time I have had a shot at getting high up the ranks. Sorry for being a pain.
  • SYC rank update.
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Hi, Im sure one or two of the committee are getting bored of my same question. But I still do not understand the update of the SYC ranking.A couple of people say it updates 24hours after race first finisher someone else said after race close. Please will you clarify how and when it updates. Thanks.

    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    I was wondering why the Cowes - St Malo race result is not on the SYC ranking. Im sure it was during the race. And I thought it was a syc ranking race
    Thanks .
