    Well said - Win. My feeling exactly ...I'm still at a loss for words for this, the parting of a friend on SOL..

    This is such sad news of AGage's passing. He will be greatly missed...

    Joan and I are leaving in 12 days to go cruising for 6-8 months. Internet will be spotty and probably not good for racing. I will check-in when able to advise on how much RUM is left on board. Its been a fun two years of SOL racing. Hope to pick it back up the summer of 2011. Until then stay off that green stuff it ruins your ranking..

    Problem I'm having with this DNS scoring is, sometimes I'm not in a position to race but would like to join in the chat and watch the race. There needs to be a way to do this without being penalized.

    So Jakob, If I register for a 1000km race and don't start those miles are not added to my total miles and doesn't affect my ranking?

    Guys, I thought you said if we register and don't start the race DNS, this would not go against our overall scores. Looking at the SYC ranking for me, several races where counted even though I didn't start. Sometimes I join a race to chat since I don't have time to make the race.

    Guys, under the latest software. While setting a TWA of -170deg the CC is showing 508 deg. Might have left out the -360 if greater than 360... Like what I'm seeing..

    Jim

    Edit: BTW, I see this when putting in the TWA into the field, not when using the direction tool..
