    Aaron, You and your passion are missed. Winning legs at A3 series was quite emotional for me.

    You great legacy to SOL will last.

    I prefer to stay with Baltic 12 hour forecast. Bigger differences between weather after 12 hours make it interesting. It would be pleasant to have weather delivery on time. Pity that time of weather delivery is out of SOL hands.

    Small addition: some boats went north even after rounded Sri Lanka wide.

    .. The boats furthest north were in the pack close to Sri Lanka..

    RainbowChaser please do not suggest anything more demanding for your admin work (such as setting reminder to add NOR link ). Keep it simple. Publish NOR link with race.

    +1 to any notification of quite rare NOR changes.

    My suggestion:
    Highlighted alert should be added just under race name in race info in case of NOR change. Something like "NOR changed at YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM UTC".

    Believe me or not:
    I did not have intention to brake any known rule.
    I was at lead at the mark and just one boat was within striking distance. My move (within SOL rules and outside ISAF) did not help me past any boat.

    If you believe, that while being in the lead I broke unwritten rule from IRL race sailing intentionally and dishonest myself within SOL community for just another win, feel free to judge.

    Thank You for education about ISAF rules. I will apply ISAF rule for my future rounding whether will be enforced by server or not.

    I would like this kind of incident and personal suicide could not happen to others in future and their learning curve would be much easier than my. To eliminate future incidents we should appreciate value of 76Trombones input to this case.
    It should be helpful update code for mark rounding (as stated) as I believe automatic rule enforcing is necessary. Because solving protest by committee would waste time of all participants. This time should be used for much useful thing (such as development of SOL :-) ). Another step is to update rules in manual.
    Until rules enforcement will be updated, it should be helpful setup races with knowledge of current limits of server code.

    Best regards

    As I said earlier in the chat:

    "I am apologize for die hard sailors, but my move was within rules of SOL."

    "From manual and game behavior:
    I have a understanding, that rounding rule is when accessing mark. So when mark is marked as rounded, you can deal with next mark."

    Hope my move, which was forced by defending position within SOL rules, will help to advance SOL rule closer IRL rules. So people who never sailed race, as me, can be educated about IRL sailing racing rules.

    Thanks to All who tried to understand SOL rules and published their opinion that my move was legal.

    Thanks to bushing All others.

    Have a great time IRL.

    From my observation:
    Server troubles were at 22.6.2011from at least 0:50 to 2:00 UTC.
    Web client did not download. Mobile client worked (without map) and Brainaid site was able to update navigation data and fire DC.

    At 3:30 UTC (may be sooner) Web client downloaded correctly.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
