  • Re: RIP - In Memoriam - Rod
    Board » In memoriam
    Very sad news to hear.
    Rod has been around longer than I have and was a fine competitor. Especially in the practice races which he was always in when I had time to race in those.

    I am in Vermont, not far from where Rod lived in terms of the globe we raced around so many times. It was always nice to see him in races.

    Fair winds Rod.

    Look for tides, currents etc and you will find something like XTide.
    https://flaterco.com/xtide/

    Maybe this will help you to an answer for your question.

    In QTVLM look for configuration>gribs and harmonics.
    I can not imagine it to be useful in SOL. SOL routing does only use weather (grib).

    Hi Kipper1258,

    Is there a way to reduce the size of the "AutoGrib" pop up window?
    _____________________________________
    move your mouse-cursor to the left upper corner of the popup window and resize the popup-window.
    (with mouse leftclick-hold and move.with touchpad tap-hold and move)

    Assuming it is a 'windows' laptop. Mac or other os I do not know 'how to' things.

    If you do not see appear an arrow in a corner then double click somewhere in the top-middle of the popup-window and try again to resize.

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.
