Welcome to solfans!

We have been preparing for this for a while now, and we’re finally ready to share stories and knowledge from and for the sailonline community

For SOLers

We set this site up because we noticed that some SOLers have stories to tell that fit best on a blog rather than in a forum or chat. That are the stories that we want to share. We will feature topics like

  • routing – both with software and SOTP (seat of the pants)
  • weather patterns
  • strategies
  • positioning tactics
  • stories related to races on SOL
  • and more!

The exact content depends on what the contributors want to write.

By SOLers

Some people have set up their own blogging space in the past. Others have said they thought about starting a blog, but never made it happen – too complicated, not enough to talk about, hardly worth the effort.

If you ever felt like that, come join the crew here at solfans. We handle the technical details. You can focus on telling your story. And you will be in good company. Having the stories all in one place makes it more interesting for contributors and readers alike.

Be sure to bookmark this site. Check the site from time to time so you don’t miss out on cool tips and tricks. We are growing fast.

The captains,
kroppyer and javakeda

  1. Congratulations and kudos to you on this new site. This could very well become what I hoped for with SOL’d when I first set it up. Fair winds.

  2. Hi Guys
    Maybe the Solfans blog would be a better place to post copies of my paintings.
    If you dont know as yet – I have been doing a series of paintings on Corel and creating momentos for the podium placers in the RTW race. I thought showing these off here might add more visual attraction to the SOL community.
    Drop me a mail and I will send off png copies
