Hay all sailors. I promise and will sail the GGR SOTP, in my case like all races, because I don't know anything about using a router on SOL and IRL. I am really excited to sail the GGR on SOL, I hope I will start on time and good winds for everyone

We have verified that there are two boats being skippered by different people here. Thanks.

I will race SOTP
I will once again put up the SOTP flag in flagpole for everyone who had _SOTP added to their name by RC. If you're not familiar with the concept of flagpole: it gives a number of unofficial rankings per race, for example a ranking with only people who declared to sail SOTP. In order to declare this using flagpole, you hoist a flag. You can hoist multiple flags in order to appear in multiple rankings (I believe there's even a 60+ flag for "senior citizens").

The continuous scale of SOTP'ing

The SOTP flag is traditionally for those who do not use routing software. Other tools are allowed, like WxInspector.

From what I understand, in this particular race if you declare to sail SOTP via this thread, you declare note to use any external tools, so no WxInspector or brainaid DC editor. This is a little bit more strict that what the SOTP flag has been used for in the past, but if you declared to sail SOTP in this thread, you are definitely qualified to fly the SOTP flag on flagpole.

I have now also added the RETRO flag. If you hoist this flag you declare not to use any modern help. You only use the official sailonline clients and the options within, but nothing else. You won't even use spreadsheets or calculators. I will not hoist this flag on behalf of you when you declared you are sailing SOTP in this thread, but feel free to hoist the flag yourself over on sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/ if you are the die-hard SOTP'er.

______________
While you're logged in at flagpole, you can also hoist a couple of other flags. I personally like the sleepy pennant, which you can hoist in order to be ranked together with other people who don't get up in the middle of the night for a wx update.
SOTP.
Miss Saigon is sailing SOTP.
Hi all, I'm new to the online sailing business, but will give it a crack! SOTP sounds like fun, I'm in :-)
Just my usual.
I will be sailing in this race just like I have sailed in every other race that I have participated in on SOL. SOTP has been the only way I have raced for how many years now!!!

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020


The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
