    I do solemnly declare that in GGR 2018 I'll sail the SOTP, the whole SOTP, and nothing but the SOTP.

    ...so G, help me!

    As an example of proposed method, comparison on results of Refeno Rally Race, with graphical presentation.

    Note two big, short-time, jumps and the influence of not-in-Series racers on SPTS, vs linear result distribution with normalized RT.

    (non-Series PTS = not SYCM or has less than 4 races finished, thus not in position for overall 40' Seies high Ranking)

    FW all!

    Cheers João & Huib!

    Ment to write earler, unfortunately no time, but maybe even better now, with current 40'Series situation.
    Before the last race, and without discarding the worst points, SimeMali (Class40) has a safe margin of 37 places behind Kipper1258 (Class40) and 38 behind psail (SOTO). With discarding, that margin is only 3 and 8, respectively. (btw. just posted race#5 xls at the usual place). Thus seems reasonably me vote for no discarding. But...

    We all know that over a 6 month period there's a GREAT probability to have at least one race ruined because of work/health/family/other reasons. João, I entirely support your goals: 'Increase the competitive edge by approximating the different levels of SOL sailing expertise' and 'bring & keep more SOLers inside', and think discarding 1 bad race does exactly that: no one is eliminated by just one misfortune.

    You bouth have right on influence of number of events and number of competitors, and I'm afraid we have here the worst case scenario: small number of races and large number of SOLers, so every point has great specific weight.

    Because of that I'm thinking about a new way of scoring in 40 Series, and realy be glad to have your opinion.

    My basic idea is a sum of normalized race times. In each race, winner's time should be considered as 1.000000, and all other race times calculated relatively to that (so we have +0.000012 for each second delay in 24h race, but +0.000006 per second in 48h race).

    Example attached is for a few boats in Refeno Rally. As you can see, boat with 0.22% (not a mistake, it's 0.0022) slower time get +28 PTS, then for further 10% 17 PTS more, and further 0.3% 6 PTS more. That distribution doesn't seems fair.

    With normalized race times, all races are equally weighted, the worst result can be discarded, and there's no cumulative delay for slower boats in longer races. This way also minimize influence of occasional, not in-Series racers on overall Series ranking.
    (This model maybe can be applicable on TR Series too)

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on this idea (and from other SOLers, oc :) ), also considerations how to handle DNF and DNS/DNC boats.

    I'll try to do a simulation of that method on current 40' Series results, ASAP (but welcome any volunteer :))

    Be well, stay well, FW!

    Mladen / SimeMali

  • Re: Start times

    Hi SOLers!

    I'd like to offer somehow different view on this. With start 0.5 hr before new WX, skipper have 5.5 hrs window for routing, confusion, rerouting, decisions, DC setting, a cup of coffee with doubts, DC re-setting etc. Or simply set DCs and go to work/bed, returning to race for new WX. However, he/she can be sure for boat's course for the first 0.5 hr of the race, even with DCs set 5 hrs earlier, with no unpleasant surprises.

    We all have to get up at least once in the night for the new WX anyway (in longer races), but with start time 0.5 hr after WX, skippers get only that 0.5 hr for all mentioned above, and all prior considerations and DCs already set would become useless.

    Me think it's rather to have known accurate WX conditions on start 5.5 hrs before than only 0.5 hr, while have to check new WX anyhow. And that leaves more opportunity for SOLers to find the time and set start DCs, if needed.

    With start right after new WX, that opportunity is limited, and if skipper is unable to go online inside this 0.5 hr window before the start, that can be major handicap in this crucial part of race.

    Fair winds all!

Sailonline’s 11th Birthday Balloon Race
Eleven is an odd number, numerically as well as numerologically. Boastful and extravagant, adding one to the complete and perfect ten, 11/11 is also the day and month WW1 ended, so a number well worth celebrating after all. Whimsically then, in honour of SOL’s 11th birthday, your SRC gives you a re-run of 2013’s Trans-Atlantic Balloon Race. This race to be the first to ‘land’ your balloon in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher is not for the faint-hearted, nor for the serious-minded. Unusually, SOL’s balloon, polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones, will not ‘sail’ over land and will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although beyond a ‘beam reach’ it will not go. Good luck!!

Silverrudder 2018
Sailonline welcomes you to the third "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2018 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our new Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 22 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2018

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
