We have some numbers in the French forum to regret the establishment of too many buoys, which limits the space initiative of the skippers.

No doubt that those who offer us feel like we were racing to virtually visit the places they like.
But, most of the time, because of these checkpoints, the end of the race comes down to a path that ships waiting in front of them fell asleep and his magnifying glass and tack.

Grace, restore the initiative to each skipper to choose its course through a maze of islands.

Thank you for your attention

Nous sommes un certain nombre dans le forum français à regretter la mise en place de bouées en trop grand nombre, ce qui limite l’espace d’initiative des skippers.

Sans doute que ceux qui nous proposent des courses ont envie de nous faire visiter virtuellement les lieux qui leur plaisent.
Mais, la plus part du temps, du fait de ces points de passage, la fin de la course se résume à un cheminement de bateaux qui attendent que celui qui les précède se soit endormi et loupe ainsi son virement de bord.

De grâce, redonnez l’initiative à chaque skipper de choisir sa route au milieu d’un dédale d’îles.

Merci de votre attention
Thank you for your input!

Obviously when someone creates a race for SOL they do so to make it enjoyable or, sometimes, to copy a real-life race (which may have many buoys).

Races designed by SOLers for SOLing is a unique opportunity and to be encouraged.

It is therefore very important to ensure that the race calendar shows a variety of races so, I am sorry if you and others have felt there are too many buoy-intensive races!

Perhaps you would like to offer a race-design yourself? The process is very straightforward and, if you are basing your race on a real one, we can perhaps race it at the same time?

Merci pour votre commentaire.

Evidemment que lorsque quelqu'un crée une course pour SOL il est pour l'amusement ou, parfois, à faire une copie d'une véritable course (ce qui peut avoir plusieurs bouées).

Conçu par SOLers pour SOLing des courses est une occasion unique et être encouragés.

Il est donc très important pour assurer que le calendrier montre une variété de races ... ainsi, je suis désolée si vous et d'autres ont ressenti il y a trop de courses avec beaucoup de bouées !

Vous souhaitez peut-être offrir une course-conception vous-même ? Le processus est très simple et, si vous basez votre course sur un véritable, nous pouvons peut-être il planifier en même temps ?
My comments are probably excessive. Indeed, it is normal to place buoys in a race, especially if the race is a reflection of an actual race.

By cons, it is regrettable to see the buoys positioned in some races in places that ultimately hamper the race.

The skippers who offer course races have justifiable reasons.
But is not this also the role of SOL make suggestions to afford to have a race the least restrained as possible ?
What you're probably more or less success.

This remark of mine is going in the direction of improving the attractiveness of shopping.

I'm a sailor virtual, not a true skipper. But maybe one day I will propose a race of my own.
Thank you

Bonsoir RC
Mes propos sont sans doute excessifs. En effet, il est normal de positionner certaines bouées dans une course, d'autant plus si cette course est le reflet d'une course réelle.

Par contre, il est regrettable de voir des bouées positionnées dans certaines courses à des endroits qui finalement brident la course.

Les skippers qui proposent des courses ont bien sûr des raisons motivées.
Mais n'est ce pas aussi le rôle de SOL de leur faire des suggestions pour permettre d'avoir une course le moins bridée possible ?
Ce que vous faites sans doute avec plus ou moins de succès.

Cette remarque de ma part va dans le sens d'améliorer l'attrait des courses.

Je ne suis qu'un marin virtuel, pas un vrai skipper. Mais peut être qu'un jour je vous proposerai une course de mon cru.

Vous avez raison avec "Par contre, il est regrettable de voir des bouées positionnées dans certaines courses à des endroits qui finalement brident la course. " et "Mais n'est ce pas aussi le rôle de SOL de leur faire des suggestions pour permettre d'avoir une course le moins bridée possible ? "

et j'espère qu'à l'avenir les courses seraient plus amusantes avec moins de bouées - je vais essayer de le rendre ainsi !

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
