Whoooop: I see your very new here. A previous race, Sydney to Hobart with detour, was most interesting when the weather split the then evenly spread fleet into two very distinct divisions, seperated for the rest of the race by about 2 days from memory.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
Hi Guy's, I'm new to this aswell. Personally, we need more races from the around the world, so maybe we need a "sign-up a friend" campaign.

The greater the numbers racing (joined up) the increased funds that will support the ongoing development, and thus the increased oportunity to cut the competition any which way you want.

Personally and country/continent/regional comp would be great, only issue that I've noted, even if you combined the Kiwi's and us Ausies, we still couldn't compete against the vast numbers of common countrites.

So when we have 2000 - 3000 - 4000 on the start line, coooooool and then we might have an issue to address.

Anyway, can't stop now, we're trying to line up the finish line...

Happy racing
Great ideas! We work as hard as we can developing, setting up "in-port" races, next legs etc. Could one imagine a community-driven recruiting-a-friend-campain? ;-) Also, the country-challenges you are talking about is great. We need to ask Wiz (who is doing the ranking pages) to set it up.
...one of the guys behind the game...
I suggest having switches where you can:
-switch off all boats
-have top 5/10/100/200 etc.
-Or a % of the fleet sampled across the board to give an idea where the fleet is without clutter
-a friends list

Just some ideas
Take it "ESEA" go sailing
Perhaps showing only the boats on your page of the leaderboard is another option; or +\- 50 positions from you => the ones to overtake and the ones to keep ahead of, if possible!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.
