    Thank you!

    I like these changes. It was becoming almost a full time job to be competitive in the Ocean Championship.

    The idea of the quarterly Champs for those who can do all of the races is also nice.

    Well done!

    I think the Dutch speakers deserve their own chat area. They are much more active than some other ones.Like RC said, some of the different language chats are never used.
  • Re: Sailors with routers
    Board » General Discussion
    It is true that this router bashing is not fair. I believe that most sailors who do use a router also spend more time on the game.

    It takes me at least 15 or 20 minutes at each wx to do routing calculations. On top of that I usually spend at least a few hours (often more) each day monitoring the situation and hand steering my little boat.

    So if there should be a division between boats it should not be between router/non-router user. But rather between the time spend on the game. And that would not work.

    This kind of action will not increase the number of players in SOL. In the inferior VR platform over 6000 players have already finished the first leg of the VOR race. Some of them SOTP, thousands of them are router users.

    I think Husse pointed out some valid points but it does seem a little bit artificial to me.

    Like some pointed out a router is a tool to speed up calculations that could be done in, lets say Excel, or pen and paper.

    Should there then also be different results for people who spend 2 hours or more on SOL per day, and those who spend less energy?

    We could also have a separate class for those that do not even use the WX slider, except to see the pretty animation of the wind changes over time. A PSS (Point and Shoot Sailor) podium. Sarcasm here.

    We only have a few hundred active sailors. Most of the shorter races are raced without routers anyway. This should only be considered for Ocean races. In my opinion not even there.

    Could we have 1 degree wind square? The file would only be about 1MB. It should not be a problem for download speeds.

    So since there was a reason to get a brand new Android device I did so. Works perfect on new phone.

    Thank you Zappe. Excellent work.

    I downloaded the app, entered username/pwd and selected a race that I am entered in.

    At this point I get an error "Unfortunately, SOL Android Client has stopped." There is an OK button to close out the notification, and I'm back in the Apps screen. If I purposefully enter wrong username I get a "failed to login" message. So connection is OK.

    I have never used this phone (or Android) until today. Samsung Ace 3. Android V4.2.2. It says that software is up to date. I must be the cause of this.

    Thanks,
    JJ

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.
