The "Winners" get bored and drop out---and the "Losers" get dissatisfied with losing all the time, and also drop out.

Thats my point. You can adjust some current settings and rules, but you might win the battle, but lose the war.
Viva Robberto and Rod,

Good afternoon to the double “R” and all.

Again, the issue here isn’t the routing software that we can use.
The real and big PROBLEMA is the boat’s live data public disclosure which is unfairly used by some SOLers.
You can have the best routing software (whatever it is) for working your routes, but if you don’t have data (from the other boats) it is as good as the others, for tactical purposes.

There is no other way for explaining this.

Since hmm’s data center shutdown we had several races where we saw clearly different reactions from numerous SOLers more accustomed to the “route Copy/Pasting” and taking their race history success from the others effort.
This is an issue - live data from boats - that SOL is taking time to “understand”, namely that the alleged “benefits” don’t cover the bad “habits” it generates.

If you think this is correct - keeping the former hmm’s status - and also fair, just say from your justice.

When I start Soling, I didn’t know what a routing program was and even today I’m still finding out.
It took me a lot of effort and hours to learn it, without help from nobody.
Now and then, I try to help the others, something that nowadays is disused.

But that’s another story.
