Never used a router in SOL or IRL.
All my sailing is SOTP.
So happy to undertake this adventure in the same spirit as the IRL sailors.
Bon chance all!!
Goodness me - have I really been Solling for 10 years now??
ALL I have always since joining SOL sailed by SOP and will always continue to do so and have never has a router or any outside assistance. So its BAU for me as a SOTP sailor. Fair winds to all PR
Not a great problem - I've never used any router for SOLing (even if the kind man Bimmer tried to teach me how to). I'll do my best, but will sleep all night (or try to - too often the case, when wakening up in the night). FW all non router sailors, and the rest of you who can't resist to use it! :-)
Me too...of course I always do SOL SOTP. Sir Robin did not have GRIB files nor routing software. He did have a wind vane and the Atkin's design could be trimmed to hold a wind angle course. Don't know if any of the Original GGR boats had one but the old Tiller Master were popular 40~50 years ago.

The Tiller Master was easy to use and easy to fix. Usually the only thing that broke was the feed-back cord, a replacement could be made with whipping cord. In Baja once I found a screen door spring that worked to replace a broken spring. It could hold a better course than any deck ape in all but the very roughest conditions.
They did have shortwave radio, so they could get time for navigation and weather info and warnings from WWV, WWVH and similar stations in Europe and Australia.
I challenge skippers like Kipper, rafa, bonknhoot, rumskib,Sadlersailing, longreacher, kenza, etc. to put down the routing software and join us SOTP sailors. That could be interesting. :-)
I'm i n for SOTP. Might even start on time.
I pledge to sail the prolog by the SOTP. It was much more fun anyway, when this was the norm.

I'm in - will sail SOTP, as always.
SOTP for me, as always.
No other way, SOTP for me.
