UPDATED BOAT NAMES

Please note that all names posted up to this point have now, if registered in the Feeder Race, had their names modified by the addition of "_SOTP".

This amendment inrace of your boatname has no impact whatsoever on your usual login credentials, and just appears in the race itself.

Fair Winds, all!
This may be a nice opportunity to use flagpole again:
http://sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/

Log in using you sol credentials and select the GGR race. You can now hoist the SOTP flag. Now when people look at the ranking on flagpole, they can see your flag. It is also possible to filter the ranking on flags so that you can create a ranking with only the boats flying a SOTP-flag.

In addition to the SOTP-flag you can also hoist the (new) RETRO-flag. The SOTP flag is meant for people who do not use a router (but WxInspector, spreadsheets and other non-routing tools are allowed). With the RETRO flag you declare not to use a computer at all (apart from for the purpose of steering your boat of course).

I might take the liberty to hoist the SOTP flag on flagpole for everyone who declared to sail SOTP in this thread.
I'm in for SOTP
Hi, I am in for SOTP in this series.
=== Navegare Necesse ===
I, CelemansRKN, declare will race this prologue and the race proper (in two legs) by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, relying solely on the SOL predictor line and dead reckoning for navigation.
Halibut68 is in!
Count me in as well. Bimmer
I'm racing SOTP
Count me in. SOTP it is.
Count me in with the SOTPs if not too late.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
