Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » Navigational Sailing Strategy

I would like to suggest that SOL put on site some navigational sailing strategy advice. I have the impression from what I have read here and there on the site that one of the objectives of the system / game developed here is to assist sailors to improve their navigational skills. But whereas the system is good for practice for navigators who know what they are doing, it reduces to a mere game for those who don't know enough. Speaking as one of the latter, who for a while thought he knew how to approach this, I now feel somewhat at a loss as to how to improve my performance. Some guidance on this would be appreciated - and I think there must be many who would benefit from such advice.
