I like to see a legends board. This could include several categories, like a list of the race winners and series winners; most miles sailed; who has been ranked #1; most races finished. Similar idea to the badges but with more detail.
Longest % of time aground.

Fastest time excluding time aground.

There were seveal more suggestions made in the past including syenum'd analysis.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
I to, have thought along these lines...
Like a 'SOL Trophy Room' or 'Hall of Fame'

Soon more things like this should be possible (fingers-crossed, no promises)

Fastest time for what?

What is "syenum'd anaylsis"?

There was long ago and far away such a list.
By a soler called Wiz. It would be nice if anyone knows how to get in touch or even catch a glimpse of his code.

Sorry my fingers got fuddled!!

One analysis I looked at was his "national" raking. I don't know the real story about 3 or 4 years ago, however it seemed that the SoL gods did not want to link to his analysis.

I know we swapped emails and I suggested some fun prizes as well, At that time all the kiwi boats were racing for a real bottle of Mt Gay and we even had the Royal Akarana Yacht Club's Around White Island Race present a bottle of rum at their official prizegiving.

Aaron: Fastest time for sailing the course so I could see that if I had NOT gone aground, I could of been in 47th place instead of my 254th position.

If only I could be more dedicated!! LOL!!

It would be an encouragement to do a bit better.

CONCENTRATE
CONCENTRATE
CONCENTRATE

are the 3 important requirements when racing IMHO.

OK - just it seemed we were talking about a 'Legends Page' - 'Hall of Fame' whatever - so I didn't think you were referring to including individual races there...

But, time ashore is not recorded...

Why don't people just try harder not to hit the hard stuff?
All it really takes is very little sleep for the duration of the race and possible divorce proceedings... Totally worth it ;-)
(Easy for me to say, I'm a Bachelor)

But seriously - many suggestions require changes to the underlying data model kept on the SOL server. That is one of the hardest things to do just at the moment. So we need to try to work within the data SOL currently does collect (for the time being)

I would still like to see a LOG of my sailing filled in for every hour + times of steering changes + when aground, when refloated.


Ideally being able to download it so that when I do wake up or get back to my PC, then if desired I could download by clicking on a "button".

Perhaps a choice of TXT, CSV
and M$ Excel for formats.

Uruguay to Cascais - 2020 RTW - Leg 4
The last leg of Sailonline's Round the World Race 2020 takes racers from Punta del Este, deep in the South Atlantic, to Portugal's Cascais on the North Atlantic seaboard. More than 5000nm of almost only open water, bar three easily avoidable, well-known island groups and Fernando de Noronha and Madeira, in our much-loved Orange 125ft catamaran for your leisurely enjoyment of only wind, wind and wind and maybe some wine, chat and cheese!

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1
According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.
