    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Rules and Decisions
    Boatsitting seems to be 'Grandfathered' in from times past when informality was more prevalent. That does not however make this practice consistent with fair competition. This needs to be said & acknowledged. Not that I expect it to alter the landscape of acceptability in these environs.

    Since in order to steer another boat a new browser window must be opened & logged into would it be too much to ask that there be a Race thread in the Forum where the sitter posts when taking over the helm ? This would be more openly transparent.

    Secondarily I also propose that sitters be restricted to managing DCs left by the absent party. Such that if said boat BBQs that it could be sent on it way again along an analogous course but not prevented. Timings of DCs could also be modified to adjust for Wx updates or if a mark is cut short then it would be permissible to round it correctly and then returned to a course previously indicated by the DC list. This would keep the boat alive but would prohibit active racing by another's hand.

    These terms would be easier to adjudicate based on activity that goes beyond what the DCs called for.

  • Boston - Newport 2015
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    As we are on the verge of the Boston - Newport SYC 2015 Race I have concerns that I would like to place on the record whether it accomplishes anything or not.

    First off the listed staring time is 0600 utc which has no relation to the local time zone where it is being held. Please tell me this is a correctable oversight.

    Secondly the boat selected is the J30.

    Why is this boat being used so frequently of late ? It is as rather pedestrian & the polar is as smooth as a billiard ball, which presents fewer tactical choices than say the TransPac 52 which I believe to be a better choice for this historic race.

    Even so wouldn't it be preferable to increase the variety of boats assigned when we have so many at our disposal ?

  • Do All Boats Start The Same ?
    Board » Technical Discussion
    Since the Free Turn artifact has been 'fixed' it brings to mind another starting issue that occasionally has been discussed in chat relating to the way boats appear on screen at the Gun. In the very beginning some boats seem to get out of the gate sooner than others. So I was wondering if this is indeed the case in fact or simply a lag in the way fleet positions are reported to the client.

    From careful observation & astute deductive reasoning I am in the camp that believes the former to be the case. Which begs the questions what if anything can be done to get to the front of the queue. Also does the ranking of boats prior to the start of any race indicate the sequence in which the server will execute steering instructions on their behalf ?

    Granted a single jump advantage early on is rarely decisive by the end of any race but it is a definite psychological boost when reaching the 1st mark or headland down the course.
