  • Performance loss Traverse Race
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee
    Hi All
    Im not one to complain and with routers so in abundance and still a STOP Sol competitor I do think the Performance loss on the RP 66 is so unrealististic I am just staggered. Yes whe you bbq but not a tack 2 or 3 mins to build up speed but this is silly.
    Im struggling with this along with such an unlevel playing field as it is.
    Please dont loose the heart of SOL.
    Tim PR just not happy at where we are going here

    Hi All,
    I have searched everywhere and can see the final overall standings for this race, have they been published yet or is this still WIP as I know you had a lot to do to finalise.
    Just after such a long race dying to know how I finally did.
    Many thanks for all your hard work.

    SOTP for me please I dont have never and never will use a router hence I never do very well but its the taking part. Maybe it should be considered mandatory to take part ?? hard to impose I know but levels the playing field a bit Fair winds all the SOTP's

    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

    Hi all and many thanks for the replies and the detailed info given and I can fully understand the dilema that was faced before the start. Please dont see my comments as a moan as it was not I (and im sure I speak for all SOLERS) are very very grateful for the time and dedication that you give to make sure we have a SOL and without you it would not exist. It was however as im sure you agree a horrible leg where the weather just went against going anywhere. Great news on the balance of the legs and I look forward to the usual fun and competitive racing. Thanks again for all that you do. PR

    Just a question as I know there has been some discussion around this but the course for the first leg seemed to be very protracted in comparison to the IRL course. Whilst I fully appreciate legal variations need to be implemented im not sure that it needed to be quite as protracted as it was. Is it possible to indicate if the next legs and following ones will (even if our start is delayed) be more following the IRL race or additional variations will be added. SOl is great and I will do every race but this leg rather put a dampner on something I was looking forward to doing. Many thanks Tim (Pocket Rocket)
