Is there a boat named guest?

I did not see anything.
I could not steer
I could not enter a course

2nd thought: will all be right when no longer practice-racing??

Disappointed guest.

Nothing to enjoy. Guest boat invisible. No steer.

I think SOL-management does not like to have <guest> or <sol> active in a race. And even during practice-sailing <guest> is invisible.

In the beginning years of sailonline it was always fun chasing <sol> the very moment the race was open for registration. When practice-sailing started this was no longer done.

When the race was started <sol> could be sailed as a community boat. Skippers did not know each other; just fun of not knowing what the next move would be.

All of a sudden <sol> could not chat any more. I know why that was done; why after years <sol> is still banned from chat I do not understand.

<sol> and <guest> are positioned from race-start as -1 or 9999. OK. But why did sol-management take away all things that made navigating possible?

<guest> is still not visible/usable during practice-racing.

Seems this forum is not read/maintained by anyone who could change something in the working of Sail On Line. At least <guest> is still not navigable during practice racing.

Time to change this welcome message?

guest is intended as a spectator. As such the message "Now login with our guest account to view currently running races" is accurate, and guest being invisible is desired.

sol is available before the start of a race to:
- have a look at the race prior to registering and choosing a polar
- try out the platform without making your own account
- sailonline volunteers make use of sol to set up and inspect new races
For all of this, sol should behave as a normal boat during the pre-race period.

Once the race has started, sol should not interfere with the ongoing race.

As for whether there should be an option for "community racing", where multiple anonymous people take control of a single boat, that is another matter. I would suggest a (non-anonymous) message to the management via mail or the forum so that they can judge the interest in such a feature.

Thank you for your eloquent answer.
So log-in as sol is a better way to experience and view all the possibilities of your sailing and navigation simulation then doing so as guest.
