Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » Preliminary ranking system

Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 Next

After a race, the winner gets 1000 points, last place gives 1 point. When a race is 30 days old the ranking points from that race is starting to fade out. After 12 months (to eternity) the race gives only 5% of the original points. Total ranking points is calculated as the sum of all races participated. The ranking is only processed about one time per week. Note: The ranking system is preliminary and is subject to evaluation.

As Lattjolajbanladan pointed in the chat we need to have a look at the timed races.

These are now counted as equal as far as I can tell, so the number of times tried gives you an advantige. Maybe we should only count the best result of such a race.

I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
I agree timed races may count a little too much, especially if you've entered with several boats. Would just counting the best boat be too harsh?
Actually only the best run for each boat should be in the results for a timed race. An example: 3 boats A, B, C starts twice and the result is:
1. A
2. B
3. C
4. B
5. A
6. C
As all 3 have runs in the upper part of the list all will get lots of points.
In this case the list should be (at least when the points are counted).
1. A
2. B
3. C
I think that you should limit the sum to the 10 best for each boat. If all races are counted it will be too important to participate in all of them to get a good ranking.
Well... this is a balance... We really do want to encourage participation at the same time as achievements must be rewarded. Remember that most members will not be up fighting about places 1-3. Perhaps you are right. Lets think about it for a while. Note that the current ranking system is on probation.

i agree with "lattjo" to participate in so many races as possible is a
main thing for high ranking with this system, not all of us are "computernörds" and are not able start in all races.



While I see your points - if you look at the current ranking - don't you think it looks pretty fair?

How do you distinguish two equally good skippers? Isn't a good factor after actual result, the number of races he/she has participated in?

Also keep in mind the results degrade over time.
So the rankings are not static, in this way you have to keep active to remain your position.
I think we need to check how this all works out and have a look at it in a few weeks.

But as always all suggestions are welcome.

Of course, there are two things to take in acount, participation/result.
perhaps a way should be to take an average of the latest result and let old one´s "fade" a way.

The more you race the more skilled you become and that should of course be rewarded.
But i don´t think that a lot of mediocre result should be rewarded in the ranking.

It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
