Results actually do fade over time with the current system, read the explanation here:

I want to thank Gashagamarina for the posts. I might think that you have a point... hmmm...

My feeling is that any irl yacht club would promote participation, so I don't have a problem with that (although it probably works against me).
Great Move Club Committee.

All we need ia a good club sponsor and more prizes and we will have plenty of participation.
I am already planning a submission for reciprical rights with the CYCA RPAYC and ASC. See you on the water.

Great idéa, I'll join as soon as "CSN" freshen up the balance on my account, beein' a student doesn't get you rich, any chance of a student-discount?! ;)
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.

Guys isn't it an idea to make the nr of points dependent on the nr of entries per race? As the more entries the harder it will theoretically be to win....

Please, I want a limit on the "participation bonus points", like 1000 points (20 races).

I like the rankings now (obviously ;-), but as we are very even on the top, one missed race would mean giving up several placings...

Also, it is a bit funny, that in a race with less participants, the points difference between subsequent placings increases. For instance, if a pair mixes 1-2 finishes in two races, that who wins the race with _less_ participants gains an advantage in points.
Dear Laiska,
It is hard, lonely and cold on the top I guess. As much as we really appreciate your tricky situation and fully sympathize with you I am afraid that we cannot help you at the moment. However, since your case is so strong and moves us at heart we will discuss your suggestion in future revisions.

Regards
Jakob

Thanks Jakob, I knew you would understand my delicate situation. And appreciate my needs to rest once in a while... ;-).

Fremantle to Bali 2022
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.
