    Well, I couldn't drop it...
    Here's an example of how it works:

    http://www.stenum.se/sailonline

    - Latest 15 races (5 discounted)
    - I have not included the "Sailplanner-race" and the "Experimental-Venerrace".
    - All sailors are included now, should be only SYC-members ofcourse.
    - It says "DNS" (did not start), but can also mean "DNF" (did not finish).
    - I made a quick rip from sailonline.org result pages so there may be errors (a webservice would be neat!)
    - And, no, I didn't put in any effort to make it look good... =)

    Ranking systems in sailing has been up to discussion many times. It almost always falls back on the standard lowscoring system described in ISAF racing rules. Why not use it? Well tested and described (end of discussion?) and as I see it it will apply very well to SYC ranking system.
    For example: Use latest 15 races to conform a serie. Winner gets 1 point, 2nd place 2 points aso. You don't count 1 of 5 races.

    What I like with this system compared to current one:
    - Sailing IRL is not about winning 5 races of 30. It's about not making big mistakes.
    - A 5th place is worth the same for every race. It's not my fault the others didn't show up.
    - You have to participate, but if you miss a race you can still win.
    - Same system as IRL

    1. Participation is essential. But if you wan't to be in the top you can't even go on a vacation - it's a full time job.
    2. To reach the top for a newcomer, he can win every race, but he will be in the lead only after 6 months.

    Suggestions:
    1. Make a system that's allow you to skip 20% of the races. For example, maximum participation bonus is "no of races" x 80%.
    2. At the current rate of races, use only 3 months of races. (15 races!!)

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
