    Good Points and tought´s everybody
    I have second thought´s about my idee with different classes, all our input and thoght´s have made it clearer,at least for me, about the advantage with just one group as it is today.
    But i´m looking for a way to attract new sailors to SOL, it much more fun if we are more sailors.
    Is it possible to have a SOL-router, that everybody can se, with simple instructions how to use it ??
    I Think, and know, that a lot of people loose the interest in SOL when they see the same boat´s rushing along to the endpoint.
    I understand the effort that people put in too understand routers and use them to make the best way to the endpoint, they have all my respect.
    But i remember when my friend Mega30, introduced me to this game, i have sailed before, so i understod how it works.
    But i´ve never used a router in my Life, i´ve looked at the wind, sail, see & the feeling of the boat.
    I just think SOL should have an easy and understandable free router, soo that all, neewbies and oldies, could race on the same terms.
    And if SOL could get more people interested in sailing, virtual or alive, it should be great.
    I just have too thank you all for putting thoughts and effort into this thread, i hope it keeps on so we can develope SOL further

    Even though this topic has been discussed in the past, so I think that this time has come up so many good thoughts in this topic! I hope some of the ideas become reality, especially some sort of tutorial or basic education. I have learned a lot from this discussion from all doubt many people. I have sailed dinghies and small sailboats in our archipelago, so if I'm going to sail on the oceans so maybe I need to develop myself and maybe learn sailing with software soon ...!

    We all can make SOL better, if we put some effort into it.

    I think you all have great idea's and good points.
    But i think you all are missing my point, i maybe wasn't clear enough about that.
    I want to attract new SOL'ers, or at least don't loose more SOL'ers.
    I don't have anything against routers, excel-sheets or whatever anyone uses to find the best way to the endpoint.
    The point is that we are getting fewer and fewer.
    We need to do some Changes to attract new SOL'ers, everything has to change sometime to develope.
    I think new SOL'ers quit when they don't have a chance against the "elite" who all probably uses routers.
    Maybe it should be in the manual, as Dingo so wisely says, nobody has explained how to use a router. Maybe even SOL should have their own downloadable router to SOL'ers to use, with a manual to it.
    This problem isn't new to SOL, during 2012 people stoped using SOL, as it is probably today.

    starting to get over it
    It's not about router or no router, it's about making SOL attractive and attracting new members who like too sail in the virtual live as well as i irl.

    Thanks for your thought's, but we don't have to make it so difficult.
    We can do it as we allways done it, race to the finnish.
    But we can have two classes, R for Routers, L for Livesailors.
    The rules for the definitions between L &R can be discussed, the final decision should bee taken by the board.
    We can race to the finnish together but with the differnce that R & L are presented in two different podiums, one in R & one in L.
    We don't need too make it so difficult, we all like to sail and race.

    Great idea Husse! Who can participate with a nice technical solution? Because this is an excellent idea.

    Hello all SOL sailors
    All over the World we love to race the virtual races that SOL creates all over the World.
    I´ve been doing this for a couple of years, and i just love to race against other people in other places over our globe, i think we all do.
    I just Think that it is little boring, that its allways the same people that wins the races.
    Routers are good and nice to have, but there are a lot of other sailors that don't want to use them for a lots of reasons.
    Is it not time to do the same in SOL as in Formula 1, have different classes, but race the same race ???
    I'm thinking of two classes, one with routers, and one without.
    We could all race the same race, but with a flag/marker Before our boat, like R, for racing with router, or L, for racing live without racer, that could be simple to do when you register to a race.
    We could then race in the same race but in two different classes, but on the same track, so as speach.
    At the finnish there is two classes, R & L
    I Think that we all engaged in SOL are mature enough to register in the right class, we all should see if somebody goes into a L-classed race with a router, that should be R-classed.
    Thats up to the person who is the skipper, i'm just sure of that everybody who*s sailing SOL should register to the right class, it's just more fun to race against people with the same chanses.
    As it is today, we who likes to race without routers, don't have the same tools to do the race at an equal level with those who have routers.

    In memory for AGage & his family
    Sorry Jen, for you & your daughters loss. I never knew him as a person, but i am confident that if he was as good father as he was as a sailor he was the best
    When he was sailing SOL i allways kept a´n eye for the course AGage was taking, AGage was the first name that i learned in SOL, he was the spirit for me & for lots of other sailors.
    I´m very sad for you & our loss.
    He is an outstanding sailor & i will allways have him in my mind.
    Take care of you Jen

Current Races:

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
