    Kroppyer: Very good, thank you! I have to read your comment some more times to understand it fully. But I like your approach to the subject, and your brilliant thinking about this eternal problem.

    The line between to calculate future changes, or just looking at predictor, wind arrows or present isochrones should divide the SOLers so easily that it should not be hard to define two classes. ???

    Calculate change of direction in advance. That is a huge advantage for those who are able.

    Maybe I'm way off, because everything will be figuring out by the math, I know.

    But I think it would be more fair to us who can't / bothered / have time / will pay for a software router to get a greater chance of getting a place on the podium.

    There will always be someone that defend the routers in a sailing game: Among other things that it is used IRL, and the difficulty of putting a definition between using it, or not. And more.

    This is expressed almost always by those using a router...because of course everyone wants to win! But...

    I think it would not be that hard to identify the "R" sailors and the "L" sailors!
    I've not used any router (yet...) but I think the advantage is that it is possible to predict cog or twa changes in advance, and put them into a delay command, so you can go to sleep or work or whatever. Am I right?
    That is not possible using the Wx Inspector, you have to check it quite often and do the changes "live", not in advance. Also, the isochrones is almost impossible to use as a strategic help just by looking at them. About the predictor line, it is a part of the game so I think we don't have to discuss if that is a router or not.

    Not all races have to be divided in R & L class, but the long ones I think.

    In a race with R & L class you have to decide if using a software router or not. If you register to the R class you may use the router as often or seldom as you wish during the race. If you register to the L class you promise to never use other tools than the "official and free" like Wx Inspector, or brainaid Tools, and those not calculate change of direction in advance. Quite simple roles. Agree?

    I think we can trust people doing a honestly choice.

    If there is doubt, why not testing it by start a non-router-use race without any implementation of changes in the interfaces and databases, to see how people react? Then we can decide to proceed or not.

    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. 😊
