Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » Series Ranking and Dynamic rankings

I was looking today at the series ranking and I see that my ranking has improved in a number of series. This is due to the fact that some solers ceased to be members of SYC.

In my opinion, the series ranking should be kept unchanged after that series is closed even if a certain soler ceases to be a member. This way the proper series result would be a better historical representation.

I also think that the dynamic series should have a moment where it would be registered for the future. Ideally it would be the end of the year. This way one could see the ranking for a certain year. This one, of course, wouldn't also be changed with changes on SYC membership.

A last suggestion would be to move the older series to an archive area where they could be consulted.

All of the above are good suggestions and should probably be considered.

About keeping the ranking if not any more a SYC member. SOL policy has been that if you join SYC your previous results will count in rankings but if we freeze the rankings then this won't happen for past finished series.
But perhaps this would encourage people to join SYC at least at the time when a major series finishes.

One thing I have also thought is that only finished races would count for the rankings, at least for the continuing ranking it would be more clear. As rankings usually don't mean much until the finish it probably would make more sense.

On the subject of ongoing races: Fully agreed. It doesn't make any sense to have a ranking when the race is still on. Only at the end the proper ranking is established.
Since I'm on a suggestion mode:

I believe that in timed races only the best time of each boat should be recorded. All others should be eliminated. That should be reflected in the ranking too. The number of boats should be equal to the number of different participants, not to the number of runs.
(Timed races do not affect SYC rankings)

Not sure why but obviously I was labouring under a miconception.'

None so blind
Yes they do. Check the rankings and look for Holiday Star TIMED Race.

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.
