Board » Technical Discussion » Trifecta Regatta Format

I am posting this topic here to determine if it is possible, within the SOL framework, to have a 3 leg race registration that offers 3 boats for the 1st leg & then only the 2 remaining boats for the 2nd leg & just a single boat choice for the final leg. I have fully developed proposal in mind but it hinges on this sine qua non concept. I am not looking for a discussion on the suitability of this approach at this time but just an assessment of its workability with a minimum of technical resources required to implement it.
None so blind
There is currently no way to present a different boat choice for different users (depending on their boat choices in previous races).

A proper implementation for this is not a simple thing.

But please, when you're ready, share the idea. I would love to see more races with a boat choice on sol, and a game mechanic like this would make it even more interesting.
The main idea is to have the full event based on total elapsed time but the choice & order of boats for each leg to be determined by the skippers. Every leg would, in all likelihood, have contingents of all 3 boats.

Sol has had a few occasions in the past where more than one boat type was employed & watching the arcs for each type at the start of these races always fascinated me. The eventual leader would not be an obvious forgone conclusion until all three legs were complete keeping interest high during each leg.

I also envision being able to give recognition, at least in the blog post that follows the conclusion of the full Regatta, mini podiums for the different boat types leg by leg.

I was hoping that like the timed race restart registration that a simple logic gate would gray out one of the radio buttons available based on the skipper's previous choices.

Just to be clear I am not suggesting running the same course 3 times but each leg to be a segment of an established course within the SOL inventory.

This is an interesting idea, unfortunately there is no way now to make the server limit the choices available as kroppyer said.

One option is to do this in voluntary basis and just disqualify boats that use the same boat twice. It would be bit more work for admins but still doable I guess..

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
