Hay all sailors. I promise and will sail the GGR SOTP, in my case like all races, because I don't know anything about using a router on SOL and IRL. I am really excited to sail the GGR on SOL, I hope I will start on time and good winds for everyone

I will race SOTP
I will once again put up the SOTP flag in flagpole for everyone who had _SOTP added to their name by RC. If you're not familiar with the concept of flagpole: it gives a number of unofficial rankings per race, for example a ranking with only people who declared to sail SOTP. In order to declare this using flagpole, you hoist a flag. You can hoist multiple flags in order to appear in multiple rankings (I believe there's even a 60+ flag for "senior citizens").

The continuous scale of SOTP'ing

The SOTP flag is traditionally for those who do not use routing software. Other tools are allowed, like WxInspector.

From what I understand, in this particular race if you declare to sail SOTP via this thread, you declare note to use any external tools, so no WxInspector or brainaid DC editor. This is a little bit more strict that what the SOTP flag has been used for in the past, but if you declared to sail SOTP in this thread, you are definitely qualified to fly the SOTP flag on flagpole.

I have now also added the RETRO flag. If you hoist this flag you declare not to use any modern help. You only use the official sailonline clients and the options within, but nothing else. You won't even use spreadsheets or calculators. I will not hoist this flag on behalf of you when you declared you are sailing SOTP in this thread, but feel free to hoist the flag yourself over on sol.kroppyer.nl/flagpole/ if you are the die-hard SOTP'er.

______________
While you're logged in at flagpole, you can also hoist a couple of other flags. I personally like the sleepy pennant, which you can hoist in order to be ranked together with other people who don't get up in the middle of the night for a wx update.
SOTP.
Miss Saigon is sailing SOTP.
Hi all, I'm new to the online sailing business, but will give it a crack! SOTP sounds like fun, I'm in :-)
Just my usual.
I will be sailing in this race just like I have sailed in every other race that I have participated in on SOL. SOTP has been the only way I have raced for how many years now!!!

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
