@ cal sorry darling for the joke!!!! you tempt me lolllllllllllll now you know!!!!!!!

MO-PAYEPAYE
I agree with Schakel. I am one of those who hasn't sailed during the last months because of:
1. I disagree to sail in the same competition as routers
2. the amount of races to sail is to much to keep you up in the ranking
"Sailing is an Art"
We do agree that WE need time anyway to be hight in the ranking!!!
But for my part I do think that it's a big stimulation to compet with some who r using routers!!!!
Caus you learn a lot!!!
MO-PAYEPAYE
Right now in the top 10 ranking I garantee that 5 of us ( maybe more)are not using routers!!!!!!!!!!!!
MO-PAYEPAYE
You are right! I do agree with you kath!

the discusion router - non router is a non discussion. It is very possible to do good in rankings as a non router, but it is time consuming.

To my opinion at least the wiz rankings are missing.( nation+newbie)
To atract newcomers and give them some competition introduce a ranking for them in which they compete 10 out of 20 races
That way they make quick ranking progres against players in the same situation.
Nations cup might be fun as wel.
More divisions may be added but i am fine with the current ranking system
it would be helpful if the dates of the races were listed on the individual ranking pages. then you could more easily tell which races were about to 'expire'

thx
I occasionally post a list of races most likely to be dropped from the rankings. Last one was about a week ago.

The sea is lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to sail before I sleep, And miles to sail before I sleep.
As a non-router I think that you may learn more from competing with routers but I think it would be much more fun to compete against non-routers only.
The main reason is that when competing against routers you know that they are going the best route considering the forecast will not change. If there
are only non-routers the outcome of different tactics would feel much more uncertain and the race would be much more exciting.

An easy way to test this is to set up a couple of races for non-routers only. No ranking points for these to start with.

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
