Zero credit racing with a level playing field

Within our Dutch NVRZG community we established a set of rules to be able to sail without credits and to have the same limitations each race. We created TEAM NVRZG ESCARGOT and most people created a second boat to participate. In the last months we sailed several races and the competition within the team is getting tough. Every race is a new challenge as all have the same options and limitations.

The rules are:
>You are only allowed to spend the credits that you receive for the race on sails and speed improvements.
This means you have to choose 1 of the 4 available options:
Option 1: Only light wind sails
Option 2: Only C0
Option 3: Winches + hull polish
Option 4: Strong wind sails + hull polish

depending on the race length you get more or less credits to spend, however the price of the options changes with the same amount.

>Skins, radio alert, restart and frigate are not included in the calculation, so you can choose them as you wish.

>VIP is not allowed, everybody can only use the 2 waypoints and 2 program points.

>On the dashboard you can see the setup of each boat so it is easy to check if somebody sails in the ESCARGOT CLASS.

>You can follow your position on the ranking list for your team.

We call out to communities to start an ESCARGOT team and follow the rules.

Who can beat us!!!

I race with No Money Sailors (Facebook) who are also allowed to use the credits earned in races. There are also some No Money Sailor teams but I am with another team.

I think managing a second boat would send me over the edge!

on your computer it is easy to manage up to 3 boats without log on and log off. create a short cut to a different language access for each boat:

I always thought 1 boat is the max I can handle, however 2 is not a big extra effort. 3 becomes challenging :)

Good tip, thanks.

Are you named GuestXXXX or can you name yourself/boat?

Yes can also use two (or more) differents browsers to manage two (or more) boats
I use 3 browsers with Dashboards (Chrome, Edge and Vivaldi) for ranking boats in PDD Challenge

I manage 3 boats in Edge with the 3 websites from VR.
On each site you can create a boat, only requirement is to use a different email address.
You can open a dashboard for each boat to run the automatic route planning in zezo.
