I noticed that during the race ranking is measured using Pitagoras from the boat thru the next gate (or end point). It then gives a false idea of position. It happens that this means that ships can sail over a whole continent. Instead, it should be measured using the shortest navigated way to reach the next gate.

I understand your point Misterix, and I wish the same, but the best possible Navigational route is all dependent on wind patterns, impossible to predict... It is the lesser of 2 mad dogs...

Not convinced. Ranking should depend only on present boat position and on distance to reach next milestone thru a possible navigation route. Wind has nothing to do in this matter.
Bye.

Just take the ranking as is and just remember that "the closer you come to the Gate line or Finish line , the more accurate the ranking is"
