thanks a lot, very good information Very Happy , be it that due to a late start, Suratna is last in the fleet. Rolling Eyes but on the chase Exclamation

the remark of Hallberg, refers to a "bug".
it has been forever that you cannot start on staysail.

way around is to start the first 10 min on the 'best but one' sail and make a mark at 10 min to change to Staysail.

fair winds.

That's a very strange bug as, as far as I can tell, within the game engine, the sails are referred to by numbers (1 to 5), staysail is number 1 but for another boat, 1 could be the jib. So why, I wonder, would the no 1 sail fail to start if its name is staysail and not if it is jib? Never mind, I still like the game, I'll try to remember this bug.

TTR AZCF just started the race! Late start by almost a week but I'll add him to the ranking at the next update. At the other end, the competition is becoming fierce between the first 5 EF boats.

Hallberg seems to have dropped anchor just before gate 2. Either that or he's got the wrong sail up. Is he waiting for daylight before crossing over?

Question Question Question Rolling Eyes

I hope the god will have mercy and increase the wind strength just a bit till gate #4.
On contrary will have to wait for 9 m 30 sec on southern tip of the gate.
Worked hard to gain one min here one there for last several days and all that work vanished for bad luck.

And the latest grib is making me lose 10 minutes at Gate 5. Bugger!

I'm curious to see if Vanna will round first or if jimbeam will keep the lead. It's gonna be close!!! Laughing

I don't know if it is good for my health,that I sleep so well and deep,that I don't hear my alarm clock and woke up 3 hours later.
Of course as there were islands and two gates to cross I run aground,fell from 5th to 13th position. Evil or Very Mad
However I slept really well and found my other boat in Chile regata on 1st position per pure case as I run out of the marks for zig-zaging on stronger winds.The option now is to stay in slower winds and better angle.
