START: Monday 11 March 2019, 1200 GMT sharp

RACE: We will use MR-S06-04

Fair winds Smile





Notes:
- make sure to validate all Gates and the Finish in the official LiveSkipper FR on top of that the Gates and Marks of the AFR extra challenges.
- for newbies: make sure we, the ASailors, do know you are participating, best in this topic.
- we as Alternative Sailors will only sail the passionate way, so Passion category Boats are accepted only
-the image with coordinates, yellow lines/arrows are a guidance only, the typed coordinates under the image establish the exact location of marks and gates.
-tiny islands alongside large island are not considered to be part of the big island; you may sail in between unless specifically described not to.
-pixel jumping is allowed, it is even appreciated with a bonus of 10 minutes upon announcing or proof of the pixel-jump. Rolling Eyes You have to claim it yourself Exclamation
- dipping of an Extra Gate, or 'touch and go' of an Extra Gate, is allowed, provided you pass the gate-line; dipping of an Extra Mark is NOT allowed.
-take care for a starting time not ahead of the starting shot, for auto-start in on-going races see the wiki or tutorial.

Morning

Yes, I am a little too far East to my liking, but as You I try to sail west of the wind system. it will be a lot harder though, less miles to sail but also less boatspeed, I fear

The problem with high pressures, they are unpredictable. Already it appears less severe than it did 2 days ago... so maybe the wind gods will favour you.

so far the damage on the distance to finish is still small,
but on the map I can feel that other boats might have better boat speed and will pass me.

sail on , tomorro this time we will know, or a little earlier Smile
