Play - Instructions - Take a look


In the footsteps of Sydney Cove, wrecked in 1797, which the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery revives 220 years later.

Two centuries that also separate the inauguration of the AC72 on LiveSkipper and this historic course.

Shitty winds in the Indian Ocean, I have trouble flying! On the other hand, even though we sailed different routes, I find myself side by side with my cobber Smiticks. How's it going André? Very Happy

I never liked Indian Ocean with it's unpredictable winds.
However I made mistake, as I forgot that this boats are much faster with stern winds 90-140.
Good low down south looked good in the beginning but now is moving E too fast to get it. The next low is much more south not reaching western tip of gate #1 but exactly the contrary producing center of high there.

Well you can probably see where i am heading for Damir. Although the winds have changed over the last day, that where i was once heading for 3 hours, the wind dropped in my target zone..Frank in Coromandel made the best effort ..
I think there were guys worse off, but at least we are flying now. ( for a while Wink )

We should be able to to reach the 50 knot barrier Glenn once we get close to the roaring forties and head east. Be sure to keep your Hard Hat on.

Glen,no one usually gives this information.I have tried many times.Suppose they think you would regulate your route if you have that information.All those using routers does not need your ETA as they could insert your position in their router and know exactly what is your ETA.That's why I am for 15 years contrary of using routers as regard that unfair sailing.That was especially valid for VORG,VR and Sailonline.Here on LS is a bit better as you have 10 waypoints on disposition but you could spend hour or two each time to find the best route while the router do it in two minutes.

Glen my ETA et present is 18:40 hrs on 3rd and dropping as my best ETA was 10:46 hrs on 3rd.
By the way I think you have a good chance to arrive there 1st as by making nice arc south to 44 deg. you would be sailing at times at 50 knts.

No, to be honest I did not really expect anyone to do that - I was being cheeky Wink
That is something I never thought of : To put another boats position into their router to obtain an eta !

It was difficult to find a reasonably accurate eta before I posted; due to the arc of my course, and many sail and course adjustments I wanted to make.
ETA is very roughly 12:00 on the 3rd..( it could be 1300).
I expect I will not be sailing at the angles to give 50 knots...more like 40 - 48.. which is good speed anyway Smile from 00:00 tonight , to the gate.
This is all presuming the stable stronger winds at my latitude remain as currently forecast.

Believe it will be quite close with Geo, Coromandel, naugladtou, JYPBC and others... but it depends on how successfully they negotiate the high.
Geo is the closest to myself..then maybe Frank . Depends on how he cuts accross my bow...and the high in front of him.
Geo is 2 hrs behind me ( or 50 miles) when we get to 40 knt speed, he will be just over the hour...so nothing in it really.
