Thank you Paradise !
I was plenty of doubt and almost certain I will not pass well by the South route, ….
However, with high latitudes, the distances were favourables to me !

See you on Monday Laughing Laughing

Edit : Thanks Highnoon ! Very Happy

I thought , why do all of you go so far North , while the XM is more to the west.

now I understand there is a huge wind shift coming. ok adjusted course hope not too late

ANNOUNCEMENT: ALTERNATIVE FRIDAY RACE (AFR)


Again a REAL FR as AFR Very Happy Wink
we will use this FR for our next AFR FR-S20-02 Papua Bay

Alternative Sailing Race with , 2 Xtra Marks .Very Happy,

START: Monday 1st April 2019, 1200 GMT sharp; no it is not a Joke Wink Very Happy

RACE: We will use FR-S20-02



Sailing in waters with many shallows and tiny islands is a challenge in itself, but I have added two more challenging marks to pass by Very Happy



- From the Start sail to the 1e Xtra Mark , XM#1 and pass this keeping the XM on your Port side
coord: N00°10'00" - E137°04'00"

-Sail to the other side of the island and pass the XM#2 while keeping the mark on your Port-side
coord: N00°12'00" - E136°48'00"

-Sail to LS gate#2 and validate

BTW, you are allowed to change the sequence with LS gate#2, first the XM;s and then the LS gate, or first the LS gate and then the XM's, so much freedom to choose your fastest route Rolling Eyes Wink

- Validate the AFR and LS Finish ;


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.
