    Hopefully it was the kick in the bud which they needed for parts of the international community to free themselves from the "World police" and create own, stronger and reliable alliances. Otherwise the whole shebang only strenthend China and Russia. BTT: Saw a map yesterday with water levels of rivers and it confirmed the mean threat of this hurricane regardless which Cat it had before/during landfall. The rise of the water level in rivers was dramatic.

    Comment by Weatherchannel regarding fake weather man video: ROTFL, they manage to make it even worse which is hard to do.

    The insert "livecam highlights" would suggest old stuff and sunshine doesn't really match 10:30 am. I would say: not back on.

    What is the over under for that pavilion and the pier?

    Indeed. And even so if it looses peak strength there is still a lot of the Cat4/5 energy in there due to the size and "time over target". Hope everyone i the area stays save.

    No doubt there are scenarios where this can happen. First of all the track is mostly for the eye only. If the speed of the storm near the coast slows fast and the strength weakens the influence of other weather systems around grows. In abstract view: So you have two factors (storm/around) going in opposite direction thus doubling effect. I know the that all of it is more complex and thus the prediction days ahead is so hard.

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Unfortunately VR already cheated you out of checking any overall rankings with their idea to have leg 11 as a standalone leg and not announcing that fact. You could have checked the overall rankings after 10 legs when leg 10 closed and before it disappeared. Now you are left with the hope for a time travel machine to go back in time. I guess that is called customer binding to a brand in modern marketing. @Your Mom had an rather interesting (and sadly quite probably true) explaination in the Zezo forum for the standalone leg 11: The prize for the overall winner of the VVOR was a trip to the finish of leg 11 in Scheveningen. I think you get the drift of the implications that such a winning prize presents

    VOR Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague

    Well, they were able to move the mark South of Norway quite quickly. And frankly any halfway decent tracker software should allow quick entry or removal of waypoints via an UI. Especially since there is staff in place in Alicante 24/7. (Work in IT as well )

    If the heavy reaching conditions are still there once the fleet reaches that area. The forecast is for wind to decrease on the west side of Denmark. Regarding lead change: looks like DF tacked a little too late.

    The countdown for the race on the tile and in the leg on the left side shows the correct time for me (~1h 20m from now). There is a countdown with an extra day but it is for the discount on the full pack purchase.

    You can check your elapsed time by clicking on your boat and then twice on the left arrow in the then displayed information tile on the left side.

    Atlantic record: Even with the zig zags at the beginning no chance for the pink boat. I think my time will be around 4 days 3 hours. And there are even better boats like @Your Mom on their current attempt.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    You heard correct but it was more figure of speech to highlight the stress of the upcoming week. Thanks @stief for clearifing the times.
