    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    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.

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

    Especially the question to the skippers "how hard they will go in leg 11". For sure one of them is going to answer "we are going for leisure trip and not go full out".

    And maybe not even that if a boat out of the group Akzo, TtToP, Vestas or Scally wins the final leg and DF "simply" finishes best among the three.

    I guess changes from provisional to final ranking will happen a lot for this leg with the tight grouping at the finish. So it takes 10-15 minutes to get the final rank.

    That's the problem with manual steering and the difference in updates of the UI (1 minute) and the server (2 minutes). That always results in some back and forth jerking of the boat. Waypoints are the smother way if you can place them where you want to (which the UI didn't allow me just now).

    Good luck Edit: My waypoints could still be a disguise Edit2: Just tried to adjust the waypoints a little but now the waypoint just jumps further to the South. So i will steer manually.

    Looks like there is a new feature, at least in the PC version: When i zoom in my boat gets more and more transparent until finally only a target square remains. Very good new feature for steering close to land or buoys.

    It still looks the same to me as yesterday when i check it close up for the first time. Position changes +/- 60-70 by the minute for me currently. It is crazy how many boats are close together again.

    OBR on DF just said that they can't see Brunel and Mapfre on AIS. I thought the boat-to-boat AIS goes further than those roughly 5 nm ????
