    Vendee Globe 2020 - Virtual Race

    I have worked in consumer software for many years and the bugs and errors in this program are unacceptable. VR should not be taking on more races and adding to their infrastructure load if they cannot handle what is going on. Shame, but they have lost me, i have invested too much time to have crappy software execution F it up for me. I have put up with the app reloads and data missing, but I cannot tack through more than 190 degrees which makes it a little hard to progress... let alone having to babysit the thing. Good luck Mom, thx for the help, I’ll cheer you on from the sidelines!

    I am half a world behind you, but as my first try have been having fun and winning some beer bets along the way..(lost a few too but we forget them) Coming around the horn into a header, and cannot program for upwind? I have the full sail pack but not VIP. Customer service on the site does not exist. Might have something to do with the auto sail select and upwind sails?

    Newbie question... i have only been into this for a few weeks following beer bets :-) I cannot seem to program a course forward of the beam... Is this a known issue? Am I doing something wrong? I have seen this raised as a bug earlier (Nov) and will be mighty pissed if I cannot fix.

    Anyone having problems with the app?

    I agree that is overly optimistic. It was not a prediction, it was a statement about those he has passed. I am just impressed by the way Tripon has worked his way through the pack since his initial problems. Gaining on those ahead is going to be tougher than the ones he has already passed, but it seems to be a lot easier for L'Occitane than Charal. Certainly the L'Occitane design is a departure from the other foilers, and he seems to be able to hold very high averages. With the forecast he looks set to take more time over the coming days.. Like many others on this thread I want to see what L'Occitane can do in some sustained SO weather!

    ..he put 500miles into the ones behind him in 4 days!

    ..Not to mention he was 1,100 miles behind them at the equator. Fascinated by L’Occitane’s progress. I hope he manages to thread the needle with the weather along the top of the ice gate

    for the comments upthread re Boris "going dark" “Boris has had to switch off some of the onboard electronics like the dashboard data to save power as we lost both hydro generators in the night – this wasn’t from hitting something but just from the pressure surfing on a wave. No other damage and he will fix these with spares which we have on board in the coming days when the sea state is lighter – but just a heads up not to worry if you don’t see data coming off the boat :-)" https://www.borisherrmannracing.com/vendee-globe-2020-blog/day-26-0920-boris-lost-both-hydro-generators/

    this popped upon my you tube feed, not on the official site AFAIK. Sam is speaking French, but the damage is obvious. Game Over methinks.

    A lot of comments wondering how L'Occitane would go in the SO. Each time I see one of his videos I am amazed at the difference in motion. Might be his personality, but give the miles he has reeled off in the last few days he looks happy and super relaxed / rested.. a lot less stress on his face that the others. I am guessing we will see this design influence the future
