    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Tracker crystal ball says 2018.06.14 20:39:12 UTC but the routing stops before the last bit to enter Gothenburg

    DF passed TTOP, la remontada on its way ?

    That's it, DF now 5th, the ambiance on the boat ...

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    was thinking they might have broke a sail or something, but looking at the speeds in pro mode, you don't see any significant point on this north sea crossing

    DF now passed by Akzo, and about to get passed by TTOP if not Vestas, DF slowest of them all,wtf ?

    why "near disaster" ? A bit of click whoring more than anything else there

    DF at 147 right now. By the way it seems to me the forecast has changed quite a bit since yesterday for the North Sea part (independantly of the tracker bug), much less "purple" than yesterday.

    Anybody knows what is the optimum wind angle they sail on a dead down wind course/tack ? The routing thingy has them do a little gybe, DF at 140 TWA, MF at 136 right now.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    yes a bit of a strange gybe, even though MF TWS is higher than DF and Brunel right now, also a bit tough to tell whether they crossed in front or behind DF (especially on a phone), which is which ?

    The south pack now have reached a bit more breeze than the north one, go DF go !

    Thanks for the vid ! First time the new foils of Gitana are visible to my knowledge, and they clearly have changed : the end point doesn't go back down as previously

    Holly sh... Perfect equality situation for the first three right now at overall .. (except for overall time point for DF I guess)

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    I guess it's to avoid a TSS for cargo ships

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Indeed, and these "historical" clips intertwined in the middle of everything are really a pain. They could have plenty of people to interview, present the weather forecasts, routing, news about the next format, etc, and bring Conrad at these starts !

    Not sure, was watching Nadal butchering the poor Thiem, but indeed impressive that they managed to get behind even TTOP ..

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Why this delay ? Tide ? wind ?
