    Sounds just like the last Pittwater 2 Paradise when you put it like that

    Regatta, ocean, club & delivery sails...

    We and most of the club boats we race switch out to delivery sails as far as I know. Our main is an old pin top Dacron criuser sail that effectively has the first reef already in it by being a few feet short on the Luff and foot. Means we do not need to worry about runners all delivery. Nor reefing unless it gets very sporty. We will also usually truck in the old A3 for any kite work and our oldest Med/Heavy which would be paired with a storm jib for headsail options but we don't like to deliver upwind if we can help it.

    VR Transat Jacques Vabre

    Hard to tell as I am only following a couple of boats in the east, but it does look like in the VR IMOCA 60's the east group are a few hours in front right now.

    I might dust off the virtual sailing gear for this one

    4G options for east coast racing

    Cellfi go from Powertec is a telco approved solution as far as I know. It's an all in one SIgnal booster and repeater. Bit pricey at a little over a boat buck, but am told they have an option for both Telstra and Optus now. I am looking at one myself to replace the sim/WiFi modem option we have so I cannot speak from experience yet but am told by a reliable source they are good gear.

    ahh the joy of VR sailing when you wake up and see 41st but flashing red "Wrong sail configuration" i must have been going ok as we converged around tasman island, alas all gone to custard as I forgot to turn auto sails on while sleeping to tighten up and get around the corner. Apparently sailing upwind with the zero doesn''t work so well.

    Great race, I'm enjoying the battle back and forth between Chutzpah and Showtime in the fast 40's. Both are doing well trying to hang on to the back of the 50's

    Pinkbits-Aus is looking like being the leader or close too it when we head back toward the rhumbline. I like where Stufishing is too that could work out alright depending on the next weather update.

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Well my results are reflecting my ramp up at work 1300th 7d 22hr, 35m 42s distance sailed 2969.6 nm Congrats to the winners and again many thanks to the scorers that keep the competition relevant across all the people participating in this thread. Like Stu I thought I had picked a winner up high crossing the ridge but ended up in slightly less breeze which offset the better angle I had coming back down to the pack. ThenI ended up in no mans land in the channel. Ahh well there is always the next leg!

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Talk about digging yourself out of a big hole @Your Mom, I am paying the price for staying high and straight lining out of the overnight (for me start) and then not optimising a couple of overnight tacks, so I was too high, and now I am too east So if you are in a hole I have fallen into a crevasse, but plenty of race to go
