    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Well, I see my boat made it to the finish on autopilot. I think the only time I managed to log on I actually tacked by mistake whilst setting my next 9 waypoints, so another costly mistake! 1989th 678.4Nm 1d 16h 53m 43s Thanks to all the scorekeepers and the wonderful competitors. The standard of racing from the SA team was incredible this year, so many people achieving personal best and really high placed rankings. Well done all. I think I will be having a big break from VR. I will do the Sydney to Hobart if they have it again, not sure I will be on before that. I reckon I will do the next planet lap race, whatever it may be, unless its a clipper race because those things are too frickin slow! Hope to see you all back if there is another VOR! Have fun all!

    In game countdown is 1 day slow? I think race starts in 9 or so hours doesn't it?. In game countdown timer says 1 day 9 hours. I am stuffed for this race, have to be asleep for start due to drive early next morning, then out of range for some of next day.

    Well done everyone. I ran aground 5 hours out from finish. There is no doubt in my mind that something goes wrong with waypoints when you are using the last one. I didnt touch anything and i still went on the rocks. Route clearly passed headland. The boat doesnt go right direction if the waypoint ends shortly ahead of you and just past the danger point i reckon

    Not sure really, at some point in time, sailing the shortest distance has to pay off! But really, i 'm just keeping to the strongest breeze at the moment, hopefully this lane of wind doesnt close out on me.... Gybe turkey has comprehensively outsailed me to here, I think a few of my sleeping hours were at sub-optimum beating angle.

    Well that was a disastrous last day for me. Could never find a way back after deciding not to run the northern edge of the channel as planned and ending up stuck in the south.. Well played everyone and once again, huge thanks to the scorekeepers!

    Wow, getting to the finish at Cardiff looks to be a real nightmare from this range out

    Milli, I have never not rounded a bouy by being too close. I have cut some pretty fine, it is harder now with the boat size and waypoints being too big than it used to be a few years ago, so I convinced you cant get too close anymore. Maybe something else went wrong? If you think your white line is going round a mark whilst using waypoints, I am sure it will. Did you have a TWA course which somehow ended up wrong side of the mark after a wind shift?

    Mental note... Turn off TWA.

    Been a good break. Looking forward to a nice run across the North Atlantic with no doldrums!
