      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

VOR 2014-15 Leg 4 Sanya-Auckland

2,038 posts in this topic

Trivia: The speed difference from front to back of the fleet at this point is less than 8/1000th of a knot.

Are you working that out to include total miles sailed, or distance to leader, currently the difference between SCA and Mapfre, using DTL, is .08knot for the whole leg thus far, for Brunel its .059knot, by comparison Abu speed difference is .0033knots...

The annoying thing for Brunel and SCA, once the final distance sailed has been released, is that they will probably be the fastest 2 boats for this leg....

How far extra have they sailed compared to the other 4, 100 / 200 miles???

MAPF first to gybe (using the reef as blocker?)

 

[Edit] Nope. Just a covering gybe

stief,

 

I still think Dongfengs Main Goal is still to pass ADOR and not Mapfre.

Agree--as I thought I said earlier.

 

Anyway, the three have now gybed.

hour and a half to sunset there; 22 miles to go, and wind still holding. Low tide in ~ 6 hrs, I think. Should be enough light for some good vids.

Well, Race Director Jack Lloyd said wind will be ok until 10 nm before the Finish and then die down completely.

Missed that one. Thanks

 

Alvi shooting between the islands? ADOR has inched up on MAPF; now 1.2 DTL

Whoa! What happened there? Wind gone south for MAPF; SW for ADOR; W for DF.

 

ADOR cut the DTL to 0,8. Leader on split gybes

Alvi still stuck in the transition to the new wind. It's not filling in as quickly as it did for the trio ahead,

Huh. Dashboard updated, and can't see the effect of the transition on Alvi's 15 minute stats. Good example of how not to rely on those averages!

 

Ooops--my mistake. The stats are for the 15 minutes before the 03:40 sked, so the effect would not be recorded.

 

Alvi now in the new breeze, and ADOR 0.9 DTL

I think Volodia has the graphics covered. Maybe VOR should just hire him.

Was wondering the same, I just looked at Marine tracker, and wonder if they are eating the header to tack across Murray Bay and pick up some local . . . advantage?

 

They've tacked now, so will see when ADOR and DF tack.

ADOR tacked on MAPF's line, so no drama there. Shows best on Marine tracker. Can also see some boats shadowing the leaders, and the tweets confirm the welcome.

Presume that ADOR will tack in front of DFRT so a bit of a procession if the wind holds.

As you said. Now all in line.

Best blogpost yet - Sam Greenfield is amazing, deserves all the kudos he'll get. Bloody amazing race, this.

 

So that's what happened to the drone! RIP.

 

Yes, that was a fine blog, and Sam has really provided some of the most interesting reading this leg.

...sorry to be picky but isn't there still a rule...yacht must finish with all personel and equipment it started with?

Think it has to do with the ability to light one boat up at a time.

Not really. The transition to the south wind happened within 5 minutes for the leaders, and about 15 for Alvi

Team on Mapfre has really come together in the last two. Xabi coming into his own, out of the shadow. The Iker factor will be a question.

Wow--still no ADOR -- OD unintended consequences. There's going to be some tough coverage reviews.

 

Glad the shore coverage had to scramble as much as the racers did.

 

I think the racers handled the changes better :)

MAPF's media management (in English at least) is such a joke. Shore manager attempted interview, and it didn't even work.

 

Wish the VOR budget went more to the tracker :)

There was a quick shot of the finish--I think Alicante was in a LiveX with MAPF. IIRC, there was a feed from Knut on the water and the helicopter in the air, and somehow the feeds didn't come through.

 

Oh--and hope you're recovering well. Cheers.

+1. Design faults affecting the placing. Not exactly what one expects in a one-design class.

Pity the Marine trafficc ais coverage is so slow down there. We can see Alvi and Brunel but updates 20+ minutes apart. A least that is better info than from VOR reporting.

Mostly standing and running rigging, no? At least no delamination.
