VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

Recommended Posts

I'm with KLM and Shockwave rounding Bali at the moment. Now it's a bit of a head-scratcher from this point forward. Under no illusion that we'll hold on to the lead for too long, but it was fun while it lasted. With that depression forming off of Singapore, I like Thistle's position!

Should be an interesting 24hrs for the eastern most group.  I'm a few hours on the heels of Mom and his pack.  Pressure and angle are filling in.

Shhh I'm on stealth mode...

The heavy air beat to the finish from where I am may ultimately do me in, but it will be fun for a while!

Your route is the route I was aiming for at first, and then as things looked rather grim for all of us West of Australia a few days ago, I figured I'd go straight up for short term glory and a scenic view of Bali! Now you've got a real chance! If Lady Luck doesn't swing things back our way, then I'm rooting for you :P

Friendly reminder for those using Zezo...  when you cross the equator, don't forget to change your latitude from S to N.

Ouch.... almost DFL ......... CaptainSENer must be a heck of a guy, we’ve never spoke, but misery loves company. 

That said, since we are still in the Southern Hemisphere.... maybe you read the leader boards from the bottom up?  Toilets flush backwards so it’s worth a try 

This might not turn out too badly for you. You’re already starting to see better pressure and once you make the turn in a few hours, I think you’ll start climbing the leaderboard.

After careful consideration we've decided to take Zorro off the evening helm shift.

His shenanigans proved costly last night.

Reminder to self: Double-check course and close VR app before sliding device into pocket.

When I set a zezo course from the Sunda Strait (my guess where Thistle is) I can’t get a course to HK, wtf!

Also make sure you have checked Hong Kong as your destination under “menu” (or right click if using a computer).

Hello,

I have a bit of spare time this morning, so I ran Zezo routings for a few boats to find out the predicted arrival times.  For You Mom it was 149hrs, for shockwave11 it was 174hrs, for me it was 140hrs and for Magool it was also 140hrs.  My finish time has dropped by 29hrs since 12hrs ago, so that gives some indication as to how consistent and accurate these predictions are.  Anyway, here are the 01:00UTC rankings, I believe @mkgsailor will be along shortly with the complete list.

It looks to me that any of the several groups to my West  who remained East of the Bismarck Archipelago are neck and neck to win. The Eastern group I'm in has travelled too far without any wind from a decent angle and will need major luck to get home from here in any sort of decent position. Someone like MarcusBelgicus looking very strong. Its a pity because we looked really good a few days back out here. My tip is Breitling or prowler_1 to take out the SA leg leaderboard

You guys are looking very strong indeed! But remember, the 'Bali group' was first to hit the 2,000nm DTF mark! Which, of course, counts for absolutely nothing - unless we start accruing points for a polka dot jersey, like they do in the Tour de France at each mountain pass along the way! :P

Well, Captain Sheep is dropping in behind me, so I guess we've at least established that the easternmost group isn't going to beat the second-most easterly.

 

At least my ranking is dropping now and I have double digit windspeed and boatspeed.  :-)

Judging by the progress and drone vids, I bet the real boats wish they had a 4 knot minimum windspeed.:huh:

TR & MKG, thanks again for taking the time to keep all that straight for us. Interesting here several days later we all thought Shockwave & Thistle might be up front for a bit going west! Let's see how it goes!

As usual..I am kinda middling. I can't quite get to the more east guys that are getting into the trades presently (even though they are technically behind me in the latest sked)...I think I will be 24-36 hours behind them as things develop.

I'm pretty sure the latest forecast update just killed the East group.  The middle pack is now likely to gain leverage we can't overcome within the next day.

Going by their DTF I wouldn’t rule out the far west group, it would seem that their ration of 4kt wind has got a lot smaller of late.

Agreed, there is a small area of 4.0kts off the east coast of Sabah, then from the south of Palawan shockwave11 may be able to lay HK slightly cracked off.  It doesn't look like going N of Palawan would pay (although he would get very close to El Nido which is an incredibly beautiful place.  I got dropped off on the beach by a Tayana 55 in 1996 after doing a China Sea Race, and went solo backpacking through Palawan, fantastic trip.)

So I did a calc’ from SKOVSER to the following contenders using DTF, SKOVSER was at 1658nm, Iona29 at 2276 (618 behind), Tessa94 at 2511 (854 behind), and Magool at 2617 (959 behind). Atm the leader is still doing 20 plus knts while all the others are still in single figures. It’s going close!

That's probably what I'm enjoying the most on this leg: passing by some rock in the middle of nowhere, wondering what the heck it is and spending 1/2 hour google mapping the place and looking at all the pictures! Who said armchair traveling was lame! I'm a happy laptop tourist - to a fault, actually. I crashed into one of the Kangean Islands today, North of Bali, while I was happily reading reviews of the place! <facepalm> Now I'm typing 'El Nido' in Palawan and going 'ooh, aah'...

yes you were very lucky you spotted your island mounting so quickly. Each forecast can still be a variance of 20 hrs to the finish for us but its looking about 150 hrs to go atm.

I have a rough list of lead boats from each of the various routing options, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finish order of these boats.  Here they are, from West to East:

Aspiln
SKOVSER
momcilo
iona29
LJadra
Tessa
Pinkbits
Toppen (or me, I'm not sure because he's in stealth)
Captain Sheep

Groups are starting to consolidate.  Captain Sheep is dropping into line behind Toppen's group, and LJadra is dropping into line behind Tessa's group.  So soon, we'll be down from 9 groups to 7.

I think Tessa's group is going to win, possibly by a lot.  I'm hoping Toppen and I can be next, and that there won't be too many in Tessa's group.  It looks like the door is closing a bit behind Tessa, so some of that group may straggle off the back.

Agree, Tessa94  has been looking pretty better and better over the last 24 hours and going to be very hard to catch, allthough a long way to go still. 

I think Breitling & KaptnKirk(Prowler) and I are the 10th group on your list Mom, or are the lead boats for Pinkbits route  albeit a little further westNW now.

Whilst the last 2 forecasts haven't been particularly kind, I am holding out hope for a bit of extra pressure filling in from the east in the next one to catch up or get over the top of Tessa somehow.:D

This gives me hope, I am about 12Nm west of LJadra.

 

But which Tessa do you mean?  The search function gives two Tessa's; one from Spain who is not participating and one from France who is Bougainville.

Damn, Breitling...  I hadn't seen your position.  Probably better to list you as the leader of the group I tagged as Pinkbits' (unless you know of someone ahead of you).  You're in a great spot.  Well done.  I was thinking we'd declare the Pinkbits group absorbed soon, but you're way ahead of him and might still have a shot at the front.

Revised list, West-to-East:

Aspiln
SKOVSER
momcilo
iona29
LJadra absorbed by Tessa
Tessa
Breitling
Toppen
Captain Sheep absorbed by Toppen

Thanks Mom, we are a small three members SA group in this order:  Magool, Breitling_SA and prowler_1-SA. So Magool is the leader. We've been systematically sailing west of Zezo's suggestions which wanted to guide us behind your group. We diverged from you a bit before Brisbane latitude.

It's going to be really interesting to see who starts popping into the top 50 from where once the group finally gets close enough to HK for the folks East of PNG to be up there.  I suspect there are Easties ahead of me and Toppen, possibly by 10 miles or more.  Who knows who else might be out in front of Magool or Tessa.

I skipped Legs 1 and 2 but did Leg 3.  In the middle front of the middle pack sitting 448th overall so far after pooching the middle/end of Leg 3.  I think XC Race is going to win this one unless the Spaniards way west can pull it out.  I will be happy with a finish in the top 200 once we pass the middle west boats in the next 12 hours.  Haven't mastered the Zezo stuff but in the 1.75 legs I've done plus the S-H, Your Mom is one heck of a virtual sailor.  Saw the World Sailing Show on YouTube last night and they said there would be a live in-person virtual sailing world championship in the coming months.  That should be interesting.

There is also a closed Facebook group of Virtual Sailors for those who want to hang out in there - FNG148 (Jim Sears) organizes that, but there are some other pretty good real-life sailors playing in there (Geoff Becker and others).

There are a few virtual sailor groups on FB. Which one is it?

I couldn’t help but laugh when I read FNG. On our boat, that refers to the “fucking new guy”. You know, the one that puts the code zero up backwards.

That is in fact what it stands for.  Jimbo's boat is decorated accordingly, but he's better than a hacker.  His group is just called Virtual Sailors.  I am pretty new to this overall...I'm sure in retrospect there are many.  His is for smacktalk with friends who are playing.  Now up to 437th.

I convinced myself that was a one-off, and it would swing back to something more sensible with the next update! So I'm holding on to the previous routing - to disastrous effect, lol! Now I realize how frustrating it must have been navigating off a constantly changing 6-hour forecast for so many days out East!

Thanks!  I think the live thing will probably be their in-shore racing.  Totally different game, which I don't play much.  Fun...  but live-action video game style round-the-buoys racing that takes 7-10 minutes per race.

I think XC Race and Tessa94 are matchracing for it, and I'd give Tessa a slight edge at the moment.  I think they'll crack the Top 50 tomorrow, at which point we'll know if anyone is ahead of them in that group.

Our FNG totally owned the backwards C0 hoist, even though it wasn’t his fault. That’s what you get when a boat owner (of a different boat) finds himself on the bow.

Tessa94 is 51st and XC Race is 52nd and I'm pretty sure the top 50 are all West of PNG, so I think we know now that no one is ahead of them on the East side of PNG.

Not so many people in front of our group, I reckon about 150 - 170 boats. We can't catch them due to their better wind angle. Anyway we still have a chance crossing Luzon Strait at the best spot. North, south, middle...?

I hate autosails. Turned it on so I could change sails at 3am at a non problematic sail change and not have to wake up for it.

Forgot to turn it off when I woke up and Autosail merrily swapped between HG, LG and Code 0 a few times in quick succession at the same boat speed.

Cost me about 18 spots to Mom

Thanks for doing this! JeSa is my boat. But please add me RIGHT NOW because I'm with shockwave11 West of the Philippines, and our glorious time at the top of the overall standings is about to run out! :P

Done.  You'll be included in the next update.  I captured your position over an hour ago so it should be fairly accurate.
