So am I missing something - Don;t we get to "build" our boats like before?

I just created my account, I doesn't appear that you have any options like that at least for the Beta version.

How am I going to spend a bunch of extra money to ensure I have a faster boat? Doesn't seem like realistic yacht racing to me ...

17 Hours and 59 minutes til race start and I don't have a boat, crew, better sails, or an App for my Android so I can tack and jibe while I'm driving down Lake Shore Drive at 70mph ... Seriously Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ?

It does seem to consume all your free time... I think in order to keep up front and stay off the rocks, you need team members in time zones 12hr different from you... need to set up a watch system and hand off control.

Both times I jumped hot, and then by 6 weks in to it, I was very burned out and quit...

Not a chance. That stupid race ate up far too much of my life the last time.

So it starts at 6am PST tomorrow morning. I may start, but cannot do much more tomorrow morning. I will be on as Dixie, and perhaps will have a D2 to try other courses, but not for the beta.

If I recall correctly, I moved boats for MSG and Sol when they couldn't, and vice versa the last time around. Will we see a GoTheCatherine boat this time around?

Team work is certainly key.

I'm guessing the beta is as much for the VORG guys as it is for us. I'm sure they've made tweaks that haven't been tested by the masses.

Friggen game looks to be a BIG money grab. At least its free for the beta. Got to store bought everything on the site. The hull thing COULD BE A PROBLEM for my fondness of skimming beaches.
Whats a VO 70 Beta bot boat hull go for these days? B)

I made it through the first four legs in 2008 before I stupidly also started a Vendee Globe virtual game and burned out on both. Wound up aground in Antarctica both times.

I'm back again this year and I'm looking forward to doing the race. The boat's name is "wbemus" and I I spent most of my 1000 credits on sails and auto angle/sail. We'll see how it goes!

Ive got the same, been doing 15 knots for 4 hours and havent got any closer to the finish and ranking hasnt changed.
AutoSail doesnt seem to work either, it keeps defaulting to medium spinnaker, no matter the conditions.

Also, I wonder if they plan to do support, Q&A, FAQ, etc over Facebook. Already chaos with just a few players online...

Evo, love you enthusiasm mate, but you may as well sail back to the harbour from there. Loved the question though mate about going east.

Despite my late start, have crawled back and am now within 6 miles of LH out to the East and looks like a good spot to be.

We'll see.

I got in 5 hours late. Lost 400 places today while I was out doing the real thing but I've clawed back 120 since I logged back in an hour ago. I've done all the easting I wanted to do in order to deal with this system and now I'm making a rush north along rhumb to try and get as far north as quick as possible. The forecast for 48 hours from now has a nice 200 mile wide wind hole we're going to have to cross and I want to make as much progress across it as possible to get to the new breeze first.

I started 24 hours later and am doing ok...a bit to the west and ahead of TA, which amazes me that the system pushed me along so well. I suppose I should use those free coins and get all the stuff beyond just sails and goodies for my crew. I would like to head east, but can't manage the comparable slowness. Is anyone using more than one boat for the beta?

Have fun fellas. Don't think I can make the time to get into it this time around. Was a bit easier when I was married but now I'm a man around town I seem to be busy doing other things but I know where to find y'all if the scratch gets too itchy B)

Was a lot of fun in 08.
