FD & SD..nice job digging south..I could not get there...I have been trying to get around the high that the real boats have been stuck in and I am diving hard now while I can.

Aaarrgh, kickin' meself for waffling and heading north in the end. Great boat speed by the fleet in the south.

HB, you are doing well to be cozying up in my stern wake with your "Corinthian" sails. Viktor is also looking good. The numbers are a bit deceiving with a huge concentration of boats in a small area.

Aaaaarrrrgh , kickin' myself for not laying down a waypoint during the night to pass north of the ice gate. I had the TangledTonguester sailing to it's polars to try and gain some ground, and the optimal angle was a little low of the mark. I overslept my course change by 30 miles and sailed past the mark.. That has cost the TangledTonguester a few thousand places, 60 miles and now in less breeze being in the wake of the system that's moved East.

Thanks dude. I'm clawing to stay in this system. Just on the back-end of it. The guys in the thick of it are absolutely screaming...and will be for several days. Richer and richer.

Hung - I'm hurtin' for you brother. That was a bummer of a u-turn.

Tell me about it, I would be on the other side of it if it wassn't for a bad sail choice while I was at work.
I might be able to bust threw it today, but then the next forcast will put me back to square one.

Finally me & FD & whoever the hell the "cigar syndicate" is are moving along nicely. Up until today (yesterday for FD) it was pretty painful..I was tired of going upwind around the ice gates at 48S latitude.

SD, nice leg indeed..I am feeling a little like Telefonica chasing down Puma (Naughty Lass) right now, but I have committed to inshore so the scenario is backwards. Lost a shit-ton of boats at Cape Horn when I apparently grounded on a sliver of land and then again yesterday in poor conditions, and have just gained back to where I was at the first ice gate when I missed the front you all carried.. :)

It is a struggle with no candy bar usage and two sails. Press on, bitches!

In the real race - GO PUMA!

If ya come a little bit closer HB, I'll toss you some candy bars. :P You'e doing awesome with what you have. It's quite possible you'll beat me, unless I find someone to finish my boat for me today while I leave in an hour to take off for a race.

Besides, I am learned from me mateys in CA ... learning things like weather routing from WHL, fancy schmancy words such as lascivious from Ishmael, and the like. Sculpin is giving me a battle worthy of the best. HB, let's hoist a rum grog in Miami. B)

T'is some fine sailing yer doin' thar, young sculpin. Best be watching yer stern young 'un, as the Lass won't give up easily without a hearty fight. Mayhaps it's time to put the rum away and haul out the cat o'nine tails and liven me crew up again.

Rustling up a wee breakfast fer me first mate

OK, so are any of you in this race game under the name "Victoria"??? I keep getting messages and friend requests from this person who seems to think that a Canadian following a more eastern route is an amazing thing... very odd... my "do I know you??" reply has gone unanswered.

The Lass must have really laid on the lash, her crew has her out in front of me again! She is downwind of me though, so I can't smell the bacon.

Although this is the VORG topic... I thought I'd post funny image. It's one of boat's track in the very light air Clipper event. I have set the AP to follow True Wind Angle.. and left it for about 4 days...LOL

Ah, the dreaded "follow wind" WTF???

Hmm... virtual aftershave? But the Naughty one is ahead of me, the lashings and bacon worked and her crew have moved her up the standings...

And who knows what a "victoria" is. Could be referring to the place...

There is the 'Lass in pink, and the blue boat in 5xx is the FunkMonkey.

WHL is away doing an offshore race, (currently in first place according to the tracker) with no access to internet service. Not suprising that one of his boats ran ashore. (I should have offered to help helm his pixel boats.)

T'was a hard thing for SV NL sail past the pristine snorkeling grounds of Turks and Caicos. Me think my boats will be moored there for the next leg, as too much sailing and golfing will keep me away from the game

Well, it isn't the same without the lass. Smackdaddy is kicking my butt, I should have gone north on day 1 but didn't. So it goes. But Hike, you better up your game - my 7 year old is ahead of you! :P (Wizard101 is his boat name). He has watched me playing this game and figured if I was spending so much time on it then it must be fun. Doesn't live up to his Nintendo tuned brain though.

Howdy goat, Nice to see you drop by. :ph34r: You've been a stranger for too long. Hope you enjoy a great season of racing up in your part of the world.

Sculpin, I miss the CA camaraderie, but simply don't have time to cause any mischief in the Virtual seas. It's very cool to have the chat feature this time around to say hi to folks across thousands of miles. Good luck sculpin, and hope you show smackdaddy a thing or two. :P

Yah, I saw the friend request pop up, if he utters the phrase Hike Bitches in front of his mom you will have some 'splainin to do! :ph34r:

Smackdaddy is schooling me on this leg! Should'a gone north early. Ah well. Now that the real boat is back in the water it's hard to get too depressed about it.

Could be worse, HikeBitches is getting whupped by my 7 year old. And for the record, he is not sailing with any credits, as much as he complains that he needs them. A bare "corinthian" entry.

The interesting thing is that he has taken an interest in our sail inventory - keeps asking why we don't have a code zero. Not that he knows what a code zero is, or what you do with it, but it sounds cool. I'm pretty sure if I asked him if he is sailing to his polars that he would think I'm talking about albino bears...

yeah...a tornado blew thru Hampton Yacht Club on Friday while we were down there for Southern Bay Race Week. No injuries, some damage to the building, but I was impressed by the volunteerism & the city resources in Hampton & what they had accomplished by the time we left late Saturday afternoon.

Smack, No..the tornado came thru about 2030 hours, local..we were all partying in the tent. The tent blocked anyone's view from the impending tornado. Someone else was paying attention and got everyone inside to safety in time. A google search on "Hampton tornado" shows plenty of coverage. A local seafood processor (Amory's) took a big hit too. We were technically visitors at this regatta, but this was only a 3 hour drive from home...Hampton is (very) roughly at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.

Had people been in the outside there would have been carnage from debris & other flying stuff. The tent we were all dancing and listening to the bank in was thrown down the street..Unfortunately, most of the Optis and 420's were beat up (I assume insurance which I am sure HYC has will cover most of that), a bunch of car windows (including some of the yacht club building's windows right in front of me while we were trying to all jam into the hallway) were blown out, and any boat on shore on a trailer was beat up or destroyed in some way. A few boats in the water lost a furled headsail that got thrashed..I counted three dismastings, for the same reason..too much windage and some fitting must have failed and the mast buckled at the spreaders..they all had a furler.

There were no people injuries...which is pretty amazing. Thanks to whomever at HYC that forced all of us inside that were really oblivious.

Glad you guys were okay. I can just see Amory's cod and martini glasses raining from the sky all over Norfolk. Good times.

Bots OUT


After extensive technical investigation we have disqualified a number of players for using automated devices to sail their boats.

Using automated devices to manage the game is in clear breach of the rules. The names of the disqualified players are: Curroslow, voypaya and zaramzamzam.


Multi account boat players OUT


We are offering players an amnesty until the start of Leg 8 on 10th June to declare any additional boats that they have in the Top 1000 and the lowest-ranked boat or boats will be removed from the game. Any Top 1000 player found to have multiple accounts after this date is liable to have all of their accounts disqualified.

Okay, I've officially stopped giving a damn. I'm down to 100 credits and don't want to pony up more cash to get better sails so I can wake up at 1300 and make course changes.

I'm really liking my place at 44K - checking in every couple of days when I wake up from my drunken stupor.
