I won't try the virtual race, though I heard Mitch Des himself is entered, but keeping up with the real race will make my winter. It is a fantastic event with fantastic people.

Briar I'm wondering whether or not to have a life, or become PC-locked to the game :(

It will become your life!

I'm trying to get the vrtool running but at this stage I can't get the data to load so I'm sailing blind. Switching between websites trying to decide where to go


It could be worse for you at least it's winter up there.

LOL Dry Martini is in dry dock, and TangledTongueTwister is taste testing tequila.

Yes a fast cruise... and BTW, you need to understand the history of CA posters entering virtual offshore racing events, so please fuck off and catch up on the reading before coming back :D

WHL, sculpin, others, if you like, you can join us over in the Ocean Racing forum where we've had a thread going for a while now. Or not. Some helpful hints on occasion for noobs and no one complains about the topic. :rolleyes:

This stuff-a-car asshole sounds an awful lot like the late unlamented Squid. You remember Squid, Paps? This sad piece of shit works just the same way.

I can already see that happening. I'm too cheap to pony up for all the "auto" extras and am already thinking of leaving the laptop on my nightstand. gonna be moving through a major wind shift in about six hours!

think the wife will notice?

If only you knew. You really don't have a clue do you !
Don't bother coming back with your gross assumptions and bigoted crap.

There doesn't dseem to be much action happening!!

I have created a new group called

SAILING ANARCHY 2012 under the VR groups,
It looks like you can only have on administrator so you may have to wait for me to accept the membership requests
