Good morning.

Rankings from approx 00:30 UTC on 10 Nov.

I think top performance marks for today go to Sticky with a tacking angle of precisely 126°. At the moment it is a balancing act of maximising pressure and heading.

Let me know if I have missed anyone - (although I am fairly certain I haven't missed myself today!).  CapnK will be kicked off tomorrow unless he actually starts sailing as his DNS screws up my sorting.

I tried twice to create our team but it froze both times. I’ll post here when it works. Meanwhile, I’m cracking sheets a bit to hit the front in 24 hours. Pretty fun being ahead of the real boats as long as it lasts.

Hi TR - thanks for once again putting up the ranking (again, I don't know how you have the time)....

Last VOR, I was RIGO - but racing again this time as "Screaming_Eagle" - would appreciate an add to the ranking if you don't mind!

Fair winds all,

RIGO...

What's the sched for weather updates on the game? 
03:30, 09:30, 15:30, 21:30  GMT

I'm on full set, bought with credits, for this race and therefore "only" limited in the number of programming instructions or waypoints. Little sad that they changed that lately since i still have accumulated  over 48000 credits over the years.

Thanks for compiling the ranking @Tunnel Rat

What are the best sheeting angles for upwind (with foils)?
Be careful this is somewhere you can spend an unhealthy amount of time.

BTW - the game seems to have crashed finally.  First time for me in quite a long time.  I can't get in on the website or through the App.  Hopefully the course adjustments I made earlier seem to make sense and don't bite me in the arse!

I am on the basic.

I forgot from last time, but what is the typical optimum TWA to change from Jib to spi?

Also in the basic can you automate the change in the Expert settings 

 
Want a job? Speak French? The game is looking for a “partner” to translate the daily news letter to English.
