BTW are there any updates to the following positions, if not I will take these placings as the final ones for Leg 1 to feed into an overall score.  Or can someone point me to where VR are hiding the results for Leg 1.

Cheers, TR

Sorry mate, VR in their infinite wisdom have restricted the number of friends to 25, so I can't add extra people, hopefully    mkgsailor will be along later to do a second listing of all those that I can't sort out.

Have fun!
Added to my list. I’ll shoot for an update on my group today at 0:00 UTC. Currently at Disney with the family so online sailboat racing isn’t exactly my wife’s idea of good use of my time.

Worth noting that ZEZO can forget your previously checked Foils and Extra Pack (hadn't cleared cookies etc). 

This had quite an impact on the 24 hr plan so glad I noticed...

Anyone else farming cards for credits in the other games? I've been doing it but intentionally going slow/running aground/sailing to Newport so when the race ends or I finish I can convert the cards to credits. Does anyone know if there is a factor or something that decreases the value of the cards the longer you are out there?

I'm currently top 10 in the UK. Happy enough with that, but I'm coming after the frogs...

Yes, though I wouldn't say I'm intentionally going slow. I'm just not really paying attention to the other races...just grabbing all my cards from each race at the same time.

Good morning boys and girls.  Here are the 01:00UTC placings.  In spite of Mr Bitches modesty, he is still firmly in first place.  The rest of the field is all change so I have added an extra column showing change in placings compared to yesterday's sched.

Zezo is rather lacking in confidence whether hugging Africa or going west is the correct option, but recently seems to be slightly favouring the western option.

Surprised it appears the majority of folk are going down the African coast.  Thought west would be more appealing.  

Then again Mom has joined us folk out west so maybe we will get more company soon.  ;)

Doesn't look good in the standings being out west - doubt Mom has ever seen such a big number  :lol:

 
I’ve got screen shots from the B group leaderboard from 0:00 UTC. Out with the wife on last night of vacation, so I’ll post them later. Also have HikeBitches in my list, so the combined groups will be easy to sort out.

I have no idea how that happened again, TunnelRat!  :ph34r:

As for the race, I am conflicted..I don't like the coast, but I also don't know if it is worth the extra distance to go too far west.  I'll probably end up playing the middle which is always a lose-lose. :rolleyes:

You'll get 5 credits per card when you finish (remember to click the "get" button after finishing), so it takes a ton of farming to be worthwhile.  You'll also get a finish bonus that depends on how well you finish (so click two different "get" buttons).

But...  you need to finish before they close the race.  If they close it while you're still at sea, you'll get nada.  And they haven't been announcing the closure date.  So don't kill yourself farming cards and then lose your crop by failing to finish at all.

I've seen some huge numbers.  In the last VOR, I went to Antarctica in on of the southern ocean legs, and I was further from the finish a week into it than when I started...  but...  that wound up being my first ever top 50 finish.  No need to worry about rankings before the final approach.

Regarding the routings...  it all depends on where you're routing to.  I'm currently routing to the middle of the South Atlantic, not Cape Town.  I don't want to spend the last week of this race going upwind.

 
Here's the B group rankings. I also have some of the A group in here, which should help compare the two lists until we merge them.

Really hope the west I'm putting in pays off because an 18 place leaderboard drop is impressive!
