Hello,

Here are rankings from approx 09:00UTC.  Shockwave, Jesus and BillE seem to have pissed off the man with the tape measure.  So I'm putting in distance to leader and O/A placings.  Maybe some of it will make sense.....

Thanks to TR for again keeping the rankings for us.

Anyone else had issues with programming using the website?

The one i put in for jibe south occurred 1 hour later than programmed time!  e.g. set for 13:00, actually happened at wall clock time of 14:00! 

Lost a little time to what had been the chasing pack, tho' have been sailing faster angles to try catch up.

Yes. Its amazing how much one little mistake can cost you. Sometimes its a good thing especially if its not your fault. Once you get over your anger at VR, you can tune out for the rest of the race!

Overslept by 3 hours this morning, game plan out the window, dropped a few thousand places.

Still, I'll always have my screenshot of fame! :) LoL

Rankings are rather late today, due to the inconvenience of work....

As before the DTL is rather screwed up so I am including the OA placings and sorting on that.

Talking to the missus after dinner and not noticing that I should have changed to the Code 0 cost me some miles, ho hum - worth it!

Quick update on the rankings from approx 09:00UTC.

The same caveats on inconsistencies between DTL and OA placings apply.

301 at one stage, now 16400!  

Normal standard of racing for me then.  :lol:

12 hour time difference and Christmas drinking don’t help either.

Yes, thanks again Tunnel now wake up and turn your boat
Err, thanks for the advice, I've just got back from avoiding my son's 18th birthday party, and now I'm hiding upstairs trying not to be a killjoy.......

But even more annoying than the crap music is that I can't get into the VR site!

Has anyone witnessed that inconsistency before? I’m clearly not 496 miles behind the leader. Hell... the pack is less than 30 mins in front of me. Also, I can’t seem to find anyplace that says I’m that far behind. Where are you getting that info from? Thanks again, TR!

A little upthread TR and i mentioned noticing the same for shockwave11. Clearly the distance is wrong for several sailors.

VR has a strange way to calculate distance/ranking (shortest distance to rhumbline and then following the rhumbline AFAIK) but this is not the problem here. It only makes overview in race like RdR with N and S options harder.
