Board » Technical Support » Cross up in Lisboa Timed race Aug 16, 2017

My boat, brewman, has rounded all marks today in the Lisboa timed race, but only the Vasco de Gama Bridge & Barrerio marks show "Rounded". The boat track clearly goes around Bugio Lighthouse, yet it does not say "Rounded"> All other marks beyond have same issue.
How can this be?
What Can be done?
Thanks, Bruce Flournoy
Hi Bruce, unfortunately until a mark says rounded, then passing subsequent marks will fail (they won't show as rounded)and, ultimately, crossing the finish line will be impossible. In a Timed event, without finishing a run, you can't begin again.

In this rare situation, in order for you to re-register to run again as you have continued far down course, all we can do is to eliminate the failed run and let you 're-register.

I will be doing this for you after finishing this forum post.

The reality of what you did is, as Smo said in race chat, by rounding initially the wrong way and not reversing to back-track and then correctly rounding the right way (which would have been indicated by the mark label showing "rounded") the rest of your track after that point is irrelevant in the server.

In order to round successfully, after passing a mark on the wrong side, you have to imagine that your track is like a ball of yarn or a piece of rope and as you go back you are gathering it up - this requires you to reverse course. Then when you get to the point before the mark you you can round correctly and continue on course.

I'll now go and "housekeep" your boat!

Hope that is all OK.

A year or more ago, I said that the DCs were failing. I want to thank the one who mentioned my intake of alcohol. And although I talked to you about the chat, my warning was not recognized. I hope this issue is solved, just ruined another regatta a DC.
Greetings to all.

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
