Go as planned
Actually the best start time to get us to the doldrums faster would be around 02:00~03:00 thur the 7th.
But I vote no more changes. Let's just race.

I always start late anyway, and always finish in the top 150-200, whatever everyone else wants I'm good with.
I hate work, it always gets in the way of having fun. LOL

Agreed... long race and a lot can happen. Conditions are the same for all... So... Let's get cracking on planned start time
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
I agree the systems will be what they will be and we should go as planned. Its a long race and in real sailing in general races start as advertised without being able to pick and chose the best weather. PR

As at now, the majority are in favour with staying with the current start time.

The stats are:

Current Start: 17
New Start: 2
Don't Mind: 2

I am now out until later this morning so, despite this majority, we will of course wait until the midday cut-off. That's fair isn't it?

Thank you all for your replies so far, this can help us for future races as well.

My personal thought is go as planned and if we like it we can always re-visit this one and set it up so we can have even more of a record run.
I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
Greetings to all, my opinion is that you should not change neither the hour nor the day of departure, ie would have to leave the day was planned from the beginning, as the race is long and winds conditions many days can vary widely as to the best and worse.

saludos a todos , mi opinion es que no se debe cambiar ni la hora ni el dia de la salida , es decir que habria que salir el dia que estaba previsto desde su origen, ya que la carrera es muy larga y las condiciones de vientos en tantos dias pueden ser muy variables tan to a mejor como a peor
Let's get going as scheduled. The weather on this one is going to even out the optimum starting time anyway due to the length of the race.
Start as scheduled, a race is a race no matter what the conditions.

Current Races:

Auckland to Fiji 2023
Welcome to Auckland and, for the fifth time in Sailonline's history, an epic race to the Melanesian island of Fiji, some 1144nm away. The iconic Steinlager 2 has traditionally been our boat of choice for this event, including in 2020, the last time we raced the course – alone, unaccompanied by a real fleet as it had been #COVID19 quarantined. Alas, this year we will again be racing unaccompanied as low entry numbers has seen the real race cancelled. Hopefully, though, some of the real sailors from the Royal Akarana YC, hosts of the real event, will be joining us online to pit their skills against ours in the ever-changing forecast winds.

Cape Town to Auckland 2023
Welcome to this second RTW race 2023. It's also the June edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is slightly different from the one sailed in 2020, which then also was part of the RTW series.
This time we will race in the IMOCA 60 foil, as in all RTW races this year. That should guarantee the fun in the South Seas in a truly tough race.
