    Hmm. Maybe not fog, but "Stealth mode" would be really great. That would be that you could "dissapear" from anyone more than, say, 15 nm away from you. So that you could try to lose those "shadows" that sometimes appear. This time it's not a prolem for me...

    Actually, I would think the day/night feature should absolutely follow the boat position sun azimuth, not the computer clock!

    Hi, I think the Night Zone is just great, and adds to the fun factor of the game.

    But you could easily have it as an option (that I would choose to have on :-).

    Case SWE54 just makes my point clearer: he can now after St.Malo post 1-1-1-2-2, and I can just call with 1-1-1-3-3. However, in rankings, with my activity points he can not even come close.
    As much as I hate to lose, it is almost as painful to be at the top merely thanks to quantitative merits ;-).

    Thanks Jakob, I knew you would understand my delicate situation. And appreciate my needs to rest once in a while... ;-).

    Please, I want a limit on the "participation bonus points", like 1000 points (20 races).

    I like the rankings now (obviously ;-), but as we are very even on the top, one missed race would mean giving up several placings...

    Also, it is a bit funny, that in a race with less participants, the points difference between subsequent placings increases. For instance, if a pair mixes 1-2 finishes in two races, that who wins the race with _less_ participants gains an advantage in points.

    Have to comment myself: it seems the weather is OK now.

    It seems we are again missing weather infos, now two schedules 080327 UTC0500 and UTC1700.

    This is not an complaint;-) I have plenty of old weather data to choose from, but the accurate weather is just an essential part of this game, me thinks. What I absolutely do not like is the possible "surprise" of an unscheduled weather update.

    I mean, I'm not going to stay up all night fo just in case, I'm gonna sleep ;-)

    Heh, maybe this should be put into perspective... you are not actually steering the boat or anything, rather "piloting".
    I would be perfectly happy to give my possible "unfair update rate frequency advantage" to you dagge, and then we would see what happens. In fact, a slower response would perhaps have saved some unpleasant plus/minus error jibes & tacks, and miles lost...

    Hey Dagge, that is just how the program works!
    I mean, this is not 100% real-time, online, but more a strategy game.
    The boats are updated normally about every 15 sec. Such a delay in a 5-day game is certainly not unfair?

Current Races:

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
