Hello, I only reconnect now with the forum. thanks you very much for your thanks in msg or DM.
It has been such a great moment, and imo the best of it, has been meeting the 7 other guys in real life after racing against each others for the last 2 years. I really feel live racing in the same place, although not easy to organize is a great thing.
Any of the 8 person in the room could have been the winner in the winner take all final race, and I had the tiny bit of luck that let me take the lead to the finish line. But i am also very proud of this win.
Regarding the live streaming yes it is very unfortunate, especially with the last hour decision, but the reason is due to the constraints (state own building) of the arena we played in and they (3rd party streaming provider) did not want to take any chance to alter the races by cloagging the network with the uplink video stream or stream in very low quality. (alternative solution were not possible in reasonable cost).
It may sound odd in my mouth to say but VR team has been very good over there. We had a full feedback session with all 8 persons, and I am really under the impression that 1) they agree on many/most of the points we provided to them ( (including SRR) , and 2) want to fix them once the route du rhum is past.
Also wordsailing team has also been great with everyone of us and have renewed their committed to esailing, so I really feel there will be more great events to come and be more organized than this year O in easiling.
We also had the chance to go for a real sailing with Torben Grael, and Sofia Bekatorou for example, and be part of the Gala that announced the sailors of this year, and it was a great fun.
@1000milliardsdemile at the beginning of the video we all enter one by one and they say which boat we sail.
Finally some of the players may help grow esailing on their respective countries, so maybe this may bubble even more.
i am consolidating links and infos with this twitter account, twitter.com/l1inshore if any useful to someone.
