  1. Thanks to both of you for responding quickly, but... My point is... If you sail through the gate that Pat-Rock circled... that will indeed validate G4... But then if you pass North of Lolland from there (passing near Vordingborg), you will be able to sail to the finish without ever validating G5.
  2. I believe there's a flaw... -The first pair of gates looks fine... One to the West for the normal route, and then an alternative at Helsinborg. -The second pair also looks fine... One to the West for the normal route, and then an alternative across the East alternative (near Stralsund). -The third set is the concern. There are three gates in that set. One in the middle for the normal route... And then one to the West (near Flensbourg) and one where the East route would rejoin the fleet (near Fehmarn). These are all ok, but there is a gap in their coverage. If a boat sails the East route, passing Copenhagen, and then passes North of Lolland, they would fail to validate any of the gates in that third set. I believe it is necessary to adjust one of the gates of that third set, or add a fourth gate to that set, so that boats sailing that route will still be validated. I realize that route is unlikely to make a lot of sense... but the forecast has some light winds that could make exploration of that area worth considering... and it would be preferable to have this scenario resolved before boats get there.
  3. Thanks, Pat. This matches my understanding. I was just asking for the purpose of advance public confirmation, to minimize risk of confusion. Thanks!
  4. For the sake of avoiding the situation from Beneteau that some people are upset about... May I ask @Pat-Rock @Vector or another moderator to verify that it is NOT necessary to follow the white line in this race? I believe that literally ANY route that gets you to the finishing circle will be acceptable. Northbound, this doesn't mean much... It just means that if we hard weird wind conditions that led you to want to sail among the islands of Nationalpark Vadenhavet, you could. Southbound, it matters. Listed from the Westernmost to Easternmost options, I believe you could go... -Aggressively West, around Middlefart, or -Follow the white line to Nyborg, and then go West of Langeland, or -Just follow the white line, passing East of Langeland, or -Through Helsinborg and around Copenhagen, and then North of the island of Mon, and then through any of the channels from the town of Nyord to the finish, or -Through Helsinborg and around Cpenhagen, and then South of the island of Mon and on to the finish, going to eiher side of Fehmarn. I think that covers all of the options, short of detailing every channel one could follow north of Mon. In most wind conditions, it probably won't matter... but I figure it's worth being very clear about it, just in case some weird wind conditions result in a strange course being fast. Also... I believe it is NOT possible to take a short-cut through the fjords... It looks like that path is closed by land in Aggersund. Correct?
  5. Thanks! Very nice artwork!
  6. Thanks for the information. It's good to hear that a significant donation was made to a recognizable charity!
  7. Will there be an announcement of how many Full Packs were sold, how much revenue that produced, how much of that revenue will go to charity, and which charity? I'm very roughly guessing $50,000 Euros of revenue...??
  8. That's great news, thanks. If someone official will state how much money, and exactly what organization, that would encourage me and others to pay the price to enter this event. Without that information, the price for this event seems very high.
  9. The race announcement says that part of the revenue from options for the Great Escape races will go to "an association or project engaged in safeguarding maritime heritage". Can anyone what percentage will be donated, and what organization it will go to? With four Category 2 races going at once, this will be a lot of money.
  10. I run into that a few times per week... Turning the phone off to force a reboot always solves it.

    iTunes Login?

    For the last few days, my iPhone has asked me to provide my iTunes password every time I access a race. Even if I log in, it asks again the next time I access a race. Is anyone else having this problem?
  12. @Oxven Thank you for responding quickly to explain the situation. While the decision to proceed without isolating in-process events is very upsetting, I appreciate your efforts to explain the decision. Will anything be done for the people who feel wronged about this? Is there any value in submitting a support request, or would we be wasting our time? Personally, I haven't decided yet if this actually helps me or hurts me. It definitely kills my chances of beating the boats who have already finished under 40 days. I don't think I can achieve that now, whereas I had a chance before this change. It cost me at least a few hours. But... it probably also killed the chances of 100+ boats behind me of beating 41 days... so if I get to the finish under 41.5 days or so, it's possible that my result might be better as a result of this rather than worse... In which case I would feel bad for those who were hurt worse than me, but I would not feel justified in asking for a refund.
  13. If this is applied to JVT before it closes, I will be requesting a refund of my JVT entry fee. It will destroy the validity of that event by forcing those of us who are still racing to clear the doldrums in less wind than those who have already finished. I am very happy about this decision, but PLEASE don't apply it to in-process races, especially the JVT.
