  1. Apparently Monsieur Turtle missed the deadline by 0.7 nm. May I recommend VR give him a small recognition in the article that primarily recognizes the winner?
  2. I guess he wasn't the only one... laser59 just took the lead
  3. For anyone still interested in this race, check out Awkward Turtle ( @awkwardturtle). He has 9 hours until the race closes, and he's doing 15 knots with 120 nm to go. He's at 28 days, 17 hours. So... if he can finish before the race closes, he'd put up a new leading time. If he falls short, it will probably be by only an hour or two. Are there any other boats with a chance to put up an outstanding time just before the race closes?
  4. Problem solved. They added a visible buoy on Bohol.
  5. Thank you. That's my interpretation exactly, including your bold notification of "current". Because the gate causing the problem is invisible, VR could still change it. I hope they do... because it is always very sad when a visibly acceptable is not accepted by invisible gates and users have races ruined for no visible reason. All they have to do is either move visible buoy 3 onto Bohol (making the course obviously unacceptable), before anyone gets there, or change the ensuing invisible gate to cross Bohol and the opposite channel (allowing the proposed course to validate the gate regardless of which side the sailor goes of Bohol).
  6. Has there been an answer about this? Could someone please summarize the discussion in English?
  7. It looks like it will be a random draw among finishers, not a prize for the winner. Meh.
  8. I believe the ghost's position is correct up until 24 days or so... and then it basically stops. So if you're doing well against the ghost early, that's great! Just don't be surprised when the ghost suddenly stops in the mid-Pacific.
  9. What are the terms to win the watch? Does it go to the winner of each race, or is it something else (like a random draw)?
  10. It looks like the presentation of the leader's ghost is incorrect. (Currently, the ghost of SlyStar). I have sailed 26 days, 10 hours, but it is showing me SlyStar's position after less than 24 days of his sailing... So it appears incorrectly as though I am much further ahead of his ghost than I should be. It's unfortunate because it is fun to race against the ghost of the leader. Hopefully this can be fixed. Edit: This race also has an issue with the history trails on each boat starting partway down-course, including your own. My tail currently starts in the mid-Atlantic, just before my "Day 3" dot. The two issues are probably related. I think the leader's ghost is showing his position in the same elapsed time as the time from when my tail started, instead of from when I actually started the race.
  11. 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?
  13. @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.
  14. 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.
  15. Thanks! With it all being in French, it's hard to know what has already been discussed.
