  1. Sorry for any confusion, the 10th of October seems to be the typo and wrong ... the Official Close date for NY to SF is :    05-10-2020 00:0005-10-2020 00:00       

    I hope this clears things up... 


    Désolé pour toute confusion, le 10 octobre semble être la faute de frappe et faux ... la date de clôture officielle de NY à SF est le: 05-10-2020 00: 0005-10-2020 00:00

  2. cela se produit généralement avec un Internet plus lent ou un ordinateur qui ralentit, la prochaine fois que cela se produit, essayez de réinitialiser votre modem et le cache de votre navigateur.

  3. Hi Nik,  try logging out, close down your browser and then re open it again ,   clear the cache.   Log back into the game.  This should help,  or try another browser that is also up to date.

    Cheers V

  4. quelle méthode avez-vous utilisé pour payer? Apple Pay ou Google ..?   .... sur quel appareil (PC ou téléphone)? et quel navigateur utilisez-vous pour la transaction?

  5. oui c'est frustrant quand ça arrive, je pourrais faire une blague et dire que c'est un nouveau programme de distanciation sociale, en vous gardant à 6 pieds des autres bateaux, lol ..... mais malheureusement c'est juste un problème de mémoire ou de connexion. Essayez de redémarrer votre modem et de vider votre cache sur votre navigateur. cela devrait aider. soyez en sécurité.

    yes it's frustrating when it happens, i could make a joke and say it's a new social distancing program, keeping you 6 feet from other boats, lol ..... but unfortunately it's just a memory or connection problem. Try restarting your modem and clearing your cache on your browser. that should help. be safe


  6. Hello all iOS users.  A technical problem has occurred with purchases via iOS.  Purchases are debited but not honored. It is therefore  recommended NOT to buy your credits or options by using iOS for the moment.If you have  encountered this inconvenience, please contact the customer support who will help rectify the situation. Purchases on PC and Android work without problems. Thank you all, and sorry for any inconvenience. 


  7. Yes, when using Course Prog,  ( which is based on time, along a projected path).  With TrueWindAngle 'off',  your boat will sail directly to the 'mark',  and then change course direction at the time and angle you have programed.  When you set TWA 'on' your mark may shift direction, depending on wind angle and changing pressure systems. but the time will stay the same.  Not advisable when close to land and you cant keep watch, as you too will experience the pain of running a ground, like we all have at one point or another. Simply put when TWA is 'on', your boats projected path will "bend" with the wind. It can be unpredictable as weather patterns change and new data is loaded. I highly recommend supervision when using it.  Just start playing around with the navigational tools as a guest to get a feel for them, or dive straight in and get a full pack and experiment with a few things...It can be a very useful tool.   hope this helps... Cheers V



  8. Yes,  now you are getting the picture, simply put, your boat sails directly to the waypoint. If there is a wind shift and its is unfavorable it will affect your boats performance. Plan your WP's carefully.

    You can use WP's to tack to a destination, and using "AutoSails" will help keep your optimum sails and speed.  It's something you have to experiment & try to get a feel and understanding. 

    Also consider " Heading Programmer ":  to help keep you on course when off line.    https://virtualregatta.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001528854-What-is-the-heading-programmer-for- 

    Again, I highly recommend experimenting and trying it out, to really get an understanding of how it works ... and welcome to VR,  I'm sure you will get the hang of it in no time..  cheers Vector

  9. Sorry to hear that, I have been using iOS and have not experienced any major problems on VRO & VRI.  It sounds like you have done all the right things. For me it only becomes problematic when I have sketchy internet.  If it happens again check your internet speed, clear your cache or check the modem. Have you tried different browsers ? 

  10. Thank you everyone for your patience during the recent problem.  We were victims of a third party crash and had to wait until the server company was back online. 

    We discovered that we were collateral damage from another Game that completely crashed, which resulted in the VR platform being dropped from the same company that hosts us. This set off a chain reaction that blocked users from logging in to their accounts,  apparently we were not the only company that was affected. I hope this satisfies your sense of curiosity and helps you understand what was going on behind the scenes with the Tech Crew, as we all tried hard to get the game back online as soon as possible.  Sorry for any frustration this may have caused you as  this was beyond our control. 

    Happy E Sailing. 


    Merci à tous pour votre patience lors du dernier problème. Nous avons été victimes d'un crash et nous avons dû attendre que la société de serveurs soit de nouveau en ligne.

    Nous avons découvert qu'il s'agissait d'un dommage collatéral provoqué par un autre jeu complètement écrasé, ce qui a entraîné le retrait de la plate-forme de réalité virtuelle de la même société que celle qui nous héberge. Cela a déclenché une réaction en chaîne qui empêchait les utilisateurs de se connecter à leurs comptes. Apparemment, nous n'étions pas la seule société touchée. J'espère que cela satisfait votre curiosité et vous aide à comprendre ce qui se passait dans les coulisses avec l'équipe technique, car nous avons tous essayé de remettre le jeu en ligne le plus rapidement possible. Désolé pour toute frustration que cela aurait pu vous causer car cela échappait à notre contrôle.

    Happy E Voile.

  11. Hello we are experiencing some technical difficulties at the moment. please stand by... we apologize for any inconvenience. 


    Bonjour, nous rencontrons actuellement des difficultés techniques. veuillez patienter ... nous nous excusons pour tout inconvénient.


  12. Virtual Regatta Offshore has struggled in in the past few hours.  It's possible that your boat has not behaved "normal" on the game,  and that your trajectory had been altered, as well as other features not been available. 

    The whole VR team has been mobilized to restore the situation as soon as possible, while the engine of the game works again, and we are optimistic,  we are still keeping the platform under close watch.

    Compensation measures will be studied over the next few days according to the extent of the damage caused by the engine problem, we will keep all informed.

    We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience. 

    VR Crew...

  13. The engine management platform of I Virtual Regatta Offshore faces significant difficulties today.

    Communication between your game interface and the engine is problematic, the game is currently on hold  and current races are currently stopped.

    We are doing our best to solve this problem as quickly as possible. A catch-up or new start will be scheduled as soon as we have been able to solve the problems.

    We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
