  1. OFFICIAL PROTEST There are six teams that are currently cheating in both the Team Competition and the individual races by sharing login credentials and setting up shifts for team members to manage a team boat. This is in clear violation of VR rules. SEE: www.virtualregatta.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010791933-Can-other-team-members-control-my-boat- Article 4: Liability / security The User is solely responsible for his User account and his identifiers. The login name and password of the User are personal and confidential. To guarantee the security of his User account, the User undertakes in particular to: not disclose his connection identifier or password to third parties; take all the necessary precautions to prevent a third party from having access to it; use a personal mailbox and do not share it; not to play on the User account of a third party. The loan, sharing, exchange, donation, purchase, transfer and sale of User accounts is prohibited. Any loan, sharing, exchange, donation, purchase, transfer or sale of User account will not be enforceable against the Company and may give rise to the sanctions provided for in article 12 of these T & Cs. In the event of fraudulent use of his User account and / or password, or in the event of the loss or theft of his identifiers and / or password, the User undertakes to immediately inform the Company. Any act will be considered as performed by the User until receipt of an e-mail warning the Company that his confidential data has been usurped The offending teams and illegal boats are: Team Vendee eSailing TVD (Boat: Team_Vendee_TVD), Team Sgps Fvr (Boat: Team GSPS F-VR) , Marins (Boat: teamboatmarin), Les Pirates Des Oceans (Boat: LPDO : Le Black Pearson), AVR Sailing Team (Boat: les amis de VR), and a boat from a yet to be determined team (Boat: team,gppp13) The boat kiki85710 of Team Vendee eSailing TVD is orchestrating the systematic cheating scandal and runs a Facebook group to help manage this effort: www.www.facebook.com/CIT-112429583714396/ niki85710 claims to have up to 14 teams that have agreed to participate going forward in this scandal: www.docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeiF7WVvgonP8MnISZuNik2KAkXqMqW2F8e3fj_9pzNCaFscw/viewform Recomendations: 1. All offending teams be disbanded and elliminated from Team Competition. 2. All offendding boats be illiminated from all rankings and accounts canceled. 3. niki85710 be banned from VR.
  2. So you are admitting to cheating. This doesn't look good for you.
  3. I think this is shitty thing you are doing, sailing an multi-skipper boat and stealing spots away from single skipper boats. This is against the VR rules and violates the Corinthian spirit of sailing. All six teams should be sanctioned.
  4. Do you mean if you have two boats with the same name? I'm not sure I understand the differentiation. Lost in translation. Define "main boat" and "secondary boat".
  5. I am going to campaign a PDD boat. How do I get registered into the challenge?

    I'm happy to refuse access to VR to my phone but I'd like to hear from the developers why they are requesting it.

    Permissions

    I updated my VR Offshore to the latest version, 3.8.5, and it requested permission to "Make and manage phone calls." Why would VR need to use my telephone?
  8. I'm not sure I get the whole idea behind the multiple races of the Route du Ruhm. Plus, I'm not sure I understand how the teams work. How does one register and communicate with other sailors? I've looked at the documents at: www.onedrive.live.com/?authkey=!ANLlkv9uoB1UGVc&cid=9050730AE95B6CC1&id=9050730AE95B6CC1!5916&parId=9050730AE95B6CC1!5860&o=OneUp but it's pretty cryptic. What's the difference between IMOCA and ULTIM? DonJuan21
  9. Of course...I know how to do that for the Pacific Challenge. How do you do it for Odyssey 1/4?
  10. Is there a way to cancel a registration for a race. If something comes up I won't be able to sail the next race but I don't want a DNS or DNF penalty.
  11. Didn't mean to make two topics. I submitted and didn't think it went through.
  12. I'm curious. I've got a competitor on my starboard flank. We have the exact same setup on board. Same apparent wind angel but not same apparent wind speed. He's a 10'th of a knot faster but with -0.2 knts less wind? We are 0.5 miles away from each other. How come? Is VR getting a better resolution of wind speeds and angles then are delivered to the competitors?

  14. What type of boat is being used in the Pacific Challenge and where are the polars?
