Hi all

I'm on the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta
No buoy along the race which implies we're free to choose our route. North of the UK was the fastest route
I just found out the new obscure underground rule is we have to follow the white line inside the english channel even though there's no buoy to force that route !?!?!

Is anyone else experiencing this?
What's the next step? How far away from the white line is too far away?
Next Vendee, those who sailing along the Africa coast on the way down South get disqualified?

Not obsolete. Just invisible, and it's been like this for quite a while.

And it has nothing to do with the white line. I mean, it may be guaranteed to clear all invisible gates, but it not way guarantees that you can or can't pass some island on the other side.

It's been that way for so long that even the top guys who've been around still don't know this obscure rule
What's the point of invisible buoys? To improve the customer experience?

That's the million dollar question, literally. Why the fuck they have to hide the mandatory gates.

So here I am.

Just taken the frigate to Lizards End. Watch out here I come again. Jumped from 14111 to 9780 in the Ranking. Will post my final ranking in about 5 days and 8 hours. Best to all.
I love sailing, but started a Hotel and Restaurant Business 5 Years ago and have no time to get out on a boat. So VR is all I am left with for the moment. Hope the VR Team read this forum an perhaps may get things sorted.

Fair Winds or as they say in Germany "break your mast and sheet". Sometimes I don't get them.
