Hello, just for information.
There won't be any zezo for La Mauricienne?

Our webmaster may not have had the time.
Thank you.

Hi Zezo.
Thank you for your work.

In the section = "predicted time to equator", what are the coordinates of the "Equator" point?

Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-05 | 16:10:47
The first possible crossing.

Target is South Africa, but it does not really matter.

In this race the target is about two weeks to Agulhas, but the early forecasts don't have enough data to reach it, so you have to check daily (at least when good time to the equator is predicted)
Post by iconPost by misterdjul | 2020-10-05 | 16:24:17
how many days for the equator? 6/7 or 8?
I am thinking about the stage: fernando de noronha.
To avoid the "pot au noir" area.

Equator is possible in less than 6 days, but we may not have enough time to wait for that. Real world record attempts have been sitting on standby for 6 months waiting for that ideal window.

Approaching South Africa along the coast is unlikely indeed, because of the doldrums, and because of the st. Helena high with steady headwind down South.

But with some (a lot of) luck a shortcut a bit east of Brazil works sometimes.

Hi Cvetan,
I see a lot of difference between the boat speed displayed in the UI and in the dashboard (15.3 TWS, 18.66 boat speed, 60TWA) and the one displayed in the Zezo router (15.5 TWS, 17.02 boat speed, 60TWA).
Are you sure the polars are the same?

Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-07 | 04:52:37

I've applied the single-handed configuration without the 10% crew bonus.

Post by iconPost by toxcct | 2020-10-07 | 07:33:43
The polars are for the "multi/maxi_trimaran_x10percent" boat, right ?
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-07 | 10:46:27
Yes, id=9

Now we got better times to the equator too ;-)

Dear All,
I cannot log in in VRo with my computer during the last three days.
This is very a so bad situation expecially considering that I bought a full pack with the expectation to sail in virtual regatta!!!

Sometime, I can log in with my tablet or mobile. But I do not have zezo there.

So, my question is: After the start, is it relyable the zezo routing even if I am not logged in at the same time? I have noticed that the zezo's maps look updated

Many thanks,

Post by iconPost by Pimpi | 2020-10-08 | 16:20:29
PS a warm thank you to zezo for the support :-)

Ciao Pimpi,
you could load the chart related to Mauricienne on the pc and load the coordinates you can see from the tablet. In this way you always have an updated routing.

Okay, doesn't seem to matter how many program moves you get, they don't work. Just sailed right through one like it wasn't there. Teammates are reporting that their boats are returning to the old bearing after making a course change.

Biggest problem. Position is not updating in Dashboard. Still reporting my first position after the start, repeatedly. Clicking boat to get position manually is disabled due to too many players.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-09 | 12:37:11
Yes, right now the boats are stuck at 12:05 UTC. Seems that the game engine is not running and we only see the client-side position interpolation.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-09 | 12:41:14
Also, the client-side collision detection seems to be running in larger steps. Shows the warning somehow inland, and I hit Groix right in the middle - track was going straight through it on the default zoom level.
Post by iconPost by Hardtack | 2020-10-09 | 12:46:30
Very strange things going on. I just started an attempt and it seems that even manual commands don't work.

I will check the dashboard later today. It is very possible that VR changed some message formats but I didn't see anything unusual when I looked yesterday.

Wind in the game is also off by 90°.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-09 | 12:53:08
It's not the dashboard. It's the data stream. Same message arrives every 5 minutes.
Post by iconPost by Hardtack | 2020-10-09 | 13:38:56
There is an obsolete column in the dashboard however :-)
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-10-09 | 13:12:14
I'm getting position updates now in Dashboard as of 13Z

Cvetan's comment about changes to the collision detection reminded me of the ice limit they had in the last Vendee and haven't had since... Where you could tack away from it and then be told you violated it because the extension of where your prior tack would have been would have crossed the line in the same 5-minute server cycle, or something like that... They haven't used an ice limit since that race, as far as I can recall. I wonder if the latest adjustments relate to trying to implement a new version of it.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-09 | 15:19:53
The protocol mentions ice limits in the race data, but it was never implemented in the current version.

But it has nothing to do with the ground chart. Ice limit is defined as set of lines and checked by formula.
Post by iconPost by YourMomSA | 2020-10-09 | 15:32:14
Ok. I was assuming the "collision detection" logic you were referring to was a shared algorithm, both for checking collisions with land and for checking violations of the ice limit. If the ice limit logic is entirely separate then there's no connection here.

Either way... I hope if they use an ice limit, they make it work better than last time... I'm doubtful, since they haven't had one since the last Vendee.

Ranking at the first gate
Post by iconPost by peatflyer | 2020-10-15 | 16:48:20
Is there no intermediate RANKING CROSSING THE FIRST GATE?

Nope, I emailed them, don´t expect a resolution before x-mas, not sure which year
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-10-18 | 19:02:41
What's a good time for this race? Was it done in crewed Ultimes last year?

Think we are going to have to make a restart decision in the next 2 days.
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2020-10-18 | 19:32:50
16 days 8 hours last year, with the solo boat.

But it was later in the year. Better conditions on average.

The upcoming window tomorrow or the next day can achieve something similar. 12.5 days to Agulhas.

The last possible moment to start would be in the beginning of November.

Is this event being impacted by the same bugs as Jamaica Express, or are they still running this one on the old engine?

I'm kinda staying away from it all until I have a sense that the bugs have been ironed out.
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-10-19 | 14:22:52
It's run on the old engine, although it has it's bugs. For instance, it's not ranking boats at the gates, so, no way to know if someone is on a flyer, unless you follow them.
Post by iconPost by Velaska | 2020-10-19 | 14:28:10
For what I can see La Mauricienne (having started on Oct 5th) is still using the old engine, with the new programming/waypoints structure.
I've found no one of the way too many silly bugs we had in Jamaica Express except for the fact that there is no ranking at the equator gate

Post by iconPost by YourMomSA | 2020-10-25 | 16:50:09
Equator in 5:16:05 or so. Anyone know of better?
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-10-25 | 20:15:54
Sure would be nice to know even your own time to the gate, assuming it happened overnight.

Anyways, very roughly, I see myself, NZ-Eligo and BossHogg all around 5:18. Not aware of anyone else better than that, other than you YMSA.
Post by iconPost by turtle 1663 | 2020-10-26 | 07:43:22
Nope, you´re the provisional virtual leader, your group is having the perfect run, coming down like rockets :-))

Post by iconPost by Solveig IV VSC | 2020-10-26 | 11:39:37
I'm also in the 5d, 18h group, more precisely 5d, 17h, 37'.
Post by iconPost by M63 | 2020-10-26 | 12:18:37
Me too ;)
Post by iconPost by Stevoo | 2020-10-26 | 21:06:06
I'm in 5d 16h 50m
Whats the issue with track and ranking? any Ideas??
Post by iconPost by YourMomSA | 2020-10-26 | 21:49:13
I don't know what's up with the track, but I think in the VR forum, a moderator said in response to the absence of intermediate rankings that this race didn't have intermediate rankings last year either... So I guess they don't view it as a problem.
Post by iconPost by Stevoo | 2020-10-26 | 22:50:32
I don't think that's correct, I'm sure we had gate rankings last year on this race.
this is the first time I have experienced this.
And its not really nice, as I liked to have a reverence to others

It was in French and I was skimming so maybe I mis-read it.
