After less than a mile I am already aground, i thought the problem was solved...
I checked two or three times before changing my waypoint, i reload the page every 30 secondes, i was far from the coast and then 1 minute later : bing..

I started ad heading 299. Did not dare to go for 300.

Had a brief moment of panic after the slight turn, but the position happened to be true this time.

BTW i'm in this one with full options, because I've sailed and windsurfed those places in real life.

299 seemed bold to me. I started with 297.

I started with 299 too but my little turn was a bit too early and my right foil touched a rock

Really wonder if somebody dared to backtrack after "rounding" the first buoy at the north end of the island like the router suggests. Really thought long about it.

Has anyone checked the invisible end of the buoy 3 gate? Do we have to pass between Antikythera and Kithira as the white line suggests, or can we leave Kithira to port if we want?

I guess it's good that the Corinth Canal isn't open in the game. That would have potential to cause all sorts of confusion.

The other end is on the mainland, so Kithira is free choice. As is the spelling of Antikithira - Google maps shows it both ways simultaneously ;-)

Edit: But with the general and current weather patterns there we'll probably sail close to the buoy anyway.

TWA 30� difference between GUI and Dashboard. Ridiculous to steer in this low wind area.

"escort frigate" is it gone?
Post by iconPost by mak08 | 2018-10-12 | 10:38:08
That's an interesting question, actually.

The frigate is not visible in the game anymore.
Its position is still reported in the server messages however. If you join late your boat starts from that position.

Xeelee's map displays it.

Did somebody knows something about next legs in this race?
I mean track, departure day/time.

Leg 2 will start on 17th of October, 4PM GMT (18:00 Paris Time), probably from Djerba (track still unknown though)

Leg 3 will start on 29th of October, 5PM GMT (18:00 Paris Time - DST occuring on 28 Oct.). Track unknown.

Leg 4 is still totally unknown.

The supposed route of the Odyssey goes to Spain, then to Sicily, back to the Balearic islands and finally home to Ithaka, with some versions going as far as Gibraltar.

So it should be along the lines of:

2. Djerba - Sicily - Valencia.
3. Valencia - Sicily - Ibiza
4. Ibiza - Sicily - Ithaka

see and

Thanks for the historical links!

@mak08 Strange. I see the frigate all the time.
Post by iconPost by mak08 | 2018-10-12 | 12:11:00
Indeed after entering Odyssey 1/4 with another boat and completing the setup, I also see the Frigate.

Still, the Frigate is not displayed before you complete the setup.

Zezo, do you know when the leg 2 were online. I like check a few days before the start to see how the course changes every days.
Post by iconPost by toxcct | 2018-10-15 | 13:25:35
3 or 4 days ago (I add races manually on the Polar App too, so I did it few days ago)
