New Start Time for VOR 6! 2 HOURS earlier!!!!

Hi,
Just seen that the official Race will be starting 2 hours sooner in Hong Kong. Will we on VR also start sooner or do we stick to the old time?
Just trying to plan my night! 0700 CET is better than 0500 CET.

Best to all, and as the Germans say: Mast und Schott bruch!

There's actually a 3 hour difference in start times. I'm east coast US so earlier is better for me, but I don't think VR could adjust this close to the posted time.

Although come to think of it I wouldn't put it past them!

I wouldn't either put it past them. Tis why I ask.

Where do you get the 3 Hour bit from:

Countdown clocks on the official VOR website and VR homepage are 3 hours different.

Hmm. Volvo have got something wrong there. Either the Race is put forward by three hours and they are starting at 0300 UTC = 0400 CET, or the Start was originally planned for 0600 UTC or they originally planned to start at 0500 UTC and have taken it back by two hours. As usual, rather confusing.
I will check at 0400 UTC and 0500 UTC and 0600.... LET'S GO!

It was planned for 6 UTC and moved to 3 in real life.

Of course the real boats need a head start so they can be competitive against the virtual boats!
