Any hidden gates in Volvo 10 or Clipper 11?
Post by iconPost by YourMomSA | 2018-05-29 | 20:25:30

At some point close to the start of Volvo Leg 10 and Clipper Leg 11, could someone please check and post if there are any hidden gates in either race? (Then maybe re-check later in the leg to make sure it hasn't changed like in Mini en Mai...).

Both look pretty straightfoward, so hopefully the answer is no... but it wouldn't shock me to see a Volvo hidden gate to leave the Hebrides to starboard or the Faroes to port, or maybe some hidden requirements around those islands at the finish... and in Clipper, it's a question of whether or not we're free to go through the Caribbean however we please.

In case you ask VR support, here's the computarised answer by Jessicabot:

Hello [NAME},

Thank you for your message.

It is important to keep in mind that the route you need to follow is represented by a white line on the map.

It begins at the start of the race and connects it to the finish line.

This plot is for reference only; it is not linked to any calculation. It represents the right course to follow, observing all course marks by passing on the right side of them, but not necessarily the best trajectory.

If you have other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.


In other words, don't bother to submit a ticket and let's keep eachother informed by having some watchdog analyse the VR-server messages for changes :(

Nothing you can miss.

Three scoring gates in parallel - Cancún - Cuba, Cuba - Haiti, Dominican Republic - Península de Paria

Point/mark 3A seems to have been moved further to the SW onto a different island. From Shetland to Orkney

Any more changes in the data?
