Shields@Noon in TrYC – March 17th, 2018

Six boats this week, with the return of Indra and Angie in her first ever race. Jodie help her, teaching how to use nav aids (good old TrapNav), and did great in my opinion.

This week Hotlaps is running again in TrYC, which means that I had to stop the Hotlaps line, but used the same wind broadcasted by HL setter. Just had to warn racers to ignore the bright yellow line.

Oh, about penalties, this time no light penalties like 360° turn. A rule is broken? Heads will fall!

In first race, SL was acting almost good, but as usual Paul lost control when entering Triumphal sim, could recover but not without a heavy penalty. And Angie crashed in last leg, approaching Triumphal 😦

The fleet starting (showing the hotlaps line)

The fight Indra X Chris last until last meters

And in background, Moon X Paul, but Paul haven’t boat control at this time 😦

They come in pairs!

Second race. SL changed its behaviour. Super laggy, racers stalling, crashes, all the known nasty behaviour of SL.

Indra had a bad start (due to lag) but SL made Chris stall for a long time, leting Indra to recover part of her prejudice. Paul crashed soon, and later Moon also lost control and abandoned. Not a good race 😦

  1. 1) Good to see you showing no mercy for tardy racers. Heads will roll!!!

    2) The new strategy is showing success already. In the photo of the start your whole flock is well on course to the startline, not getting lost somewhere in the milling area. Very good.

    3) Your friend Augusto is cool. Super cool. Too cool maybe. Arriving 1 hour late to the start, is that typical male Brazilian behaviour?

    4) SL needs a kick in the ass. Definately! And Triumphal? Trap should maybe ask LL for a restart? Or you, as head RD, can do it as well? See if it helps with the sim performance. I know in the old times, when Nautilus was a new continent, Triumphal was used by LL for load and performance tests.
