The sims become slowly more and more Rough and so we had 2 crashes yesterday out of 8. Lucy, Jenna, Sea, Viv, Lisa, Moon Rugger and Sirius came to race our B25 Course with wind north east and 18 knots.
The first start saw all very close together and they all left like that Triumphal and got all stopped at the boarder to Dunai Sound.
That sim was offline and someone just asked to restart that one parallel to our racestart. This sim had no problems at all 30min before and no one was around there. I watched the area the whole time because of the parallel running Topless Cruise to see where the Cruisers are.More to this and some more Actions at the end of this report.
I called all back to Triumphal for a Restart of the race.
The fleet sailed fast with their wonderfull colored spins up to buoy 2.
Between buoy 1 and 2 were two boats waiting, one big Endeavour Trimoran and a FS. I watched them the whole time as well. Both just started when they saw the fleet coming. The FS was the same that hit one of our racers some weeks ago already on purpose and the Endeavour belonged to the cruisers as well, because i saw it a bit later sailing to the party area. The Endeavour tried to sail through the race fleet into Dunai area which was far away from the cruise route and the FS sailed far north of the actual cruise route. They didnt react at all on my call to respect the racers, but fortunately their skills were bad yesterday and they missed the fast sailing fleet totally.
Because of These actions and because of getting their names (i will publish the names when they do it again) i couldnt get any pics of the first Long upwind to the wreck and Roman boat.
Viv on her chase through the fleet and having an exciting duell on the leg to buoy 5 with Jenna.
Viv passed Jenna and Moon passed Sea and caught up with Lucy on the leg to buoy 6
During the Zigzag Course through the northern Dunai sims the postions didnt Change anymore.
Here is the result from yesterday:

The summary just about the sailing Actions includes a far ahead sailing Lisa after the restart, two exciting chases of Viv and Moon with exciting duells and unfortunately 2 crashes.
But there happened some more strange Things around our race. A good friend lately told me that i should better report things here without emotions (which isnt really easy after i watched yesterday combined with all already happened in the past).
The Topless Cruise wasnt crossing the race fleet during the last 3 weeks, but this week they used again the same area as we do.
I am noit judging what happened, i just report what i watched.
1. some of the sailors practiced the start and the first legs before the race and the Dunai sims were all fine and had no issues at all. But still someone asked for a restart of Dunai Sound right parallel to our start time. That sim is the only one you can cross to leave Dunai area and to enter the main race area and so the hole fleet got stopped at the boarder to Dunai Sound.
In my opinion it was a very strange timing for a restart of that central sim or what do you think?
2. In Tymel and Pan Suong were two boats waiting for about nearly one hour and just started sailing when the fleet crossed Dunai Sound after the restart of the race and tried to sail right through the fleet.
In my opinion another very strange timing or what do you think?
Fortunately the later restart of our race caused that most of the cruisers were already back in Twice Bitten and the bad skills of the Endeavour and FS Skipper didnt cause any major trouble for our racers.
Stay all save and healthy and hopefully see you all next time again.
