Race Day 31 with Bandit 25R at TrYC

Yesterday weather conditions were mostly fine but with some personal dark rain clouds. Sandra gave up after second crash, Dahlia and me felt sailing like in yoghurt (very slow boat reactions), Dahlia, Lucy and i reported again about several resits and Dahlia got pulled off the boat once. The others had mainly sunny weather. Only Moon got a bit lost with the wrong course after buoy 5 and lost his first position.
Lucy, Nicole, Yvonne, Nihi, Sandra, Dahlia and Moon joined me yesterday on our B25 course with wind from south west and 18knots

the fleet at the briefing

The start was this time slower than normal. One boat at the Triumphal exit tacked too early and made the exit a lot more narrow. That caused a chain reaction and a traffic jam at the exit. After a short time all boats were on their way again to buoy 1 and 2. Sandra had her second crash around buoy 2 and gave up. Lucy reported her first resit at buoy 1 already. Moon was quite a bit in the lead on the leg to the wreck and Roman boat and the rest followed him lined up. Several personal rain showers (resits or pulled off the boat) and Moons detour after buoy 5 shuffled the rankings a bit until all except Sandra finished. We had some little duells during the race but mainly i had the feeling it was one of the most strange races we had so far.

Nicole finished
Nihi finished
Yvonne finished before Lucy
Lucy finished
Moon finished
Dahlia finished

LL announced rolling restarts for Main Channel (means for TrYC race areas as well) for next Tuesday. I hope we get then the same software code as the RC channel and we will see how many sims will be migrated then to the cloud.
This will be just in time for our B22 race on tuesday and i hope it will calm down the conditions.

Here is the result from yesterday:

  1. You sure the uplift will help with the script errors n shit? Hmm, I don’t trust the cloud, not the least little bit. But you kidz will hopefully know what to do.

    • i submitted a new ticket…referring to the one they closed because i was to annoying i bet…
      i reported the first script errors already in beginning of August and added a lot more to it nearly weekly. I got told that your engineers are working on it but it is still getting worse instead of better.
      And with the Migration and new Crossing Code i discover more very annoying Things:
      1. sims behave in the middle like former crossings… boat gets turned around suddenly or stopps for seconds.
      2. The navigation mathematics is sometimes messed up on the new crossings. Position of the boat or the sailing direction are different in the new sim, which causes always a loss of speed. It is very annoying in races or with the sailing through narrow channels (running suddenly into Orbs or Bannlines).
      3. It was always risky to cross a 4way cross between sims. But in the past you were safe when you passed it vy 5-10m. Now i need to pass it by least 20m to be mostly safe and not to be pulled off the boat and find myself back on the bottom left corner of the sim while my boat is continuing.
      In the excitement of races you cant always sail that far away from 4 way crosses, you can get forced by sailing rules into 4 way crosses now very easily and loose the race then. Beside races with normal sailing there are a lot of sims where the residents there just a little corner to pass and this corner isnt enough anymore. The result is a crash with sometimes autoreturn of your boat or when you manage to tp back on your boat you get extreme script errors that force you to stop the boat, stand up and resit and then continue.
      Well i got told its all work in progress and i was very patient the last couple of months and tried to keep my racers patient as well. But i havent seen any positive improvement only negative improvement the longer it goes. This is very annoying and people start not to race anymore or really think of giving their premium membership back because of this worse becoming performance.
      I know you do a lot of work with the migration to the cloud and it might be better for the future, but you forget the presence and the people who are online now. But people start to believe this status quo will stay for a long time and they dont believe your words anymore that you are working on fixing the bugs you created with the new crossing code.
      regards from a very frustrated sailor and permium member

      lets see what they will say this time

  2. Last wednesday in Paul’s Shields races. I just had put me in position to shadow Moon when freezed for a long time…

    Can you see the green buoy (through the sail, just below the drawing in my sail – click the pick to enlarge it)? It had to be rounded CCW. When unfreezed I was already in next sim, obviously having passed the buoy by the wrong side, what means that I had to return, round the buoy correctly and only them resumed the course, while Moon was already 2 sims ahead in the right course…
