Race Day 33 with Bandit 25R at Tryc

Lucy, Laured, Nicole, Dahlia, Yvonne and Juicy joined me yesterday for the Bandit 25R race on our B25 course with North East wind and 18knots. Elphida joined me on my boat as my crew. This looked like a great fleet and we expected after the race area was migrated into the cloud with quite smooth crossings an exciting race. But you might have experienced already that the best parties were never those you are looking forward to but the ones you actually didnt wanna join.

When you look at the results you wont find Yvonne. She crashed already at first sim crossing and with only 10sec autoreturn in Dunai East her boat was gone immediately and she couldnt come back in time.
Laured crashed somewhere between buoy 2 and 4.
My story is a bit longer. With Elphi on my boat watching the race, we sailed right after the start ahead and could manage to sail away frome the rest. On our way to buoy 5 our hard-luck-story started. Far ahead of the fleet i got the first script errors and had enough time to resit relaxed and continued. One sim crossing later we got same errors again. So another resit. And as if that wasnt enough bad luck the next sim crossing showed me to resit again but i couldnt do anything, because i was already in the disconnect mode and got a little later the grey screen. I came back and found my boat pretty fast again with still Elphi sitting bravely in it. So i tried to sit back on it, but i needed 15 tries to get on it again and the boat still sailed eastwards. Then Elphi couldnt sit back on it… I just sailed the broken boat back to Triumphal and missed the race actions of all the others.

The nice fleet at the briefing

The start went quite well, except Yvonnes crash and the fleet left Triumphal. Between buoy 1 and 2 Lucy reported first resit.

Dahlia a little ahead of Nicole after buoy 2 followed by Laured and Juicy (not on the picture)

Somewhere on the way to buoy 4 Laured crashed.

Elphi and me still far ahead of Nicole near buoy 4

After my problems started Nicole took the lead and Lucy, Dahlia and Juicy followed her and as it seems without any more duell actions until the finishline. Sorry but i cant really say more today about this race.

When i was back at Triumphal Nicole had already finished her race and i missed her picture

Lucy finished 2nd
Dahlia finished 3rd
Juicy finished 4th

As i cant tell much about the race actions i will say abit about the sailing situation on sl waters. LL is still proud of their new sim crossing code and that they have migrated all into the cloud. But well that is their version. We all notice different things:
1. the script errors on scripted vehicles become still worse and nothing happens. This frustrates more and more sailors.
2. Since the Amazon “Cloud” Servers in Seattle have now our data the ping time to the sims raised. In my case its now 40-60ms slower than before and the tolerance is about 3-6 times higher now than it was before. Which means i had in the past 180-200ms ping time to the sims and quite stable, but have now 220 to 350ms and jumping around like hell. This doesnt help at all as you can imagine.
3. I will watch it more and might report with next races more things that have changed.

And here is the result from yesterday:

  1. All I can say is that it was a surprise to me finishing in 2nd position. Weather was terrible to me with many freezings, not only when racing but while acting as RD in Shields races later, and I had to resit 5 times during your race.

    But it seems that it was even worse for the others 😦

  2. “ping time to the sims raised. In my case its now 40-60ms slower than before and the tolerance is about 3-6 times higher now than it was before.”

    Please, can anyone tell me again why exactly we moved to the cloud?
