Race Day 10 with Bandit 22LTE at Saint Aubrey

The weather conditions were pretty fine yesterday. Nicole, Lisa, Lucy, Laured, Adeli, Reni, Nicci, Erika, Ella, Moon and Rugger came for e really exciting race on our normal course with wind from South East and 21knots.
Some mentioned rough crossings, but only Rugger crashed on the second last leg yesterday and i guess he hit again the very dangerous sim cross there.

the fleet nicely lined up
and waiting for me to let them go

The start went pretty well. Adeli, Laured, Nicole, Lisa, Moon and Ella started close together within 11sec. Lucy, Rugger and Erika followed them only a bit later. Reni must have had some issues at the start and followed nearly a minute later. Nicci was a little too optimistic and was overearly. She had to come cack and started again behind all.

Adeli starts her 360
while Lucy and Laured passed Adeli and Rugger caught up
Reni passed alreday Erika on her chase
and Nicci passed Ella on her chase

After buoy ON several couples found together to have their private duel. Lisa caught up slowly with Nicole and they were fighting for the lead.

The fight for the lead became really exciting now. After buoy IS Nicole chose the more northern route while Lisa went first more south. On this leg Lisa passed Nicole.

followed by Nicole

Lucy could pass Moon with choosing the southern route as well

Lucy before Moon at buoy CN
Reni caught up with Adeli and Rugger following them

On the following leg we have a really dangerous sim cross which Rugger must have hit again and crashed after a well sailed race

Nicci and Erika still fighting at buoy CN
followed by Ella

On the last upwind leg into the finish Nicole stroke back and passed Lisa again

Nicole finished 1st and Lisa 2nd

Thank you Nicole and Lisa for a great duel for the lead and congrats Nicole to win it.

Lucy finished 3rd

The next 4 finished within 12 sec. It doesnt sound very excitining but look yourself:

Laured finished 4th, Adeli 5th, Reni 6th and Moon 7th
Nicci finished after her bad luck at the start 8th
Erika finished 9th and Ella 10th

The race saw a lot of exciting duels, great catch ups and position changes. It wasnt easy to remember all actions i saw in the race, but i hope i got them all.

Stay all safe and healthy and hope to see you all next week again.

hugs and kisses

      Oh pleez, ppl don’t treat our grid as if we had a second one!

            • Girls, you don’t get it, right? You just don’t get it. The thing is not who clears up all the rubbish but to avoid it in the first place!

              Like in RL, no boat I’ve ever sailed on had any rubbish going into the water! We had enough space to take the beer and food aboard before the cruise/race, so there’s still enough space to keep it after we’re done with it. Remember beer cans? Easily compressed to 1/4 their original size. All the food packaging? Left at the “ships chandler with 4 letters” (ALDI) before putting it in the crew shuttle in the first place. So on all “my” boats not even a teabag went overboard. Ciggie butts, unfortunately, went into the sea. But that was the only thing ever. At least on boats where I was the logistics officer/housekeeping/janitor. 😐

              I know in SL this is just a theoretical problem … BUT we shouldn’t even joke about throwing glass bottles overboard! Or tin cans … or anything really.

            • “not all beer bottle in sl waters are phantom…lol”
              Much worse were/are the duck family between the ancient lighthouse and the entrance to the Dunai sims. Dunno how often we begged LL to set them to phantom but they never did. 😮

                • “Throw the can away when it’s empty!”

                  That’s exactly what we did for all those years, didn’t we? Not even thinking about the can’s material mix being 3 – 4 times more valuable than its content.
                  BUUUUT we never, NEVER EVER threw the empties over board when sailing!
                  We waited until we were in any marina and told the boys to get rid of them at the rubbish containers while we prepared the evening meal. Mostly “Shit on a Shingle” or for Germans “Reis mit Scheiß” … or just spaghetti. 😉

  1. “On the last upwind leg into the finish Nicole stroke back and passed Lisa again”

    Well… actually..she passed me just after CN.
    i got stuck for many seconds after buoy CN.. boat not moving. keys not responding…. part of the game.. SL Gods decided for it but when i was passed i was not moving and the following chase was not enough Great race with a big “lottery” part at least for me.
    My hope is that my issues with sim crossing will finish today in the same way they appeared yesterday afternoon before the race.

    Hugs to all

      • Ye Lucy this is what happened to me suddently starting from around 4 PM Eu time.. Similar things happening to Adeli but not to other users. So it is very difficult to understand the cause and the feeling is something server side but… “user oriented” … .. Another symptom of this issue is … after a sim cross in the very middle of the line , far from the coner.. you see your boat sinking of flying and your dot on minimap goes to the corner… you stay like this for 5 / 10 seconds then you see yourself again 100 meters ahead and you take control again… I must say that i disabled script error messages so i dont know if all of this happens with a script error or not.. Ty for sharing

            What a super duper customer service they provide!
            “Our residents are dying from cancer? Hmm, maybe we should put asbestos in our sims, see if that helps?”
