The weather conditions were normal for these times after the restarts during the day. But the weather conditions in general become worse since weeks.
– Disconnect crashes and crashes during TP (like we had 2 years ago) return more and more
– you have to pass a sim cross now with a lot more distance to be safe, 5-10m in the past, 20-25m now
– after hitting a sim cross it becomes harder to tp back on the boat again and the avi will be send to somewhere but not back on the boat
– sims and simboarders turn boats randomly around without any reasons and with different angles
– after a sim crossing it can take up to 30s until you get control of your boat back, while it continues sailing, but mostly not really into the right direction
But besides all these issues coming up we had an exciting race again with many close duels and battles. Lisa, Reni, Lucy, Ella, Alya, Erika, Adeli, Viv, Laured, Nicci, Moon and Rugger came out for yesterdays race on our normal course with wind from North West and 21knots. Laured, Adeli and Nicci crashed after sim crosses and couldnt get back on her boat. Nicci had some issues with her ID and wasnt registered as well, if you miss her in the result list. Viv lost control on a crossing and the boat went into circle mode with all scripts down. Her tries to get back on the boat let her be only crew but never the skipper again and so she gave up.
The start went pretty well. Only Rugger was very close to a foul this time for his tack in front of Adeli. She reacted perfectly and fast and could sail around him, but that was only luck in this case. A little more lag and Rugger would have gotten a penalty.
It was an amazing picture seeing the fleet coming closer short after the start on their first upwind leg.
On the way to buoy ON we lost Adeli who was just starting to pass Reni.
We saw several different strategies on the long upwind to buoy OW and the sailors crossed several times each others lines without any accidents.
On the way to buoy OW we lost Laured and Viv, who was slowly catching up with Lisa. After that Lisa was still in front and Reni followed her now a little behind.
Moon, Nicci, Rugger and Lucy had a nice battle on the long downwind legs back home until Nicci crashed short before last buoy CS and then they were only 3 until the finish.
Imagine how exciting the races could be if the performance of SL wouldnt become slowly worse and worse. Not sure how long people will accept this before starting to send massively complains about the worse becoming performance to LL. I hope i can motivate some with this report to start with it now already.
And here is the result from yesterday:

Congrats to Lisa for winning and a big thank all for a fair and exciting race.
Stay all safe and healthy and i hope to see you next week again. Then we will be back on normal time 1:30PM SLT, because Europe will have changed to summertime as well and on reversed course with wind North East and 21knots.
hugs and kisses
