Hi,

Is it possible to modify the starting date ? Vr announces the start of the race on the 6th of November at 1pm.

The start was reported because of stormy weather in Britain on sunday.

Thanks.

Is it a fleet race or a record?

It's a normal race, not a record

Cvetan, is it possible to put a gate into the router to not allow us to go South of Rio until we are West (or South) of the turning mark? Is the gap between the turning mark and the mainland large enough for the router to be able to figure that out?

The lead group is projected to get to Rio around 4 or 5 AM in my timezone, and without such a gate, I'd have to wake up at 4 AM to get a routing... I'd love to be able to get the routing without waking up if possible... :-)

Thanks!!!

The turn is too sharp for the router, so a gate won't work. I'd place one right from the start if I could.

Remember, the router can't make a step backwards, i.e. closer to the origin than the previous one. That's one of the thing that makes it fast enough for online service.

On a second thought the route to Cape Town is likely to continue down the coast with the current forecast, so it might work, but I'll have to check.

Thanks. That's in line with my thinking.

Or maybe you can artificially make the Guandu River 20 nm wide and 200 nm long so we can set starting points upriver and route to Cape Town from there. ;-)

Added the gate, and it works to some extent, but:

- You have to be North of it when you check, because it's defined as N-S gate

- The result may or may not be optimal, depending on the weather conditions.
