Is it correct to assume the VORG will begin leg 3 at the same time as the actual boats, i.e., 14 Jan 14:00 (UTC, 10:00)?
Does the SS have the current wind forecast? I would be interested in watching how the predicted course changes with each forecast if possible during next 48 hours.

Greetings to all and a BIG THANKS to our host Cvetan.

Yes, it'll probably start with the real boats. The forecast is updated regardless of the current races. I'll add the start/finish/gates for the next leg after they are announced.

.. But so far it seems that we are going to have few days to think about Indian Ocean strategy while waiting for wind in the Gulf of Oman ;)

Looks like it's getting windy there by the time we're supposed to be there, or...?

My original point was the game developers/controllers? have not interpreted the race start time correctly (in my humble opinion that is). Abu Dhabi is on GST which is UTC +4. So if the real race starts at 14:00 hrs local time then the real race starts at 10:00 UTC and not 11:00 UTC as the VORG is advertising. The virtual race can begin when ever the game controllers want it to begin.

I will be ready! [Also if I'm skiing in the Alps (Champoluc) at present]

Kindly make me a favour, help the race board removing any walls/rocks/flag poles while leaving the harbour...

Do i need a new extension for leg 3

No. It gets the current leg automatically since the start of Leg 2.

I'll add the marks to the chart later today.

Time for start as I saw it was 1100 UTC, 1500 local time. Which is 0400 where I am... yawwwwwn!

0700 where I am. If we started the same time as the real boats we would be starting at 0300 for you and 0600 for me.
