Summer Race 2017

Hello Cvetan -

VR put the Summer Race out there with short notice. Will you be able to adjust your IMOCA chart to support it? Hopefully with the Timeshift feature?

Also, I noticed that the IMOCA chart currently won't consider routes through the Sunda Strait near Jakarta, even if you turn on "Ignore Gates". Can that be adjusted? I don't think that route is better, but it would be nice to be able to check.

I'm even wondering if a route that goes out near New Guinea before turning North might be good... but even with the power of Zezo, it's hard to figure that out, because it will take more than 10 days to get there.

Truthfully, I'm not sure if I'll pay for options in this race. I don't usually pay for Category 4 races, and I have a hurricane coming toward my house so I'm not sure if I'll have power this weekend or not. But it's an interesting route, and I enjoy using Zezo to explore the possibilities.

I would also very much appreciate you adding the Summer race...As Yourmom said, it's a really interesting route thst Zezo will. e incredibly useful for...Or if anyone can confirm which other races used the same boat, I'm sure we can make it work!
Yourmom: I was living in Houston for Alicia,so can relate to your situation: stay safe, hopefully dry and with your power on :)

Sunda Strait is not blocked, it just happens that the other route is much better.

Going further South than Singapore is extremely unlikely to be a winning route.

The only big decision for this leg is likely to be East ot West of Taiwan.

Stay safe with that hurricane IRL

There is no such thing as starting line in this game - boats are just released and free to go.

Also, this particular race does not seem to have mandatory gates.

But going North still is not a very good idea ;-)
