I was also surprised !!
He left at 4:00 p.m.
They didn't even warn

Maybe because of the storm BELLA !!?

So... it looks like this year's TJV uses Maxi Tri's... Haven't the last few editions used the "Maxi Tri + 10%" polars? Max speed is 38 kts or so, whereas I think the usual event has boats that can do 42.

If so, then some questions...

-Do we have benchmarks for a "good start window" projected time to the equator and to Cape of Good Hope? The last few years, I think it was something like 5-5.5 days and 11.5-13 days... But with this year's polars, I'm guessing more like... 6 days and 14?

-Has this event used these polars before? If so, which year(s)? I'd like to look up the winning elapsed times. I'm guessing 44-46 days...

-When Cvetan first opened the event, which polars did he use? If it ws the +10% polars, when did he adjust it? I'm wondering because I started with a projected Equator time of 147 hours or so, and now it's more like 160, so I'm just wondering if that's because the weather forecast changed or the polars. No worries either way... I chose to go early to try to post an early "clubhouse lead"... I'm not expecting this run to be competitive unless the whole season is slow.

I confirm. They changed the polars to the Maxi Trimaran, while it used to be the "+10%" version since then.

Hi zezo community, do you know if Gitana 17 boat will appear on our VR map once they will start an attempt? Looks like they are in starting blocks for tomorrow/Saturday, last chance this year.
