This is the last year setup.

But the current boat is still unknown.

ok thank you, maybe a maxi trimaran.

It's a monohull maxi 100.

About 10% slower than last year's crewed maxi trimaran in winds less than 20 kts, and then much slower in higher winds.

The event indeed closes after 65 days, and it will be difficult to finish a run in under 33 days in this boat. So... it will be unlikely to finish two runs, and even if it's possible, you'll have to start the second run immediately after finishing the first, without waiting for good timing. So the smart strategy is to wait as much as a month to find a start you're happy with (but probably start by the end of August). OR, plan that you'll hit the "return to port" button and pay 1,000 credits to do so, if your first attempt doesn't look good.

I'll probably start soon anyway, just to see if I can finish two runs. I'm weird that way.

Edit: Nope. Can't make myself click the "Start" button. Not in 2 kts when it'll be a lot better by Sunday. I'll be kicking myself if the guys who slog out a tough start get a great ride up the Pacific in two weeks, but I'm gonna wait. It means two finishes will be almost impossible, but so be it.

let's try to "click on the start button":) but i agree 2 knots is not fun at all... Have a good race though

Cvetan, a minor suggestion... When one clicks on a time in the predicted times table, the default destination is SF... so to get a useable routing, you then have to tell it to go to Pedras or Horn. Could you please make Pedras or Horn the default destination?

Thanks. Fixed.

Guys, many thanks for your comments/suggestions! It was very useful to read them! I would like to have two rounds. Thus, "I clicked on the start button" but, with 8 knots! ;) I think that I'll pay 1.000 credits if there will be better conditions. Let's see!
