Solitaire du Figaro
Please someone stop me before I enter another race!
I misread this instruction: I thought this message meant a final decision about restarting will be made at noon-local. I opted for a good night sleep. Boat crashed and I lost 13,500 boats. I am pissed off! So I lost my sleep, too!
This very well may be my last race with MP-VR.
All is forgiven. MP was forced by all of us discontenteds to hold a decent restart. So, I'm hooked again on my addiction to Virtual Regatta.
The shortened course is a drag race under spinnakers to the northern coast of Spain. I'm decently under 1,000 out of 20,000 at the moment. Not many tricks available. But I do have one up my sleeve!
Here is the updated (final) performance chart. The lack of data points reflects the use of up to eight hours of stealth (invisibility) option afforded racers and the melt-down and subsequent re-start of this leg!
Paul Nayard has finished 2nd, only 16 boats behind Deep Fried Turkey.
