If you are not up to racing yourself then you can watch the fun on VR Inshore. The steps are listed above. The only tricky bit is finding the race you want when there are lots of custom ones taking place. The bartley races will always be x/20 where x is the number of people that joined.
There are 3 races each session so you need to select the custom race you want to watch each time. Race 1 opens 5 mins before the start time in the calendar. Then the subsequent ones are roughly 10 mins after the previous one (I usually wait until I have the same number of competitors as the previous race logged on).
So if you are not rigged in time for the 11.00 today then why not log on and watch?
Here is a snapshot of the Virtual Regatta racing on Wednesday evening, last night we got up to 16 on the start line with some great races taking place. If you need to brush up on race tactics then this is a great way to do it.
The racing starts at 18.30 tonight and then 2 sets of races on Saturday and Sunday per the calendar
Here are the scores on the doors so far. Monday was a shocker as the VR server kept crashing out so apologies to those who were frustrated by the whole affair. Tuesday evening was completely different - all 3 races went as planned (and I often put on a bonus fun race in case you hadn't noticed). The bonus race on Tuesday was in the Star class and it was hilarious as it was match racing that seemed to bring out the competitor in everyone - I have never seen such aggressive luffing downwind!
Great to see so many on the virtual water - see you tomorrow at 6.30 for the next instalment.
