I signed up too and I love it! There is now 200 000 people playing! I started a small community on thevirtualsailor_com Come and say hi!!! I would love to debate the different strategies to go across the indian ocean!

All virtualregatta lovers, see you soon!

Thanks for checking it out! At the bottom left of the page, there is a dropdown menu that says "francais". You can switch that to "English". And also, half the forums are in English, the other in French... It is still under constuction though... I hope to see you on thevirtualsailor_com soon!

I'm racing as ClearView. It's fun, there are a few local sailors (and stinkpotters) I know doing it, and we have a great time 'competing' and congratulating each other on successful and commiserating with each other on failed strategies.

Seems almost all of my stratagies are failing lately :)

I just signed up yesterday

Just signed up yesterday -- well over 200K sailors! Passing derilct boats (contestants who aren't following closely enough to change sails and course) offers enough positive reinforcement to make even late entry worthwhile. I am now down to place number 188716! If I can figure out how to set a decent course for the sleeping hours, I see 170's by this time tomorrow night.

I don't like to brag (okay, I do, but it's in poor taste to pretend otherwise, but it's just so much work to make it sound like you're not bragging) but I started 3 days late at 50 some-odd thousandth, and am now down to ~6 thousandth.

I'm hoping to finish in the top 100 and have been hesitant to add anyone from SailNet lest I dash their hopes of winning, as they watch the miles it will take to catch up to me keep growing.

Ah, screw it. Everyone needs a goal to shoot for. I'm adding fellow SailNetters.

Well geeze, if I'da started only 50,000 off the lead, I might have a shot at the top hundred too! Ya ain't the only one around here who can brag ya know . . . they don't call me blowinstink for nothin'! Good luck to you. What's your virtual vessel name?
