Crimson Ocean Sloop Races

== This is the official Shadow Guardians Sloop Race Championship thread ==


Note, this is on the crimson Ocean!


== Who? ==

The races are open to anybody with their own sloop.
Members of the Shadow Guardians have a cheaper entrance fee


==How?==

In order to enter, send a /tell to Okaw with your vessel name and the name of your partner (if you have one) before 11:45AM pirate time on the day of the race. Once you have been acknowledged, you must then pay the entry fee, somebody involved with the race will the ask to whisk aboard, you then order them to navigate in order to chart you.

At Noon game time, a starting signal will be made across the /fo chat channel, and individually by /tell to any boats not in the flag.

Upon this signal, all ships may then deport. I f any ship departs before this signal, a false start will be called and the race will be restarted.

If a second false start is made, the offending boat will be penalized.


==Rules==

1.1 Only Sloops are permitted to be used
1.2 However any subclass of sloop may be used
2.1 Team may consist of no more than 2 players
2.2 However, as many swabbies as the game permits shall be allowed
3. All entries MUST be received 15 minutes before the published start time
4. All sloops must be in port at the starting island 10 minutes before the published start time
5.1 How you configure your voyage setting is up to you
5.2 However no boat shall use the swabbie transport voyage configuration
6.1 Boats MUST pass each island in published race (no cutting corners)
6.2 Violation of this rule WILL result in Disqualification
7. The first boat to put into port and disappear from the league point shall be declared the winner.
8. An island judge shall be in place at each island to ensure that all vessels pass that island
9. The race shall continue even if a boat is engaged in battle. This comes under the tactics of the race
10. Prizes shall be awarded to the boats that come 1st and 2nd of each race. The final prize shall be awarded to the team, who, at the end of the series, has scored the fewest points
11. Entry Fee will be 300poe for Shadow Guardians Members, and 500 Poe for anyone else
12. scoring is as follows:

1st - 1 point
2nd - 2 points
3rd - 3 points
4th - 4 points
etc.

Any boat that does not start or finish, shall be scored points equal to the number of competitors in that race, plus 1


==Schedule==

Race 1
Saturday 4th September
Noon Game time,
Sakejima-Terra-Prolix Perlieu-Lima

Race 2
Saturday 18th September
Noon Game time
Lima-Lonelywood Lagoon- Corona Reef

Race 3

The race organizer reserves the right to alter or edit this schedule with no warning.
Good Luck!

Re: Crimson Ocean Sloop Races

Great, as of reading this post, that makes 3 entrants. So we have enough competitors.

This is the only thing that I am concerned about. Couldnt you job all of the contestents who are leading a ship into the same crew and then give the start message?

With your current system, your whole flag would start first and there may be people starting when a ship gets to the first league.

Yeah, after I made that post the thought did occur to me, the original plan was to have a few alts logged in and then press enter at the same time on two different keyboards, but the jobbing solution seems a bit more simple, so why didn't I think of that.

Hope the turnout is great!

Re: Crimson Ocean Sloop Races

Next Race Sept 18!
Noon Game Time

Did we have fun or what!

Charting was available. Questions were answered in the pre-race meet.

And I won the Booby Prize for getting caught by everyone elses spawns ( spawns were so confused cause their targets were out of the route before they could spawn {just teasing})and limping into the 3rd island's port well after the race ended.
Yeah for fun!

Looking forward to the Next one!

Come Join Us!

Re: Crimson Ocean Sloop Races

Ok, as previously mentioned, but I will mention it anyway just for emphasis

THERE IS NO RACE THIS SATURDAY

(This is because of a real life boat race)

and I will draw your attention to the clause near the end of the notice

 
The organiser reserves the right to change or alter the schedule without notice


I may yet have to CANCEL or POSTPONE the race on the 18th of September, due to an actual event in real life that I am involved in (for anyone interested the event in question is another real life Boat race)

But at the moment, everything will go ahead as planned.

Re: Crimson Ocean Sloop Races

Okay, Sorry about having to cancel races, but EVERYTHING IS ALL SET TO GO for this saturdays race, for anyone interested, it is Lima island to Corona Reef, via Lonelywood Lagoon AND BACK AGAIN, the race will follow the same format as the last one, and for anyone interested, the total length is 18 Leagues.

Fastest theoretical time is as follows:
please note this time is not actually possible as it would require deporting and being at full speed instantly

Lima to Lonelywood Lagoon
4x diagonal leagues = 4 minutes
3x three seconds at each league point = 9 secs
TOTAL - 4 MINUTES 9 SECONDS

Lonelywood Lagoon to Corona Reef
3x diagonal leagues = 3 minutes
2x Horizontal Leagues = 2 minutes 48 seconds
4x 3 seconds at LPs = 12 seconds

TOTAL - 6 MINUTES 0 SECONDS

Plus 3 seconds at Lonelywood Lagoon

HALFWAY TOTAL 10 MINUTES 12 SECONDS

plus the theoretical 3 seconds to rechart back again and set sail

plus return Journey

GRAND TOTAL 20 MINUTES 27 SECONDS
