Sloop Race!!!!

Sloop Race




Neptunes is holding a sloop race that will take place on October 1st at 9PM game time. This event is not just for captains as they will need crews to help them as well. We hope that you can make it to this epic event.



Rules

Each sloop will start as Sakejima Island, with at least 5 people on board, and their captains jobbed into Neptunes. When GO!!!! is announced the captains will leave port and race around the entire ocean (all arches) going to different checkpoints and picking up commodities at each one. There is NO PVP allowed and will result in disqualification. The first team back to Sakejima with all the items wins. The top three teams will job a officer of Neptunes to their crew as they finish so that their vessel log can be checked to ensure that they didn't cheat. Crews can enter more than one team but each team must have at least 5 people on board to start the race and may finish with 3 or more. You are allowed to job during the race. There will be an entry fee of 15k which is payable to Missdee, Soccerlemon or Greatjim anytime up to 1 hour before the race.

Checkpoints

There will be many checkpoints so be prepared to sail to every corner of the map. At each checkpoint you will port and a send a tell to the officer in charge of that point. They will then transfer a item to your ship and you will set off for the next checkpoint. Every once in a while we will announce in crew chat what checkpoint the leader just completed so that you can get an idea of how far behind you are :)


Prizes

1st Place - Ancient Sloop

2nd Place - Cursed Sloop

3rd Place - Painted Sloop (Painted Neptunes colors)

There will be extra prizes awarded for things like coolest sloop entered and other mystery categories.


Charts

We will provide charting from place to place but this may slow you down as we have other things to do as well. If you can get your own charts that would be faster. Hint: ( You will need to cross the cabo de hornos gap)

Re: Sloop Race!!!!

This is a great idea, I want to thank all the Neptunes for all their hard work.

But in order to make this as entertaining as possible, we need a lot of participants, so everyone reading this post, tell your hearties about this :D
