Thread: Delayed Start

    Delayed Start

    How do you have a delayed start in Regattas if you're a Co-op leader? Just curious

    Delayed start simply means that no one in your co-op starts a task until a later time.

    Regatta starts at 9am BST. You may decide to delay starting for two hours, so you need to make sure that no one in your co-op takes a task before 11am BST, although you can still dump tasks off the main board before then.

    Rank in co-op is irrelevant. Just, no one starts a task.

    All co op members need to agree on the delay start time. Be it 1, 2, 4, 12 hours later. Regatta starts once first task chosen.

    I race solo. For the current race I delayed 35 hours in a very very futile attempt to fill my taskboard with 135 tasks. When I joined a race number one had already scored 1755. Now three hours later number one is done with a perfect score. Wow! Shouldn’t I have been placed in a new race not one that has obviously been started for a while?

    We delayed our start by a few hours. Was only team for awhile. Now a second team has joined us. We just know they will move us to a full race of 13 teams but when is our big question...probably a couple hours before end of race.

    Maybe your 1,st place team started at same time as you ( with lots of tcash to spend). They never have given us clear answers on team pairing.

    How long can a team delay the start of a race while they are dumping? Is there a time restriction before they can't enter the race?

    The limit is 5 hours before the end of the regatta.

    Hi Cathy, I have questions:
    If you race solo, did you need to make co-op first or just start take a regatta task?
