Harmony Regatta #1 - Rowboat race - finished!

Recommended Posts

Purebreds H is thankful for all the kind horse buyers that have been supporting us since July. Now it’s time to give some of all that goodwill and silver back to the people! This will be in the form of races, first a modest one, learn some lessons, then return with bigger events!

 

Rowboat race Sunday 6/12 at 19:00 UTC

Edit: this race was moved from Saturday to Sunday because many people are going to slayings on Melody Saturday.

Second place: 5 silver
Third place: 3 silver
Newcomer prize: 3 silver for first boat that is QL20 or lower.

In addition, all the prize winners will be allowed to buy any horses from Purebreds H at half price on this day. The overall winner of the race can buy horses at half price forever!

How do I join?

The race aims to be fair for all, and since QL has great influence on boat speeds, we have had to define a standard of 40 QL being the highest. 

You have two options:

A ) Bring your own rowboat you have imped to as much as 40 QL  
or
B ) Sign up for one of our six QL40 boats. Simply reply to this post that you want to borrow a boat!

Signed up to borrow boats: 1) Yurisa. 2) Overagedbarge. 3) Ostria

 

Rules
1) 40 QL is the highest allowed (40.99 QL is accepted, 41.00 QL is not accepted)
2) No rare boats or runes if those were possible
3) No crew in your boat, one person only
4) No alts, you can only race with one character on the day.

 

Additional remarks:
a) If you get stuck, you are allowed to drag the boat.
b) Claim your standard boat at latest 45 minutes before race start. After that, boats can go to the next people on the list.
c) You can possibly also have your own boat imped to 40 if you arrive hours before the start.

Race course

The starting line is on the East side of Treasure Island next to Purebreds H. From there, row North around Treasure Island, then south all the way through the N14 canal and to the island at Shoalhaven. Row around the island from the north side and then head back through the canal to Treasure Island. Do the opposite of before, curling around the North side of Treasure Island back to the original starting line on the East side.

The duration of the race will be 18-20 minutes.

Thanks for all the interest. From what I have heard, there will be at least 7-8 boats racing tonight, it will be a blast!

The buoys around Shoalhaven island are more of a large ship navigational warning so feel free to ignore them in the rowboats during the race!
