Vendee Globe - YB tracking - race name for download

What is the race name for YB Tracking for Vendee Globe?  I would have thought it would be "vg2020" but does not seem to work..

thanks

Peter,
I think we had this question a few years ago and the answer is that although the boats carry YB and a spare, the link is private to the competitors.  On the YB website you will notice that although the race is listed it is greyed out and not active to a rollover.
Too bad because it's a great way to 'practice' with the Exp tools for YB.
Cheers,
Ernie

Re: Vendee Globe - YB tracking - race name for download

there is an excel download somewhere on the vendee stite.

it would probably be possible for exp to read that for manual import  - it's not one of the currently accepted formats, so Nick would have to do some work.

alternatively, someone could write a script that inputs the excel file and outputs one of the accept formats

does anyone have any polars for a foiling imoca?

what is the game using?

the excel position file download is at the top of the ranking page

thanks

i picked all the fastest options, and the top BSP is 23kts, so i think they are a bit slow

i will probably make an exp version and see what they look like

I would second the vote for an easy way to import VG2020 pos reps into EXP.
