b. DESCRIPTION OF THE OPERATION
The Operation primarily consists of a virtual race in which the Participants can participate alone and/or as a team, under the conditions contained herein. For further details on the rules of sailing of the virtual race, refer to the document appended to the present. In the event of contradiction between the two documents, the present document shall prevail.
As such, the Operation’s Participants can:
(i) register alone (“Solo Formula”) in order to compete in the virtual race with one boat (hereinafter referred to as the “Preliminary Phase”): the winners of the Preliminary Phase will increase their chances of receiving a prize during the lottery organised at the end thereof; and/or
(ii) register with other Participants in order to compete in the virtual race with one boat (hereinafter referred to as the “Team Formula”); and/or
(iii) register alone in order to take part in the random draw without running a boat in the virtual race (hereinafter referred to as the “Random Draw Formula”).
After registering on the Site, each Participant can participate in one or more Formulas.
i. SOLO FORMULA
(i.1.) Solo Formula contest rules
At the end of the Preliminary Phase, a random draw is held for all Participants in the Solo Formula (hereinafter “Phase 2”).
(i.1.1.) Preliminary Phase specific rules
In this phase, Participants take part in the virtual race by themselves. Each registered Participant can take part in the Solo Formula a maximum of three times.
Participants can launch their boats at any time during the period of the virtual race, which runs from 11 AM [TU + 1h] on 19 January 2019 to 31 August 2019. However, they must ensure that their boat crosses the finishing line before 11:59 PM UT + 1h on 31 August 2019
Participants must strive to complete the virtual race in the best possible time.
The three Participants with the best times will find themselves on the podium of the Solo Formula.
(i.1.2.) Rules specific to Phase 2 of the Solo Formula
Participants registered for the Solo Formula but who fail to participate – i.e. do not launch a boat – and/or who do not cross the finishing line of the virtual race before 11:59 PM UT + 1h on 31 August 2019, will have their participation in the Phase 2 lottery invalidated. Accordingly, there will be no possibility of receiving any prize in connection with the Solo Formula.
A single entry per Participant will be included in the Phase 2 random draw. As such, only the Participant’s best time will be taken into account in Phase 2, which will also serve to determine the conditions of this participation (see below).
The three Solo Formula Participants with the best times during the Preliminary Phase will improve their chances of winning the prize during Phase 2 in the following manner:
(i) The solo Participant with the best score (hereinafter the “Winning Participant”) will have a fifty (50) percent better chance;
Explanation: The coefficient of the number of chances is calculated on the number of participants who paid to register. Say, for example, that 100 contestants take part. The draw will be done as follows: 100 tickets will be present in an urn representing 1 contestant each. The record winner will see his representation in the urn increased by 50% or 49 additional tickets since he is already present once. The principle is the same for the second and third with corresponding coefficients.
(ii) The solo Participant with the second best score will have a twenty (20) percent better chance;
(iii) The solo Participant with the third best score will have a ten (10) percent better chance.
For the other Participants, their chance of winning the Solo Formula prize remains unchanged.
(i.2) Solo Formula prize
The prize awarded by random draw in connection with the Solo Formula is a catamaran valued at three hundred
thousand euros, tax incl. (€300,000).
Should the Winning Participant’s entry not be drawn during the lottery held at the end of Phase 2, this person will receive a consolation prize consisting of a cabin cruise valued at three thousand three cents euros, tax incl. (€3,300). The cruise must be taken within a time limit of three hundred and sixty-five days as of the awarding of the prize, otherwise the winner will no longer have access to the prize.
