As the topic suggests, anyone who finds a Social Chest / Royal Convoy / White Whale, if you would be so kind as to post:
1) The location on your map 1a) The specific location if on an island 2) The time you found it 2a) The timezone you are located in
This way, we can synchronize all of these finds more easily across the AC community without adding thousands of friends. Let's get to it! (Even in a worst case scenario where these are not synchronized, we can at least document spawn locations for everyone to see!)

And FYI for everyone, here are the confirmed White Whale Spawn locations:
638, 901 - North of Abaco Island 658, 831 - South east of Floridian penninsula 950, 547 - North east of Great Inagua 880, 427 - North of Tortuga, South of Great Inagua, East of Punta Guarico 677, 320 - South of Cumberland Bay
The Coords for the Chests/Royal Convoys are still in progress.
NB: the convoy did not highlight itself as a blue social convoy until i fired upon it, i only found out it was there because i was looking for ships with metal and noticed this particular one was worth 10,000R.
STILL FOUND 0 CHESTS
Oh and the white whale seems to appear fine for me but it won't count as a kill for the Abstergo challenge "kill each type of sea animal" even after killing 6 of them (and its defiantly the white whale missing as it said 5 done outta 6 before my first white whale and i redid all the rest to be sure)
So I think I have a theory. I think when a social event posts up, they maybe based on different time zones? Meaning like the one that Zeldaocto posted at 6:00 PM EST, I was able to find that RIGHT away cause I am in EST time zone as well but the other ones posted, have had no luck at all in running into those. So maybe Ubisoft is doing them by time zones maybe?
