    RORC 600 - Virtual Race

    I stuffed up the start badly, started with three programations in, forgot to add new way points before going to work about 6 hours after the start. Remembered at lunchtime and logged in to find myself well north of Anguila in a theoretical 86,000th position. Jumped back to the rescue ship in position 46k, up to 17k now.

    I lost something like 20,000 positions at/just after Cape Horn over Christmas. Went from 19,000 up to about 42,000. Now at 36.8k.

    Cat tails from over the horizon

    Its the same boat. Free Spirit was listed at $175k AUD before being taken off the market. Now renamed and put back on the market.

    I always assumed he was referring to Canada and the other nations of the Empire/Commonwealth. Australia, South Africa, New Zealand etc.

    I'm doing 21.1 knots down the edge of the railway sleepers right now. Probably should alter course slightly.

    Except we turned south way before you did. I think some of us might have a problem over the next few days that we went too far south. Also, my boat doesn't want to go much faster then 22-24kt no matter how much wind there is.

    I'm only ~50nm in front of you, I was going to have to Gybe south in 6-10 hours anyway. Now I can be lazy. Hilariously, even though i'm going due south, i've gained 4k positions in the last hour. I wonder where they are measuring from.

    Now you have me second guessing myself. because if I do the same thing I can be even further south and slightly more ahead. Saying that, i'm also not using Zeze. Edit: Why not? gets me further south into more wind and less miles/degree.

    Sadly I think i'm running down the station platform with the train pulling away in front of me. I don't think I could quite get far enough south in time. The next 6-12 hours will tell the story. In about 6 hours I think i'll start to go a lot more south and hug the line as much as possible.

    Well, i'm slowly slipping backwards in the rankings. Not 100% sure exactly where to go now except keep working my way to the SSE.

    So I stuffed up with my last Gybe, I didn't program it in before I went to bed. And when I got up i'd lost something like 100k positions. I've got some of the positions back now and I don't think i'll have to do much for the next couple of days now unless something changes drastically?

    I'm just working my way through that at the moment, hopefully I don't stuff it up and lose too much time.

    I haven't been able to pick sails since the start, auto-sails appears to be stuck on. Boat is Stephen_1987

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Scallywag has disappeared from the entry list. Its probably not a good look for the Oatley's to enter Wild Oats-XI in the Sydney Hobart, i'm assuming Hamilton Island wouldn't exactly be fully booked at the moment??
