    I stand corrected. Forgot that Bestaven had the extra 15 minutes. The idea that 15 mins of corrected time might make the difference is mind-blowing.

    So if I'm reading that right, he's projecting Boris, Yannick and Charlie on the podium, all within an hour on corrected time? Wow.

    If I recall, the IMOCAs need high tide to get up the channel into Les Sables. So I wonder if the first finisher will have to wait for tide, and the first few finishers would go up the channel in procession. Probably not very likely, but it would be pretty awesome if it happens.

    Hey Guys, Been away for a while - how's it going round here? [scans posts] [heads back to Vendee Globe thread]

    Let's see whether I have an extra 2.7 million Euro's around here somewhere. [checks under couch cushions] Nope.

    Speaking of fickle pleasure or pain, it appears she went to take a nap on a stack of sails and it turned out there was a dead man-o-war lurking in there.

    Really noticeable though, how everyone else is bearing east. Boris particularly.

    You know... [chewing] ... this crow is actually pretty tasty, once you get used to it.

    Traffic jam probably isn't the best metaphor - it's more like taking the Porshe on the Paris-Dakar rally.

    I just meant I wasn't going to diverge into becoming a film critic (X type of video is 'good', or 'bad'). You're right - I simply hadn't thought of the GoPro option till others mentioned it.

    Point taken about the go pro - I have to admit I hadn't thought of that when I commented. That may be in part because I rarely find fixed shot go pro footage terribly compelling, though in this case it might be. But this isn't the venue for film criticism (cf Girl with a Patreon), so I'll let it go at that.

    A vid seems a bit of a stretch. If I were hanging off the transom in 6 degree water on the approach to Cape Horn, trying to fix my boat, I'm inclined to think videography would be well down my priority list. Edit: Of course, I should add that if by some bizarre confluence of inexplicable events I actually crossed the start line of the VG, I would have browned my trousers in the first cold front off Finisterre, taken one look at Theta, and chickened out in Lisbon with my tail between my legs. So what do I know? Go Pip!

    Almost exactly equal to their relative abundance among the entrants (14/33, I think)

    No, not that one. The one where they use financial services.

    As long as we're having fun with auto-translate, I have to wonder: Hornier than what? He's been in a cold shower for the last several weeks.
