    Cheers for that, 3d 14h 22m since I started ~5h 10m to go, so ~91.5hrs edit: just had a look and you can see other boats times as well, handy feature

    Not sure what my time will be as I've forgotten when I started...haha, not long to the finish now though, should be under 4 days

    The record will go this time, my initial best predict time was 87 hrs, but it the forecast changed so was on 96 when I left, hopefully I should still do it in under 100 though, think the new record will be about 91-92

    Not as much as the Atlantic record I’m on just now, high chance I could be on 150 all the way to the finish!! At least I have some company, though I wish vincer75 would stop sniffing my ass, he’s been right behind me for about 24 hrs, I mustn’t smell too bad yet then

    I went far west, currently in 26,759th place, but happy with my positioning after a shitty start (time zone problem) and my policy of not getting up in the middle of the night to do a gybe, i'm only using credits from other races and didn't have any programming cards. I should jump up quite a few positions today though!!!

    Portable fridge.

    From what i found they were the fridge that was deemed best commercial fridge from geeks who rally know about 12v fridges, there is a company in Aus that will custom make a fridge for your need, but i cant remember the name edit: found it www.norcoast.com.au

    Definitely the most favoured, better than the other big commercial brand which is Waeco, I have neither, I went for a Bushman due to it being the lowest amps draw per day, but if I had the money I'd go for a National Luna.

    I was thinking about that as well, but discounted it when i looked into it

    Well this fucked up my race, lost about 1000 places due to me being in bed asleep and not knowing about the change, I was also a little too close to the wind for a while as I didn't get the programming right, but if I'd been going for the gap I'd have been fine, it is what it is though, which is why I don't pay them money anymore......

    Wasn't going to do this leg as didn't really have the time, but looked at it and thought it's not going to take too much time with long legs of not doing much. A-Squared finished - 4592th - 5593.3Nm - 15d 23h 37m 50s
