    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    I would have though that in 1968, hailing a passing ship for the ship's position was perfectly acceptable and common practice. OTOH, hailing the passing vessel and asking for the hailer's AIS position is possibly a different matter.

    They should really do the in-ports in the traditional craft for the venue: Newport : 12m Cardiff : Coracles Hague : Lee-board barges Hong Kong : Junks Melbourne : 18 foot skiffs Please fill in the gaps.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Do the maths. Almost a mile downwind every two minutes. The time it takes to get crew on deck, get the FR0 down, get into upwind mode. Then tack upwind. The causality is at least unconscious before you're even back to the MOB point.

    My sympathies with Dee, polluting one's tea with chocolate is unforgivable. Eviction at Point Nemo seems like a suitable punishment.
