    Slightly later than usual today - 02:30 UTC. Half the SA fleet finished. Well played to Marty6 - going that far north wasn't looking good for a long time. I won't post anything tomorrow as I will be going some real life sailing. I'll post final placing on Monday. Enjoy your weekend. EDIT - this is time behind our leader - Cambodunum. That's what is displayed in the ranking page and I can't access actual finish times.

    Hello, Ranking from 00:30UTC. I'm not sure what happened to Guf round the back of the island as I couldn't see from my position (in bed) I suspect foul play on the part of the island jumping out and tripping him over. These islands can be absolute bastards! Mr Turkey, you seemed to manage to gybe, but the distance is interesting now.

    What do you think the best tactic round the leeward side of Guadalope will be? I can't see any advantage in going wide. I think hugging the coastline and then tacking on the lay line to the finish will be the way to go. Any dissenters?

    01:30UTC rankings Now it a straight line drag race for those to the west, while those to the east still need to pick their gybes. Not too many passing lanes left though (especially if you are 179Nm behind the next guy ahead).

    It is a pain. Feel free to embellish my ranking..... 01:00UTC I'm happy being west and in the NW airflow. Most of the easterners look as though it is going to be painful getting through the high.
