    I use my desktop when I'm at work, when I'm not at work I'm on the mobile.
  2. My favourite beach here, can only get here by hiking or by boat, but the holding is crap, so I have never stopped here on a boat.

    Mars landing today

    Very cool stuff, although 2:19 to 2:27 reminded me of some of the spinnaker retrievals I have been involved with

    RORC 600 - Virtual Race

    Good morning, All but two have finished and Screaming Eagle does not seem to intend on finishing. As pointed out yesterday it was very close at the pointy end - @Gufmiester took the win by 10 secs over @Your Mom with @Shockwave only 59 secs further back. All of them finished in the top 20. Bloody well played. For myself, I managed to achieve one of my goals which was to finish ahead of @daan62 (who did not play) but I failed on my other goal to only hit one island, I hit two, and the quite spectacular overstand on Mark 2 was equally frustrating. I have done quite a lot of these races and the inaccuracy of the programmations was something new and annoying. I went from what I guess would have been a reasonable position approaching Mark 2 to 53,xxx, then back up to 6,xxx before hitting Island No 9 and back to 25,xxx and finally finishing at 17,283rd. This experience has made me very unwilling to pay for a full pack in the future. Especially for a coastal race. Anyway, thanks for putting some fun into proceedings. 26-Feb 02:00UTC Place SA Name Boat Name DTF Days Hours Minutes Seconds Overall Finish 1 Gufmiester BigBalls 2 12 56 27 11 2 Your Mom Your Mom SA 10 12 3 Blue Mountain YC shockwave11 1 9 16 4 viper43 viper640 1 5 56 490 5 Jean-Baptiste HelloKitty-Iceland 1 38 1 808 6 Laser1 Hotfoot 1 47 45 910 7 Flaming Flaming 1 52 48 969 8 mred mistered 2 23 46 1,328 9 Marty6 Cambodunum_VSC 4 9 26 3,073 10 Headntac Ryoochi 5 1 20 4,561 11 Shorthanded Shorty 5 6 27 4,732 12 mad Sticky 8 22 21 13,421 13 Kapt'n Kirk prowler_1-SA 8 35 1 14,117 14 Tunnel Rat Mongrel 9 37 5 17,283 15 SteveJH Stephen_1987 9 38 18 17,354 16 Wet Hog WetHog-SA 10 21 20 19,113 17 Iced Tea rule69 11 29 27 21,468 18 Bump-n-Grind SA_Bump 15 8 26 26,720 19 Hike, Bitches HikeBitches 17 3 10 28,757 20 PB2207 Chi-2207 20 52 19 32,026 21 chuso007 Lateral Festivis 20.57 22 RIGO Screaming_Eagle 469.8

    ..... and Big Balls sneaks it from Your Mom by 10 secs after 2.5 days of racing. Good battle.

    Hey @chuso007 it looks like you did your gybe set a bit prematurely. Trusting the programmations?

    I think our wives would get on well, although yours seems on the gentle side!

    @Point Break I hope everything sorts itself out rapidly........ being hooked up to some industrial pumping equipment may interfere with you finishing that book!

    Good morning. First up, my apologies to @mred, I missed your initial post. You have been added. Second, BUGGER! Third, what did I say about those f@%#ing programmations. I have never known them to be so far off. Ho hum. Way points on near pointy bits from now on. Fourth, even though I was asleep, I am sure that Shorty stuck his elbows out and gave me a nudge. Fifth (and least important ) - it is damn close at the front - three boats within 0.06, ranked 11th to 17th OA. Well sailed gents! Rankings - most people should be finished by tomorrow, so I will give a wrap up then. 25-Feb 00:30UTC Place SA Name Boat Name Dist to Leader 1 Blue Mountain YC shockwave11 27.66 2 Your Mom Your Mom SA 0.02 3 Gufmiester BigBalls 0.06 4 viper43 viper640 4.68 5 Jean-Baptiste HelloKitty-Iceland 10.1 6 Laser1 Hotfoot 13.3 7 Flaming Flaming 13.7 8 mred mistered 21.7 9 Marty6 Cambodunum_VSC 43.7 10 Headntac Ryoochi 52 11 Shorthanded Shorty 54.5 12 chuso007 Lateral Festivis 83.2 13 mad Sticky 83.4 14 Kapt'n Kirk prowler_1-SA 100.5 15 SteveJH Stephen_1987 106.7 16 Bump-n-Grind SA_Bump 113.6 17 Wet Hog WetHog-SA 123.1 18 Tunnel Rat Mongrel 125.3 19 Iced Tea rule69 141.5 20 PB2207 Chi-2207 148.8 21 Hike, Bitches HikeBitches 180.2 22 RIGO Screaming_Eagle 462.7

    Hi, I'm not sure what you mean, it takes about 3 mins to copy the distances into a spreadsheet - probably takes more time to write the bullshit.......... Is that what you meant?

    Good morning, my tack and bear away at St Maarten seemed to work OK, I managed not to hit anything or overstand anything during the night, so I consider that a success. Shockwave, Big Balls and Mom seem to be joined at the hip and are very close to the overall lead. I think the outstanding play of the race so far has been Iced Tea's course around St Barth and St Maarten which looks like random pinball, but she hasn't gone aground! How have you managed that? Anyway - here are the rankings. There will be one tomorrow and probably a final wrap up on Friday. 24-Feb 01:00UTC Place SA Name Boat Name Dist to Leader 1 Blue Mountain YC shockwave11 253.79 2 Gufmiester BigBalls 0.31 3 Your Mom Your Mom SA 0.57 4 Jean-Baptiste HelloKitty-Iceland 4.09 5 Flaming Flaming 5.74 6 viper43 viper640 6.48 7 Laser1 Hotfoot 7.43 8 Marty6 Cambodunum_VSC 23.1 9 Shorthanded Shorty 28 10 Headntac Ryoochi 34.3 11 Tunnel Rat Mongrel 35.8 12 Wet Hog WetHog-SA 45.9 13 chuso007 Lateral Festivis 55.4 14 mad Sticky 56.6 15 Kapt'n Kirk prowler_1-SA 70.7 16 Bump-n-Grind SA_Bump 75.5 17 SteveJH Stephen_1987 82.3 18 PB2207 Chi-2207 101.3 19 Iced Tea rule69 114.8 20 Hike, Bitches HikeBitches 142.1 21 RIGO Screaming_Eagle 236.6

    Well, I’ve overtaken about 40,000 since I woke up and only bounced off one island. I have now programmed some waypoints as I have completely lost confidence in the programmation. Let’s see where I wake up. Top marks to Rule69 and Ryoochi for inventive courses, exploring the bits that many of us miss.
