    Cool story~~~~

    Update 6 out now

    Cool story~~~~

    4 out so far. All diving with assistance. Huge respect for the kids to do that and even more for the divers to train and then take them through a nasty dive. Hope for more to be out soon.

    Is it only me, or is anyone else struggling to get the wind overlay to work on the tracker? Are there any hidden secrets?

    Dive Destinations

    Agree with Palau as a great destination - as well as the reefs there are lots of wrecks to keep the variety going. I dove Apo Reef in the Philippines last year and it was wonderful, Tubbataha Reef is supposed to be even better. Both of these would be best from a liveaboard. Manado on Suluwesi had amazing amounts of wildlife, but it was like diving in a washing machine - the currents were all over the place and powerful, not for the faint hearted. Some of my mates did a liveaboard from Bali to Komodo and back on a 120' sailing schooner, with a huge range of diving conditions and a day on Komodo, they actually got chased off a beach by one of the dragons. It is a trip I really regret not doing. On my list is Yap to dive with the mantas. None of the diving I've done in Thailand makes me want to go back. Let me know if you want more details.

    Section 2.5 in its entirety: EDIT - I have highlighted some bits in bold which could really screw with the sailors heads if they have to loiter for days serving penalties for faulty sextanting rather than just getting home.

    Asian female driver

    Indonesia is located on 4 different tectonic plates (although two of them are oceanic plates, so I'm not sure that they count). BTW - a much better thread drift than the one that Mid tried to start......

    The only country that is not completely in Asia in that list is Turkey...just saying FTFY

    I have a theory that the Grim Sweeper is fictitious. I don't think anyone has ever been "swept". I wait to be proved wrong.

    One last question, how can I check the overall ranking in a particular country? I'd like to see if HKG1203 and I are still ranked 1/2 in HKG. Thanks

    The following list is all those who got a podium place in one of the legs. Racers that came first are in bold, multiple firsts get a *. I winder what it was that awkward turtle took after leg 6 - it would have been fun to watch the head to head with Mom if he had been performing at that level all the way through.

    Congratulations to all who have finished so far. Looking at the tracker - TRAK Kayaks has ended up in a strange location. I can't see a way out of Drury Inlet, it is perplexing to paddle that far into an inlet that you can't get out of.

    Hello, Firstly your thanks are appreciated, it is not that difficult to do the scoring and it has been a pleasure to be working with Shorty on this, he makes it easy. Second, thank all of you lot for making this thread such a lovely place to spend some time. On to the scoring. This leg closes in about 19 hours, and I really don't think anyone else is going to finish before then, so I am taking these results to be final. I will update them if more data is posted.
