    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Good morning. Blitzquart has done a nice job of crossing the fleet and gybing ahead and to leeward of the main gang. However hats off to Spadadua who properly committed to the southern routing and is currently another 50Nm ahead of Blitzquart and travelling a knot faster, but probably with less VMG. I am sad that HKG1203 has abandoned the party and parked on Nova Scotia. Rankings from 01:00UTC.

    Sorry everyone. Bank holiday here, real life playing overtook virtual playing. (See HKG1203's course for confirmation). I WILL be on schedule tomorrow morning, although my head may be a tad sore...... Good night

    How does IRC treat leech length?

    It should be possible if they have lowered the clew, but got less roach in the sail......maybe
  5. "If there hadn't been a Scallywag in the 7, the team would have been disappointed." Brilliant!

    I'd love to see him, but here are the remaining dates and locations. I wouldn't say it was a world tour, more like a "USA and limited parts on N Europe" Tour.

    How does IRC treat leech length?

    But it does measure Luff perpendicular, half width, three quarters width and 7/8ths width. All of these will be greater if you have a longer leech. Linky see Section 11.

    Replacing a piece of toe rail

    With only two of you, who was in charge of handing out the beers? Nice job done.
  9. Interesting wording here. I wonder if Bouwe has any thought on this! BTW - The fracas sounds like the police came in and started throwing their weight around, drunk sailors didn't appreciate it and then someone fell over. End of story.

    Exactly what I'm doing. No idea how to do an automatic sorting of series ties according to RRS A8. Anyone have any smart ideas?

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Thanks, I'm doing it on a spreadsheet, but it can work out the discard automatically. The only minor pain is that the discards need to be done manually, but they seem to be getting less, so no problem. I appreciate the thought.

    Shhh, don't tell anyone, but do you think they would notice if I "accidentally" took the discards away? In other news, Leg 8 is now officially finished. Here are the final rankings.
