It's always the end ranking that counts. I screwed up on the C Verde to C of G Hope leg and never recovered enough to make a big difference,,, But,,, I had a goog time trying.
What I failed to mention on my last post was the fact that although good humour and a lot of laughs were shared between the SA crowd, it was amazing to see just how seriously the actual navigation and routing was taken. It really was a serious and a cut throat business at the end of the day. It brought a new meaning to "navigating" on internet.
Exactly what I thought. Before getting into this thread I had the self delusion I was quite good at VR (I was easily in front of my friends and coworkers). You all showed me how much I still have to learn to get to the front of the SA crowd! Thanks everyone.
I agree on all counts. It was good fun but no-one was playing easy. I fell off the back of the leading SA group approaching Gough Is. as we entered the Southern sled-ride when some important maneuvers coincided with a long long-haul flight. Just like in the real race, a day lost proved impossible to recover despite my best efforts. Still happy with the effort though, and boy was that last 36 hours fun! At the end my ranking was the best it had been all race
