  1. Imo they are headed back. Heading 325... North west. 20 to 22 knots of speed.

  3. Its probably this one. This is the data of that ship, from AIS { "LAT": "-40.92193", "LON": "54.69026", "SPEED": "10.1", "COURSE": "289", "HEADING": "289", "TYPE_IMG": "3", "TYPE_NAME": "Tugs & Special Craft", "STATUS_NAME": "Underway using Engine" }
  4. from here https://www.alexthomsonracing.com/blog/2020/12/04/alex-thomson-arrives-safely-to-cape-town-and-formally-retires-from-the-vendee-globe/ That's the most hopeful sign so far ATR will be back in the next VG: "WE" Been wondering about all the reflections and conversations Alex has been having this last week.  Dee's comments on today's EN Live will be watch worthy That is indeed a nice catch. Didnt notice it but as you say it seems likely that all the team is on the same page

  6. This photo makes me so sad actually....
  7. AT will be in cape town harbor soon. Hopefully he moors somewhere accessible. If that the case, it would be cool if there is somebody in the forum based in cape town who can take some photos of the rudder area.
  8. well, my guess, since they cannot just track every single bit of ice, is that they just run some models, and take a probabilistic approach. So something like IEZ = "areas where the number of ice cubes with significant dimension bigger than x per sq km is more than 0.0something"+ some smoothing. At least, this is i would approach the problem personally.
  9. I did something about this in the first week of the race or so. The code+raw data+results is posted here
  10. Yea, thats a good question. For what I see, they often do not carry too much spare food. Also true that if Kevin cannot do anything on board Yes we Cam, he will probably be the first to be considerate with Le cam's food. Imo he will be hungry all the time in this coming week.
  11. Vendee globe in 2020, that's what you get! Charal damage Alex damage (more important than the others, actually, but i am a fanboy) PRB sunk (probably, not confirmed) For sure, the south atlantic is coursed! Now what? Jokes apart, i guess it could have happened in much worst positions. At least they are "close" to cape town.
  12. Here https://www.alexthomsonracing.com/the-hub/ but it was there from before. They forgot to update,probably. Officially they are still in, until they abandon in cape town.

  14. I remember watching that. It was really an amazing effort from him. If i remember correctly, afterwards its keel nearly fell of, and he did from brasil to the finish with the keel risking to fall off at any time.
  15. So, what a better time for a new position update than this? starting run 2020-11-27 23:19:40.888652 LINKED------->LAT: -38.2150 LON: -17.0211, SPEED: 19.7, HEADING: 99, TIME: 2020-11-27 22:31:00 APIVIA------->LAT: -42.5748 LON: -7.2098, SPEED: 16.7, HEADING: 71, TIME: 2020-11-27 23:09:00 CAM---------->LAT: -36.8717 LON: -12.7323, SPEED: 15.4, HEADING: 102, TIME: 2020-11-27 22:33:00 BOSS--------->LAT: -37.98340 LON: -20.0403, SPEED: 12.1, HEADING: 91, TIME: 2020-11-27 22:55:00 ARKEA-------->LAT: -38.3741 LON: -15.9387, SPEED: 19.2, HEADING: 104, TIME: 2020-11-27
