Went back into the archives to remember where I finished in 2012 -
“Temporary finish 549th - 88D 13H 15M - I crack a beer to celebrate. ahh...
To those still out there sailing along keep it coming. I made it to the end of this adventure with only the tools provided by our Evil French Masters and a little Luck... OK, full disclosure... The last 5000 miles I had a Text Pact with Sparx, the fine gentleman he is, where he would accept my occasional Full on Drunk Text asking for a wake up call... Even then it did not work all the time and I have woke hours later loosing spots by the 100’s. No weather routing, no polars, no fancy overlays. This game took a ton of time but it was worth suffering with you all.”
Now I have a reference tome for this run.
