    what is it?

    Production is scheduled to start in summer 2018. Their Facebook page indicates a plan to have a real boat ready for the Amsterdam Boat Show in March.  A pretty ambitious plan.

    android app malfunction. It was set correctly with the boat at 145 TWA and I come back and the boat is going the opposite direction at 0 knots. Can't get a break. More opportunity to work back up.

    Zezo says the same for me back here. Hard to believe it is worth the extra miles to go back north.

    Not to happy dropping from 7th to 11th on the list. Trying to remedy that by getting to the inside on the upcoming header. I like the distance to leader delta. It's useful. Thanks.

    I wish it was something as interesting as all that. Instead it was one to many conversations at a stupid office party. Wasn't even talking to anyone I would want to take on a boat, much less entertain below. Now I will pay the price for being cheerfully collegiate and demonstrating my...

    Last night zezo wanted me to gybe every two hours or so. I opted for one long reach AWAY from the IEZ and slept like a rock.

    Karma! That is what I get for joking with Rainbow Spirit about testing the limit. I failed to knock on wood after being a smart-ass. I only went a few miles in and I didn't see any speed drop.

    The tough part over the next few days is staying in phase and in pressure while trying to work and sleep. My biggest fear is coming back to the computer and finding I left the TWA on while lifted and sailed into the exclusion zone.

    Been watching you guys build separation daily since the doldrums. Hoping to get a little of that back.

    I'm in. Forgot to join up and set up pre start so I had to start from the pilot boat last night with all the "maintenance." Is there a way to tell whether a nearby boat has options on this new interface? Is there a "no options" group forming? I am still on the fence as to how much moola to...

    Hang in there. Right now the coast looks good but that can change big time. The next few days will be a crap shoot.

    I watch them as a source of long term knowledge about the best route. I don't have time to research passage literature. You do have to be mindful that they are working with current problems we don't have. Great job, by the way of cutting the corner on the northern route. You and CYCYknot cut...
