Thank god for this fucking calm - so I didn´t wreck my ship on the african coastline while beeing off the computer for the last 8 hours ;-) Wind dropped down to 2,3 kns, still coming out 101. I set heading to 332 and will gype again when I am north of the strait for crossing the Gibraltar gate. Ranking up to 848is anyone else stuck in the dead calm before gibraltar? it's not doing good things for my sanity.
I thought that the weather was updated every 3 hrs - set course after the update and should be good for three hours. But I've come back to sheets flapping as breeze rotates. Anyone have the skinny on how often or what tiggers the weather updates?
How come I can't see any of you on my map? I joined the race 2 days ago and I'm ranked 1971 and I'm about to pass through Gibraltar. My boat is 172963 let me know if you guys see me on the map
Im about 1444th or something now but im into ocean with space all around me! i had a horrible time around gilbratar and hit the land twice. :blink:
Glad to see there is no breezewell i got through gilbratar ok, only wrecked 2 or 3 times in the med, now am 1459 (i just caught up 12 places in 10mins), theres about 100 boats between me and what appears to be the next boat infront of me (couilledours) and there is 46 boats between me and the boat that is displayed next behind me (sydney) so there are a shitload of competitors in my area.doing 5.9 or so in 2.1 breeze is good i think.
