Hi,

I'm sailing as skalpel.

Caught up 110 places today. :)

1555

Log on every few hours.

Noticed that some virtual boats have nearly caught the real boats.

But it has made wonder what drives the real sailors.

We set a course and then go to sleep.

They are sailing 24/7.

Hats off to them.

sir, it sounds like we have ourselves a race seeing as im right near you(within 20 spots)But my game wont load at the moment so maybe not. :huh:
damn it sucks when your not able to get online for a few days and your boat is wrecked. was back at like 2699 or something crawling my way back to 2676. i haven't got thru the canary islands yet because of my shipwreck for i don't know how long, i am guessing a few days. damn that really sucked now doing like 9.3 knots upwind with code 0 up.

well if theres anyone around my spot some competition would be helpful.

1297 this morning. Still clawing my way back. It would be a nice goal to get into the top 1000. Long way to go and I am sure a truck load of people will pull out so this should be acheivable. Just need to stay away from the coast lines.

I'm pretty sure it's the middle one (and the left for coming back up). I think the red name signifies that it's the next checkpoint and the red gate is the one we're supposed to go through

DOLDRUMS HERE I COME!!! 824th and climbing...slowly. hopefully i'll be able to keep trucking along a straight line till I wake up tomorrow.

It IS the middle red one. The organisers kindly coloured it for us. Too bad if you are colour blind. Only 79 days to go(maybe longer)

Probably longer with the new polars :(

1604 at last check and climbing. Hoping the wind will turn more easterly so I can head for the gate.

ok so my estimate of 100 places every 3 hrs has stopped, now passing about 70 boats per 12 hrs which is pretty damn good still considering i am going to work every day and sleeping.

i lost 100 spots due to a storm and lightning power surgeing the electricity and recking my computer which now works again :blink: and me not being able to bear away. I say ill be out of the doldrums soon and kite reaching my way to the gate. B)

When People have not mentioned their boat name I have assumed that they are using their SA name. If this is not correct let us all know.

I am trying to create a race within a race so we can all keep track of each other.
