I'm racing this! Virtually, That is!
Here's the real race.
There are roughly 20,000 virtual skippers racing. I'm in 6,083rd at the moment, and falling back precipitously. Don't have the old fire in the belly, I guess. Too much going on in my real life!
This (to the right) is the latest shot taken a few minutes ago at 06:20 on 19-Oct.
I have moved up overnight into three digits (624th). Open Container III is featured as the large blue boat at the bottom of the screen.
Belladonna is the black yacht which has just flopped over on to starboard gybe in the upper right hand corner.
Gilliano is the black yacht in the left hand corner, close to the line that represents great circle route to the finish line.
I have passed Belladona as result of having gifted myself of extra electronics and better sails.
