Bailiff and Belladonna were nice enough to alert me 30 minutes late that the Clipper race had resumed. At the end of the day, I was proud to have been able to send Bailiff this:
This is the way an ocean race should look: hundreds or thousands of hulls, stretched out, abreast as it were. Open Container III's position is designated with the double gold halo around it. (Representing a Corona, which is the best beer to drink at sea or desk.) Bailiff, No Going Back, (thanks for this site, Paula!), Contiguous, and Belladonna can be located. (Sorry for the inadvertent abreviations - I'm still learning how to do this!)
I had a good day, yesterday, (13 August)!
- Down to 87th place in the Clipper Race. (Out of 16,283?)Probably very short-lived!
- First place on the first day of my English Premier League Rotisserie competition, (also probably short lived)!
- What what really counts and to whom I wish a long and beautiful life: my 7th grandchild was born. E.L.R. is a 7 pounder-7 ouncer. (7 & 7 & 7!) And she will be a delightful addition to our family. And her parents are very strong & courageous!
That is all the blessings I can muster for one weekend!

We are stretched across the South Atlantic to the Coast of western Morocco, on the way to Rio. (Click to enlarge!)
I don't list where our boats are ranked, because I think position (meaning location) is more important. (Location, location, location.)
The double golden corona represents the inexhaustible supply of ice-cold Coronas I have on board Open Container III. Others' location are identified as best as I can....

Look how we have bunched up since the last Satellite shot! Bailiff is only 11 boats behind Yachts of Fun
As requested by Contiguous, here is the Chesapeake area tonight, 27 August 2911. The wind arrows on the right are shown to be shown by the game as 49.7 and 57.9 knots!
