Look for "stoogie" - its Craig (hopeitfloats) who's now managed to sign on,

This means that I am still racing "Mayhem One" (see earlier "For Sale" post - unless someone else wants to join in  :-))

Cheers
Danny

Clipper - "Gina T", "Mayhem omra 85", "Mayhem One"
Jules Verne - "Gina T", "Mayhem omra85"
Dakar (bike) - "Gina T"

From the comments received (none), you're probably skipping past this bit  %)

Clipper Round the World regatta

Positions at 13th Jan 3.00pm
(After just holding the lead all night,GinaT has been (positionally) overtaken by Ocean Mayhem but who has the better line in tomorrow and Fridays dash to the finish)?
Mark, Brian and Larry are off the map  <:( <:(

Hey guys, did you know that one of the three little islands we passed in the "gap" (the three Ian, [Ocean Mayhem] got stuck in)  %)
is actually the volcano Krakatou, which is still very active
(photo below taken June 2009!)

This game and Google Earth - great combination :-)) :-))

Looking forward to the party in Singapore (wonder if we get the weekend off)  {-) {-)

Cheers
Danny

Thats because you're facing into the wind!
Click on the compass and turn it to the opposite side. As you're doing this watch your speed indicator increase.
You will also see two red spots in front of your boat, these show the estimated position in 12 and 24 hours
(this should be used together with the wind forecast (0, 12, 24, 36 buttons) to get the best speed.
You can also change from "Spi" to "Jib" sails, which will alter your speed.
When you log on, the opening screen has "more info" which tells you all about the game.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Danny
