I wondered that too!!!!!

Think because we've being sailing longer we'll get less points so it doesn't matter where he starts- he's got less time to gain more places.

I quite like the Jules Verne race.  It's just you against the clock. Should take between 50 and 65 days to go right round the world.
The boats are faster but can easily be managed as well as the Clipper race.
Brian? (Chingdevil) has joined but hasn't set off yet (facing the wrong way)!!  So much for breaking the record  %) %) {-)

When I get back home work I will sort it out, I thought I had started >:-o >:-o >:-o >:-o

Slow and steady wins the race, that is if you are facing the right way %% %% %% %% %%

Thats odd, in the profiles it gives New Zealand as one of the choices of where you're from (along with just about evey other country)!

Have you tried signing up to the Jules Verne?

Dont get too excited Greg, the positions are up the creek!
Check the 4 together approaching the 'gap' - the FIRST place is the LAST of the 4  %) %)

It must work on "as the crow flies" distance to the finish.

You should pass just in front of me soon! (secret plans .... )
