Brian, in 'Clipper', what sail are you using?  You don't seem to be going very fast.
Try switching to the spinnaker ("spl" on the sail selection)  :-))

Thanks for telling me,I didn't know that i'd run aground. I couldn't see the island because another boat was on top of it when i set my course. Do you just reverse course to get free?

180 deg turn will definitely work, but you may save time by trying a 90 deg turn South first.
Cheers
Danny
just checked and it looks like you're free already.  :-))

Looks addictive! Have you seen how many Skippers are racing? 74,340! No wonder you keep bumping into other boats, it is crowded out there!

It's great fun (especially with snow and frozen lakes)  :-))

You can take it fairly seriously  %% %% %%
or do what Chingdevil is doing - stock up on Pimms and pootle along at the back (sorry Brian)  {-) {-) {-)

AND ITS FREE  %) :-)) :-))

that's why I'm currently running 2 clippers, 2 trimarans, a car and a motorbike (last 2 in the Dakar rally  ;) %% %%  - what fun!

Cheers
