Can you re-fresh the page, say every minute, to see your new position and everyone else?

on the black banner at the top of the chart, you will see the word 'off' click it and it goes to an auto refresh, but only does it every 10 mins.

Alternatively, log out, log back in and it will tell you the new positions

Hi Greg
How do you add a friend?

Still can't find you, Andy!

If I employ the techniques of the sailing craft on Coniston then I'll be about to collide with you head on- you'd be surprised how often this manouver is executed among novices!

It was you who sunk Gondola, and then you played on her- that's just sick and twisted! <*<

Has anyone bought the "extas" - ie. spinnaker 2??
I'm playing 'basic', wonder how many others are?

No havn't bought extras- think it would be unfair as I think most are so it's down to strategy and skill just like real racing, just without the wet stuff or the yacht club afterparty- mores the pity.
