Yippee - I've just finished the Jules Verne Round the World virtual race.
Mayhem'n'Chaos took 60 days, 21 hours, 42 mins
GinaT took 62 days, 13 hours, 52 mins.

These are actual REAL TIME days - wind changes 7.00 am and 7.00 pm EVERY Day (sometimes up to 6 course changes in a day)

Ocean Mayhem is about to finish but Semperatis, Antipodean Mayhem and TomatCrewe are still battling out there.

Ocean mayhem is only a couple of hours away from finishing - looking forward to a beer or several!

What were your finishing positions Danny?

62days, 4hrs,4mins to finish the round world race.  :-))

A very close race with GinaT , 9hrs 48mins difference over 62 days.

The finish positions don't seem to make any sense
Mayhem'n'Chaos - 25642  (60 days ...)
GinaT               -  25630  (62 days ...)

so I think the total time is a better indicator.
Bit of a relief after all this time - yes, beers etc are needed  O0

my final position was puzzling as well, 25000 plus, whereas the position just before finishing was under 2000. It does say temporary position though, perhaps it has to wait until the last racer comes in or something?

What were you doing trekking round the Antarctic for over 3 weeks (and BELOW the red line   :police: )
At least you're past New Zealand  :-))

My biggest puzzle is the track of Antipodean Mayhem in the Clipper race  :o :o
Either he's trying to write his name, or he's on a two week 'bender'  {-) {-)

nearly there. if vodafone hadnt cut off my internet service before the new ISP was ready to connect i would be finished too. rats to vodafone. sailing for a week with no chance of correcting my course or contacting danny to steer. thats my excuse and i'm sticking to it. BEWARE OF THE MARAUDER ON THE NEXT LEG.  YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WARNED. :-)

The handbrake keeps jamming and dragging me everywhere, and 12 hour breaks in course plotting make for interesting wind changes.
I have a lot to learn about sailing.

Yes we're getting better. I sent one North of Japan (Danny Buoy) and one South (GinaT).
After 23 days (seemed more like 230 at times) they finished within 2 hours of each other.
Well done all (well most  {-) {-))
"Anti" wins the "most interesting course" award! Hic  %% %% %)

You'll be a week or more early then  %)
The start has been delayed to match the real race.  Have a look on their forum for announcements.

GinaT (the one to catch) will be there, as will Danny Buoy

Random Mayhem course notes for Leg 8 (from assorted players)

Start - point boat due West (for 1 hour) - forget boat

Day 3 - remember boat, log on, find boat 480 miles West of San Francisco - turn left

Day 4 - forget to check forecast, sail into middle of 100 mile diameter "no wind" circle

Day 5 - drift

Day 10 - remember boat - find it heading toward Antarctica - turn left

Day 11 - break computer - unable to log on

Day 20 - log on and find boat back at San Francisco - turn left (for 1 hour) .........

Ring any bells anyone  %) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)
