Apologies for absence folks.. but at least it included some neuro rehab so now I walk with two trekking poles instead of one stick! Alleged progress.. think "symmetry" :-D

I won't get to the end of Leg 1 of the RTWR before it closes tonight utc-time, but here are our rankings:



Many congratulations to those who, unlike me, didn't try to strike out in a unique direction

Gracias kind sir, seems to me that being in the right area early on dictates your whole race. Current epic excepted, what a marathon.

Of what please?


Actually From the Calendar it looks like Beru to Bora Bora 11th Sept, but being the ace navigator I am I am at a loss to locate Beru.

No, I was looking for RTWR Leg 2.

I finally found the Calendar, buried under Links, but there is no Q4 calendar yet.

So does anyone know the Leg 2 ETD?

It's Qt's idea belt off towards the coast and turn to port shortly trying to avoid the blue bits, I sort of follow the idea so went broadly along with it. Opinion seems split, we will see.

We must tell that Viking how not to miss the start.

Wodrick,

Yes, I wondered about that. Brave move!

I'm eye-balling it until Tierra Del Fuego. I've just had my moment of fame:

Here we all are.... I'll try and make a flotilla pic on-chart later when we have daylight in the race:



Some of us are taking more scenic routes than others, it would seem

Yes, I narrowly avoiding beaching on King George Island! Home to Macchu Pichu Base, among others.

Working for a living really interferes with my hobbies.
