Fair winds to all who have started Leg 3!

It's not to late to join this race - registration for it will remain open for quite some time - and it would be great to see more (virtual) sailors from PPRuNe joining in.

Sailonline has a quarterly calendar published in advance so if you can't make this ocean race, there's plenty for you to try out!

Quite a good inter pru fleet battle going on at present, I've had to whip the crew, make 'em work harder.

Whoopee! I'm no longer Tail-end Charlie.

Wodrick is stuck in the blue and has taken over the Fraser-Nash rear-turret.

Here are our current rankings in the series...



and

Here we are today:



We can at least see the images with the workround I have found but the quality is shocking - not at all what I have uploaded... guess Google is trying to force one into only sharing images via its system!

Here's a giant url/image ...

Hope at least one of the fleet pics is visible to everyone!

:-D

Here are two versions of our final ranking:





and in case you can't see the images at all here is a simple list:

1. lyric
2. golfsierrakilo
3. truckie
4. RainbowChaser
5. reflex
6. VikingAhoy
7. MerryTime
8. Miss_Saigon
9. Whaler
10. beaufort1

I haven't seen Whaler or beaufort in a race for quite some time so hopefully they are just choosing not to race.

Until next time!
