and.... nearly the end of 2018 and it would look as if the entire PPRuNe Flotilla will be safely back in Les Sables before New Year strikes! Many congratulations to our indomitable nature ... to sail such a small boat around the world is, even in virtuality, a pretty mean feat!! While the stuff of our endurance might be somewhat removed from the undoubtedly remarkable IRL racers, to stay the course is a tribute to our persistance, for sure.

Here is our almost-final ranking ... you never know, Viking Ahoy aka SMT Member still has a little time to improve his ranking as he crosses the Bay of Biscay - the winds are being typically fickle there right now!

Well.... we did it! and VikingAhoy did manage to make up three more places before we all reached the line!



With just two of the original fleet of 18 participants making it back to Les Sables d'Olonne so far, there remain four actively racing Golden Globe 2019 participants (the others have retired at various stages throughout the race) and the positions of the remaining "combatants" can be tracked here on YB Tracking.

Don't forget... the Round New Zealand 2019 race is starting this coming weekend - not an ocean race, but certainly a challenge!
