It looks like Paradise or Golf for this one.

I had hoped that my northern detour would compensate with extra speed. Not enough to make up the 1h20m I am behind.

Auto sails are a lot better than orange marks overnight. Had that with a couple of boats, including races. Also had a lot of connection errors - both when opening the browser window and in the game. The browser is timing out on waiting for www.liveskipper.com...

It suggests that something is not right on the server.

Just now I am waiting for Reverse race to load - still waiting for any of the flash content to download. Time for a window reload before Flash crashes the browser.

Sowslo, orange marks? they do nothing. Greens or purples do stuff.

Auto sails are crap, There is something wrong going on here, I will have a word with my 'Supper slipper' mate and get him to pass it on....... Rolling Eyes
