limelight2 replaces the normal limelight that can't be here seeing it has already done the normal race.

As for the ranking, it's simpler to get it with this URL provided you are friended with every one.

thanks and now I have to fear limelight2 , close on my stern Rolling Eyes

the link you gave, does not work for me, not in Firefox, nost in Nightly, not in Vivaldi, not in Chromium Question

I do use my doc, that retrieves the ranking from LS servers into my spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11NsRD9XfA8okg-PhXrzQ2ShnQ6qUmce15CQXq05Jl_w/edit#gid=0

fair winds, which shifted at 600 gmt. Smile

It works for me both with chrome and Firefox. You need to be logged in to LS, I open a new tab, and voilà. If I don't precede the url with "view-source:" I get an error message, but then I just right click on the page and select "View Source" to see the xml code.

This is a very tight AFR, with 6 boats in the lead with about 20 minutes difference. They all approaching LS gate#1 now.

Bugsie, carefull, it looks you're heading to some Scottish beaches Exclamation ; or maybe worse cliffs Embarassed

The route is still long and I fear that some larger advantages and backlog will form.

What I do is copy and save it to a file (I call it ranking.xml but you can call it anything you like). Then I import it into a spreadsheet. I use OpenOffice but I assume Excel can also import xml files. Then it becomes easy to use and manipulate the data.

the leaders in the fleet still pretty close together though distances are larger than yesterday.

and we are getting some difficult winds with more challenging islands on route during my night Rolling Eyes

QMII turn for the gate.

Looks like green marks for the night, too many Islands to navigate.

The only problem is you lose too much time with the green WPs. So it was purple all the way for me. If you set them 10 minutes apart, they don't drift (I think).

Yes i know about the lost time, but just to risky in this scenario to leave purples.
