Attention Ard.. sorry fella, your links for this weeks AFR , are for S-20-14 Samoa, not 15 Japan.

I'm in this week, as my Friday attempt ended on a shoreline unable to get game access.

This ARF attempt may end the same way without game access for 6 hours later today, but we will see.... if you see me on a beach in Japan, just wave Cool


sorry, adjusted , should be OK now, though a little too late for a timely start Embarassed

You have opened the door for QM II …. may be difficult to keep the marks on exact position with poor Wind ?

Going up North to the start area. Winds seems to have to spin each time we cross the area, which is very difficult to set proper marks in the night.

lets give it a try for coming night , with 2 gate passages on auto Rolling Eyes Smile

something strange with QM II

first my surprise that Paradise has passed QM II but
than it looks like QM II has zero (0) boatspeed Question

there is no pixel and heading looks around 40 twa, so the only reason seems to be a dropped anchor, or maybe sailliing to sharp with the Gennaker. Question

anyway looking to a route to pass Kingfisher 829 Wink

The overnight passage turned out to be a bad one as i slept in my rack. Well done Ard, your persistence paid off.
I hope you have the bacon and eggs cooking.
