I'm a bit of a fan of the current Jules Verne Record attempt underway by Groupama3. They've not had much luck with the weather so far, yet are still over 500 miles ahead of the current record. With 30 knot average speeds possible it is pretty impressive stuff.
So while checking out the latest news on the Groupama3 website today I found the virtual game. I remember the Volvo, or was it Whitbread race a while ago had a virtual; race, and my flatmate Dave and I were hooked. So I've registered, and my new Trimaran and I are currently stuck in a calm patch of the Cape of Good Hope in 6846th!
I've turned the autopilot on though, so I'm off Moth sailing!
