Cool numbers, can see how many times he has spun the pedestal in the last 24 hours, as well as hour much sleep he has had.

 

For last 24 hours, been AVERAGING 30.2knots. 

 

has done 725nm. 

 

Alone.  Legend

Yeah he's been going well. Appears to have slowed right at the moment, looks to be doing 11 knots. Had a bigger lead a few days ago but is only 290 miles ahead of sodebo's pace now and that looks yo be eroding.

Here's hoping he gets conditions that allow him to pick up the pace again shortly.

Hauling now. Last 4 hours average 37 knots. Lead over the reference time on its way back up rapidly...

45min sleep in last 24 hours.

 

Not surprised at that pace, averaging 30.4 for last 24 hours?

840.5nm in last 24.

 

Keeps on rising.

 

For reference, the fully crewed 24 hour record is 907.9 (Banque Populaire V in 2009)

 

The previous solo 24 hour record appears to be 628nm (Thomas Colville, Sodebo 2008) according to wikipedia
