I was going all hi tech on this leg, :idea: :idea: downloaded Bluewater Racing, loaded it all up, but there is so much to do for a techno freak to get something out of it, :problem: :problem: so START/CONTROL PANEL/PROGRAMS AND FEATURES/UNINSTALL. :eh: :eh:

 

Back to SOTP :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

Plenty of holes around PNG.

 

It looks like head east to 150E then head se to go between Port Villa and New Caledonia and then home.

 

 

Probably not as far east as 150E about 135E (5 days sailing) before heading SE.

If anyone wants to drive my boat go for it, I can't get in again.

 

Also be aware I don't think I can sail on TWA only CC as even when set on TWA it goes in a striaght line. Don't bother with DC's they don't seem to be working either, watch for random DC's turning up out of god knows where and watch for random course changes, I've had a couple since the start.

 

Don't know what's going on but it seems I'm having a full clusterfuck.
