    Default Tracker Details

    Looking at the new tracker. Wondering the details on reporting times and display times? The boats don't update that often right now. Can't see Elizabeth Ann and a few others.

    Thanks,

    Nominally racers are instructed to set them to report every 4 hours. But they are under racer control, and some racers (e.g. Kynntana) have theirs set to what appears to be 15 minutes. It's a matter of how much attention they are willing to give to keeping the unit charged. Mouton Noirs current position report is exactly 4 hours old as I type, he is conserving power I guess.

    At the moment, I see IRIS is missing from the tracker. Probably a Jibset hiccup. I've seen masses of boats vanish one day and reappear the next when reviewing the 2016 tracker. Don't worry, they haven't sunk, probably.

    What happened to Gregory (LIBRA)? The tracker shows him almost back to the Corinthian YC at 15:50.

    OWL is doing quite well. Go the OWL!

    I bet IRIS is a tracker equipment or data connection issue. Like maybe he didn't turn it on.

    Don't forget to hit the WIND DISPLAY button at the top of the full tracker page at Jibeset. Trippy.

    Charley Casey looks like he's doing great on Riff Rider!
    I'm really proud to be part of his crew bringing the boat back home!

    It appears Mouton Noir is heading back. Per Marine Traffic (AIS), at 2120 he was on a heading of 50 degrees at 2.9 knots.

    Mouton Noir is confirmed eastbound from the latest tracker updates.
    It appears that most of the fleet has parked up over the last few hours with the arrival of the dreaded Southerly Surge.
    Riff Rider may be the only one still in the gradient breeze, at least for the time being.
