I did the last edition and it does take over your life.  For that very reason I am not doing this

Good luck to all those who are though

Cheers for the heads up, that's what happens when you haven't changed course in 24 hrs, teaching PB got in the way!

Right going backwards, might alter course before bedtime... Will this game be blocked at work, who knows, but at 9am tomorrow it won't be!

Bootscooter is in 884 place.... He's not that far away!

I have just joined - Dougal13.  No idea what I am doing yet.  I haven't hit any countries which I guess is a good thing, and I think I gybed which led to the loss of 1500 places.
 
I can see this becoming very addictive!
