Having re-cracked the top 1000, he's dropped back again to 1058 but is ready to attack big time :-)
He has another boat 'watching' him and following his every move. It's called 'Bare Knuckles' but he refers to him as 'Knucklehead'. They're having quite a duel! No idea who it is. It's a very cool program really! They are only 120 nautical miles behind the virtual leaders and only 60 miles behind the real leaders who are now stuck in a 'hole'.
It is quite engrossing.
