RB08 results

Results for Bangor to Oban are up. RIBs take 8 of the top 10 places so far, and Goldfish are looking very good with places 1, 3 and 9.

I've put together a spreadsheet for anyone who is interested. It's quite basic, but you can sort by leg/class etc. I'll try to keep this updated for the rest of the race, but if anyone wants to do a more clever version then feel free!

At this stage of the race, the positions only tell a small part of the story. With four legs still to run, and only six hours between the top thirty boats, a lot can change.

I've updated the spreadsheet so it's a bit clearer, and added the time differences.

Listening to the drivers briefing in Bangor yesterday morning there appeared to be dissatisfaction with time penalties imposed on some of the boats for infringing restricted areas. Teams were told that they need not file a protest at that time, but just register their intention to file a protest at a later date.
So it may be a while before any timing changes are revealed.

I think Hot Lemon and Mr Mako (amongst others) were questioning their times.

Good spreadsheet. Much easier to understand than the RB08 site.

I had heard that a couple of boats would be penalised for infringements on day one, but as far as I know that hasn't been confirmed yet. Given that the exclusion areas are clearly defined and all the boats will have a GPS record of their course, there shouldn't be much room for debate.

I hope that the decisions get confirmed one way or another because at the moment an hour looks like it could make a big difference.

This was mentioned. The organisers are relying on the Marine Track record but competitors argue that this system does not update often enough to accurately record the track of a fast moving boat.
Agree that it needs sorting quickly, but I'm not sure that it will be because the teams don't actually have to make the detailed protest yet!
Maybe the lay day will give the organisers time to look at it.

Except that there may be two versions of the truth.... the MarineTrack plot, and, if enabled, the boat's own GPS plot. If those disputing the alleged infringement haven't got this enabled, they may be kicking themselves.

It's a fair point, and I hope that anyone using this system as "evidence" understands how it works.... from an observer's point of view it seems to interpolate between plotted points, so if it looses connection, a straight line appears to be drawn between the two known plots. Only the boat skipper and his crew know where they really went between those two points.

Just heard Hot Lemon has had the penaltey overturned and they are now 3rd overall. That should please them.

Not sure what the penalty was for though

Great News - Hot Lemon

Great news for Hot Lemon.

We will have to wait for the full story, I suspect, on this one.
