Red dots on route map?

I've figured out the red dots scattered around the route map are other boats. But, are they,
a) All the boats in the race?
b)The subset that VR chooses to show you on screen?
c) Boats requesting routings from zezo?
d) None of the above?

I've noticed that they get sparse in number late evening North American time (middle of the night in Europe). For that reason, I've assumed they were routing requests. Now with a bunch of them on a northern route in the RORC Transat I'm not so sure.

It's c) indeed, and positions get cleared more often around the weather updates. But then players tent to click more often during that time, so the positions are real.

In the rest of the time they could be a bit stale - sometimes you can observe a trail of red dots caused by single player over an hour.

And sometimes someone gets inspired and paints a message on screen by shift-clicking (please don't. it wastes CPU resources ;-)

Thanks. That last bit might have been best unsaid. Think you can expect a dick pic covering the south Atlantic tomorrow morning :o
