So, looks like the first mark is a virtual one, no landmass. Is anyone able to extract the exact lat long of the mark so we can have more fun with waypoint truncation?

Also, the last mark is supposed to be Fastnet Rock, but no landmass appears on the client screen. Do we know if it's exactly there?

Mark 1 is at decimal 50.475000480839,-1.9837277895209
(50° 28' 30"N 1° 59' 1.42"W)

Last mark is in the general area of the rock, but not at the exact spot.

Rock: 51.3889° N, 9.6036° W
Mark: 51.34887 N, 9.74928 W

The first mark is at 50°28'30.0"N 1°59'1.42"W.

I just released a new Dashboard version that displays positions with centisecond accuracy. Until it passes the Google verification process, you can download it here: http://bitweide.de/vrdashboard/VRDashboard.zip

Thanks guys.

Think about it, if we didn't have all this panic over truncated centiseconds and missed marks, the Arctique would have been one boring race.

Were any of the boats hove to near the finish of the Atlantic record clever enough to attempt the path through the Scillies in the Drheam Cup that I think we are all planning?

Looking at the Navionics charts, you wouldn't attempt to get through there in a Laser.
