    Very helpful, now I can go over Leg 83 in detail and compare results.
    Also, thanks for the link to the news story on the Los Angeles sailor in his
    26' boat who went for a short sail and 3 months later was found adrift but in
    fine form off the coast of Costa Rica. This morning on 2 channels heard the
    same story, accompanied by pictures and film of interview with Mr Van Pham,
    on Sydney TV. Maybe its a slow news day but in any case its a great story.
    When he was rescued he had up a jury-rigged sail, meals for the future were
    perched, still alive and waiting (sea-birds) on his improvised bowsprit,  his
    only problem for the medium term seemed to be running out of wooden bits of
    his boat to burn for fuel! Have to wonder whether he wasn't better off out
    there than back in LA with no boat and no family or friends (apparently).
