Please note that the Virtual Mark at the Needles, as used in RIOW, is being utilised. Additionally we are now designating the maximum distance from the finish bouy, when applicable, as being 0.05nm rather than 100m. So, the finish line is marginally shorter from now on, but atleast most plotters acan rad our your distance in nautucal miles, when reading out in meters is not so commonly available.
