"Ghosts" At Race Rocks?

Those boats that say they're there? Night Runner and Wy'East? Well, they're not really there.

The Race Tracker onboard transponders have occasional "glitches" that make a boat appear somewhere it's not... or was... but isn't any longer... Make sense?

In other words, always check the time of the position reading on the race coordinate pop-up screen to ensure you have recent data.

The reading for Wy'East is about an hour behind her actual position right now, which is much closer to the finish. It might catch up - and it might not!

Night Runner's position indicator puts them at Race Rocks for the last several hours, but we have confirmation that they've finished.
