Its now been 10 days since the last transmission from Pinta. Therefore under Microtransat rules we are now disqualified. Here are two maps showing Pinta’s progress. The first shows the progress during the first 49 hours when the Iridium modem was still sending hourly position updates. The second shows the complete route including the two weeks after the Iridium messages ceased. The maps are coloured to show the speed of the boat, these speeds are simply based on the time and distance between each point and therefore are an underestimate as the boat never travels in a perfectly straight line. Thanks go to OpenStreetMap/OpenCycleMap and gpsvisualizer.com for creating these maps.
