See attached html file for an revised version of the example page that shows Ed's travel to Greenland with multiple points. Clicking on one of the points shows a note that has a url to the blog posting for that point. Donload the file to your local computer and load it into your browser from the local filesystem.
It would be easy to draw lines between the points but if the interval between reporting times is long the some of the lines could end up crossing land which would look a bit strange for a sailboat.
This works for me but from how I understand googles map api protocol it probably shouldn't – google requires the web programmer to get a free google map api key for each web dire3ctory they plan on hosting their own google map from. In my example I'm using the same key that was used on the example page and I'm obviously not serving it from www.econym.demon.co.uk/googlemaps anymore.
FYI, the page as rendered is 140k of map images spreadover 20 requests (includes copies of all the images data just outside the rendered frame), and another 110k of downloaded js from google.
