Importing Tracking Data

I thought I already submitted this question but don't see it.  Maybe I closed the window before I hit the button
Apologies if it shows up twice.

I'll also preface this with the statement that I don't know why the skipper is just not importing the YB data directly.
Possibly my explanations on how to do this have been found wanting.

What he is looking to do is import the tracking data he gets twice daily by email from the WARC Ralley Control

Email has the following in the body.  Can this be imported without modification.  

Last reported position for all vessels as at: 08 Mar 2018 20:04 UT

Re: Importing Tracking Data

It doesn't look like a format I am familiar with, but check the Exp help on the formats Exp supports.

Of course, the best option is to use YB
