Spanish term or phrase:tiempo real (strange use of)
"En el Grupo B, la presencia de 23 barcos First 40.7 entre los 70 participantes del grupo garantizó el espectáculo al competir prácticamente en tiempo real."
"virtually in real time" ??? Don't all sailing vessels exist in real time? Is this mere hyperbole? or am I missing something?
I think this is probably the best and most obvious alternative. I really don't feel I should encourage this offbeat use of "real time" - which has a real meaning... or had :-( 2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: ...23 of the boats were neck-and-neck?
Something that just occurred to me, as an alternative to the other answers, but which just might get your mind thinking laterally so as to identify the real meaning.
