Nooft in 15 days, interesting way to do it

Nooft had been a 17 day island since I first solved it. Yesterday, I worked through most of the valid opening moves until I found a 15 day solution. What is interesting is that the center capital must NOT move on the first day. This sets up a cascade where brown, then dark green, and then yellow can all be starved to death allowing the win without making a knight until the 14th day and wiping the island on the 15th day.

Hi FP

I've managed to do it in 9 days, but only after playing it 9 or 10 times. :D
Is there any list of records for islands?
