I can't see any posts in the chat, nor any numbers on the 'steer' page, no names on the leaderboard etc.... on the chat I have the names of people who have written something but no posts as such. I've rebooted and cleared my cache and still nothing is happening.... any ideas?

CG x
Sounds to me like a Flash issue. You might need to update. Right click on the Race screen and then on the About Adobe link... if you need to update Flash it will tell you what to do.

Otherwise... clearing your Flash Cache can help.

To do that, on race screen, Right Click and then select Global Settings and then delete.

... Adobe doesn't need to be updated apparently. How do I clear the flash cache? I've done all the others ......
I gave you the instructions for Flash Cache at the bottom of the first post :-)

Sorry.. have been out/away from pc!!

Am asking in kerguelen chat for you...

I've done it all and nothing is working still. It's only on SOL
Have you tried logging on through the SOL Classic Client and then if all is OK, changing the end of the url from ?version=classic to ?beta=true ....

hope hmm or someone sees the links to this thread!
CG has something recently changed on your PC? Such as loading updates?
Might try reinstalling Flash to see if that helps.
Another idea might be just try a different browser such as Chrome.
Typically if you clear the IE cache, and reboot it should clear up.
I've seen something similar once but then it went away. Not sure what happened.

What is:
- your machine
- what OS do you use
- what browser do you use

Everything gets done by not doing anything!
Another thought, and not sure if it's possible, but could the font color in the browser or flash be set to the background color. Meaning both set to white?

Just a thought, not sure how that could happen or if it's possible.
What browser? (what OS)? Does it happen in other browsers? Can you select the invisible text, or is not there rather than just invisible? Could you post a Screenshot? have you done anything with fonts recently (added new fonts, or something)?

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.

Sail Newport Timed Race 2022

Welcome to Rhode Island in our first TIMEDrace this year. In 2020 we raced on Maxi Trimarans, now we will see how fast we can cover the 87nm route around Block Island, Fishers Island and back to the clubhouse on MC 38 monohulls. The previous record of 4 hours 5 minutes and 21 seconds belongs to Kipper1258. Try to judge your weather window well, but once you've finished (you must have finished), you can always try again (as often as you like) by clicking the link below.
