As near as I can figure it seems that Adobe pushed out an update in early May, 2015 that basically didn't "take out the trash". It seems that certain certificate files that should have been replaced in both server and client side of products weren't. Maybe humm and kroppyer can make some sense of this thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1837656.

In the meantime on the client side I found the following to work on both Win 7 and Vista machines and assume it will work for all OSs.

Right click in the field of the client holder for the races. From the drop down list choose "Global Settings". Wait for a bit..it seems to take a while to load (at least on a 2.6 Mbps cable connection in a 3rd world internet country like the U.S.) because the settings are held on the Macromedia server. When it does load you will see a page called "Flash Player Help". From the menu on the top left corner, select Global Storage Settings Panel. When it loads you will see a box on the top right. At the bottom of this there are two check boxes, one labeled "Allow third-party flash content to store data on your computer" the other "Store common Flash components to reduce download times". Uncheck both.
Next to clear Flash Player cache select the tab "Website Storage Settings panel". Wait for it to load (around 30 seconds here). In the box click the button "Delete all sites". close the window and the reload the Flash client. It should now work.
For Optimum Angles Tool, when you try to load the page there two bars the bottom one says "Error #2046" the top one a white and light grey bar. In order to get to Global Settings right click in the middle of the white/grey bar.
You may also be able to reach the Global Settings panel by pasting:
http://www.macromedia.com/.../settings_manager02.html into the address bar of your browser.
Most of the error 2046 seem to be in chromium browsers like Chrome and Dragon, though I had 2046 errors with Optimum Angles Tool in all browsers on my Win 7 Laptop (Dragon, Chrome, IE, PaleMoon, and Opera).
Sry...that was me as sol. I was checking out the Keppel race as sol and then went to the forums.
I have started anew thread "RSL Error #2046"

as I believe that this problem deserves a new thread. Best to all..Ahmet

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
