thanks for that kalle and for your interest and follow-up. Have looked at that link, but have no idea what to do with the info. Off to bed soon, will worry about it tomorrow.
You need to put 2 addresses into your HOSTS file which on Windows systems is located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and on Linux in the etc\ directory. These addresses are:

IP address host
62.181.230.173 race.sailport.se
62.181.230.171 www.sailonline.org

There is a catch, if ever Sailonline is assigned new IP addresses, your browser won't be able to find them.

Still nothing, I give up. I am no IT guru so back to VR for me. Sorry, but waste of a week.
One more thing: whenever you've made changes to your hosts file, you'll need to restart your browser to make the change take effect.

Squall: The incorrect zone file from was pushed with a "time to live" of 24 hours, so all name servers should be re-updated about 20:00 UTC with the correct information.

I am still unable to get it working after 16 hours of not seeing my boat. As far as I am concerned the race should be cancelled as it is no longer a fair race.
I had access at home this am but at work now and I can't get into the race. Is there a problem again or is just something at my end? I'm in the USA and on a Mac (so the PC suggestion was not helpful).

There's a hosts file on OS X as well, in the /private/etc directory. See http://support.apple.com/kb/TA27291 for details.
1) It can take up to 24 hours (counted from approx 20.30 UTC yesterday) for the issues to resolve, depending on your ISP. Please see previous link for official information.

2) This is an error outside of our control which affected all .se domains. Please see previous link for official information.

3) We will not cancel Poor Man's Race. These things happen and over time the advantages/disadvantages will even out.

4) If you edit your hosts file, I recommend you remove the information when the issues are resolved since it can cause you trouble in the future if we move our servers.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
