    What did you do? I am having the same issue. "Waiting for weather download"

    Update - still an issue for me. Cleared Cache, rebooted, downloaded latest flash, tried multiple computers, tried Chrome and IE, tried starting a new race. Given up on leg1. Hopefully can sort something out for leg2

    Day 4 Update.
    Quite an eventful 24 hrs. At the start of the day, the majority of boats where heading NE, rather tightly bunched. The question was, when to tack back East, as 76Trombones illustrated. The boats that delayed their tack intially looked to be in a very strong position. Then new wx came through which hurt the boats to far north - they couldnt get on the back of the stonger winds. The fleet is effectively split in 2 - see attached. The West group will pick up strong winds building from the Southwest - a chance for the boats behind to gain miles. This wind will swing to the South which will allow boats to point directly at the mark.

    The east group has sails eased & is trying to get east as quickly as possible, as Exmeromotu explained. The group is quite spread right now, but I see them compressing North to Sth as the north boats will start to drop more south as they start encountering a NE clocking wind. It is imperative that boats stay in front of the dying winds.

    What group will win out - we wont know the answer for a while..

    Day 3. Decision time - when to tack.
    This decision has really been made for us with a wind shift coming thru in a couple of hours. Once the tack is made, expect a long run east with no real opportunity to head NE in the near future. Objective is to then stay in the pressure & not to get dropped off the back of the NE windflow

    There has been an opportunity to pull back a few miles on some of the leading boats by taking an advantage of a 15 degree wind shift. see attached.

    Day 2 Analysis
    As expected, the southern boats where able to ease sheets in more pressue, good angle & head east at max boat speed. The line of boats pivoted in a nice orderly fashion over 15 hours - see attached. More importantly its all about postioning at this point with light wind coming and a gybe coming up in 4 hours. At the same time you have to balance short term gains with a longer term strategy. The longer term plan looks very messy with no logical path, plenty of shifts and a wall of no wind across the course.

    Leg Update: under 12 hours in, boats rounding Cape Agulhas. Hugging the coast in the first hours paid off. Boats now evenly spread across 20 NM in a straight line, no group having a signficant advantage. Boats to Nth - lighter winds, better angle. Boats to sth, more wind, longer dist. Boats will disperse now as strategy is played out. Decision - how far sth to you go and how far east do you go? Some nasty holes appearing across the course in 21-23 hrs. Where do you position yourself?
