    I agree with other "posters".. :-)
    This proposal is simple, logical and easy to understand and follow.
    I too am glad to see the proposals re:Team boats.
    Therefore I agree that they should be adopted as soon as is reasonably possible.
    Good work guys!

    I just started experiencing this issue running through Internet Explorer 9 and a wired internet (100Mb) connection in the UK. Tried the Beta site and it looked to be ok but could not load the latest SWR2014-2 race from there to know if it was race specific..
    I have now accessed the race and my boat using Chrome as the browser so not a big issue per se but thought I'd add the information to the thread in case it helps anyone...

    Just started Leg 9 and was mid fleet. Wanted to adjust my course so went back to the site, and went to race page to find boat head to wind. Have reset a number of times, and despite the heading showing as corrected, it then defaults within minutes to head to wind!!!!

    HELP!!! I've gone from around 340th to 550th as I type this!!!!

    That's the same for me too! It's surprisingly confusing not being able to see my own or other's tracks.... Suddenly they just aren't there.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for response & I'll try to get screenshots if it happens again.

    Incidentally, when I asked about resolution, I meant resolution of the chart (i.e. how accurate it is), not the resolution (or solution) of any issue....

    Closing on the finish of the Antwerp to Belfast race, I set a COMPASS course to cross the finish line approx one third of the way in from the northern end of the line. Once logged with the server, projected track showed straight through where I wanted it to be, so I went off to do some chores. When I came back, my boat had shot straight past the northern end of the line and hit the docks in Belfast!! It's not a big issue per se, I was lying about 240th and had made minor errors of my own so I wasn't likely to win, but as this is a time on distance race, it might have made a difference and would certainly have done had I been closer to the front!!
    Any thoughts?

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
