I have registered for the second leg from Capetown to Cochin,can you tell me why i now have the race in "Beta" whatever that is???Why the different format?or have I missed something somewhere?Just got used to a good system in my mind..
Thank you
It's just the client itself that is beta, to let you know it is newly developed and isn't throughly tested yet.

Kalle r we going to racve Leg2 with this new BETA....????
Yes we are!
Any instructions how we log-in or any client to be downloaded... etc... Hopefully you will post them in a due time
Nothing to download, its all flash based, you just follow the "Enter race now" links on the right!
I don't like sailing with the flash client.

What I miss from the old client is:
- Big map window
- Resizeable polar window
- Tool to draw courses
- Different colours for different boats
- Boat traces
- Different blue colours depending on wind

Thanks for the feedback. We simply need to go for a web-based client to be compatible with fire-walls etc. We will work as hard as we can with getting most of the stuff you require into the client.

...one of the guys behind the game...
How is this allocated? Random? Entry Order?

Are colours reallocated next time one logs on?
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
I think there are too many arrows at the moment and that the density of arrows does not change when zoomimg in or out. Perhaps a wind density slide scale could be good improvement, or a tab with set of preferences to turn off/on different elements.

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. 😊
