Isn't there a rule you have to have it tracking?

Hey Todd, The issue is only with their main tracking page. If you click on Class 5 on the Class dropdown and click regenerate, that works or if you click on SOS on the Challenger dropdown and click Regenerate, that works too.

SewSew (Smyth) is tracking.
SewSew 9:49 Past Ten Thousand Island
SOS 10:42 Behind by quite a bit just Past North Naples

Looks like SOS is heading back. Update when you get a chance Jake? Hope all is alright.

The last several updates have shown SOS at 0 knts and would appear to be headed back north. I hope all is OK aboard the mosquito.

Swamp mockery has a sizable lead at this point.

Smyth is MIA on my screen.


Edit, changed the view to show tracks and waypoints which put everyone in very different places, looks like SOS is nearing checkpoint #2 just behind Smyth. It would appear to me that they are making great time.

SOS appears to now be in the trees, guess they stopped for some sleep while waiting on daylight to navigate to checkpoint 2, looks like they have a pretty comfortable 2nd place with some time before 3rd reaches them.

Randy's put down some real distance in the last few hours, seems to be keeping 11-12 knts boat speed.

i have the same issue. it was showing SOS in open water, then near the next check point, now back in open water.

i can't see Randy at all and on the results page it doesn't have him making the first check point.

Switch it to view the one individual only, then select show track and all way points.

Looks like the current/wind situation at cp2 must be terrible. Appears progress is painfully slow.

Looks like an interesting race for class 5 2nd. SOS retraced their path west out to open water and Swampmonkey is taking a more direct but potentially hazardous in-shore route. Winds out of the SE means it will be a beat of sorts. In that case, the outer path where the daggers can be all the way down might pay off. Or will it?

Have there been any videos posted to You Tube yet? I love to see all the new creations some of the competitors come up with.

What's Randy sailing? A new design or that scissors folding trimaran thing he had?

Yes the scissor was there but had different amas than last years. these had remote controlled flood/drain hatches on the stern of each ama. Looked like the same a-cat main body but i am not 100% on that.

Neat! Thanks for that. It's blowing out back right now, I'm taking my jumping dog out on the Prindle 18 for some good clean fun.

He LOVES the water and he loves going out on the cat (a dog who loves cats??).

He's a son of a Dingo, the Aussies will recognize him.

I've got to find a trap harness for him, so he'll stop sliding off the boat!

I didn't check the times the SPOT transmitted, but my map seems to show SwampMonkee ahead of SOS by less than a mile?

That Steeplechase-esqe route is pretty familiar with both teams so if those tracks are correct, would make for interesting tactics in that last stretch
