Rio Race Tracking

The 2017 Cape to Rio Race has started. The race tracking links on the Royal Cape Yacht Club and Cape to Rio Race websites bring up the map but seem to be having a problem with showing the boats and their tracks. Go to the Xtra-Track website, select the Cape to Rio Race 2017 tracking and you should get a map that shows the boats and tracks, with boats updating about every 10 minutes.

As for "Black Cat", it looks like they stuck themselves away in light air downwind of Robben Island and have had to change tactics to find more wind. Now they have to play catch-up.

I should start receiving reports from "Black Cat" in the next day or two and will post stories here.
