As near as I can figure it seems that Adobe pushed out an update in early May, 2015 that basically didn't "take out the trash". It seems that certain certificate files that should have been replaced in both server and client side of products weren't. Maybe humm and kroppyer can make some sense of this thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1837656.

In the meantime on the client side I found the following to work on both Win 7 and Vista machines and assume it will work for all OSs.

Right click in the field of the client holder for the races. From the drop down list choose "Global Settings". Wait for a bit..it seems to take a while to load (at least on a 2.6 Mbps cable connection in a 3rd world internet country like the U.S.) because the settings are held on the Macromedia server. When it does load you will see a page called "Flash Player Help". From the menu on the top left corner, select Global Storage Settings Panel. When it loads you will see a box on the top right. At the bottom of this there are two check boxes, one labeled "Allow third-party flash content to store data on your computer" the other "Store common Flash components to reduce download times". Uncheck both.
Next to clear Flash Player cache select the tab "Website Storage Settings panel". Wait for it to load (around 30 seconds here). In the box click the button "Delete all sites". close the window and the reload the Flash client. It should now work.
For Optimum Angles Tool, when you try to load the page there two bars the bottom one says "Error #2046" the top one a white and light grey bar. In order to get to Global Settings right click in the middle of the white/grey bar.
You may also be able to reach the Global Settings panel by pasting:
http://www.macromedia.com/.../settings_manager02.html into the address bar of your browser.
Most of the error 2046 seem to be in chromium browsers like Chrome and Dragon, though I had 2046 errors with Optimum Angles Tool in all browsers on my Win 7 Laptop (Dragon, Chrome, IE, PaleMoon, and Opera).
Sry...that was me as sol. I was checking out the Keppel race as sol and then went to the forums.
I have started anew thread "RSL Error #2046"

as I believe that this problem deserves a new thread. Best to all..Ahmet

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
