Hi everyone.
It is 1400 UTC and the 2014 Around-The-World Race is now officially underway.

As per the provisions of the Special Rules, you may begin at Sochi (URSS) for your journey around the world and back.

Please remember to set up your Duenna with a check mark on "Enable online flight tracking" and pick the proper event: "2014 rtw race official tracking". You also need to use the "Baton-carrier or wingman" check box if flying in that role. Best of luck to all the teams and pilots in this year's race!

GO !

Mike MacKuen, Rob Ibey and Ed Keller
