Teams gets their waypoints when they pass D2, not days before as reported elsewhere, however during team briefings on the event days, you will be given the latest information on the rescue of Joe. This may include any waypoint changes (as in previous years) that are necessary for the competition to commence. The waypoints are not set in stone, and reflect a real life situation where any updated information may increase or decrease the search area.
Okay, I'm a little confused here.
To make this absolutely clear, the waypoints in the Competition Rules PDF are not the final waypoints?
So when the teams pass D2, they'll be given another set of coordinates, which can change yet again in the hours leading up to the competition?
