Mackinac Race belongs in July Not August

Racing to Mackinac is the highlight of the summer season for the Great Lakes as renowned sailors & their highly prized boats bring excitement and world class competition to Lake Huron & Lake Michigan.

This year's edition starts from Port Huron on Saturday, July 12, 2014 under the auspices of the Bayview Yacht Club


If the SOL Race committee intends to conduct a Super Mac it should coincide with this date & proceed to Chicago,

Yellowbrick Tracking of the fleet will be employed for the initial portion of this leg until we pass under the Mackinac Bridge.

None so blind
It seems to me as if some dates are incorrect in the table, at least concerning TIMED races, or?
Maestro ....you are correct !! ....I already raised the issue to SRC attention ....It should be very easy to amend .....

Also asked that A2R point be answered .

Meanwhile apologies to you ALL for not completly correct calendar being published . SRC will surely step in and resolve quickly .

Hi ALL my friends ;)

1) amendments have been done and now the Calendar should be correct ...thanks for spotting some errors ..;)

2) A2R ....

I have investigated the matter with the SRC person responsible for week races . He was aware of all the details of the irl race , but was also aware that:
A)although sought , there has been no buddying opportunity
B) we had already run in March the same course
C) we have protected one slot in July until we knew that the buddying was not possible
D) wanted anyway keep a course in Summer on the Great Lakes as very popular in SOL.

3) As in March the same course was valid for SYC Championship , I have cancelled that duplication , and nominated the Vineyard race as SYCCH for August instead.

Hope this clarifies .....I am sure that in 2015 we will seek buddying with CHIMAC again .;)

A2R - I understand that you and Piero have been in direct communication about this, so SRC will leave it there

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
