The sol-courses is not a secret :-)
...one of the guys behind the game...
Attached a kmz file with all courses setup in SOl, and an Excel file with all races run in SOL. Both until November 2009.

I added Ramsgate as a waypoint to both: the nonstop RoundBritain &Ireland and the 5-leg-version.
Have fun :)


PS: I am on finishing the Caribbian 600 and we simply change the name, no?? :-)
re: dates: feel free to start the proposed races whenever it will fit in. Probably we will have the opportunity to start them again at the correct date and time.

Take care

It seems that the list in SailOnline race archive original.xls not complete. I can't find
Miami to Kingstown dec 02nd
Rome to Tripoli dec 06th
Round White Island Race nov 26th
Round White Island Race 2 dec 15th
Dubai to Muskat Race nov 25th
Ernestas (ernissss)
Correct erniss. These files go until November 2009, as I have indicated in my post. Mid-November 2009 in fact, when the race committee started its work.

The race committee is mainly using these two files to find older races that can be rerun. We therefore do not need them to be updated on a frequent basis.

This is my humble proposal for a race offshore of Rio de Janeiro.
The circuit is based on an actual race that I sailed a few times.
There are some modifications to make more exciting for Sol.
I designed the race in Google Earth as per Francois (Incognito) tutorial. This is my first time working in Google Earth, so please review it as necessary.

Nice race, Antonio. When does the real one take place? Is there a web page?

Two remarks regarding the kmz file:

- You should give a name to the start, the waypoints, and the finish. Example: 'Copacabana - Waypoint 5'

- I would merge the invitation into the description, perhaps as follows:

'A 460 NM race in the waters offshore of Rio de Janeiro. For those of us tired of shovelling snow and walking in boots, an opportunity to wear flimsy T-shirts and flip-flops. We set sail from the Iate Clube of Rio de Janeiro, then head to the magnificent city of Buzios, turn around to beautiful Ilhabela, and finish in Rio.'
Hi Francois,

Here it is the updated "kmz" file with your comments.
I really don't know if they still do this race in RL. This was 20+ years ago when I still lived overthere.
We used to sail on 1/2tonners and OneTonners. It was a 3 days affair.
Here on SOL we could do (I think) in less than 48hours on a VO70. Maybe even less if we get good winds.
Also, the real race didn't allow to go thru the Ilhabela strait, but for SOL this would more interesting.
Note that in the leg from Rio to Buzios there are many little island that here on SOL we will be able to cut corners and again make the race more interesting.
The idea here is to re-live my childhood.
I hope we all have fun.
It will all depend on the wind. If we get a weekend with light winds this could turn into a painful race. But, we sailors know that already. Don't we ?
Thanks again for considering this race.

Find attached a proposal for a race around the Frisian Isles. It is a non existing race so i hope it is useable this way.

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.
