Dear all,

Race suggestions are of course welcomed from all members of the SailOnline community.However, it is a privilege only of those with SYC Membership to design and submit formal races.

To propose a new-to-SOL race, simply use




and then post the resulting kmz file, together with a brief description of what you propose in a new thread in this Forum.

then

Once you have your Google Earth file, please start a thread in this Forum with the race name as its title so that SOLers can see your proposal.

That was fast. Your race is almost ready to go!

I would like to have a test run in January before the real thing at the end of June.

I was thinking of starting it either on Saturday 23 January as a week-end race, or on Tuesday 26 January as a week race. Do you have a preference? Later dates also possible of course.

What boat(s) would you like us to use for this race?

Any preference for the starting time (keep in mind that there are players all over the world)?

Regards,

Francois

Good timing. I was looking for race ideas in and around Europe. ;)

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.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

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.
