Inco - what information do you still need for the Twisted race??
If you are referring to the link in Incognito's first post in this thread to the Google Earth Race Proposals PDF, you can find that file here:


I saved a copy there when someone else was having trouble opening it as well.


When I use that link, I just get "The file link that you requested is not valid."

I'm trying to propose a race that starts Friday 18th. Can anyone help??

Although I have no Official capacity the Race Committee's file for Scheduled Races in June does Include the Newport - Bermuda event slotted for June 18th. (650 nm - VOR70)

"Excellent" [said in a Montgomery Burns stylee].

Hi Baggus,

Fixed it.

Has anyone suggested following:
- Gotland runt
- Espoo-Suursaari race

Also some legendary (old one) would be nice...
Juhani - yeps SOL does race both these courses, in fact the Gotland is scheduled for next week!

SOL will probably be racing the Suursaari in August or September (at least SOL boats won't be damaged by strong winds as the IRL ones were this year!!).
you require us to sign up for that file sharing program/website just to submit a race proposal?
Fortunately it doesn't work anyway.
I get the same error messages others get.
Good thought though, for file sharing.
What now?
St. Lucie - Jupiter Ocean Racing Association (SJORA)
You don't need to join the yahoogroup nor any other Website for proposing races.

After Designing a race in Google Earth, you'll need to save it as a File to your Disk.
Then write a Posting in this Thread, as you have done for Florida Bahamas. Below your typing Window, you'll find a few Buttons. Click on the top most, choose your File and click "open" in the openend Window. You'll see your choosen Filename behind the Button. If you then Post your Topic, the File will be attached to it.

You don't need to open this Attachment. It wasn't really ment to be uploaded, but i couldn't avoid uploading it after choosing it before posting and i couldn't remove it afterwards, so be Carefull, what File to choose. ;-)

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.
