Merci flouflou - I have uploaded this file to the SOL Race Committee forum on YahooGroups (go to YahooGroups and find the group sailonline_rc ) so it will be in the queue to be loaded on to SOL!!

"dicover with flouflou, in a 170 nm (aproximatly) the islands situated around St Nazaire and the beautiful french coast" is good for the tilte ?? rc or more long???? I think a first 40 is a good boat, with a first 40, the race will be duration aproximatly 2 days or less.... is good????

flouflou - that loosk pretty good for a description to me ..unless you also wish to say a small something about St Nazaire (where we will start) and La Baule (where we will finish? I imagine both have a long history of yachting?

Thank you for confirming the boat type!

flouflou - OK!!! Well maybe you can ask in French chat if some of the IRL sailors there have an idea of what can be said to "publicise" your excellent race?
dicover with flouflou, in a 170 nm (aproximatly) the islands situated around St Nazaire and finish the race on the beautiful beach of baule...

Sorry rc, i have no much idea
"This race starts in one of the largest port in France, Saint Nazaire it continues through ile d'yeu, belle ile, ile groix et l'ile d'houat and it ends on one of the most beautiful beaches France in La Baule".

Melbourne to Osaka 2023
Welcome to Melbourne for Sailonline's alternative version of the Melbourne to Osaka Double Handed Yacht Race - a 5000 nautical miler. This year again we're racing the RP-66, but the route is unlimited what comes to waypoints. Because the IRL version does not run this year, we took the freedom to make our own route!
It could be a long race, east or west, and of course some doldrums to negotiate!

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.
