These have been pulled from the bottom of the archive. I checked the finish time of the leaders and the last 60% of the fleet to be sure they could be done in a weekend. This is a work in progress. More to come later.

I suggest changing some of the boats out though, a lot of the early races were run in a "40 footer". As this has a note in the archives that says "do not use". The longer races could be sailed in Seacarts or Open boats or 50~70' race boats.

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.
