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.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024

Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
