As a direct result of comments made in the General Discussions Forum, the August Calendar is undergoing revision. The two attached pics represent the latest model - hopefully closer to a fun calendar for ALL SOLers!!!

As always... please don't hesitate to voice your "constructive" comments!!

New file for 1-21 August, now showing the August TransAt.

CLARIFICATION: Please note that the Round Britain and Ireland race is starting on SATURDAY, 31 July 2010 at 1000utc in line with the information posted on the SOL homepage and NOT as in the August Calendar.

RC, I like the proposed format. There seems like a good mix of long and short races.
Personally, when the timing is right, shorter races suit me. But, that timing can change from day to day let alone week to week and I like the mix of short & long races running together.
I appreciate the changes made so quickly, response times like this for the group will make SOL (if not already) the premier online racing platform.
Sadly, in my line of work my available time is limited. If there is something I can offer to help the team please let me know. I am not tied to a desk or computer, however I can access one at various times during the day/night. Unless I lose satellite connection (which accounts for most of my beachings during racing).
Keep up the good work.
Bear.
REVISION IN LINE WITH RECENT DISCUSSIONS!

ALTERNATIVE style of calendar - using a simple spreadsheet.

What do you think?

Much easier to read. I like it.
The spreadsheet is a plus. This is very good. Keep up the great work!

The sea is lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to sail before I sleep, And miles to sail before I sleep.

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.
