Hi RC,

Calendar is looking very good.
I just checked the start time for the Kapiti-Chetwodes race. As it stands the race will start 8 am Saturday morning NZ time. Most kiwis will be sailing on Saturday's. Could we move the start time too the 2nd October 0600 please. This will mean a 7pm start Saturday for us Kiwi's. By then most will be home, exhausted and drunk from our day's sailing :)

Cheers NZL_undercover
Tazu - to have a link to the SOL calendar on the homepage is a nice idea. Perhaps lets wait a little while until we are satisfied that the calendar format is working and then we can ask the SOLgods if a link on the homepage is doable. It will be essential to keep the calendar always up to date - nothing is more irritating than visiting a website that claims to have a calendar only to find it is months or sometimes years out of date!! So if there is a dynamic link on the homepage, the target will always have to be the most current!

In the meantime, if folks find it hard to get to the Races Forum they can always click on the Homepage Races Tab/race archive and see the races that are already set up :-)
NZL_undercover - done!

See attached!

I have also added a bright green (for GO!) border to each cell that contains a start date... that seems to highlight the starts pretty well.

What do you all think??
Nice work RC thank you :)
A little tweaked and now clickable link instead of obvious attachment!

September 2010

Nice work on the calendar.
Just 2 things on the September calendar. First the week numbers and the dates don't match. Sept 17th is a Friday in week 37 not week 38. Could be a bit confusing. Also delete the attachment for august.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Mike - thank you for your comments! I have now corrected the week numbers (for September and the other months) but unfortunatley no-one seems to know how to delete attachments... maybe I should just make a new thread called Current Calendar!!

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.
