I do not believe that SOL has, as of yet, sailed on the waters of Lake Ontario.

A couple of viable options may be found here:

http://www.lo300.org/racers-info/courses

P.S.

Technically speaking SOL has dropped anchor there (Lake Erie Round the Islands Challenge #307) but certainly a full scale course has yet to be devised.

Lake St. Clair is the red-headed stepchild of the Great Lakes & The Detroit River is not visible under current SOL map rendering technology.

Just saying . . .

Port Huron to Niagara Falls would be Da Bomb

None so blind
Heh heh... missing Erie too. Eheh poke poke nudge ;-)
Hey 76!!

Don't jest. Some time ago I made a half hearted proposal that this sort of thing be applied in SOL. I feel that it would appeal to the younger sailors getting into SOL. It might make more new sailors have an extra incentive to sail with us here.

Others you might include for yourself are;

Club Champion - Ranking 1
Master mariner - Top 10 results sailor

Cheers Jawz! Anyone else? :)

Club Champion: Held SYC #1.
Master Mariner: Held SYC Top Ten.
Race Win: Individual race winner.
Outstanding Service: Service above and beyond.

#307 - how about that... missed that one nice catch! A few race ideas here - some more practical than others.

Will these medals be assigned automatically?
76, I LOVE this!!

Don't know where you find them.

1) Honour of Triton; 25 consecutive starts and finishes (no DNS/DNF)
Honour of Poseidon; 50 consecutive starts and finishes (no DNS/DNF)

2) How/where would these be displayed? Suggest on the SYC Ranking page under the SOLers name.

3) How far back do we go for calculating badges? 12months/24months/The Big Bang??

4) I volunteer to help with research if there is a data repository to review.

Cool idea!

SP
Cool idea !
Cool!
When we will go trought Panama and Suez channel???
I missing them to complete my sticker´s album ! ;-)
Club Champ - that would be held #1 on any leaderboard, yes?
I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
