The SWR will be over in the first couple of weeks in April. The weekend of the 14th might be a big enough window for leg 1 of the Shackleton race.

LA-Tahiti starts on the 20th with some fast boats entered. Can we stomach crossing the Pacific the other way so soon after doing it W-E :-) ?

Actually the 20th might be a better start date for Shackleton as well.

Both would probably involve running 3 races during the Sea2Sea, but at only 20nm I'm not sure that that's an issue.
76T why do you say

The SWR will be over in the first couple of weeks in April.

As far as I can see from the official race website the last race won't complete until July!!!


I think we will run the Tahiti TransPac later in the year (we aren't buddied) and... it is the Vuelta that is 20nm not the Sea2Sea which is 295nm I've corrected the calendar)!

But we definitely need to get a Shackleton on the move .. preferably before we head into Tall Ships season!

Leg 5 :-P

Leaders should be done in 2weeks, with a longer gap this time until the next leg starts.

(sol-boat posting in the forums is stranger than ever... I've been logged in as 76T, posted and raced/reload clients since last time I used sol to check a race... nothing changed since my previous post or the one on Lolla's thread, and I show logged in as 76 grrr)
Fab!! If you think we have time to get Shackleton under way then lets go for it :-) I am deliberately keeping the calendars relatively spare of detail to allow flexibility!

Re swapping log-ins, I think it just takes a moment or two for the server to effect a change if you use the same browser. I tend to use different browsers, IE for sol, Chrome for 'Chaser.

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.

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.
