Unraced but Proposed Races

Hi RC.... Plenty of "white" in May. Looks like a good opportunity to run some of the pending races already set up as listed in your spreadsheet.

If the server can handle it, I would suggest running at least 2-3 of the shorter(3-5day)events. Perhaps Lindesfarne, NE Archipelago, Hebrides Slalom, etc. Would also suggest reopening the discussion of how long to keep races open if this is a limiting factor for running more races and cleaning up the list a bit.

Should be a fun month!!

Hi ShamPir - thanks for checking the calendar. As always I keep an eye on what is still pending... and trade off "busyness" with what else is running.

The Lindisfarne will be run in June and I've just realised I haven't updated the thread running on that one.

76T has also suggested we look at the Shackleton Challenge for a gap-filler but I believe he is away at the moment.

The NE Archipelago I thought you were keeping for rough weather... if not then it is definitely long overdue for running!

The New Hebrides Slalom (not British Isles but Asia/Pacific) is another good one.. I had been waiting for SWR to get past Cape Horn so that we were out of the area.

Thank you!
Great ideas!
I will renew my focus to watch the NE US coast for a good spring-time low to blow through and let you know. The others all sound fun as well.

Always good to have some 75-200nm sprints waiting in the can to fill the gaps.

Thanks and great job as always RC!!

Swiftsure Lighthouse Race, Rund Skagen,Fyn Cup prep-race, Hiroshima-Kure, Mini 800NM (2 parts), Manila Race, May TransAT....
Bohusracet :-) I will try to stay awake the entire race this time
captjack - Excellent suggestions thank you!

spackel - we last raced the Bohusracet course in September, so its a bit recent but... it will run again for sure!!

Hi RC -

Time to load SWR leg 7? Starts in 3 days...

BTW nice avatar pic!

hugs, Ricos

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.
