Here is the draft calendar for July 2012 - feel free to suggest additional races if you see gaps!

July 2012

See attached document for races run in July of previous years.

My suggestion for the NE & NW passage hasn't made it to the proposed race list. Do you need more detail on these races or is there some selection process for proposed races?
Hi Scotsman - Did you complete both kmz files? I only recall seeing some numerical waypoints that AGage put together in a kmz file.

Waypoints need to have names... they don't have to be placenames, but something appropriate to your race.

The race needs a name and, as you will see from the guidelines on proposing races (in teh Race Proposals Forum) you need to draft an invitation as well as a race description.

We need to know how long the race will be and what boat you wish to use and, ideally, a sense of how long it will take to complete.

Finally... have you checked that the route you have chosen is actually doable in SOL?

Sorry to have dropped the ball on this - as you can see from the Unraced races list, there are a bunch of long distance races that have been pending for a long time.

Recent improvements in how the server is being managed means we can push former usage limits a little :-)

ok, thanks. I know what I need to do now!
The same thing happened last year when the Race to Mackinac was in the Preliminary Calendar but then was dropped at some point as the Monthly Edition was published. So here we are again I will not assume that it will show up without this extra comment.
None so blind
Hi A2R - I am actually trying to get an official buddy-up for the race but, until I get a yes or a no, I don't want to put anything in the calendar ;-)

But... you weren't to know that so, thank you for the reminder!!
This race has run within SOL every year in sync with the actual event, even before I got here, except last year when this partnering obstacle seems to have obfuscated the scheduling issue. Are we not allowed to mirror this race, even with a different name, unless we receive permission from the sponsoring Yacht Clubs ?

Partnering should be a bonus not a sine qua na.

A2R - if the real race doesn't want us running it with the official name then we will run the course but call it something other /similar. I see that the Race to Mackinac now has some heavy duty sponsors and once the "branding" option has been taken up, I think SOL just needs to be careful.

We WILL be running the course but because of the approach for a buddy-up I don't wish to tread on toes at this point!

I love this race so there is no way we are not doing it this year!!

Dats a promise :-)
RC, thanks for the expanded explanation and reassurances. Lawyers have sharp elbows which is why it is best to let sleeping dogs lie.
None so blind
A2R - still no feedback from the real race organisers so it is now in our calendar as the Chicago-Mackinac 2012.

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.
