Nopes heheh just left myself on a TWA - talk about fickle/shifty winds!!!
We started with Tall Ships(sailing),continued with Viking Longship(sailing+rowing)the next would probably be Roman Galleons from 1st century(mostly rowing) and finally Roman Galleons from 3rd century(only rowing).

Than we would be ready to change our name from SOL to ROL. lol
We haven't tried a polar for kite flying windsurfers yet ?
None so blind
Might try this one , at least its modern

But i can do with the oldies as wel as long as there is something modern in paralel.

“We may have arrived on different ships, but we are all in the same boat now!” Martin Luther King Jr.
I made one of those carts when I was 10 (~1981) from 2 skateboards, the shower curtain and some curtain rods... And it worked!!! (But mum was not happy about the shower curtain, or the ones on my bedroom floor). I even have a pic of me 'sailing' down the street on the first version which was just a single skateboard I stood on - I should hunt it down and post ;)

I sometimes lament the money I could have made if I was 22 and not 10, and had the forethought to develop and market it :(

Aland Sea TIMED Race 2023
Norrtalje Segelsallskap, 70km NE of Stockholm was founded in 1920, and time was when the society’s season opened with a challenging offshore race from the club line off Flaten island at the mouth of the long and narrow Norrtaljeviken, out onto a triangular course around the Aland Sea, to finish at Simpnas slightly to the north on Bjorko island - some 78nm in total. This will be the 6th time that SOL is running this race, and just like its previous iteration almost exactly 2 years ago will be held as a TIMEDrace in pretty Club Swan 50s.
