Fully agreed with the seniments above re the client upgrade... Kudo's to Aaron (wherever he may be sailing fair winds now)
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Toujours ému lors des courses au sujet d'Aaron Gage. je ne pouvais pas faire les autres. Dommage
Agage's 100 Race 2014

SOL's gift to the memory of AGage was a year long series of races circumnavigating Australia. This was the final sprint of that memorial and now being raced to mark the 2nd anniversary of the too-sudden end to the life of this remarkable SOLer. These were Aaron's homewaters - he was a total competitor so... race to win!

Grazie per tutto Aaron, riposa in pace.
While six years seems a long time, in so many ways it feels like just yesterday that we learned of Aaron's unexpected death. Every day on Sailonline, there is something to remind us that without him the site would be so much poorer. {{{Hugs to his family}}}
The AGage 50 is being raced again (first run in 2015).... and one of the races Aaron designed (the Tour Downunder) is also in our 2019 Q3 calendar.

For those new to Sailonline this thread, and our honouring Aaron's memory with at least one race a year, should show just how remarkable a contribution he made, not just in matters technical, but also in the enormous amount of personal time he gave to helping all new to the platform.

<raises a glass> Still missed, mate.

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.
