A3 Series Leg1: Adelaide to Melbourne
A 468 NM race across the south east corner of mainland Australia. This area is the confluence of three weather patterns: an icy cold blast from the south west off Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, south east from the Tasman Sea and north west off the hot deserts of central Australia. Weather systems move west to east and Melbourne usually gets Adelaide's weather 2 days later. Be prepared to experience all weather systems during the race.

AGage gave us his race, Agage's Tour Downunder. Our gift to his memory is the A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series. This race is Leg 1 of the series. Starting off his club in suburban Adelaide and finishing in Melbourne's Port Phillip just off Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron. AGage sailed an Aust Lightweight Sharpie, an evolution of the 12 sq mtr Sharpie last seen in the Olympic Games in 1956 in Melbourne. RMYS was the yachting HQ for the 1956 games.

Here is a message received from Aaron's Family

Dearest admin and all Solers,

Your tributes to Aaron have been unbelievable in number and in content. I cannot begin to tell you the effect they have had on Aaron's family. It is with such love and pride that we read them.

Now to the Race. Thankyou to all those who have spend their valuable time setting up this race in Tribute to Aaron. He would have been totally humbled by all your work, but very excited to see this race around his beloved Australia, starting at his home club and starting on his birthday. What a tribute to our beautiful son, father, brother, uncle and dedicated Soler.

We will be watching the race with sad but overflowing hearts to all who made it possible and to all those who sail in it.

Fair Winds Solers and may you enjoy every moment of this very special race.

We love you all,

The family of Aaron Gage

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky.
