If possible could the Lake Superior Lights race be moved to the following weekend slot to be more closely aligned with the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald on November 10, 1975.

The last running of this event took less than 2 days for the leader to complete so a Friday start gives an adequate time frame for the fleet to run the course by Sunday night.
None so blind
A2R - to weekend of 10th? Would an 1800utc start on the Friday be OK? or??

Friday the 9th, 1800 utc.

None so blind

I will update the current and October calendars tomorrow :-)

None so blind
A2R - I have been unwell for quite a while now and particularly over the past few days (spending most of Tuesday at hospital) so my apologies for not having changed the calendar as promptly as promised.

I have said the Lake Superior race will be moved in the calendar and so it will be. Probably later today but in any event as soon as I feel able to do it.

Hi sol friends
I noticed that the VendeeGlobe will start soon, 10th November.
I don't see anything like it in the SOL November calender.

Does SOL has a plan for a similar sailing race around the globe?
ard sur malheureusement SOL is not currently set up to run a non-stop race around the globe. We are hoping to be able to do this in the future.

In the past we have taken a global race, made it into legs and had them start quickly after each other but many people were unhappy with this arrangement. For now, then, SOL will not be doing non-stop global races.

Well i think the situation has changed : because now in the Vendée Globe you've got many ice gates. So the gap should be less between a race with legs, and the real race.

Perhaps You could make a "round the world" with leg 1 Olonne - Gough Island Leg 2 Gough - Australian ice gate Leg 3 Australian ice gate - Pacific ice gate Leg 4 Pacific ice gate - Cap Horn and Leg 5 Cap Horn - Olonne But i don't know if it's possible for SOL with 5 legs.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

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.
