    Steering my buddy's boat - he let me have the wheel just long enough to snap a pic, hahaha!

    Finished the Christmas Island Race already (did really well by brellis boat standards) and some empty SOL days before the next race begins.

    A few years ago I determined to start and finish ~every~ race, so for a while now it seems like I've ~always~ had a boat in the water on some race or another, every day of the year, until the past couple of days. Guess that's a mark of improvement!

    Looking at the RANKINGS, WRmirek has ten 1st place finishes in the past three months for a perfect ranking! Has that been done before?

    Several years ago, I was catching up to the pack in some race. I came across Bimmer's boat, bbq'd. He started moving again and I noticed him saying in the chat "how about a match race to the next marker?" or something like that. He had spotted me a lead, beat me to the marker pretty easily anyway - but he did so with very cheerful, joyous and helpful hints in his chat comments. In more recent years, I've participated in many Practice Races with him, always a happy experience. Don't even feel like I miss him yet - his presence is emanating all over the Memorial Race, as if he's still here with us! RIP Finn aka Bimmer

    Passing along his info:

    After hospitalization, he's recuperating at home. He's still too foggy and weak to do all the tacking and gybing one does in our races, but he's looking forward to getting back out on the virtual water some day soon!

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.
