    I'm very glad I had the opportunity to race Bimmer many times and must compliment him again for his last victory at La Rochelle. Flawlessly sailed!
    My condolences to family and friends.
    RIP my friend.

    Amêijoas à Bolhão Pato (Clams Bolhão Pato style)

    Ingredients

    -1kg clams (ruditapes decussatus - see image). This the best variety (I think is the same as italian vongole veraci) but the recipe can be made with other varieties.
    -8/10 garlic cloves slightly crushed and unpeeled
    -a bunch of coriander leaves
    -100ml olive oil
    -lemon juice
    -black pepper
    -White wheat bread to dip in the sauce while eating (see photo)

    This a a delicious and very easy recipe invented by Mr. Bolhão Pato, a portuguese ultra-romantic writer that lived in the second half of the 19th century.

    Soak the clams in water seasoned with salt for 1 to 2 hours. Wash them under running water before cooking.
    Put the olive oil, the crushed garlic and the coriander leaves in a frying pan and saute over low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the clams, stir, cover the pan with a lid and cook over medium heat until the clams open completely. Shake the pan from time to time.
    Turn off the heat, season with the lemon juice and serve.

    Don't forget to dip the bread in the delicious sauce while eating

    I would certainly enjoy racing again the Meddle Sea race (aka Valetta Sprint in SOL). Please consider adding it to the calendar.

    Excellent app!

    On my iphone, to enter a course, it doesn't allow me to input the decimal point. The numeric keypad that shows to input a course has a comma and not a point.

    The density of wind barbs with the high resolution wx makes the screen too crowded.

    The Q3 race calendar states that this race is buddied. With which one/whom?

    It is very sad news to know that my fellow countryman and good friend, João Malafaia, is no longer among us.
    My condolences to his family. Rest in Peace.

    Dear João,

    I think we have to find a 3rd portuguese sailor to have a chance in this ranking. We must convince some friends of ours.

    The finish line of this race has a point over land. I think that this should be corrected.

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
