    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread MARCH 2014.
    I appreciate that the Huelva course in not chosen for a championship race yet another time.

    One question regarding March 2nd. Is the announced race start an artifact from the February schedule, or does the second leg of the Steinlager2 RTW race start already on Sunday?

    Yet another question. Has there been a lot of negative feedback regarding different start times for the two sprint races? I personally don't care that much, I am just curious.

    I recommend the book "Championship Tactics - How anyone can sail faster, smarter, and win races" written by Gary Jobson and Tom Whidden with Adam Loory-
    ISBN 0-321-04278-7
    St Martin's Press, New York, 1990

    It is written in a narrative style that I found easy to follow (much easier than Bethwaite's book).
    It also has a pew pages on polars, VMG, and VMC that should get anyone started who is unfamiliar with those concepts.

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. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
