    A warning to our Old Poets Society critics.
    (in the form of a 'Tipperary')

    SOL's poets for posterity
    Write rhymes with great sincerity,
    And though their muse may seem obtuse
    With purpose simply to amuse,
    Mockers will be dealt with…
    with great severity!

    About horthes furthest northest.

    A horth is a horth of course off course
    Off course, up north, oh dear, that's worse
    These ditties have to rhyme you see
    At least so said old Hank Hain-ey
    And Mr Ed spoke too and said "Agree-gh"

  • Seven Seas of Asia
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    And here's another proposal from bonknhoot.
    Seven Seas of Asia.
    Not oceans (even though The Seven Seas are oceans).
    So not quite ocean racing, but long challenging races nonetheless in all sorts of climates and weather patterns.
    Apologies not quite the precision of kmz files, but enough info for OPS to create a course from.

  • Re: Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Yep, Dan, that's another option and I agree with you on all points:
    - hate marks in the sea
    - more people using routing
    AND importantly
    - Qt Vlm router now uses 'SOL' interpolation (u/v), so wind in router matches wind in SOL exactly.

    So many words said, what can I add? We will miss you, Finn, your always good humour and matter-of-fact approach to life, and all the working together on set-ups, particulars, race descriptions, time lapses and all the rest. In your memory we plan to race a PYOC from Copenhagen to Svendborg. We will all think and talk of you more then. An announcement will be appearing soon.

  • Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    I think the bottle of Ron Miel has fallen by the wayside at this stage, so why not rename this iconic race Nueva, and take the opportunity to make some course changes for longer legs and more strategic choices and less processional races, as per the attached and set up here on the Beta: http://beta.sailonline.org/breezy/run/987/

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race.

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.
