  • Re: SWR Leg 6 Finish
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    I don't really follow that logic. Instead of having a realistic finish or a shortened course for an appropriate finish to an ocean race, we have ended up with a course that will need numerous dcs to navigate a difficult mark rounding, avoid many islands and a 10nm final leg that will likely be upwind? The finish could have been 3nm east at the entrance to the inner harbour, where most of the local coastal and ocean races start and finish.

    The last WP Motuihe Buoy is very unlikely to be used the real boats. They will go down the Rangitoto Channel and be seen from the suburbs on the North Shore. This is a historic course that has been used on many previous ocean races. Very few ocean races or even the longer coastal races would have a mark to the SE of Motuihe Island.

    The finish in Auckland should be revised with the WP (if needed) located off North Head. Good practice with ocean races such as this would be to have the finish in relatively open water to allow those who like sleeping or working to have a reasonable chance of finish with dcs. I suggest the finish is in Rangitoto Channel.

    Very sad news. I sailed with Steve for a few years and he introduced me to SOL. He was always ready with an opinion and was a great sailor. Cheers mate.

    Very sad news. I enjoyed many a chat with Jim (javaboat). I'm looking across the blue sky and white caps on the ocean thinking of you, goodbye javaboat.

    The calendar is quite busy late Nov / early Dec, but there might be capacity to include this. The SWR Leg 2 will be well underway and there are a few week races.

    Do you think timed or fleet?

    Thanks RC, looks good. We might need to mention that the offshore mark means that the island can be passed on either side, before and after the mark.

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!

Southampton to Punta del Este 2024

Sailonline is delighted to offer our sailors a 'reversed' Atlantic ocean race. As the RTW championship Atlantic part takes a detour to the Bahamas, we will offer you a reversed course as we will not do the 'usual' leg this year either. It is the July edition of this year's Ocean Championship. Our boat is the OD_65v3.
