12 October 2017


This was the second race of the 2017 Q3Q4 40ft Championships . Despite the best efforts of all involved with publicising the rules for this brilliant championship, there continue to be people who, for whatever reason, pay no attention and, as a consequence, find themselves DSQ from the race in question. The series permits a discard but it really is a pity that somehow the requirement to exercise judgment to select the best boat, out of a choice of three, but to race each no more than twice, just doesn’t seem to register with some!

Racing around the southern coast of Ireland at the start of the winter gale season was always going to be interesting and so it proved to be. Facing strong winds ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Ophelia, the SOL fleet arrived in Dublin in time to celebrate the finish and be away before the real storm!

The three-boat podium shows who raced their choices best and, the race podium is a tribute to those who managed to pip their Class 40 competitors to the top spots. Well done guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
