Reports

Commentary

A fine breeze welcomed 138 SOLers, including at least a dozen locals, to the starting line just off Cape Town's Mouille Point for our first outing in our spanking new C2R74, designed by Mark Mills specifically for our virtual Cape to Rio 2021 race slated for January 2021. Unusually, the breeze was from the south and so it was immediately off at a fast and furious pace to a leeward mark north of Robben Island, with the fast boys all opting to depart on starboard, aiming to gybe just in front of the rocks at Bloubergstrand. At the turn onto a fetch south west, it was hard to tell who was in the lead, but by the time the leaders were hardening up, again at Bloubergstrand, for the beat home, three boats were starting to show in front, calmxy, Zorba777 and SadlerSailing, various other likely lads (rumskib, rafa, Kipper1258, bonknhoot) having in the meantime come to greater or lesser grief.

In the end, it was calmxy who just shaded it from Zorba777, and how that went in more detail, you can read in Zorba777's fine report under the button above, and see in Bimmer's terrific timelapse under the filmstrip below. calmxy's result takes him into a strong lead in the Q4 Sprint Championships and only points off the lead in the 2020 Overall after discards. All to play for then, calmxy, in the last sprint of the year off Southern California on December 19th!

Adriano's Brazil Run 2021
Adriano, who sails the SOLship batatabh, together with all his Brazilian friends bids you welcome to this amazing 300nm race in SOL's Albin 79 along their country's beautiful coastline. The race starts in Guanabara Bay, mistakenly considered a river mouth by its first explorers in January 1502, resulting in the settlement on its shore being named January's River (Rio de Janeiro). After passing Rio's iconic Sugar Loaf, the course takes racers along the north coast of the beautiful Ilha Grande to a turn for home at Ilhabela (another 'beautiful island') and a finish off the famous Copacabana beach!
