I guess I missed the time window for the tag. Still, let it be on record that I am racing SOTP :-)
LaoziSailor

Everything gets done by not doing anything!
I will be sailing SOTP too here, as I use to do in all races, started to use routing program in SWR but get bored of it quickly, we will sail with this race spirit from start to finish, is gonna be interesting and funny
And I also want to say a big THANKS to our beloved SOL comunity, for bringing us this amazing race, to be almost a year sailing around the world is gonna be demanding and super funny, when we finish, we will miss it for a long time
SOTP forever!
It is with regret that I must ask you to delete Bimmer_SOTP from the SOTP list:-(
I thought it would be much more relaxed to sail SOTP, but my nerves and stomach can't handle it.
I simply can't SOL without my router.....
Sorry!
I declare I will sail SOTP/NOA (No Outside Assistance).

Good wind navigation to all.
I will be sailing SOTP and solo with no outside assistance!
Little late on the start, but for the record I undertake to sail SOTP for this race and I declare this just as I slip the mooring lines.

A little late now, but I am sailing SOPT from the start, and will continue to do so.

Great race this one

SOTP... What are you allowed to use? I've been using just the weather as supplied by SOL since the start (a day and a half late starting as I didn't know about the event until after it started!), no outside information at all. However, even using the supplied gribs seems to me to be more info than the real GGR boats are getting.

Seems to me that to be more accurately replicating the real event you should only be using gribs with current conditions, not something with 7 days predictions? What do others think?

Estonian Islands Sprint 2020
Lao and Peerni are two tiny towns with a combined population of little more than 50 souls at the end of the Tostamaa peninsula on the coast of the Gulf of Riga. A ferry departsfrom Lao's harbour, Munalaiu, for the islands of Manilaid and Kihnu across the water, where the permanent resident count is a factor 10 higher. Inwinter the ferry doesn't run and you can drive across the ice to the islandsinstead, but in June beach tourism swells demand, so mind the commercialtraffic, SOLers, as you race this 24nm circumnavigation in handsome Linjett 40s!

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!
