Inviting SOLers to experience ‘old school’ sailing 1968 style.
SRC is inviting SOLers to commit to emulating the real racers in this 50th year anniversary of Robin Knox Johnson’s voyage in Suhaili by committing to race your similar SOL boat (Rustler 36) with no outside assistance, i.e. _NOA, for the feeder, fleet and timed races. See what they have to experience whilst still availing yourself of confirmed six-hour weather (be most grateful as the real sailors do not have even that benefit), dry clothes, a warm and steady bunk, hot food, showers, a country walk to the pub, library etc. and some company etc.!
As a RETRO Race, for the Golden Globe, generally speaking only equipment that was available to Robin Knox Johnston on Suhaili in 1968 may be used. That means NO GPS, Chart plotters, electronic wind instruments, electric autopilots, electronic log, iPhone, satellite phones, digital cameras, computers, cd players, pocket calculators electronic clocks and watches, water makers, carbon fibre, Kevlar, spectra etc… so it is back to film cameras, cassette tapes, sextants, wind up clocks, trailing logs and Dacron sails, wind vanes and typewriters.
Suhaili was a slow, sturdy 32ft double-ended ketch based on a William Atkins ERIC design. She was heavily built of teak and carried no computers, GPS, satellite phone nor water-maker, and Robin completed the challenge with no outside assistance or aid of modern day shore-based weather routing advice. He had only a wind-up chronometer and a barograph to face the world alone, and caught rainwater to survive.
Let us see how we match up to Sir Robin and those brave enough to go out to sea and accept the challenge. Whilst SOL is unable to totally mirror the course for the real racers (see http://goldengloberace.com/the-route/ ) SOL is substantially sailing the same course after a feeder leg and then in a fleet race ,including the 90 minute stopover in Storm Bay Tasmania, followed by a Timed race back to Les Sables d'Olonne.
Please add your boat name below in a response to this post as a record of your commitment to sail Seat Of The Pants (SOTP) for the feeder and then the whole race of about 300 days!

I accept the rules, because that's the way I always surf.
Greetings, Trampantojo.

Galloo Islands Sprint 2019
There is so much more to New York than that collection of towering skyscrapers at the mouth of the Hudson river. Upstate, it is rolling pastures, mountain ranges and lakelands, stretching all the way to the U.S. border with Canada – the St Lawrence Seaway and the waters of two great inland seas, Lakes Erie and Ontario. This race takes you right to the top of this bucolic wonderland for a 24nm sprint in classy Club Swan 50s out to the historic lighthouse on the southern tip of Galloo Island on the eastern reaches of Ontario, round the island and back to Henderson Bay. Enjoy!
