  • Re: Aaron James Gage - 1971-2012
    Board » Technical Support
    The AGage 50 is being raced again (first run in 2015).... and one of the races Aaron designed (the Tour Downunder) is also in our 2019 Q3 calendar.

    For those new to Sailonline this thread, and our honouring Aaron's memory with at least one race a year, should show just how remarkable a contribution he made, not just in matters technical, but also in the enormous amount of personal time he gave to helping all new to the platform.

hmm's Delivery 2019
When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
