    Aaron was one of life's "givers", whether it was help or skill, he offered both willingly. He will be sadly missed by us all. My condolences to his family and friends on one of life's most unfair acts.
    Rest in peace.

    Hi all
    I too, am very keen on the timed races, in fact any race which doesn't interfere too much with reality.

    Having discovered a sure way to diminish my pathetic ranking even further, I have stopped partaking in the "race for X hours, go to bed, run into rock" - or weekend races as they are known! (Looking at the entries, I may not be alone in this thought!)

    Now, given the popularity of RC's 'practice races', it occurs to me that there may be others who might prefer a shorter race, ie 8 to 12 hours, to take place during their normal waking hours.
    To be fair to all parts of the world, it would have to actually be 3 races starting say, 30 hours apart (to allow one race to finish before the next starts).
    Although the course would be the same, the wind would be variable, therefore the sailing time, but with a group start at least there would be fair competition within that group. Someone might even be able to figure out some handicap system to compare each group.

    The races would be identical with one start per group, eg
    Race 1. Monday start 08:00 UTC - finish no later than 20:00 UTC (for Europeans, SA, etc)
    Race 2. Tuesday start 14:00 UTC - finish 02:00 Wed (for the USA, Canada, etc)
    Race 3. Wed start 20:00 UTC - finish 08:00 Thurs (for the Aussies and Kiwis).
    (These could just as easily be juggled round to fit a weekend).

    This way, sleep deprivation is not part of the gameplan, and those with others to consider, do not have to risk divorce or death by setting the alarm for 3 am!

    Does anyone see any potential?

    Danny

    A song (to the tune of "Streets of Laredo" - sing with gusto ... (or anyone else :-)

    As I sailed down to the straits of Gibralter,
    The wind in my hair, and enjoying the day,
    I spied a young Soler, with tangled up halyards,
    a mast that was broken, sail-ing the wrong way.

    I thought "shall I help him", as he is in trouble,
    his sails were in tatters and looking like lace,
    I threw him a line, which he fastened securely,
    Now back in the race and we're after first place.

    "I thank ewe" :-D

    Don't worry, these are marks for the practice races held on the last few evenings. They will disappear on recall, one hour from the race start.

Return from Lindisfarne 2019
In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Silverrudder 2019
Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2019
