    I'll miss my SOL friend Bimmer, always on the "Friends" list. He tried to teach me routing (and spent a couple of hours trying to get me started), but I never learnt it, definitely not the teacher's fault. So I'm SOTP and will probably remain so.
    Where ever you are now Bimmer, I wish you fair winds!

    I strongly support Zorba's idea! I mentioned it in the chat a week or so ago, and have briefly discussed it with RC.
    But it was 'only' 20 years Ulysses was away. I think it could be a good idea to make it into a series of races, 3 or 4 maybe. And following the (first) map in Zorba's link.
    Read the book! Preferably on hexameter, even if it's hard in the beginning.
    Since we're not rowing, I think we should choose modern and quite fast boats, lest we should spend 20 years at a virtual sea.

    Hi guys!
    Seems really nice! I don't know if it's just me, or something else, but I've had (more than just) bad luck using the predictor. Unexpected bbqs quite often. It seems to be that my DCs had been set too early every time, i.e. I've trusted them too much. Once, certainly, twice, maybe (sloppy reading/setting DCs), but a lot of times? Some traces are lost, but some are still readable.
    Or do I sleep too much at night? Don't hesitate to tell me, if you think so!
    Will be great, once I've learnt how to!

    The Twister will definitely do in Multen. Only at places is the lake shallow; you can never get more than 375 m from nearest shore, but it's 24 m deep here and there! And since we're virtual, it doesn't matter, or is the 'mapper' considering depth?
    Don't hesitate if you've got other requirements or questions!

    This post was moved from the thread Here is how to propose new races.
    Hi!
    I've used your pdf instruction file, but RC didn't get my .kmz to work. But if you do, this is my suggestion. A small boat (but maybe fast) would be the most realistic. We don't have any dinghies!
    Maybe I should change start and finish points, to avoid crossing lines?
    Please let me know if the file is ok, and if I should adjust anything, if you think it's good idea. But the challenge of sailing a small lake would be interesting, I think :)

    Yeppers! Or is it nope? No routers, digital nor human, except for my own brain (which is no good at routing...). Promise! As will be seen from my results ;-) FW to all, routerers and non-routerers!

Illas Cies Sprint 2021
It is 550nm from Dingle to Vigo, and from Pensacola to Yucatan as well, but at the mouth of Vigo's Ria we find the wonderful nature reserve of the Cies Islands, breeding ground for more than 20,000 doubly-blessed seagulls, doubly-blessed as Vigo is also home to Europe's largest fishing fleet. It rains even more in Vigo than in Dingle, and especially in winter, but let's race anyway, from Vigo's glorious old-world Real Club Nautic around the islands and up the Ria de Pontevedra to Combarro, where you may just espy through the fog bonknhoot's Damacle wintering ashore. About 32nm in magnificent Melges 40s.

We will be joining them for their 3,886nm migration in our 90ft monohull.
