Board » General Discussion » NY-SF start time

Page: 1 2 3 4 Next

Hi all,
NY-SF is a record attempt, as such we should want the fastest possible conditions... I requested the start time change to Thursday, it is now clear that a later start is much faster.

Since postponing a race twice is unprecedented and there is another race on Friday, please post if you support another move!!!

*update for 2230 wx*
Well nevermind. A later start still is favored, but the huge differences in the first 72h have been erased, and what happens in the light air is ultimately luck.

_________________________

PLEASE NOTE THAT TO CHANGE THE START A SECOND TIME WILL REQUIRE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FOR IT BEFORE 1200utc TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, 6 MARCH.

Faster is better.
Nuff said....

<<DO NOT USE FOR NAVIGATION>>
Friday seems to be the fastest day of the race, go for it!
As a first-timer on SOL I am just looking forward to a challenging race with realistic weather and helming scenarios.
I will be happy to go along with the majority even if Thursday noon looked like the start of a hairy ride.
robert1 21:9 Well....This race will take 6-7 weeks ?....and the wx at start will mean nothing at the rounding of The Horn and the long sail up the west coast of SA.....I vote for start at schedulde time...

Actually the best start time to get us to the doldrums faster would be around 02:00~03:00 thur the 7th.
But I vote no more changes. Let's just race.

Newbie that I am, it is tempting to abstain.

That said, I favor picking the 'best' day in a 5-day forecast ... then switching to a 48hr forecast to prevent second guessing.

Of course, there is the alternative of adding a timed race adjunct to the one with all the boats. So, keep the registration open for a while. Late entries might not win the race, but they might set the record.
Start as anounced!

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
