Like all have said here, thanks for everything you have done and the help given.
A great tribute to a great sailor who will always be missed
Aaron, You and your passion are missed. Winning legs at A3 series was quite emotional for me.

You great legacy to SOL will last.
It has been too long since I posted a verse. What better time than now...

Ode to Aaron

All around AUS we have raced
ALL 4 Aaron the rest of us chased
And the thoughts of our friend
Shall not come to an end
His legacy firmly in place

It was Tyger's rare gift we employed
To recall AGage and all he enjoyed
The competitive edge,
His life never a "hedge"
But full-on and with hearty "Ahoy!"

The A3 is now at the dock
We think back, reflect and take stock
Of what it has meant
To complete this event...
We wish we could tun back the clock.

Our crewmate keeps watch on our fleet
As we BBQ, chat and compete
His memory stays
With us on through our days
On our reaches, our runs and our beats.



See you over the horizon, mate.
We miss you.

SP
Each of us plays the hand we are dealt in life.
We turn each card over as we live.
It is never how long we play, but how well----and immortality comes when they remember our name.
We will remember Agage in SOL for a long time.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Thank you for this great race and all you have done to develop SOL. Vale Aaron.
Just miss you every day, Aaron.

Sailonline has finally sailed round Australia and the individual legs of the A3 race will undoubtedly be dusted off and raced again and again in the future.

On Friday, 28 June at 2000utc we will start our last and most Aaron-like race - a quick zoom round the waters offshore his home-yacht club. We aren't racing Sharpies but our Soto 30 should prove sporting enough!

I have run this last AG race late just to make it so - AGage was and is still is the best - we chatted and virtually hugged on SOL and I still think about him every day... LONG LIVE AGAGE!!!!! ;)

Cheers!

Aaron had the patience to answer my emails with my questions.
Few things surprises me, but when I heard the news I was in disbelief.
I am still not want to believe. Maybe he is in meditation somewhere in the Australia outback.
Man. if you are reading this; I miss you.
Antonio

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
