Was trying to post this last night:

RC was asking about router forecasts for the Rum Run. It's still over 4 days to the race so any router output would be suspect at best. Last year the race was won by PetrM in 7 days 5 hours and 25.7 min. Nearest to 24 hours behind him was DariusDr (#118) 8 days 5 hours 31.18 min. Closest to 30 hours behind PetrM was Echium (#145) in 8 days 11 hours 30.67 min. Last boat to finish was Renegade (#187) in 9 days 13 hours 21.48 min.

So it does look like moving up to the 10th should work. The only question now is how long is race 3 of the SYCC?
Ahoy, dreadful pirates ! Arrrr....

"Rackham the Pinkish" is me name for this Rum Run.

Sayya ! Ya'd betta use it to get me answer ! Aye !

the writers of Blackadder would have loved this :-D

Sailonline will shortly be running its annual rum race through the Caribbean. Run in proximity to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19) it has become a tradition for SYC Members to have the option of changing their normal SOL boat names just within this one race to one influenced by the pirate theme.

I'd like to be Barbaneuro if possible
thank you

Current Races:

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2022
Are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St Petersburg?
The Gulf of Finland is still ice‑free, so board your J‑122s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine or ice‑breaker may need to be avoided.
