Your crew may sail around during practice, but once the race starts, their boats must remain at the start :-)

After 15 hours of exhausting sailing, despite being in the first position, ... TWA 0 in Hullberga ... see you in next races. I don't want to repeat this experience ever again ... is a delirium race for only TeamBoats.

In my (usually humble) opinion, these kind of races are not suited for SOL, or the other way around.
SOL is still a navigational simulator.
Rounding sharp corners at boatspeeds over 20 kts in small waters is simply undoable in SOL.

However, I always enjoy the longer races. Even more if we can sail virtually against IRL fleets.

Keep up the good work, SOL is still the best sailing game in terms of strategic sailing.

Cheers and GW,
Arthur. (A dedicated F18-sailor :-) )
If you're still in control, you're not going fast enough.
and yet a comment from a Kiwi "last leg into the finish, happy to finsh this 1. 1 of the best races I have been involved in and there have been many. back to IRL stuff now ( and early sleep). What a marathon!!"

so.... it takes all sorts :-)
Race Report by JakeS

This race was just how description promise; hard one! We had a perfect wind and fast boat. Trickiest thing was to do right decision very quickly for the next course. Do I sail optimal angle a bit longer way, or do I try a shortcut? And only few sec time to make decision! And after passing one island there comes 100 more islands to pass and no time to rest or sleep. This was challenging in different way than our ocean races are.

I'm happy that we sail this, thanks to RC and Smo! Congrats to teamboats and brave solo sailors! This race also attracted a lot of discussion and opinions what is always good thing. Even there was sailors who like this I think we say goodbye to FSAR -race like it was, but we might say wellcome to Archipelago Team Race . . . We’ll see :-)

The degree of difficulty for this Race was as advertised. In the parlance of Le Tour this was an Hors catégorie or quite simply Off the Scale. Particularly vexing was the server response that consistently was in a Jump Plus 1 mode which made course corrections after a miscalculation doubly frustrating.

Special mention should go to Chaos who started 20 min late, finished 4th & did not record a single BBQ. Don't ask me how this was even possible but he should give a seminar after this race.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
