Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Baikal Lake

@Renegade You mentioned Baikal Lake in the thread about Titicaca. There is an annual iceboat race on Baikal, which could be used as the basis for a SOL race. All we would need is polars for an iceboat. Ice boats can go very fast, so it would probably be fun. What do you think? See: https://www.idniyra.org/2019/10/13/dn-sailing-on-lake-baikal-in-march-2020/

I found info about iceboat polars in "Physics of Sailing: https://tinyurl.com/y9nfzjvd

Hi Zorba,
You might be surprised to find that SOL has been sailing a DN Iceboat polar annually for some years now on Lake Winnebago with the Neenah-Nodaway Yacht club. The boat is super fast.

@Renegade Great! I will post a kmz for Baikal lake iceboat race then. It may never happen, but it's then in the list for whenever...
On this matter and iced-over lakes in general, the DN polar was made with an 11-steden tocht in mind. Lake Khovsgol was the first lake we visited. We did a few more, but then, because the DN is so super fast, which made us switch off Perf Loss (switch of a flick) which of course allows tacking and gybing as often as you like, the ambition faded and only an annual buddied fun race on Lake Winnebago has remained.

Sorry have posted the original proposal x 3. Never get the hang of that attaching to forum posts.

wow, that's a thorough proposal.
Interesting they skated here in Vermont between '83-'85.

We also have Lake Champlain here. It doesn't freeze every year anymore either, but has some islands and is quite long as well.

@Zorba,
Were you able to find a course used?
I have one in mind, but if you have a kmz already attach it. We'll be setting up Q1 soon.

Hi Renegade,

I didn't figure out their exact course and I believe it was/is done in stages. But could start from the South near Irkutsk.
Winds are going to be unpredictable, so depending on how long the race is supposed to be a complete South to North, with a finish near Severobaikalsk would be my choice. The other way round with finish in the South could be done as well. It's a narrow lake, so I don't think waypoints are needed.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
