Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Seven Seas of Asia

And here's another proposal from bonknhoot.
Seven Seas of Asia.
Not oceans (even though The Seven Seas are oceans).
So not quite ocean racing, but long challenging races nonetheless in all sorts of climates and weather patterns.
Apologies not quite the precision of kmz files, but enough info for OPS to create a course from.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
