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.
