Dear all,

Race suggestions are of course welcomed from all members of the SailOnline community.However, it is a privilege only of those with SYC Membership to design and submit formal races.

To propose a new-to-SOL race, simply use




and then post the resulting kmz file, together with a brief description of what you propose in a new thread in this Forum.

then

Once you have your Google Earth file, please start a thread in this Forum with the race name as its title so that SOLers can see your proposal.

That was fast. Your race is almost ready to go!

I would like to have a test run in January before the real thing at the end of June.

I was thinking of starting it either on Saturday 23 January as a week-end race, or on Tuesday 26 January as a week race. Do you have a preference? Later dates also possible of course.

What boat(s) would you like us to use for this race?

Any preference for the starting time (keep in mind that there are players all over the world)?

Regards,

Francois

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.
