Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar » JUNE 2010

Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category Race proposals.
I have just spent a little time transposing some of the SOL YahooGroup / Race Committee database info into the Calendar function there (for June only so far) to give me a better grasp of races across the date-spectrum (you know what I mean!!!).

For those who can link to this (ie have YahooGroup accounts) the url is this:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ sailonline_rc/cal///group/sailonline_rc/ ?v=6&t=1276884000&pv=2&i=94

For those who can't but want to see the info... attached to this message is a screengrab of the month of June.

Remember - everyone interested in the upcoming calendar can join the SOL Race Committee YahooGroup. It is a Committee in name because that is its intended function... to generate a good calendar of races!!

Over the coming days I will investigate the races that have been run in the past and add them to the calendar.

Please would those of you who have been on SOL for some time suggest favourite races? I would hate for us to miss out on those!!

Thank you in advance to all who will help!!

Latest product of various consultations in chat and by email is attached as a .jpg! Those getting more actively involved in race choosing can see the original in the SOL YahooGroup.

Hope this is meeting some expectations at least... don't hesitate to shout out for specific races that you want to see run in particular months of the year!!

Those of you who have been on SOL for some time will have your favourites and it would be a shame to see them supplanted unintentionally!!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
