RC, I am not sure about the Dubai - Muscat race. If I remember correctly, there was a lot of complaining about the lack of progress due to the poor wind conditions in both races.


(I should add the race was repeated in December last year.)

Agree on Dubai-Muskat due to having raced it twice in a short span. (I thought it was an interesting race though :-)

Anyone want to find another week-race in the archive to suggest for that slot?

A few of us have been talking about the possibility of scheduling a "weather decides" race where the start date is known ahead of time but the course is decided pretty last minute to take advantage of interesting weather patterns (similar to how the Newfoundland-Azores played out). This obviously needs timely input from some of our race-design team and extra work for RC... Once the race was open for reg it would be firm.
How would you fancy a trip through the Mergui Archipelago instead?

Too hard, maybe?

Schakel - oddly enough The Horn has just prepared a four-race Asian series .... could easily tag your Mergui run on to the end of that.

What a coincidence eh?

The week race needs to be something relatively DC-able I think - aimed as they are at people who don't have much time to SOL.

I agree about the Dubai-Muscat... so I have removed it from the slot.

I am late here but that big triangule off the coast of Brazil that I sent you while back is a week long race (on our big 125ft Cat).
Just an idea :)
zero - I was just thinking that you submitted your race a while back... lets go with that one :-) Thanks!!

Let me set it up over the weekend and I will come back to you via email if there are any questions (otherwise it will be to let you have a brief sneak-preview before the race is archived until we use it!!) :-D

Do you want to give it a fun name (rather than Salvador-Noronho-Trindade)??

I have just amended the calendar and put in the conventional name.. do hope you come up with a kewl alternative one though!!

something "fishy" here:
Baltic Blitz 2 is West Coast of Baltic (going NE)
Baltic Blitz 1 is East Coast of Baltic (goind SW)
or am I being daft?
Hi Svein - Baltic Blitz 1 starts in Travemunde and finishes in Tallinn going via waypoints at Greifswalder Oie, Gdansk Basin, Baltiysk, Klaipeda and Cape Kolkas.

So.. deffo heading NE!! :-) Hence the location description of Baltic E Coast. Would you prefer something else?

As for BB2? I haven't set that up but checking the kmz it is deffo a SW course from Estonia to Denmark!!
The distance for "Lake Superior Lights" is 600 nm
None so blind
