I also think that several sailing the one boat & helping each other is far more not fair than an early morning start. Or perhaps i need to talk with some so i can sleep longer.
It is becoming clear(er) that SOL will have to post "health warnings" about races that are mirroring ones in reality - as others have said, SOL takes its start times from the race organisers, so next time we will highlight this fact more strongly.

No decision is yet made about Leg 3 and the SYC ranking, so more votes and more opinions are welcome!
Ciao ALL ;)

PARTLY as result of the NZL race having been launched with such short notice , I have dropped from long established SYC leadership to #33 ....YES ...no mistake ...spells correct ...THIRTYTHREE !!!!! ....;)

in spite of that I have voted for things to remain as they are , for three good reasons :

1) I care for the Community happiness and I want those who are to stay happy.

2) Chila deserves the satisfaction of being on top

3) It will be more fun for me to "come back" ...

see you all in the SOL waters ...;)

so - when does leg 4 start?? should be time to let every buddy know... ;)
moongirl - :-) hehehe

If I could race everyone's boats too I would! hehehe

Anyway... in the blog update of 0930utc this morning I post info from SSANZ that says the start of Leg 4 will "probably" be on Sunday.

Please now all check the SOL homepage and the Leg 4 info - the start of the real race will be NOT BEFORE 0100utc on Sunday 6 March (which is2pm nzdt). If there is a delay to the start and SOL systems can cope (ie its not within the 1hr pre-race towback time) then SOL will also delay the start!!

There weren't as many votes as I had hoped for but those that did vote did so pretty overwhelmingly for the results to stand as they are.

I thank all of you who voted and those who posted contributions as to why the votes are as they are.

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.
