Rainbow..A timed race would be fun. My favourite is the Boston, but the main things are....windy and a fast boat...VO 70 is the best....and it can be anywere....The Aluetians (?) could perhaps be a good place...Robert
Robert - did you not see that there IS a timed race already included?? At the moment it is Cowes-St Malo but it might be a longer one in that same area :-)
In FEB, I designed and submitted 3 races with not a single comment from the SOL community. Ah well... perhaps no interest. Will just keep on sailing quietly.
I have also designed a few races. Even have a race seriess now called 2011 SOJORA Series.
No races have been posted, but I am sure they will be.
Have patience... I am sure we are not the only ones designing and submitting races.
Its fun designing them anyway.
St. Lucie - Jupiter Ocean Racing Association (SJORA)
ShamPir - I am so sorry.. there was I thinking I was up to date with setting up SOLer races.. at least so they are happily sitting in the archive waiting for a slot time... and I read your post.

I have revisited the Race Proposals Forum and will be endeavouring to make up for not working on your races before now.

Oddly enough as my closest chum lives just S of Tampa I had been thinking a race on that side of FL would be fun and.. voila! you have made one for us!!

I will post in the Race Proposals Forum as soon as each race is set up so you can have a look at how it will appear when being raced.

@RC pls schedule my 'short adriatic race' asap as a Weekend race starting i.e. Friday 1. April if that slot is still free ;)
start time friday at 10UTC and finish Sunday at 17 UTC would be most 'realistic'.

mmartin - we "discussed" this in the Race Proposals forum and your race is scheduled for 1 April @ 1800utc. This time is good as 1 April is a Friday and it is morning in Australia/NZ, early morning in USA and evening in Europe/Africa.

So.. hopefully.. a bunch of people will sign up to race in our first Adriatic race on SOL!

Once again, as is our wont on Lake Ontario, a fleet of Beneteau First 36.7s is being made available to virtual racers.
