Nice ideas captjack - the Auckland Regional is being run this year as the B&G Simrad Series, the Vineyard is already in the calendar, and we will be Sailing Around Turkey which is not quite Bosphore-Bretagne but at least part of it!! We've also spent quite a bit of time round Europe and the British Isles recently so its time to give other areas an airing as well!!

I just finished reading the book: Endurance, by Alfred Lansing. Fascinating!

A race, following its route from South Georgia - Antarctica - Elephant Island - South Georgia is a possibility, but some 3700 NM!!

Here you can see it on GE - would you like me to work on it?

Hi Hawk - if you look here you will see that someone has already thought of that!! Maybe you can bring that thread by to life by reposting your comment there?

There are a lot of races that have yet to be run in SOL (and if you look at captjack's selection above of his favourites, there are a lot of pre-run ones that we like to run again!) so it wouldn't be something we could necessarily do immediately.

Amazing done by 76T !! I think we have almost the samt thoughts here :-)

I just made this suggestion, because you wrote, that the SEP-calendar was almos empty. didnt consider re-runs, but for me it is OK, Im still new here.
Hope no one has anything planned for Sept 5th on the calendar!!!
(Someone has stolen it) :-)))

If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
I am happy to announce the restoration of 5 September - it had decided to take a day off until it was reminded that its presence in the race calendar is essential :-D

RC, It would be interesting to see a list of the races we have on the list that are new and waiting?. There are at LEAST 2-3 more from Jepsom, one on the coast of Maine and a several others I can't think of. With the Atlantic hotting up, I may resurrect the "Storm Series" idea as well.

Current Races:

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!

Finland-Sweden Archipelago Raid 2023
In 2013, SOLer "JakeS" in cooperation with "Smo" created his own version of the extreme Archipelago Raid catamaran race. The real race through the beautiful Finnish and Swedish archipelago is considered a "nightmare and a great adventure", so in our sixth run of this challenge at 415 nautical miles, our determination and skills will be tested again! This year, we changed the Italia14.98 to a Cape 31. Take care when cornering and brake early enough.

Barrow to San Francisco 2023
Hoist the sails and prepare for the nautical journey that is bound to make the history books! Starting in icy Barrow, Alaska, and finishing in sunny San Francisco, this over 3000-nautical-mile race is not to be missed! Our daring SOLers will command none other than the legendary Archer 78, a record-breaking vessel from 1978! Brace for high-seas drama and history-making moments on the way from the Arctic to the Golden Gate!
