During this Race, the Chineese chatroom will be flooded with Danish teenagechat. I suppose :-)

Dear all sailors in AFR 2011 !!

Thank you for your response on this Race.

I am very sorry, not having being as much online, as I had planned - very far from!!

Unfortunally, I was called away, Saturday 10 a.m., because my Father-in-law was very sick, and actually passed away at 3 am, Sunday morning.

Therefor, you missed a lot of information during the course - also, I was not able to wake up my students, because of very little online access.

I hope you will join again next year, where we will start later, friday (like 1800 UTC).

Again. Thank you all :-)

FRI Hawk54.
Hi Hawk so sorry to hear about your father-in-law.

The winds weren't conducive to an active race.. maybe we run it in the spring-time rather than end-summer next year?

The course is a really excellent one and, picking a time of year with strong(er) winds should make the race a lot more challenging.



Oct/Nov next year we can run AFR again.

Actually I was a little dissapointed about the course in the beginning, but during the Race, I found that it did have several fine points. Adding some wind, and it is an OK Race I think.

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
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 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
