I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
The NoR doesnt mention marks just after the start but there are several on the playing scren. What is the go with these?
Don't worry, these are marks for the practice races held on the last few evenings. They will disappear on recall, one hour from the race start.
Super fast answer, thanks!
Also keep in mind that it is the official NOR I have posted here. You can find the Sol NOR on the right hand in the race description.

My temptation is hugging the East coast of Africa including going inside Madagascar all the way up to the first mark.
In SOL we don't need to watch out for the pirates. I suppose the Volvo boats will go East of Madagascar.

Will be an interesting leg.
The light winds at the last days of the leg might be nerve-wracking for the leaders.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024

Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
