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.

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.

Sail Newport Timed Race 2022

Welcome to Rhode Island in our first TIMEDrace this year. In 2020 we raced on Maxi Trimarans, now we will see how fast we can cover the 87nm route around Block Island, Fishers Island and back to the clubhouse on MC 38 monohulls. The previous record of 4 hours 5 minutes and 21 seconds belongs to Kipper1258. Try to judge your weather window well, but once you've finished (you must have finished), you can always try again (as often as you like) by clicking the link below.
