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.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
