The SWR will be over in the first couple of weeks in April. The weekend of the 14th might be a big enough window for leg 1 of the Shackleton race.

LA-Tahiti starts on the 20th with some fast boats entered. Can we stomach crossing the Pacific the other way so soon after doing it W-E :-) ?

Actually the 20th might be a better start date for Shackleton as well.

Both would probably involve running 3 races during the Sea2Sea, but at only 20nm I'm not sure that that's an issue.
76T why do you say

The SWR will be over in the first couple of weeks in April.

As far as I can see from the official race website the last race won't complete until July!!!


I think we will run the Tahiti TransPac later in the year (we aren't buddied) and... it is the Vuelta that is 20nm not the Sea2Sea which is 295nm I've corrected the calendar)!

But we definitely need to get a Shackleton on the move .. preferably before we head into Tall Ships season!

Leg 5 :-P

Leaders should be done in 2weeks, with a longer gap this time until the next leg starts.

(sol-boat posting in the forums is stranger than ever... I've been logged in as 76T, posted and raced/reload clients since last time I used sol to check a race... nothing changed since my previous post or the one on Lolla's thread, and I show logged in as 76 grrr)
Fab!! If you think we have time to get Shackleton under way then lets go for it :-) I am deliberately keeping the calendars relatively spare of detail to allow flexibility!

Re swapping log-ins, I think it just takes a moment or two for the server to effect a change if you use the same browser. I tend to use different browsers, IE for sol, Chrome for 'Chaser.

AWKR 2024

The Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta celebrates and promotes women's sailing in Australia. Comprising a week of intense racing on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, the event has grown to become Australia’s premier women’s regatta and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and over the past several years, Sailonline has been delighted to have been invited to offer all-comers (women and men) a virtual opportunity to race the Bay during AWKR week. This year, it’s an imaginary 80-miler in Sun Fast 3300s, which should prove a proper online challenge.

Nuuk RTI Sprint 2024

Welcome to Nuuk, capital of Greenland. It holds the title of warmest city in Greenland and is located at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the east shore of the Labrador Sea. The fjord is clear of ice, daylight plentiful, perhaps a tiny chill in air. This is the final sprint of Q2 and we have a new course for you. It is time to race in Greenland.
