Unraced but Proposed Races

Hi RC.... Plenty of "white" in May. Looks like a good opportunity to run some of the pending races already set up as listed in your spreadsheet.

If the server can handle it, I would suggest running at least 2-3 of the shorter(3-5day)events. Perhaps Lindesfarne, NE Archipelago, Hebrides Slalom, etc. Would also suggest reopening the discussion of how long to keep races open if this is a limiting factor for running more races and cleaning up the list a bit.

Should be a fun month!!

Hi ShamPir - thanks for checking the calendar. As always I keep an eye on what is still pending... and trade off "busyness" with what else is running.

The Lindisfarne will be run in June and I've just realised I haven't updated the thread running on that one.

76T has also suggested we look at the Shackleton Challenge for a gap-filler but I believe he is away at the moment.

The NE Archipelago I thought you were keeping for rough weather... if not then it is definitely long overdue for running!

The New Hebrides Slalom (not British Isles but Asia/Pacific) is another good one.. I had been waiting for SWR to get past Cape Horn so that we were out of the area.

Thank you!
Great ideas!
I will renew my focus to watch the NE US coast for a good spring-time low to blow through and let you know. The others all sound fun as well.

Always good to have some 75-200nm sprints waiting in the can to fill the gaps.

Thanks and great job as always RC!!

Swiftsure Lighthouse Race, Rund Skagen,Fyn Cup prep-race, Hiroshima-Kure, Mini 800NM (2 parts), Manila Race, May TransAT....
Bohusracet :-) I will try to stay awake the entire race this time
captjack - Excellent suggestions thank you!

spackel - we last raced the Bohusracet course in September, so its a bit recent but... it will run again for sure!!

Hi RC -

Time to load SWR leg 7? Starts in 3 days...

BTW nice avatar pic!

hugs, Ricos

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.
