Here is the draft calendar for July 2012 - feel free to suggest additional races if you see gaps!

July 2012

See attached document for races run in July of previous years.

My suggestion for the NE & NW passage hasn't made it to the proposed race list. Do you need more detail on these races or is there some selection process for proposed races?
Hi Scotsman - Did you complete both kmz files? I only recall seeing some numerical waypoints that AGage put together in a kmz file.

Waypoints need to have names... they don't have to be placenames, but something appropriate to your race.

The race needs a name and, as you will see from the guidelines on proposing races (in teh Race Proposals Forum) you need to draft an invitation as well as a race description.

We need to know how long the race will be and what boat you wish to use and, ideally, a sense of how long it will take to complete.

Finally... have you checked that the route you have chosen is actually doable in SOL?

Sorry to have dropped the ball on this - as you can see from the Unraced races list, there are a bunch of long distance races that have been pending for a long time.

Recent improvements in how the server is being managed means we can push former usage limits a little :-)

ok, thanks. I know what I need to do now!
The same thing happened last year when the Race to Mackinac was in the Preliminary Calendar but then was dropped at some point as the Monthly Edition was published. So here we are again I will not assume that it will show up without this extra comment.
None so blind
Hi A2R - I am actually trying to get an official buddy-up for the race but, until I get a yes or a no, I don't want to put anything in the calendar ;-)

But... you weren't to know that so, thank you for the reminder!!
This race has run within SOL every year in sync with the actual event, even before I got here, except last year when this partnering obstacle seems to have obfuscated the scheduling issue. Are we not allowed to mirror this race, even with a different name, unless we receive permission from the sponsoring Yacht Clubs ?

Partnering should be a bonus not a sine qua na.

A2R - if the real race doesn't want us running it with the official name then we will run the course but call it something other /similar. I see that the Race to Mackinac now has some heavy duty sponsors and once the "branding" option has been taken up, I think SOL just needs to be careful.

We WILL be running the course but because of the approach for a buddy-up I don't wish to tread on toes at this point!

I love this race so there is no way we are not doing it this year!!

Dats a promise :-)
RC, thanks for the expanded explanation and reassurances. Lawyers have sharp elbows which is why it is best to let sleeping dogs lie.
None so blind
A2R - still no feedback from the real race organisers so it is now in our calendar as the Chicago-Mackinac 2012.

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Christmas to Christmas Island 2023
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2023 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! It also marks the conclusion of our prestigious Ocean Race Championship 2023. Please have fun! Fair winds!

Finland-Sweden Archipelago Raid 2023
In 2013, SOLer "JakeS" in cooperation with "Smo" created his own version of the extreme Archipelago Raid catamaran race. The real race through the beautiful Finnish and Swedish archipelago is considered a "nightmare and a great adventure", so in our sixth run of this challenge at 415 nautical miles, our determination and skills will be tested again! This year, we changed the Italia14.98 to a Cape 31. Take care when cornering and brake early enough.

Barrow to San Francisco 2023
Hoist the sails and prepare for the nautical journey that is bound to make the history books! Starting in icy Barrow, Alaska, and finishing in sunny San Francisco, this over 3000-nautical-mile race is not to be missed! Our daring SOLers will command none other than the legendary Archer 78, a record-breaking vessel from 1978! Brace for high-seas drama and history-making moments on the way from the Arctic to the Golden Gate!
