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.

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.

Lanzarote to Grenada 2023
It should be a great time of year to sail the third Ocean race of this Year in our luxurious Xp55, from the Canaries, 2865nm down to the lush Caribbean island of Grenada, famed for its rum, spices and chocolate. Serious chocoholics can even sign up for a tour, which includes a scrumptious three-course lunch spotlighting chocolate in every course.
