I believe it is already proposed in 2010 by Ivar Pakkar. Saw weekend was still open

Race is run every two year from lauwersoog to Larvik ( Stavern )

website : http://www.camr.nl

This year's run : 14 th july start 17:00

I don't know exactly what sailingships are used as i am not sailing myself.But hopefully somebody can identify a ships type from the website pictures . I expect it wil be something like a class 40

KMZ attached.

Maybe we can try to buddy up ?

Hi Tempest - thank you for this proposal. We have one race for the week leading up to July 14, proposed by Tarco but this will also be good.

I have sent a message to the organisers of CAMR via their online webpage contact form.
Tempest and everyone, I have now set this race up in SOL - the waypoints are all there and work as they are, even though they may not be giving precisely the rounding directions Tempest wanted. The SOL sailing line is generated by the server so to force a particular direction would need more waypoints which I think would be confusing. But it is up to you!

The race is now open for preview and will remain open for a couple of days so to look, just log in as the sol boat:

Username: sol
Password: sol

and then click here

The wx zone will update with the next update at 1630hrs this afternoon, so don't worry that the wind arrows are mismatching the course area.

Let me know what you think!

P.S. I picked an Elan 410 just at random.. any suggestions for a different boat from SOL's boathouse (based on the info provided by Tempest) would be appreciated!

RC , thanks however would like some changes.
you can leave the rounding sequence as is but please alter the positions of marks as follows to keep it close to sailing instructions (as TE entrance / exit is actually a gate).
TE 1 entrance new pos 053-40’ N 006-08'E
TE 1 exit new pos 053-46’N en 005-54'E

Finish to be moved aprox a mile north in between the two island
at 10-03E and 10-08E.
Finish length to be extended to aprox 2.7 miles.

Boattype to be advised
previous was Tempest as SOL , sorry
Tempest - any chance you can give me the coords in Decimal Degrees to save me having to run the conversion in Google Earth? :-D
TE 1 entrance 53.666 N , 06.133 E
TE 1 exit 53.766 N , 05.900 E

Islands aprox 10.05E and 10.13 E
Refresh... have adjusted all!

The SOL finish line is always, server-generated, perpendicular to the sailing line I am afraid.
I am sorry RC my misstake

TE 1 entrance to be moved to old position
053-38’ N 005-59’E
decimal 53.633N , 005.983 E

Finish center decimal 58.982 , 10.094E
perpendicular to course length 2.5 NM
Okie dokie!! Refresh again.... should look sweet now? :-)
