If possible could the Lake Superior Lights race be moved to the following weekend slot to be more closely aligned with the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald on November 10, 1975.

The last running of this event took less than 2 days for the leader to complete so a Friday start gives an adequate time frame for the fleet to run the course by Sunday night.
None so blind
A2R - to weekend of 10th? Would an 1800utc start on the Friday be OK? or??

Friday the 9th, 1800 utc.

None so blind

I will update the current and October calendars tomorrow :-)

None so blind
A2R - I have been unwell for quite a while now and particularly over the past few days (spending most of Tuesday at hospital) so my apologies for not having changed the calendar as promptly as promised.

I have said the Lake Superior race will be moved in the calendar and so it will be. Probably later today but in any event as soon as I feel able to do it.

Hi sol friends
I noticed that the VendeeGlobe will start soon, 10th November.
I don't see anything like it in the SOL November calender.

Does SOL has a plan for a similar sailing race around the globe?
ard sur malheureusement SOL is not currently set up to run a non-stop race around the globe. We are hoping to be able to do this in the future.

In the past we have taken a global race, made it into legs and had them start quickly after each other but many people were unhappy with this arrangement. For now, then, SOL will not be doing non-stop global races.

Well i think the situation has changed : because now in the Vendée Globe you've got many ice gates. So the gap should be less between a race with legs, and the real race.

Perhaps You could make a "round the world" with leg 1 Olonne - Gough Island Leg 2 Gough - Australian ice gate Leg 3 Australian ice gate - Pacific ice gate Leg 4 Pacific ice gate - Cap Horn and Leg 5 Cap Horn - Olonne But i don't know if it's possible for SOL with 5 legs.

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
