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 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.
