    27 bbqs.... wow. I know some were intentional to mitigate the tacking perf loss. but still not to bad considering the length of course of tight quarters and the speed of the boats...

    my biggest problem with the long cross the ocean type races is i over think the weather and then forget about the race and end up bobbing the ocean going 1-2 knots since I forgot to check in on it...

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot....!!!!!

    hats off to Jake and Smo for taking the time to build the race. it will probably take as long to sail it as it did to build it.

    methinks there will be a lot of bbq action in this race...

    can't wait until registration opens just to see how many rocks there really are...

    you are not joking about the race stretching out. still a fun little race. no bbq's on my end, but I think my helmsman fell asleep a few times and drifted off course to the unfavored side while heading south on the east side of the island...

    SP,

    I had thought about breaking it in 3 ie a northern (maines to AC), central(AC to HH) and southern(HH to DT)... which could make for some nice weekend racing...

    had not though about breaking it up even more into some longer "day" races

    I am not a huge fan of the wide open ocean races. I do enjoy "mark roundings" and island dodging... which does require more "seat time"

    I had not though about making it a "series" either...

    aaron,

    I can definitely open up the legs and remove some of the waypoints to allow boats to head out to see for higher winds...easy enough to do. I was just following the directions in the race setup guide that was asking for more waypoint for ranking purposes...

    I did zoom in on the SOL areas where I wanted the waypoints set up to ensure that there were open passages for the cut through.

    We have had plenty of races where there was not much ability for fleet to diverge on a week long race, Hellyaa comes to mind near the finish, the Scandinavian tours long races with right confine which mean lots of computer time.

    the Rum run had lots of mark rounding in a long race in tight quarters......

    race around turkey....

    St Lawrence islands...


    looking at GE I could pull out Manticus Island. for 250nm first leg, I could remove block Island and Marthas Vineyard for a 200 nm second leg form Boston to NYC. remove Altanic city for a 230nm from NYC to mouth of the Chesapeake, remove Hatteras and cape lookout for a 270nm to bluff island. remove charleston and hilton head for a 280nm leg to St Augustine. remove the Cape Canaveral for a 280nm to Key Largo, and then have a shot from largo to the tortugas for the finish removing Marathon, Key West, Marquesas and long key...

    it can go anywhere it will fit..no special dates needed. I'm working on setting up a Caribbean tour based on Jimmy Buffett Songs. Ie any place he's mentioned in the Caribbean ...in one of his songs would be a way point... but its an awful lot of songs to go through...

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
