FELICIDADES rafa!!! FELICIDADES GREATSKUA!! CONGRATULATIONS KarmaFish!

This has been the speediest running to date of SOL's favourite summer race with the previous record being beaten by 6 days 14 hours 30 min 12 sec! The Black Sea was kind to us from Hopa and despite a splitting of the fleet, favourable winds brought us quickly to the Bosphorous. This tricky gorge and the Dardanelles after the Sea of Marmara both bring a high rate of attrition, with the islands of the Mediterranean coast proving tricky to avoid. Nevertheless, SOL's podium this year is from a very tight group, several of whom came close to grabbing the podium. So congratulations to our winning three and commiserations to those very close behind!

BACKGROUND

In 2010 a group of Turkish SOLers, led by TUR_AC505, asked if SOL would sail a race around the Turkish coastline. It seemed a harmless enough request. The race that was produced became an epic adventure (1) the run from Hopi to Istanbul is pure Black Sea, with often fickle winds (2) from Istanbul through the Sea of Marmara and the crazy Dardanelles to the Aegean, and then (3) the coast many of us know best, the "Mediterranean" coast with its many tourist destinations. The race is now an annual event and really is a splendid challenge. In addition to recapturing history and offering great sight-seeing along the way, the trials we will all share in sailing this course will create friendships forever!
