GRATULUJEME PetrM!!! CONGRATULATIONS hew565!! HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH stoertebaeker!

With news that the real fleet was sheltering in Dun Laoghaire due to forecast strong winds in the Irish Sea. SOLers set off on-course with thoughts of tall-ship-surfing in mind. A tricky course, thanks John_Hector!, saw an excellent downwind start but the tricky choice of waypoints meant that many beached overnight. Ships zigzagged their way up and down the SOL rankings until it became clear - those for whom tall-ship sailing seems second nature had found their way to the front. Great sailing guys! The last of the 2012 summer Tall Ships races has ended with a bang and folks wanting more!

RACE INFO
Hard on the heels of the Tall Ships Races 2012, a group of tall ships are going to take part in a time-on-course race, starting on Sunday 26 August, after which they will sail on to arrive in Liverpool for a four-day festival. The fleet will be berthed in Canning Dock and Albert Dock with the largest ships probably alongside Liverpool Cruise Terminal.

Sailonline will be sailing its own version of this time-on-course race - former Race Director of Sail Training International, SOLer John_Hector, has created a 148nm course for SOL based on the start, finish and some of the waypoints of the real race.

PEP Sprint 2017
Eddystone Lighthouse marks a nasty patch of rocks about 10 nm SSW of the approach to Plymouth. With the prevailing winds generally out of the SW in this part of the world, chances then are this race departing from inner Plymouth harbour, is going to be a beat out to the Light, requiring inter alia the avoidance of a very substantial breakwater, followed by a run to the finish out on open water. Perhaps 18 nm as the crows flies, and therefore, even as your FinnGulf 43 flies, a quickie.
