CONGRATULATIONS RideTheWind99!!! FELICIDADES rafa!! ČESTITAMO africa!

Yet again this course has proved to be extremely challenging and the three SOLers, all SYC Members, who have grabbed the podium are experienced and canny sailors in the best tradition and it is great to see the three of them win through. Not that they had it all their own way, despite many bbqs along the course, within 30 minutes of RideTheWind crossing the line, 35 other boats had also done so! Excellent SOling guys!

RACE INFO:


(pic of Chiloe Regatta)

Welcome to Chiloé, Chile!

Chiloé means “Place of Seagulls” and is the second largest island of America, after Tierra del Fuego. The Chiloé Archipielago is made up of the "Isla Grande de Chiloé", The Big Chiloé Island, and more than 40 little islands, with a total surface of 9,000 square kilometers.

Two very different landscapes can be found in Chiloé. In the west the coastline is rough and the big waves and strong winds from the Pacific punish the land. In the east, by contrast, the coast is much more attractive, with a lot of fjords and a peaceful interior sea. However, the climate in Chiloé is strange and it is not unusual to have fours seasons in one day. Many channels can be found surrounding the myriad of little islands and the currents can be ferocious. A characteristic of Chiloé is the great tide differences, of several meters between the low and the high tide.

The people of Chiloe are very friendly and always give a warm welcome to visitors. Good racing SOLers!
