CONGRATULATIONS sadlersailing!!! CONGRATULATIONS Rhino!! CONGRATULATIONS Gin_Lynn!

First off, what a fabulous finish for a new-to-first-place-in-an-ocean-race SOLer!! Second, just amazing to see that it has taken 9hrs for the first 20 finishers to reach the line - the rest of us are out on the water still - some for a long while yet!

From the start, we knew we were in for an interesting trip - beating into wind was a skill we would hone! From Maui there was a small split in the fleet with some immediately heading N and a few heading S but within a couple of days it was clear that a Pacific High from the NW was not going to be a factor and S was where the sport would be. A massive swoop S by many and then the decision was all about when to curve N again for the finish. It was here that the finish seems to have been decided and our podium began to take shape.

A great ocean race, in classic SOL tradition, won by three of the best! Well done guys!

San Francisco to New York Ocean Race 2016
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Three years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from New York to San Francisco in 40 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Maxi 100. Time to return. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
