HERZLICHEN GLUCKWUNSCH rumskib!!! FELICIDADES rafa!! CONGRATULAZIONI ITA_4_Aaron!

Good onya Podiers! That was a fantastic finish after a superbly contested race with 20 boats home in the first half-hour. No quarter given and 100% effort all the way - just as Aaron would have wanted it. This has been an excellent start to what is going to be a truly memorable series of races, each of which, thanks to their designer, Tyger, will stand happily on their own two feet to make individual races for the future.

RACE INFO:

It's time to start our circumnavigation of Australia in memory of and tribute to SOLer AGage.

AGage gave us his race, Agage's Tour Downunder. Our gift to his memory is the 9-leg A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series. This race is Leg 1 of the series and is a 468nm race across the south east corner of mainland Australia. This area is the confluence of three weather patterns: an icy cold blast from the south west off Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, south east from the Tasman Sea and north west off the hot deserts of central Australia. Weather systems move west to east and Melbourne usually gets Adelaide's weather 2 days later. Be prepared to experience all weather systems during the race.

Starting offshore AGage's club in suburban Adelaide and finishing in Melbourne's Port Phillip just off Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, this race is designed to highlight the fact that AGage sailed an Aust Lightweight Sharpie, an evolution of the 12 sq mtr Sharpie last seen in the Olympic Games in 1956 in Melbourne, while SOL's finish is at RMYS - the yachting HQ for the 1956 games.

Lake Winnebago NNYC Race 2016
Welcome once again to the waters of the Neenah-Nodaway YC as the club embarks on its 152nd year of organised sailing sport. This time of year, of course, those waters tend to be in the solid phase – well that’s the top few inches anyway – and in the past SOL has conveniently deleted this condition from the virtual reality shared with our hosts. This year, however, we will ignore the real world no longer and will race in DN ice yachts, a class almost as venerable as the NNYC, having first seen the light of day as the result of a competition organised by the Detroit News in 1937. Because average speeds across the ice are likely to exceed 40kn, we shall lap the lake twice. Performance Loss will NOT apply to our iceboat this time!

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.
