FELICIDADES DeBilbaoPues!!! HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH rumskib!! BRAVO rafa!

In recent weeks the E Atlantic has been windy with tough sailing conditions. SOL arrived for the first running of its "Lighthouses" race and the wind dropped, the sun came out and conditions became more suited to cruising than racing. This did not, somehow, affect SOL's podium and the top finishers who just raced ahead, as if effortlessly - the mark of true skill! Very well done guys - the rest of the fleet who are still "sightseeing" can only wonder how you did it!

RACE INFO
Hi SOL sailors,
We have a nice race set up for you across the English Channel and The Celtic Sea. Although lighthouses seem of less importance nowadays with all the modern communication and positioning equipment on board. Lighthouses still provide safety and a low tech way of getting a good sense of your position.

In this race we pass some of them on the shores of France, England and Ireland. The race is approximately 965 nm long and is raced in class 40 type boats.

As a reference we have a link to a site displaying all of them in more detail.

For the South of England look here map images
And for the Irish lighthouses have a look here map images

Enjoy the race!

Alaska RTI Sprint 2017
Having only just recovered from following the gray whales 1000s of miles as they migrated North to the Bering Strait from their calving lagoons off Baja California, we change yachts and track back a little to the islands of the Aleutian Peninsula, for a quick zig-zaggy 53 mile sprint. Have fun; the weather is improving daily.
