9 August 2017



Into the second half of 2017 and the second of our three-boat-choice championship. Proving immensely popular, despite the occasional hiccup when folks disqualify themselves when not reading the rules thoroughly enough, the events themselves, comparing directly the performance(s) of the three 40ft boat choices, has made for great in-race chat as well some excellent Race Reports submitted for the results blogs. Long may this new-style championship continue – especially in conjunction with buddied events, that really brought a tremendous interactivity to the race screen.

Thanks must go to SOLer Tyger for organising another successful buddy-up with Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron -racing from Brisbane to Keppel is always fun… or, at least, it is if you can manage to find the tide/current or (in SOL) the wind to see you happily reaching past the channel markers out to the open ocean. As could be seen from the tracked boats on-screen (a marathon task by Tech Team stoertebaeker to bring more than 30 tracked boats to our attention!) not everyone had the “legs” to get through the channel successfully at first attempt. Once down-course, there still seemed to be several options in play and, for once, the mighty Ker didn’t have things all its own way – read the race reports for more insights.

As always, our podium three are to be congratulated on their success – this was a closely fought affair with boats flying the flags of 28 nations taking part, so to gain the podium by relatively decent margins (although #4 was hot on your transoms) was very well done indeed! Congratulations!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
