Commentary
The Hawaiian ZigZag race is always fun, introducing SOL'ers to the challenging waters around the Hawaiian Islands. They have a magic about them that permeated every programme made about them. Those lucky enough to have visited them will say that however modern the lifestyle becomes, underpinning it all are the traditional ways, respecting both the volcanoes of the islands themselves and the waters around them. The narrow and rock-strewn channels between the islands are challenging, as the waters of the Pacific, whipped up by prevailing trade winds, can form vortices and currents to test the mettle of even the most courageous. Couple this environment with vog from Kīlauea, affecting mostly Kone island, and sailing here in reality can be very interesting.

Into the second half of 2017 and the third 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 as 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.

This was a good race and our podium and top finishers are to be congratulated for their success.
Congratulations!

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2018
Welcome to Stockholm - are you ready to race to St Petersburg? Our 431nm course from Sweden to Russia includes a couple of slight detours past Saaremaa and Hoglandet but if you keep a good lookout and avoid stealthy submarines, you should soon be docking your J130s at the home of the world renowned Hermitage Museum!

Perth-Fremantle ISAF Sprint 2018
To celebrate the running of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth, Australia, SOL organized an overnight offshore race and a Sprint: 65nm in a J-80 sportsboat along the Perth/Freemantle shoreline. We have raced the course several times since then. This year, to hurry things up, we’re going to do it in an Open 60. Proper sprinting!

SWR 17/18 Leg 6 - Hong Kong to Auckland
While others have spent the two-week stay in Hong Kong sailing up and down the Zhujiang River and around Hong Kong Island, we have been able to completely relax and spend the days preparing for Leg 6 from Hong Kong to Auckland.
We will (almost) sail the exactly same way back to where we came from and that means another meeting with the Doldrums, which hopefully this time will be kinder to us. But if that does not happen... no one said this SWR 17/18 would be easy!
