PARABÉNS NagaJolokia!!!

Race Leaderboard


The A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series was first designed in 2012, following the sudden death of Aaron Gage, by fellow Aussie SOLer Tyger. Our departure from Adelaide back then was set against a background of great sadness. Eight years on and SOLers continue to remember Aaron, creator of the Flash client that has served us so well, and we continue to re-run this epic series almost yearly, sharing fond memories and smiling at what a contribution Aaron made. He would be stoked!

For this last leg then, the fleet switched boats one more time, to what turned out to be a highly appropriate craft. Clipped on to our super-charged swing-keeled by-now-vintage Volvo 70s, once clear of Cape Leeuwin, we surfed downwind across the Australian Bight in near record time. With the leaders recording elapsed times of c 2 days 09:45 hours, the Gage Roads start-line to Brighton and Seacliff club-line of c 1350 miles was covered by them at an average speed of c 24.5 knots!

Amazingly enough, after all those hours, it was only seconds that separated the podium with Brazil's Naga (Torben - Snipe, Star and Southern Ocean champion - Grael) Jolokia pipping Cork's bonknhoot, who had led at the turn into the St Vincent Gulf, with Flensborg's rumskib, who had led midway across the Bight, coming in a close third. As always on SOL, an international, intercontinental podium. Three cheers, all three! Hip hip hip!!!

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3
Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!
