CIAO Aaron !

Nearly nine months ago we left from Adelaide with strong commitment towards two precise objectives :

---- Honor your name and memory bringing you with us around your little house ( Australia ;) ) by giving your name to our boat.

---- Place your name forever on TOP of the ranking of this nine legs long adventure as Winner of the series.

Nine months later we can say :

“Mission accomplished” !!!

and knowing well the amount of dedication and effort that we , together with the entire SOL community have put up for this achievement , everyone will understand our happiness and excitement.
What we really want now is to SHARE our joy and our tribute to you , young friend , with the entire SOL community , that bunch of passionate people who will never forget you .
As we have now entered Adelaide bay , we will sail the last few miles and hours of this long tribute changing the name of the boat to

ALL 4 Aaron

virtually taking on board the full community , for us ALL together to pay our tribute to your memory.

And finally , we will SHARE this achievement with your loved family . After the finish line we will deliver this boat to your mother , for you to play with us forever.

CIAO Aaron …….As I promised nearly a year ago …..you are still very much with us all ..and it goes on ….

Thank you Aaron we'll all catch you one day ... and play SOL again togheter.

And thank you to ALL this wonderful community !!!!
BRAVO ITA ...
I've never met Aaron, I went into SOL shortly after his death.
My first race was the AGAGE Memorial Race.
A big hug to his family and to all those who knew him.
Carlo Alberto
n Spain also left friends who will always remember, I did this race with your name with pride and excitement I decided from the irst day I started this race to catch me very seriously because you always were helping us.
never forget you and I carry you in my heart
Nice words Piero. You speak so well for all of us. I only knew Aaron briefly. ALL 4 Aaron is a great tribute because Aaron did so much for ALL of us who sail on SOL.
“We may have arrived on different ships, but we are all in the same boat now!” Martin Luther King Jr.
It is very exciting what they have done, change the name of your boat by the all because really all our efforts and our memories have been in memory of Aaron. As he has always said Piero you sail with us...
I am relatively new in this fantastic community (SOL) of which I only later got to know how much Aaron had given to.

I've never met Aaron and I learned about his passing. In time I began to understand and am still learning more about the legacy he left behind. This has generated in me a tremendous respect and a feeling of loss for not having known him.

To his family I would like to present these thoughts as a small token of what Aaron has come to mean to me.
To those that got to know him, thanks for showing me Aaron's contribution.

Everything gets done by not doing anything!
This has been a wonderful and, at times, emotional experience for me. Aaron and I exchanged a few emails as I was learning SOL, and I still go back occasionally and read his blog posts. I really miss his camaraderie here. I know we are all appreciative of his tireless efforts and contributions to SOL.

Fair winds my friend.
I didn't met him, I started in SOL after he left us, but running this series of races it was as if I had known him.
Thanks ITA_4_him, thanks all for him!
I'm sure that all of us have taken part in these races differently from the other ones, waiting with excitement every new leg and giving the most of every minute, giving the technique, the strategies. using the mouse and the keyboard, but especially, I feel we’ve played with the heart.
We brought his memory all around Australia and now I like to believe that in everywhere around Australia hovers his soul.
I wonder to myself if he raced with us, who knows on which boat he was, or which team he was cheering for, who knows what would have been his choices in these races, and who knows how long the Australian’s winds will keep his name and his memory.
The answer, as Bob Dylan says, …..is blowing in the wind!
I will always remember this race for Aaron around his land;
I will always remember Aaron´s contribution to this community;
And I will always remember the sentiment of the whole SOL community for him.
Aaron will always be part of us.

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020


The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
