I guess I missed the time window for the tag. Still, let it be on record that I am racing SOTP :-)
LaoziSailor

Everything gets done by not doing anything!
I will be sailing SOTP too here, as I use to do in all races, started to use routing program in SWR but get bored of it quickly, we will sail with this race spirit from start to finish, is gonna be interesting and funny
And I also want to say a big THANKS to our beloved SOL comunity, for bringing us this amazing race, to be almost a year sailing around the world is gonna be demanding and super funny, when we finish, we will miss it for a long time
SOTP forever!
It is with regret that I must ask you to delete Bimmer_SOTP from the SOTP list:-(
I thought it would be much more relaxed to sail SOTP, but my nerves and stomach can't handle it.
I simply can't SOL without my router.....
Sorry!
I declare I will sail SOTP/NOA (No Outside Assistance).

Good wind navigation to all.
I will be sailing SOTP and solo with no outside assistance!
Little late on the start, but for the record I undertake to sail SOTP for this race and I declare this just as I slip the mooring lines.

A little late now, but I am sailing SOPT from the start, and will continue to do so.

Great race this one

SOTP... What are you allowed to use? I've been using just the weather as supplied by SOL since the start (a day and a half late starting as I didn't know about the event until after it started!), no outside information at all. However, even using the supplied gribs seems to me to be more info than the real GGR boats are getting.

Seems to me that to be more accurately replicating the real event you should only be using gribs with current conditions, not something with 7 days predictions? What do others think?

Oahu East Coast RTI Sprint
Come with us to the "Windward Side" of "The Gathering Place", O'ahu, thus named by ancient Polynesian seafarer Hawaiʻiloa in honour of his daughter, probably left behind on some distant western shore, there to find a short course of 23nm in length leaving a number of rocky volcanic crags and islands to port and starboard, and a fleet of well-preserved Frers 33 to race each other in.

Van Isle 360 2020
Welcome back to Vancouver and the 525nm delightful course designed by SOLer fastpassage39. This is a tricky race, combining tight channels and open water which our seldom sailed and elegant Dufour 40 will love.

A3 2020- Leg 3 - Hobart to Sydney
SOL's continuing tribute to AGage is the A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series. This race is Leg 3 of a 9-race series. Not a race goes by without the name of AGage appearing somewhere in race chat. We continue our running of this tribute circumnavigation of Australia in his memory. Leg 3 is a 630nm race from Hobart to Sydney.

Lisbon to Cape Town 2020
Our third OCC race in Q1 is also our first race of a special 4-race RTW series. Given that this leg 1 is taking us on a more than 5000nm passage from Lisbon to Cape Town, the betting has to be that the subsequent legs will be into the wind. Hopefully not in replicas of Ellen McArthurs Orange catamaran then!
