Very preliminary handicaps for leg 3:

AS	0.861
B	0.791
C	0.808

Note that the format has been changed (corrected?) to IRL time-on-time convention, so you now multiply your time by your TCF to get corrected.

I don't think Stavanger was expecting THIS many ......

Leg 4 needs a better and more realistic starting position. Please move it up north a bit into the fjord at least.
The server might get overloaded by all the tacking commands being sent.

Cheers, Pierre

Edit: RC promised a change once the official (real) starting point is known

Halmstad Finish.
IMHO, I think this is too far out to sea.
It is 15nm offshore and 30nm from Halmstad.

At this distance, nobody on the sea shore can see the hulls, possibly only the topsails and royals on the takkest square riggers.

Unless this is the IRL actual finish, then this finish for SoL is to far away,

In Sol all yachts can and do stop instantly on the finish line, with no real risk of running ashore.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
The tracker (now) has them finishing 10nm NE of Skagen. None of that tricky upwind business. The racing is a bit of a distraction from the port arrivals and shore party maybe :)
Ahhhhhh!! I see 76T. I now can understand how all of them are now making "circles in the Oceans".

My comment was really abut the draft race vs the race we have now.
Finishing 30nm from the port is a long way out, IMHO. Could even be a full days sail in these conditions.

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2020
Progressive climate change since this 34nm race designed by NZL_Scotsman was first run in 2014 may have eased our access to these fjords but watch out for growlers.  This is a TIMEDrace, and you can expect storms and calms, so choose your start time with care. Sailing in little J-80’s, 5:01:11 hours is the previous best time to beat. God hastighed!

Maryland to Alaska 2020
Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.

Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2020

When the winter weather turns cool in southern Australia sailors head up to the warmer tropics. Every year in August sailors from all over the world make their way to The Great Barrier Reef for the big winter regattas at Hamilton Island, Airlie Beach and Magnetic Island. What better way to get there than to race to the reef. This year Sailonline is joining with the racers from RQYS to race the 343 nautical miles from Brisbane to Keppel Island in our TP52s. It might be winter downunder but all you will need is shorts and t-shirts.
