Board » General Discussion » NAME THE OCEAN RACE 2011-2012

Page: 1 2 Next

It is without question that SOL will be running a round-the-world/global ocean race from the autumn of 2011 through to mid-year 2012.

BUT what to call this race?

As many understand, the major ocean races have entered into high-value $$$ contracts with commercial online games companies and have thus copyrighted the offical names.

I thought it might be fun to have a competition (no prize save glory!) to name SOL's next global race.

From now, 3 August 2011 until 31 August 2011 please submit your ideas. As they are proposed I will add them to this post for ease of reference.

THEN on 31 August, providing there aren't too many ideas, we can run a poll to choose the name we like best!

SO.. thinking caps on folks! :-)

"SOLer's Eclipse"
Because it overshadows all opposition!
:-)
Danny
RC: Forget the glory.

Make a real prize e.g. 12 months SYC membership.

Worth something and easy to give and administer.

Perhaps other prizes: Longest time aground but still finished in top 100 boats.

RTW SoL Name:

"THERE and BACK"

"Into the Atlantic and HOME", said by Sir Francis Chichester as he saied past Cape Horn and threw his southern ocean charts overboard.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
Great Idea!

Name: SOLer Wind 2011-12
(concept goes to Danny)

I also like PaulRs idea... Podium gets something tangible.
1st: 1yr of SOL membership
2nd: A piece of SOL apparel
3rd: A SOL Bear

Speaking of "SOL-aphernalia", it would great to have SOL logo decals. I would LOVE to have one (or more) on my car, backpack, dog :-)!!!

Sol2Sol - Here, to there, and back again

Sol the World - Chase the Horizon









Hi Folks!

I don't mind the name at all but because we have already done one circumcision this year can we spice this one up a little?

Along the lines of..

A Nations Cup - Best added times of say 3 national boats

A Team Challenge - let's go the whole boat babysit nine yards

Virtiual Prize for voted Best Named boat

A National Team Boat - Let's challenge ITA2011 with a USA2011, All Blacks2011, Aussie2011, Mapleleaf2011 etc etc

Let's make our race a tiny bit more interesting than the other unmentioned one!

Regards
George

Current Races:

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.
