During this Race, the Chineese chatroom will be flooded with Danish teenagechat. I suppose :-)

Dear all sailors in AFR 2011 !!

Thank you for your response on this Race.

I am very sorry, not having being as much online, as I had planned - very far from!!

Unfortunally, I was called away, Saturday 10 a.m., because my Father-in-law was very sick, and actually passed away at 3 am, Sunday morning.

Therefor, you missed a lot of information during the course - also, I was not able to wake up my students, because of very little online access.

I hope you will join again next year, where we will start later, friday (like 1800 UTC).

Again. Thank you all :-)

FRI Hawk54.
Hi Hawk so sorry to hear about your father-in-law.

The winds weren't conducive to an active race.. maybe we run it in the spring-time rather than end-summer next year?

The course is a really excellent one and, picking a time of year with strong(er) winds should make the race a lot more challenging.



Oct/Nov next year we can run AFR again.

Actually I was a little dissapointed about the course in the beginning, but during the Race, I found that it did have several fine points. Adding some wind, and it is an OK Race I think.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
Fair winds and good luck!!
