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.

SWR 17/18 Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague
Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018
Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?
