    Board » Race proposals
    Both the Mini Transat and the TJV are coming up in the fall. We need to do at least one if not both.

    In the meantime!

    Something in the the Pacific?

    A bit like the 50/50 around Cape Horn... Race to start on the North American W coast, finish on the International Date Line (or SOL's "pure" 180E/W version).

    I propose Vancouver CAN to a finish at same latitude 3000nm long, to be named "There'll be sun"

    If we like it next we can go the other way - "SOL was such an easy game to play"

    TP52s

    Wow - two "real" entries are in (sorry kroppyer, I missed the notification on yours) and some excellent boat recognizing!

    By my somewhat arbitrary answer key (which I edited, as some of their answers were better than mine):

    kroppyer - 51 points! Correctly ID'd almost all of the boats we sail and picked up many of the bonus points for names. Caught a couple of mistakes in the drawing as well :-) I think they're layer issues in the vector original, but 4D has some mast-step/forward beam issues, and 6I should definitely have 3 small oval windows below the sheer.

    Tyger - 81 points!!! That's honestly basically a perfect score. The missing points are mainly in some of the "Easter Egg" boat of various SOLers and a few names of represented boats that nobody but the original race organisers could possibly know.

    I'm impressed!

    Wow - I believe we have a new leader! When you're ready, send me your answers and I'll total the score. Maybe give the rest of these laggards something to shoot for.

    Tyger is correct - Jubilant was added after most of the work on the poster was finished, though I do have a tile for her. There are a few more recent boats missing, and a couple of extras that we don't race (yet)/aren't soler's boats (4G, for example).

    (Square Rigger racing) Four more for SOL Collected Works :

    In Estonia's a guy at the bar who
    Made for the fleet some boats that are "new".
    Poor sailors been SOL'd.
    Boat's 200 years old!
    Like crew's age when they get to Pärnu.

    We sail a few boats that are bigger.
    Though none that upwind need such vigor.
    It can't be that hard?
    Brace up that yard!
    Show who's boss of this ^$%# square-rigger.

    O'er the waves sounds a half-muttered chorus:
    "This tacking is starting to bore us..."
    To windward they're clawing,
    the tracks look like drawing
    the teeth of a Tryannosaurus!

    To starboard and port the ships darted.
    These ships are not for the fainthearted.
    It's a challenging rig!
    See them zag and then zig!
    Hoping not to end up where they started...

    A ton of data is going up at http://noticeboard.americascup.com/

    They sail in such a limited range of conditions though...

    *All three boats are "Class A Tallships".

    The original class A/B/C polars do not in any way resemble the performance of the actual boats (or any boats). If we want to sail them because the funky shape is fun, or for nostalgic reasons I say go for it in non-buddied races, but it feels like a disservice to SOL and STI to continue using them when sailing actual events, with tracking, etc.

    We describe ourselves as having "super realistic boat performance".

    11 months later and K3 still sets the bar at 1 point out of a possible 111+...

    Identify the boat/fleet type, the particular irl boat represented (if any), and the SOLer associated (if any).
