    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread MARCH 2014.
    I appreciate that the Huelva course in not chosen for a championship race yet another time.

    One question regarding March 2nd. Is the announced race start an artifact from the February schedule, or does the second leg of the Steinlager2 RTW race start already on Sunday?

    Yet another question. Has there been a lot of negative feedback regarding different start times for the two sprint races? I personally don't care that much, I am just curious.

    I recommend the book "Championship Tactics - How anyone can sail faster, smarter, and win races" written by Gary Jobson and Tom Whidden with Adam Loory-
    ISBN 0-321-04278-7
    St Martin's Press, New York, 1990

    It is written in a narrative style that I found easy to follow (much easier than Bethwaite's book).
    It also has a pew pages on polars, VMG, and VMC that should get anyone started who is unfamiliar with those concepts.

Van Isle 360 2020
Welcome back to Vancouver and the 525nm delightful course designed by SOLer fastpassage39. This is a tricky race, combining tight channels and open water which our seldom sailed and elegant Dufour 40 will love.

A3 2020- Leg 3 - Hobart to Sydney
SOL's continuing tribute to AGage is the A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series. This race is Leg 3 of a 9-race series. Not a race goes by without the name of AGage appearing somewhere in race chat. We continue our running of this tribute circumnavigation of Australia in his memory. Leg 3 is a 630nm race from Hobart to Sydney.

Lisbon to Cape Town 2020
Our third OCC race in Q1 is also our first race of a special 4-race RTW series. Given that this leg 1 is taking us on a more than 5000nm passage from Lisbon to Cape Town, the betting has to be that the subsequent legs will be into the wind. Hopefully not in replicas of Ellen McArthurs Orange catamaran then!
