    Hi RC,
    I wish you all the best in dealing with this great loss. My wife and I know how your mindset is today, we had a couple of years ago the same issue with our dog, which is 4 months ago replaced by another great puppy ;)
    RIP mr K and lovely thoughts for you RC!

    All this is nothing new... Tn fact it is the main reason I quitted already months ago...
    Where is the spirit of Corinthian sailing SOL has in the early days?

    The procedure for the race closing was clearly mentioned:

    To maintain as great a continuity as possible, while being fair to everyone, each leg after Leg 1 will open for registration as soon as practicable after the previous leg winner's arrival and the new race will commence as close to 48hrs after that finishing time as is possible. For example, if the winner of Leg 2 arrives at the Cape of Good Hope finish at 0300utc then Leg 3 will open for registration as soon as possible (subject to SOLgods and goddesses bunk time!) and Leg 3 will begin racing at or very close to 0300utc +48hrs later.

    The registration for each leg will close 24hrs after the leg starts.

    Each leg will, subject to server loads, remain open for a few days after the winner arrives to permit as many to complete as possible. For those SYC Members who find legs closing before they finish, do not be too distressed as your position on the Leaderboard at race close will count as your ranking in that leg.

    I was one of the first members of SOL who "invented" co-skippering, together with Bgosh, Moongirl and Rico. We competed almost in every race, and it is impossible to be at the helm yourselve all the time. So, for me, there is nothing news under the sun.IRL, you are also acting as a team isn't it, so what's the difference. Keep up the good sailing Itallian friends!

    I'm from Belgium, living near Antwerp. 50 years old, married, 3 children.
    When I was 7 years, I was invited by a family-friend to make my first blue-water trip on his Swan40. Sailed for 10 years with that boat, mostly in the North-European waters. Later on I jumped into ocean racing and sailed twice around the world. Was involved in the Belgian Whitbread around the world race (Rucanor) and was owner of a VO60 (Tokio) until 1999.
    Last year I participated in the ARC with a Beneteau 50.

    I agree with Schakel. I am one of those who hasn't sailed during the last months because of:
    1. I disagree to sail in the same competition as routers
    2. the amount of races to sail is to much to keep you up in the ranking

    Guys, I did the Round Britain and Ireland Race twice double-handed. One of the rules is that you have to leave ALL islands at starboard side... So, what's the issue???? Going in BETWEEN islands is against the spirit of the official race.

    I'm only interested in a ranking Corinthian sailors versus sailors using software. As it is now, non-software users will never ever have a chance to win a race!
    In the start-up of SOL everybody had equal possibilities to win, but that (good) times are far away... main reason for me to not take part on races the last months, winners are known already before a race starts...

    It was one of the first things I mentioned when SOL changed from the old client to the new one...

Isla del Sol RTI 2021
Scanning the globe for special sprint locations, our intrepid course designer Renegade came across Isla del Sol. Interesting! But where is it? Turns out SOL's island is in the middle of the world's highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, so obviously we just had to race there. You'd think at 3812m above sea level, the place would be windy, but not so, and not particularly cold either, so enjoy this shortish 26nm RTI in "how-did-we-get-them-here?" Fox 9.50s.
