    I strongly support Zorba's idea! I mentioned it in the chat a week or so ago, and have briefly discussed it with RC.
    But it was 'only' 20 years Ulysses was away. I think it could be a good idea to make it into a series of races, 3 or 4 maybe. And following the (first) map in Zorba's link.
    Read the book! Preferably on hexameter, even if it's hard in the beginning.
    Since we're not rowing, I think we should choose modern and quite fast boats, lest we should spend 20 years at a virtual sea.

    Hi guys!
    Seems really nice! I don't know if it's just me, or something else, but I've had (more than just) bad luck using the predictor. Unexpected bbqs quite often. It seems to be that my DCs had been set too early every time, i.e. I've trusted them too much. Once, certainly, twice, maybe (sloppy reading/setting DCs), but a lot of times? Some traces are lost, but some are still readable.
    Or do I sleep too much at night? Don't hesitate to tell me, if you think so!
    Will be great, once I've learnt how to!

    The Twister will definitely do in Multen. Only at places is the lake shallow; you can never get more than 375 m from nearest shore, but it's 24 m deep here and there! And since we're virtual, it doesn't matter, or is the 'mapper' considering depth?
    Don't hesitate if you've got other requirements or questions!

    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread Here is how to propose new races.
    Hi!
    I've used your pdf instruction file, but RC didn't get my .kmz to work. But if you do, this is my suggestion. A small boat (but maybe fast) would be the most realistic. We don't have any dinghies!
    Maybe I should change start and finish points, to avoid crossing lines?
    Please let me know if the file is ok, and if I should adjust anything, if you think it's good idea. But the challenge of sailing a small lake would be interesting, I think :)

    Yeppers! Or is it nope? No routers, digital nor human, except for my own brain (which is no good at routing...). Promise! As will be seen from my results ;-) FW to all, routerers and non-routerers!

    Not a great problem - I've never used any router for SOLing (even if the kind man Bimmer tried to teach me how to). I'll do my best, but will sleep all night (or try to - too often the case, when wakening up in the night). FW all non router sailors, and the rest of you who can't resist to use it! :-)

    Definitely not high on the (my) list! Even if it is a bit confusing, maybe mostly to those of us living quite close to a polar circle. There must be better things to spend time on, at least for now.
    The tech guys are doing a really great job! Thanks!

Sailonline's Tall Ships Asia 2020 - Race 1

Welcome to the first of two Tall Ships races in Asia from Ho Chi Minh City Bay, Vietnam, to Pulau Natuna Besar, Indonesia, some 400nm away. Our destination is in the Riau Island group which has been settled by fishermen for many centuries but now found to be a source of natural gas. At the time tall ships were sailing there, these islands were considered a safe refuge in the South China Seas.

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2020
Progressive climate change since this 34nm race designed by NZL_Scotsman was first run in 2014 may have eased our access to these fjords but watch out for growlers.  This is a TIMEDrace, and you can expect storms and calms, so choose your start time with care. Sailing in little J-80’s, 5:01:11 hours is the previous best time to beat. God hastighed!

Maryland to Alaska 2020
Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.
