  • Regarding "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP)
    Board » General Discussion
    My HATS OFF to the organizers of Golden Globe Race, starting 1 July 2018 - and to test this "no-grib-routers please"-RULE! It is GREAT!
    Since I am an bit oldfashioned, as my kids say.., I always sail only "visually", without grib-router software. It is ok. Still, in a normal race, one needs to be aware, that one sailes against machines (sol:ers tuning their grib-routers). To see how good one can get, against machines. And still be ok with that.

    (Unfortunately I might miss first leg of this race, because I will be out sailing for real.)
  • Notice time for ocean type races
    Board » General Discussion
    Hi,
    I am still AMAZED by the short notice time used for especially ocean type races. For how many days was the notice for ongoing Leg 3 Australia New Zealand race out? We now see many late starters, in this race Leg, and less than usual # of participants. What is the problem of announcing a long race e.g. 1 month ahead??? It seems that only relevant and only wanted customers are the real addicts and login-every-day sailonline users.
    Cheers,
    Mange

    Hi!
    I think it is unfortunate the the "notice of race" period is so short, for a big race like Global Challenge. I am not too much of an sailonline addict, I did not race much during last year. But during past months I did check website now and then if an ocean race was coming up. Then I was for travel for a week, busy with other things. Just to find later I was 4 days late for this start! What happened? (Look now at for exampel rumskib also.) Why not notice this type of race for a month at least? A large fleet I guess all want, no? Best regards! Mange

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
