Oahu East Coast RTI Sprint
Come with us to the "Windward Side" of "The Gathering Place", O'ahu, thus named by ancient Polynesian seafarer Hawaiʻiloa in honour of his daughter, probably left behind on some distant western shore, there to find a short course of 23nm in length leaving a number of rocky volcanic crags and islands to port and starboard, and a fleet of well-preserved Frers 33 to race each other in.

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!
