Current Races:

Beru to Bora Bora
Most of us know very little about the islands of the Pacific and even less about how they came to be populated. The original migrations started from Indonesia and reached as far as Hawaii and beyond, so this race of 2219nm from Beru Island in Kiribati to Bora Bora in Tahiti, designed by SOLer Dingo represents a segment of a much larger migratory route. We will be sailing Seacart 30s - the modern equivalent of the original outriggers.

Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2015
When the winter weather turns cool in southern Australia sailors head into the warmer tropics. Every year in August sailors from all over the world make their way to The Great Barrier Reef for the big winter regattas at Hamilton Island, Airlie Beach and Magnetic Island. What better way to get there than to race to the reef. So join SOL in the 2015 Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race in VO60s. It might be winter downunder but all you will need is shorts and t-shirts.
