Aegean Rally 2018
"The International Aegean Sailing Rally is a regatta with a long history, organized every year by the HORC (Hellenic Offshore Racing Club). It is the oldest and most splendid sailing event in Greece and is characterized as a marine Marathon", thus write its organisers, The Hellenic Offshore Racing Club, and in 2015 SOL followed the IRL yachts round for all four legs. Marathon, however, lies too far off the beaten track, so, we, at SOL, much encouraged by the great success of our ouzo-fuelled sprint of January this year, have decided to use another of the 2015 legs for sprinting. This one starts in Athens, then rounds Agios Dimitrios Kythnos for Piperi, to finish at the Temple of Poseidon on the tip of the Attica peninsula.

SWR 17/18 Leg 9 - Newport to Cardiff
We are back in the northern hemisphere!
After a good rest in Newport it's time to head for Europe, more specifically Cardiff in Wales
"A smooth trip" you might think, but The Atlantic Ocean can offer many surprises. One of them could be The Azores High, which in the late spring can drift north and block your route to Cardiff.
Consider yourself warned.
