Board » General Discussion » NY-SF start time

Page: 1 2 3 4 Next

Hi all,
NY-SF is a record attempt, as such we should want the fastest possible conditions... I requested the start time change to Thursday, it is now clear that a later start is much faster.

Since postponing a race twice is unprecedented and there is another race on Friday, please post if you support another move!!!

*update for 2230 wx*
Well nevermind. A later start still is favored, but the huge differences in the first 72h have been erased, and what happens in the light air is ultimately luck.

_________________________

PLEASE NOTE THAT TO CHANGE THE START A SECOND TIME WILL REQUIRE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FOR IT BEFORE 1200utc TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, 6 MARCH.

Faster is better.
Nuff said....

;-)
<<DO NOT USE FOR NAVIGATION>>
Friday seems to be the fastest day of the race, go for it!
As a first-timer on SOL I am just looking forward to a challenging race with realistic weather and helming scenarios.
I will be happy to go along with the majority even if Thursday noon looked like the start of a hairy ride.
robert1 21:9 Well....This race will take 6-7 weeks ?....and the wx at start will mean nothing at the rounding of The Horn and the long sail up the west coast of SA.....I vote for start at schedulde time...

Actually the best start time to get us to the doldrums faster would be around 02:00~03:00 thur the 7th.
But I vote no more changes. Let's just race.

Newbie that I am, it is tempting to abstain.

That said, I favor picking the 'best' day in a 5-day forecast ... then switching to a 48hr forecast to prevent second guessing.

Of course, there is the alternative of adding a timed race adjunct to the one with all the boats. So, keep the registration open for a while. Late entries might not win the race, but they might set the record.
Start as anounced!

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2022
Are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St Petersburg?
The Gulf of Finland is still ice‑free, so board your J‑122s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine or ice‑breaker may need to be avoided.
