Challenge of many races would be nice too. VO70 would be my boat choice.
Well lets start with the Qingdao-Rio and see how we go.


if you like it, I prepared the image for the race.
SCARA - lovely picture... is it copyright free? Unfortunately, Sailonline cannot use any image in its promotion of any race if it does not have ownership of a picture/image or permission from the copyright holder to use a picture/image. We need to be very careful :-)
RC, the photo was downloaded from this site
I do not know if it is protected by Copyright (probably), but our race is not for profit, perhaps you can use the picture.
I try to search on the web and see if I can find who is the photographer ...

As it would be good to have this race up and running shortly, I have now set it up and would appreciate everyone having a good look at it. The course is unamended from when it was run in SOL originally so, hopefully, it will pass muster now!

Let me know what you think.

I took a quick peek at this race & even though it is a large area the Wx file (625 Kbytes)loaded over my slow dial-up ISP in short order. This is a big thumbs up, in fact if it were to be expanded one notch for extra measure I would not be adverse to a file size of 1.5 Mbytes or less as a manageable range for such a long race
None so blind
I am glad to hear the map loads quickly for everyone. I had noticed that in some of the larger races recently, the weather resolution was as tight as it is in some offshore races... not helpful for those with slow dialup.

This race, therefore, has been set up with a larger weather grid (as big ocean races have been in the past) so hopefully it is more accessible now.

I am thinking of adding a "health warning" about ranking as we near Cape Horn ... anyone any suggestions about that?
We should consider adding two marks to include what happened on the real race, the NZ gate (37S178E, pass to port) and east pacific gate (45S112W, pass to SB). I think both marks can be added without affecting the routing, in fact they probably help avoid the hassle with the DTF when near the south pole.

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024

Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
