SOL race?

Pakistan to Kamcatcha via the Capes...

This looks interesting! Just the other day 76Trombones and hmm and a couple of others were talking about a long race ... perfect timing!!
How about an AC72 polar:

22 knots upwind and 44 down ...
when do we start ?
Ha, can't wait for this race :)
Would be a lot less painful to do it at least in part downwind from Russia to Pakistan.

That AC72 polar looks good for this one.
Would be good if someone would take on the responsibility of preparing a kmz or, at a minimum, the coords :-)
here some markers :

From the south coast of Balochistan province somewhere near Port of Karachi, Pakistan (25°25′N 66°25′E) across the Arabian Sea, south-west through Indian Ocean, near Comoros, passing Namaete Canyon, near the South Africa coastline, across the South Atlantic Ocean, then west across Cape Horn, then north-west across the Pacific Ocean, near Easter Island, passing the antipodal point, near Amlia island, through the South Bering Sea and ending somewhere on the east-north coast of Kamchatka, near Ossora (59°38′N 163°24′E). This route is almost 32,000 km (20,000 mi) long.(Map from gcmap)

And I agree with dana, from .ru to .pk would be nice, windwise.

I think the winds would be more favorable traveling east, from Kamcatcha to Pakistan. There is a reason that most round the world races go west to east.
Would it be ok with this for the route?

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
