Was trying to post this last night:

RC was asking about router forecasts for the Rum Run. It's still over 4 days to the race so any router output would be suspect at best. Last year the race was won by PetrM in 7 days 5 hours and 25.7 min. Nearest to 24 hours behind him was DariusDr (#118) 8 days 5 hours 31.18 min. Closest to 30 hours behind PetrM was Echium (#145) in 8 days 11 hours 30.67 min. Last boat to finish was Renegade (#187) in 9 days 13 hours 21.48 min.

So it does look like moving up to the 10th should work. The only question now is how long is race 3 of the SYCC?
Ahoy, dreadful pirates ! Arrrr....

"Rackham the Pinkish" is me name for this Rum Run.

Sayya ! Ya'd betta use it to get me answer ! Aye !

the writers of Blackadder would have loved this :-D

Sailonline will shortly be running its annual rum race through the Caribbean. Run in proximity to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19) it has become a tradition for SYC Members to have the option of changing their normal SOL boat names just within this one race to one influenced by the pirate theme.

I'd like to be Barbaneuro if possible
thank you

This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
