Hi, I think that a discussion about what races to run in the future would be nice. All users with a constructive opinion is welcome in the thread. When shall we race, where from, where to, what boat types etc?

...one of the guys behind the game...
Why not have a TP52 race circus. Short fleet race. One day race, 5 days..

The rolex cirquit we are doing at the moment is quite good. Im not sure if we have enough weather detail for "part of day" racing.
I would love to do a longer atlantic leg or a dive in the southern ocean.

I had mentioned the Round of Texel and maybe the archipelago raid, but then we have to fit in some sort of paddle mode :)
I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
Some ideas (these would perhaps be attractive for possible US players):

Fort Lauderdale to Charleston Race
(http://www.stormtrysail.org/, 408nm, April 23rd @ 1400 EDT)

Newport to Bermuda
(http://www.bermudarace.com/, 635 nm, June 20 @ 1300 EDT)

Transpac Tahiti Race
(http://www.transpacificyc.org/, 3.571 nm, June 22 @ 1300 PDT, Honolulu next race 2009)

Volvo Suursaari Race
(http://www.espoosuursaarirace.org/, 160 nm, June 6 @ 1800 UTC)

Gotland Runt preliminary race in 40 feet "normal" boat
(so that those that a participating in the real race can fine tune our skills ;-)

This one looks like fun, perhaps a little long though...6-9 days in an open 60'.
Take a look at: www.calaisroundbritainrace.com/index-uk.php.html

This could perhaps be fun, in an exotic kind of way: CIRCUITO ATLÁNTICO SUR ROLEX CUP, Olivos/Buenos Aires - Punta del Este, Argentina/Uruguay, 14th Jan 2008.(http://www.yca.org.ar/Gallery/674.pdf)

Approximately 175 nm (those guys seem to have preetty shallow waters there).

Maybe we could even attract some South American players with us?

Would this be even better: 02-XXIIº Regata Oceánica Rolex Buenos Aires - Río de Janeiro 9 feb 2008 15:00 Argentinian time, approx. 1.123 nm
Why dont we challenge Francis Joyon from the equator to finish?
Why not Venerrace;-)
180Nm whith a Sunfast 3200!
or make it shorter so we dont have to spend all weekend at the computer! As an alternative.


Make a new race "scandinavian open" from Copenhagen to Luleå and back

Round the world. Can it be done? I'd like to see live races running alongside real race events such as fastnet.

We're doing it all the time (races alongside real races)! Last race was Sydney Hobart, we've also done Middle Sea Race, Fastnet etc.

Stay tuned - more races are coming!

Regarding Around the world, we might do it sooner or later...

Current Races:

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.
