Hello sailors!

This is a SOS call for SOL administrators!

Because of the serious pathology, very common and widespread, between everybody SOL virtual sailors, the "sailoholics", myself as suffering from this illness, I do this SOS call to the Administrators of SOL for which with urgent character they administer us our medicine, loading a new race!

Please it is only for health questions!

Best regards!

I'm suffering the same diagnosis of Sail Online Anxiety Syndrome (SOAS) as Xinanhook!

Typical symptoms of SOAS: restlessness; sense of dread that others may be competing in a race you missed; constant need to log in to sailonline.org to check for news; temptation to enter the VS Privateer race (again!).

I've tried the medicine of the RGS and St Malo but think I need something way more powerful like a Governor's Cup Cape Town to St Helena (1690 miles), or a Newport to Bermuda (690 miles) or how about the ultimate? A 16,400 mile circumnavigation of Antarctica (Antarctica Cup Ocean Race) in a Volvo 70, where the inaugural time of 102 days was just set.

Hi Huch and Xinan,

There is some racing still left, ST Malo is still open, although no nice weather windows.
We will have a look and see what race we can put out there again. We will soon have something available for you.

Good luck with the symptoms of SOAS Sailonline Anxiaty Syndrome until we have a race up again.

I am a ex-admin of SOL who joins in from time to time.
I know its short notice but Newport -Bermuda starts June 20th 2008 1300hrs Est.
Could race as Rambler sized boats same polars as Transpac? They have I-Boat tracking for added interest(like Sydney-Hobart)
Maybe also Gulf Stream can be added to really tax us?
Carry on Regardless
Hi Seafly - Newport/Bermuda would be great (anything would be great, actually ;O)). Adding s/ware vector to represent the GS would be way cool.
What about the olympics.
Maybe are the courses too short?
Can there be more timed races. So I can train and learn the program?

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.
