Inviting SOLers to experience ‘old school’ sailing 1968 style.
SRC is inviting SOLers to commit to emulating the real racers in this 50th year anniversary of Robin Knox Johnson’s voyage in Suhaili by committing to race your similar SOL boat (Rustler 36) with no outside assistance, i.e. _NOA, for the feeder, fleet and timed races. See what they have to experience whilst still availing yourself of confirmed six-hour weather (be most grateful as the real sailors do not have even that benefit), dry clothes, a warm and steady bunk, hot food, showers, a country walk to the pub, library etc. and some company etc.!
As a RETRO Race, for the Golden Globe, generally speaking only equipment that was available to Robin Knox Johnston on Suhaili in 1968 may be used. That means NO GPS, Chart plotters, electronic wind instruments, electric autopilots, electronic log, iPhone, satellite phones, digital cameras, computers, cd players, pocket calculators electronic clocks and watches, water makers, carbon fibre, Kevlar, spectra etc… so it is back to film cameras, cassette tapes, sextants, wind up clocks, trailing logs and Dacron sails, wind vanes and typewriters.
Suhaili was a slow, sturdy 32ft double-ended ketch based on a William Atkins ERIC design. She was heavily built of teak and carried no computers, GPS, satellite phone nor water-maker, and Robin completed the challenge with no outside assistance or aid of modern day shore-based weather routing advice. He had only a wind-up chronometer and a barograph to face the world alone, and caught rainwater to survive.
Let us see how we match up to Sir Robin and those brave enough to go out to sea and accept the challenge. Whilst SOL is unable to totally mirror the course for the real racers (see http://goldengloberace.com/the-route/ ) SOL is substantially sailing the same course after a feeder leg and then in a fleet race ,including the 90 minute stopover in Storm Bay Tasmania, followed by a Timed race back to Les Sables d'Olonne.
Please add your boat name below in a response to this post as a record of your commitment to sail Seat Of The Pants (SOTP) for the feeder and then the whole race of about 300 days!

I accept the rules, because that's the way I always surf.
Greetings, Trampantojo.

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.
