Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Seven Seas of Asia

And here's another proposal from bonknhoot.
Seven Seas of Asia.
Not oceans (even though The Seven Seas are oceans).
So not quite ocean racing, but long challenging races nonetheless in all sorts of climates and weather patterns.
Apologies not quite the precision of kmz files, but enough info for OPS to create a course from.

After a 6 year hiatus, we return to race the tricky route from Punta del Este in Uruguay to Auckland, New Zealand. Our former winner "longreacher" covered this route taking 16 days 10 hours 10 minutes and 44 seconds and he used the same boat. Let's see if we can bite into his record.

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
