Impatient to wait until the morning, four of the usual matchracing suspects (sassy, robert, perenkist and rainbow) started off at 2030... joined from the SOL start-point at 2320 by two others (newsartist/africa).

The attached .kmz file should open in GoogleEarth and show how they are doing!!

Reports from the race:

1. newsartist 23:49: Perenkist, Robert, Sassy, newsartist, RC and Africa, (order by eyeball)

2. newsartist 00:09: At the frist turn: Sassy, Robert, Perenkist, newsartist, RC, and Africa

3. newsartist 03:03: Wake up RC! Your autopilot cut early, and you are a long way from your morning start!
RainbowChaser 03:43: news! only just heard your hail of 0303 but thank you!!
RainbowChaser 03:52: I wonder if the 90d portion is because I hit the SOL boundary? I never set that as a DC.
RainbowChaser 04:00: OK next DC: 05:12:16 / 352d!! there8d better not be another server generated one before then!!

The offical first Zilt practice Matchrace started at 1000utc with only four racers - africa, Bacchus, Perenkist and Rainbow.

By 1030 africa was leading Perenkist from Bacchus but Rainbow had already fallen foul of a laundry-run-aground and was lying 4th (SOLing and domestic chores don't always mix well) :-)

1300 and there are some changes in the interim rankings: 1. Bacchus 2. africa 3. Perenkist 4. Rainbow

1845 and Race 1 is suffering the effects of easing winds and with a change in destination (to help the start of Race 2) there has been a change in rankings again: 1. africa 2. Bacchus 3. Rainbow 4.Perenkist. 76Trombones and Smo are also following the course.

The finish of this Race 1 was a little curtailed as the weather meant the fleet were running behind the start-time for Race Two.

Accordingly,the race stopped at 28W with final rankings as before.

NOTICE OF AMENDMENT

The first matchrace was popular with its participants and as there has been no interest in a re-run of Race 1 at 2000hrs, the racing this evening is amended in line with the attached picture of the new course.

Start: 2100hrs / as close to 2100hrs as the Race 1 participants make it!!

From: 39.09 / -28.00

To AND Round: Faial SOL Race Start point

Back To: 39.02 / -28.02

ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN IN!!

FURTHER CORRECTION DUE TO LATE RUNNING OF RACE 1

The Start for Race 2 will now be:

39.02 / -28.02

The Start Time remains as close to 2100 as possible, but will be held for the arrival of the Race 1 boats.

RACE TWO REPORTING

Due to the overrun of Race 1, the start for Race 2 was staggered with some starting from the revised start point and others (Race1 participants) from the 28W line (the change in perf due to angle being the offsetting factor).

Altogether,the following boats are racing:

africa (CRO), Bacchus (NED), news (USA), robert (SWE), veritassemper (GBR), Smo (FIN), Scott (AUS), Rainbow(GBR),??sassy(SWE), ??Vic (GBR)

(??=boats that didn't go at the gun, but were positioned to race).


OVERNIGHT REPORT

newsartist 02:02: The following were on land believed to have finished in this order: 1-RC, 2-Bacchus, 3-?Africa, 4?-Scott, newsartist finished at 0152, veritassemper just before Sassy at 0153.

newsartist 02:04: Robert missed the island, closest approach was at 0154. Smo is still 17.8 miles out.

By1849 the fleet had grown by one,welcome to Tazumaki (GER), Smo had realised the new rounding for today and the fleet had split into two groups.

Heading E,for a clockwise rounding of Terceira were newsartist,sassy and Scott,while heading S with a counter-clockwise rounding in mind were africa, robert, Calamity, Bacchus,Smo,Rainbow and Tazumaki.

At 1854 africa discovered that he had been planning to round a different island.. sadly this meant his gybing was left a little late. Smo, meanwhile, had stopped for a quick run ashore!! In the N group, newsartist and Scott were running v close together with sassy a little further to the south. In the S group, Bacchus, Tazumaki and robert were neck and neck, with Rainbow a little further back.

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.
