Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category Races.
Rough idea for a Sunday race in Orange, to set us up for a couple more races.

PROVISIONAL: Leave Start and round the two islands ~54.7s 64.2w, then to ground on tiny island in protected bay at 55.0s 66.9w.

Briefing at 1700z where any changes might be made. Provisional Match Race Start at 1700z.

Details will be firmed up tomorrow. This is open to all SOLers who want to play with the new boat under close racing conditions.
I just realized a typo in my previous notice. :(

Race Start was 1700z with the Brief supposed to be 1600. Sorry folks, I posted 1700 for both....

The First Match Race is underway. Anybody who missed it can set up a second pack and race at a later time TBD by you.

Today's Finish, (and the Start for tomorrow,) is the beach at 55.06s 66.85w.

Meet us there overnight, if you can't race today. [b[Open to ANY SOL PLAYER!
The following are the suggested race-courses for tonight's race:

(1) Round Picton, Lennox, Nueva(90nm)

(2) to Los estados (74.5nm)

(3) to and round Los estados (finishing there OR back at start)
(4) round Navarino and back to start (130nm)
MY PROPOSITION

I propose that in view of clock shifting and always longer daytime, we postpone our future practice races for 2000 UTC.
The races to be short but complicated

Soon, you will have more participants to your practice matchraces than to the normal races
;)
Yes INCO this nice person RAINBOW CHASER (RC) is providing wonderful entertainment for us racer, willing to race short races, while race still in practice.
These short races are often more interesting than real race.
However we participants give hard time to RC by all our voices making a chaos which is hard to support sometimes,and we are only 10-15 at max.
Now you imagine what would be with 50 boats or even more.
RC is doing a wonderful work but we racers should improve.Me for first as you know what I asked RC in yday's race: to change the direction of the rounding of the island in order that I can play tennis.Imagine everybody asking some kind of favors before and in the middle of the race.

At the end I say -thank you RC for these short races
africa - thank you! I changed the course yesterday because I understood folks to want a different one to the one I had posted... the change also required amending the island rounding to clockwise. I hesitated to do this in case others had set DCs but because I had no idea who would be racing, and I knew you would, your request convinced me to make the change!

Anyway.. I think there was a helpful discussion in chat last night and.. it is important that IRL sailing-SOLers who matchrace propose good race-courses for us!! Hope you agree :-)

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
