Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Bohusracet - from spackel

Some time ago spackel proposed that SOL races the Bohusracet. The request was sitting on the shelf, but I am pleased to say the race is now set up and needs to be previewed to make sure that waypoints are in the right place(s) and that the course rhumbline makes sense!

Please feel free to check the race out as the sol boat:

And then click here.

Please post any comments/changes here!

Thanks spackel - this is great timing as we can probably fit this race in among the Tall Ships as they pass by from Stavanger to Halmstad!! Will make a fun contrast!!

Please note the race will stay open for preview for a couple of days.

The two marks in the water (Ulholmens kalv and Mjölkskärsfyr) are supposed to be passed on the inside, e.g. mark on starbord.

One more point, they have actually shortened the race to finish in Smögen this year. Perhaps we could change the course to be like in the attached pic.

Hi spackel - course changed.. how does it now look to you?

You said
The two marks in the water (Ulholmens kalv and Mjölkskärsfyr) are supposed to be passed on the inside, e.g. mark on starbord.
- the first on is a "pass on inside" but I have removed the second so that folks then have the choice of going inside or not. Due to the way the SOL rhumline works to force an inside there would require several other waypoints which would look untidy I think.

Hi RC,

That looks good!

cheers
Another Great Race!

A maddening leg to the first mark... LOVE IT!! Have to stock up on even more BBQ supplies.

Thanks Spackel and RC.
Great Work!

OK closing it now pre Tall Ships start!!

Thanks!
AHOY SOLers this race was due to run this weekend but as we will (probably) still be running our Square Riggers down to Halmstad, something tells me that sailing J80s at the same time in the same waters might not be that much fun!

SO

It has been moved to race on Saturday, 18 September :-)

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.
