During this Race, the Chineese chatroom will be flooded with Danish teenagechat. I suppose :-)

Dear all sailors in AFR 2011 !!

Thank you for your response on this Race.

I am very sorry, not having being as much online, as I had planned - very far from!!

Unfortunally, I was called away, Saturday 10 a.m., because my Father-in-law was very sick, and actually passed away at 3 am, Sunday morning.

Therefor, you missed a lot of information during the course - also, I was not able to wake up my students, because of very little online access.

I hope you will join again next year, where we will start later, friday (like 1800 UTC).

Again. Thank you all :-)

FRI Hawk54.
Hi Hawk so sorry to hear about your father-in-law.

The winds weren't conducive to an active race.. maybe we run it in the spring-time rather than end-summer next year?

The course is a really excellent one and, picking a time of year with strong(er) winds should make the race a lot more challenging.



Oct/Nov next year we can run AFR again.

Actually I was a little dissapointed about the course in the beginning, but during the Race, I found that it did have several fine points. Adding some wind, and it is an OK Race I think.

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.
