Unraced but Proposed Races

Hi RC.... Plenty of "white" in May. Looks like a good opportunity to run some of the pending races already set up as listed in your spreadsheet.

If the server can handle it, I would suggest running at least 2-3 of the shorter(3-5day)events. Perhaps Lindesfarne, NE Archipelago, Hebrides Slalom, etc. Would also suggest reopening the discussion of how long to keep races open if this is a limiting factor for running more races and cleaning up the list a bit.

Should be a fun month!!

Hi ShamPir - thanks for checking the calendar. As always I keep an eye on what is still pending... and trade off "busyness" with what else is running.

The Lindisfarne will be run in June and I've just realised I haven't updated the thread running on that one.

76T has also suggested we look at the Shackleton Challenge for a gap-filler but I believe he is away at the moment.

The NE Archipelago I thought you were keeping for rough weather... if not then it is definitely long overdue for running!

The New Hebrides Slalom (not British Isles but Asia/Pacific) is another good one.. I had been waiting for SWR to get past Cape Horn so that we were out of the area.

Thank you!
Great ideas!
I will renew my focus to watch the NE US coast for a good spring-time low to blow through and let you know. The others all sound fun as well.

Always good to have some 75-200nm sprints waiting in the can to fill the gaps.

Thanks and great job as always RC!!

Swiftsure Lighthouse Race, Rund Skagen,Fyn Cup prep-race, Hiroshima-Kure, Mini 800NM (2 parts), Manila Race, May TransAT....
Bohusracet :-) I will try to stay awake the entire race this time
captjack - Excellent suggestions thank you!

spackel - we last raced the Bohusracet course in September, so its a bit recent but... it will run again for sure!!

Hi RC -

Time to load SWR leg 7? Starts in 3 days...

BTW nice avatar pic!

hugs, Ricos

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.
