Fully agreed with the seniments above re the client upgrade... Kudo's to Aaron (wherever he may be sailing fair winds now)
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Toujours ému lors des courses au sujet d'Aaron Gage. je ne pouvais pas faire les autres. Dommage
Agage's 100 Race 2014

SOL's gift to the memory of AGage was a year long series of races circumnavigating Australia. This was the final sprint of that memorial and now being raced to mark the 2nd anniversary of the too-sudden end to the life of this remarkable SOLer. These were Aaron's homewaters - he was a total competitor so... race to win!

Grazie per tutto Aaron, riposa in pace.
While six years seems a long time, in so many ways it feels like just yesterday that we learned of Aaron's unexpected death. Every day on Sailonline, there is something to remind us that without him the site would be so much poorer. {{{Hugs to his family}}}
The AGage 50 is being raced again (first run in 2015).... and one of the races Aaron designed (the Tour Downunder) is also in our 2019 Q3 calendar.

For those new to Sailonline this thread, and our honouring Aaron's memory with at least one race a year, should show just how remarkable a contribution he made, not just in matters technical, but also in the enormous amount of personal time he gave to helping all new to the platform.

<raises a glass> Still missed, mate.

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
