Sorry, that was me as sol.
“We may have arrived on different ships, but we are all in the same boat now!” Martin Luther King Jr.
The one-a-month idea sounds about right to me too... and I like the idea that the finish in Adelaide should sort-of coincide with Aaron's anniversary. My personal preference is no official series but... let's see how others respond. I've put a link to my earlier post into FB to spread the word.
I think it should be an official series and only drop one race.

Great work with the race, looking forward to it.

My two cents on this Topic:

Make it a Series with no drops. Remebering AGages Efforts on SOL, the winner of this series should need to pay maximum efforts too.

Don't let the gaps between the Stages become too long, to keep the Series together. A Weekend-Race every Month doesn't look much like a connected Series...
I don't know how fixed the dates have to be according to other scheduled races, but maybe the gaps might match the time the winner spent on the last Leg.

As it is an Aussie series the Starts shall be during Aussie-daytime which is early morning or middle of the night in Europe and USA, so starts should be scheduled on Weekends as it might be easier to stay awake if there's no Alarm ringing next morning. ;)
Sounds very good

Agree with Taz. No Drops. I have never agreed with idea of drops in sail racing--it is just "pretend"---that "I" didn't do THAT badly!!!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
This may be a really stupid question but what are drops?

I think Rod means "dropping a race from the series" ... so the result isn't the sum of all the results but just the sum of X out of Y (total) races.

:-)

I think i agree.. either no series OR a full series. Aaron would deffo be all for a full series!!
Ahoi Pat !

Drops are if in a series ,for example, just your best 6 results of ten races are counted. The 4 worse results "drop" out of the ranking, i.e. are not counted...

My two cents :

In this very special case I think every race should be counted, no drops.. If every race is as well counted for SYC ranking, sailors can concentrate to do a few good races or go for the series...

Cheers,

Roland..

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. 😊
