Thanks RC and Stoerte I agree a Full series with no drops makes it more fun and the winner will have to give a very good fight and will be more challenging because I don't think its fair if the winner only sails 6 races and the rest sail 10 races and second nearly beats 1st I have to go for no drops (sorry for the long message just trying to show what I think :-) )

Quite agree with Tazu, Rod and Stoerte (and Patrick)... No drops in this one. All results should count... sweat it out SOLers...
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...

Love it Tyger, to think that I wanted to move to Green Island 25 years ago. Still had the money :)

OK folks, Leg 7 is now ready for preview/comments.

Think all looks good - only q maybe is the finish in Darwin as part of the finish line is obscured. We can fix this by EITHER making the finish line shorter and moving it a tad so it just overlaps the bay entrance, OR moving it outside the bay.

View please!!

Leg 7 is now archived until needed

P.S. Aaron's mom agrees that he would have been a "no drops" guy so.. the series will be ALL 9 results counting :-D

I've been tinkering with the draft blogpost for this race - an introductory blog that will set the scene - to see what I have come up with please click here

and... of course, let me know what you think of it!

We really do want to get this to be one of SOL's biggest ever participations, if possible!

Deadline for comments - as I think we need to have this up on the homepage, shortly before Leg 1 opens for practice, the deadline for comments will have to be 1400utc tomorrow, Friday 20 September. That allows 24hrs!! :-D

As no comments posted or received, apart from corrections to the map of AUS, I will shortly be putting the intro blog on the Homepage! Let's start getting this show on the road!!

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. 😊
