    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread MARCH 2014.
    I appreciate that the Huelva course in not chosen for a championship race yet another time.

    One question regarding March 2nd. Is the announced race start an artifact from the February schedule, or does the second leg of the Steinlager2 RTW race start already on Sunday?

    Yet another question. Has there been a lot of negative feedback regarding different start times for the two sprint races? I personally don't care that much, I am just curious.

    I recommend the book "Championship Tactics - How anyone can sail faster, smarter, and win races" written by Gary Jobson and Tom Whidden with Adam Loory-
    ISBN 0-321-04278-7
    St Martin's Press, New York, 1990

    It is written in a narrative style that I found easy to follow (much easier than Bethwaite's book).
    It also has a pew pages on polars, VMG, and VMC that should get anyone started who is unfamiliar with those concepts.

Galveston to Galway 2022
For the second time, we will be able to test our navigational skills in this massive ocean race across the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean! You can navigate the 4980 NM to Galway, Ireland in any direction, of course within the designated race boundary area. Your only task is to reach the finish line in the best place, preferably at the highest podium. Prepare your C2R 74 well for the race and take advantage of all its opportunities. Good luck!

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
