    Aaron was one of life's "givers", whether it was help or skill, he offered both willingly. He will be sadly missed by us all. My condolences to his family and friends on one of life's most unfair acts.
    Rest in peace.

    Hi all
    I too, am very keen on the timed races, in fact any race which doesn't interfere too much with reality.

    Having discovered a sure way to diminish my pathetic ranking even further, I have stopped partaking in the "race for X hours, go to bed, run into rock" - or weekend races as they are known! (Looking at the entries, I may not be alone in this thought!)

    Now, given the popularity of RC's 'practice races', it occurs to me that there may be others who might prefer a shorter race, ie 8 to 12 hours, to take place during their normal waking hours.
    To be fair to all parts of the world, it would have to actually be 3 races starting say, 30 hours apart (to allow one race to finish before the next starts).
    Although the course would be the same, the wind would be variable, therefore the sailing time, but with a group start at least there would be fair competition within that group. Someone might even be able to figure out some handicap system to compare each group.

    The races would be identical with one start per group, eg
    Race 1. Monday start 08:00 UTC - finish no later than 20:00 UTC (for Europeans, SA, etc)
    Race 2. Tuesday start 14:00 UTC - finish 02:00 Wed (for the USA, Canada, etc)
    Race 3. Wed start 20:00 UTC - finish 08:00 Thurs (for the Aussies and Kiwis).
    (These could just as easily be juggled round to fit a weekend).

    This way, sleep deprivation is not part of the gameplan, and those with others to consider, do not have to risk divorce or death by setting the alarm for 3 am!

    Does anyone see any potential?

    Danny

    A song (to the tune of "Streets of Laredo" - sing with gusto ... (or anyone else :-)

    As I sailed down to the straits of Gibralter,
    The wind in my hair, and enjoying the day,
    I spied a young Soler, with tangled up halyards,
    a mast that was broken, sail-ing the wrong way.

    I thought "shall I help him", as he is in trouble,
    his sails were in tatters and looking like lace,
    I threw him a line, which he fastened securely,
    Now back in the race and we're after first place.

    "I thank ewe" :-D

    Don't worry, these are marks for the practice races held on the last few evenings. They will disappear on recall, one hour from the race start.

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!
