  • Re: Sailors with routers
    Board » General Discussion
    I, who was an opponent of the router before, have realized that it´s not worth anything to begin putting too much boundaries and putting everybody in the same box. You just have to accept that there will be different opportunities out there, just like that we have more or less time to spend on this. I also believe that those who sail with router runs a small risk of being wrong if they rely on the router too much. They must, after all, to think a little longer than 6 hours, just like the rest of us.

    Besides ... it is possible to beat them ...;-)

  • Round Gotland Race
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    Hi all!

    Thanks for racing Round Gotland Race. It was a pleasure to race IRL and to add that to this virtual race. To bad there was tecnical problems whit the starting procedure and our gunshot come at 11:15utc. At the beginning of the race we gaining on you and even overtake you for a while ;) But after our "6-hour windhole" between Hoburgen and Knolls Groud it was to much distance to catch.

    Congrats to Winston for victory!!

    In the real race we lost a lot last leg and went from #6th down to #17th...so I am a bit disapointed. Last year we end up as #4 so our realistic goal this year was to get the podium. Better luck next time I guess ;)
    If I take our sailed time on course I ended up on the 34th place, between Ailara and Ned Leo, here on SOL.
    I hope you all got more sleep than I... only 3 hours totaly for me...so I am glad to have one more week of vaccation..;))

    Thx again and extra Thanks to RainbowChaser and "her commitycrew" for making this race.

    See you soon on SOL-races

    Hello all

    Clarifying :)

    Svandinavian Tour and Åland sea race is not the same race
    There will be a Scandinavian Tour Leg2 but no start-time is set up yet. If I have understood everything right, Rainbow will set up next leg asap and ofcourse it must be a suitable gap in the Racecalender.
    Have a nice day all and thx for racing Scandinavian Tour with me. :)

    BTW, try this man... Hans Mäkinen at hans@ksss.se He is the Commercial Director of this event and have responsible for partnership and things like that. I don´t know him personaly by it is worth a try I guess. The race is needed more visibility and they are doing some changes to get that vis. :)

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. 😊
