  • 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 » Flag Officers » 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. :)

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
