The French Sailaway community have been very busy and have organised a gruelling 6-day solo race kicking off this Sunday!
This is a solo-only race using the Mini Transat. To take part, player’s will need to register with Sailaway Communaute Francophone via their site and join their discord group – instructions of how to do so and more about this race can be found here.
Sunday 18th June – 16:00 CEST / 15:00 BST / 07:00 PDT / 23:00 JST
Est. Race Distance: 600NM
Est. Race Time: 6 days
Boat: Mini Transat
Weather report: ☀️ https://on.windy.com/6d2h
Starting at Douarnenez in France, you will race past England and on to the south coast of Ireland, around Fastnet Rock and then back to to Douarnenez to finish.
This race is organised by a community group and hence is governed by their rules. There will not be a course laid out in Sailaway but rather your progress needs to be validated manually by yourself or a nearby competitor. See the race page using the link above for more information or ask someone from the community.
As it is managed and created by the community, please get in touch with the organisers here if you have any questions of problems.
Enjoy and safe sailing!
