This is the fifth edition of the Midsummer Solo Challenge. It’s something out of the ordinary for those who want to sail 120+ nm solo in one of the worlds most beautiful (and challenging) archipelagoes.
This at a time of year when the nights are warm and the sun barely sets (the photo above is from just before midnight).
Come with any boat you want. No ratings. No difficult rules. You just have to know how long it is. And have some basic safety equipment.
Show up on the starting line.
Enjoy the challenge.
Finish before 12.00 Sunday. Get your finisher polo and a beer. Share stories with your fellow skippers on our Facebook page.
June 16, Thursday, skippers meeting and dinner at the castle
June 17, Friday, starts during the day (small boats first)
June 18, Saturday, finishes during the day
June 19, Sunday, finishes during the morning
The course is around 123 nm. Just four marks, all port roundings. Couldn't be easier.
