The phrases "Fastnet 1979" and "Sydney-Hobart" and "Queen's Birthday" come to mind....

If those two people even exist, go for it

OsmundL Sure looks like a scam. Very little information available.

OsmundL Notice the route goes through Suez and the Indian Ocean. That should get rid of some 100,000 of them. Somalia may acquire a leisure fleet of its own.

JomsViking Why do people subscribe to the perceived safety of sailing in numbers? Even when participating in a rally, you're on your own most of the time WITH the added risk of collision with someone that did not feel ready to go alone. I stay away from most rallies because of that.

Who Needs Them

Are there really that many stupid wanabies out there in the boating world?

I suggest not. Now if they had any sense they would reduce the number to say... 10% (20,000 cruising sailors), then I'm in. That would be maybe Just 4,000 to 6,000 boats, that would be some boat parade. Can you imagine Christmas?

We could take over a small country, maybe two. We could call them the federated states of Winderlustberge or some other very catchy name and we could import women and rum and declare every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday a weekend. Monday and Thursday we could work or something and Sunday we would rest. Who's with me? Forget these guys, this Sailnet community can do it. I just know we can.

Do you think maybe Beneteau and Hunter would be able to supply some of the boats? I'll need one. And who's the Coast Guard Commander? Shouldn't someone tell him?

I love this idea! I'm 110% behind it.

According to their website the route is supposed to use the Panama/Suez canals. Either the setup is a scam or rather naÔve?
60,000 boats rounding the Horn, love it ...

Maybe someone is trying to clean up the gene pool a little bit ..

AdamLein The website accepts a PayPal and Google checkout so that you can pay for the various admission fees, registration fees, and dinner pass fees, but provides zero contact information. No names, no addresses, no phone numbers, not even an email address. It's definitely a scam.
