Just announcing the Osake Challenge slated for 2013.
This sailing "race" will begin in San Francisco (across the street from a sake factory) and end in Osaka Japan. It is a single handed smaller boat race (similar to the Jester Challenge in the Atlantic). Website is still under development as the webmaster is single handing back to Australia right now somewhere east of the Hawaiian islands. I will add the link when the webpage is up and running.
I just thought that this kind of nonsensical sailing event is exactly what the nonsensical folks of sailnet would be keen on hearing about, and the even more loopy and loony of you might actually try and sail it.
