This is the first 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).

 

IT'S SIMPLE

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.

 

Register here.

 

Show up. Your fellow skippers will help you when you get to Marstrand.

 

Meet all the other skippers at dinner Thursday evening. It’s included. We’ll go through the starts and anything else you need to know.

 

Get some sleep.

 

Enjoy the challenge.

 

Finish before 12.00 Sunday. Get your finisher polo. Grab a beer. Share stories with your fellow skippers.
