    Question Top Sailing events in the world?

    Trying to update an internet calendar of the most important sailing (racing) events in the world. Would appreciate feedback as to what is missing (or what shouldn't be there!). The current list can be seen here https://caltrics.com/calendar/the-wo...calendar/46539

    That is an extremely limited list, I must say. I know of quite a few events that are of great significance that should be listed, here are just a few:
    Swiftsure
    Lake Ontario 300
    Southern Straits
    VanIsle 360
    Race To Alaska
    Transpac
    La Solitare de Figaro

    There are lots and lots more that should be on the list.

    Mini Transat 22 September 2019

    But this is a very difficult list to prepare. What are the criteria? What kinds of races to you want to include? Round the cans? Offshore? Ocean? Global?
    What do you need to get onto the list? Based on number of entries? International nature of the event?

    You have missed Stone Sailing Club's Thursday night series. Started last night. Not sure if anybody turned up, because it was peeing with rain. But to some of us that is a lot more important than the Sidney Hobart.

    The seriously wealthy bring their bits of maritime history and sail the snot out of them in the sunshine.

    The Mango Bowl Regatta in St L:ucia is still small, but it has good potential to become bigger.
