    Default 2018 SHTP - Start Date?

    When is it!?!?

    July is 10 months away, and that's not a lot of time to prep a boat for this kind of race - do we have a start date???


    Thanks,

    Jason

    2016 NOR was dated September 15, 2015. So I think we're close to seeing the 2018 NOR. Looking at prior year start dates, I'm guessing June 30, 2018. That's all of 310 days away, but who's counting?

    Well then, when you put it like that, it makes my stomach lurch a bit! I am not aware that the dates have been set yet, but I recall some vague discussion during one of the meetings about starting it a bit earlier to avoid the hurricanes. Nothing was decided as I recall.

    Are you new to SSS? If so, welcome! Do you have your boat in the bay area?

    I am new to SSS. But I keep my boat in Galveston Bay (yes, she's tucked away right now as Harvey sits off the coast). She's Olson 30 #202 ("Concussion"). We just finished up the Bermuda 1-2 and had a blast, although finishing with a broken mast was a bit of a challenge.

    Yeah, good to get the mast tested and bomb proof if you want to sail off into the sunset here. I've only done the LongPac thus far, but it can certainly be a bit "sporty" for the first few hundred miles offshore. See you next year!

    I had heard of June 11th ... but yeah it'd be good to see the date finalized :-)

    not to put an end to the speculation; It will be a Saturday, and it will be in June.

    Unofficially, 6/23 is the most likely date.
    NOR should be out early next week.
