Every year I go through the ritual of going through the calendars of all the different racing series I follow to see what's happening when and where. (I usually get to this mid-February after the rush at the start of the rallying season has died down.) Aside from my involvement in motorsports I also follow a lot of other series as well... and then there's the sailing. So many different events have 2 year, 3 year, or 4 year intervals, but 2017 seems to be when a bunch of them sync up and fall within the same year. America's Cup Superyacht Regatta: June 13th - 15th - Offshore racing north-east and south of Bermuda J Class Regatta: June 16th, 19th & 20th - Murray's Anchorage, Bermuda LVAC: May 26th to June 27th - Great Sound, Bermuda IMOCA Fastnet: August 6th - Cowes, Isle of Wight Transat Jacques Vabre: November 6th - Le Havre, France to Salvador de Bahia, Brasil Volvo Ocean Race Start: October 22nd - Alicante, Spain Class 650 Mini Transat: October 1st - La Rochelle to Las Palmas de Gran Canarias to Le Marin, Martinique. Aside from those there's of course a host of other events around the world, from the humble Le Figaro to the unparalleled St. Barth's Bucket. If any members here happen to be in the vicinity of any of these events, please snap some pics and share them with us!
