    I think Midsummer Solo Challenge is a good place to start. 123 nm solo along the west coast w start and finish in Marstrand. We see a few minis participating each year.

    Baltic 500 should be the logical choice? Own class and 10 boats already registered.

      Maybe a tough challenge in an all-new boat (especially in something as complex as a mini)?

      For an ambitious first season, I would do Midsummer Solo Challenge, Bohusracet with a friend/coach and then try to get a spot in Silverrudder in September.

        But then it is double handed. I don’t know how comfortable I would be sailing a Mini through the Islands, solo, as a beginner.

        Bohusracet can be an idea, eventhough I think the long legs of the Baltic 500 can be very good to figure out the boat. Depends a bit on how comfortable one is to sail long(er) distances.

        So maybe the other “offshore” races then: HH Skagen (often quite windy, or?), GOR, Robline Skagen.
        I think sailing a mini in our typical round (or thorugh) the islands races isn’t as much fun as sailing a mini on the sea, with a bit of water around.

    There is a Pogo 2 for sale in Denmark:

    I think one of Pogo 1’s in Göteborg could be for sale also even if it is not advertised at the moment…

    Late summer there is Vegvisir race in Denmark, solo or doublehanded with different length circuits, mixed inshore/offshore. Getting there and back is an additional try-out for you and the boat.
