The Race is the name of the 800 mile wide strait between Luwedne and Forosth. It is the outlet of the Fairge into the Equatic Ocean. There are a number of islands scattered throughout, mainly close to the shores of larger islands. Helopsy is the largest of these, a jungle-covered island situated two hundred miles east of Luwedne. The Arosd Archipelago lie just off the south-eastern coast of Forosth, and these include the island of Grifne where lies the famed and feared Mansion Lammacia, stronghold of the Attuned Wind.
The Race is so named as it a swift and treacherous body of water, made dangerous by colliding oceanic currents and frequent storms.
