Race The Greatest Climb 2019 - RESULTS

FELICITATIONS knockando60!!!

Race Leaderboard

This race, designed in 2012 in aid of the British Parkinson's Charity "Wobbly Williams", your commentator understands purports to replicate the route taken by climbers of Kilimanjaro, but transposed into the Arabian Gulf. A noble cause and an unusual course. One does wonder though, what translations were used in placing the various virtual marks in the sea that the resultant slalom took our racers round. They certainly were not linear, as that would mean the equivalent trek on land starts somewhere in Somalia, diverts out to sea before ever reaching Nairobi, returns ashore to ascend the summit, to head out to sea once again to recuperate somewhere east of Zanzibar, as shown HERE.

This whimsical facet, however, takes nothing away from the impressive return to SOL and an immediate return to form of our winner knockando60, who cornered the course in 9 days 13:21:59 flat.
Skilful steering, indeed!

Leg Results

Series Reports

Sailonline regularly races around the E coast of New Zealand’s North Island and, arguably, some of us are more familiar with the waters of the Hauraki Gulf than we are of the waters around our own countries, but it is seven years since we last raced a full circumnavigation of both of New Zealand’s islands. Last time, as now, we were buddied with SSANZ and being able to bring the tracks of the real racers on-screen, and follow updates via social media, really creates a sense of participating in a real event.

The initial hop from Auckland to Mangonui was just a wee tester – checking that all was shipshape. Leg 2, the longest leg from Mangonui, around the top of North Island and then the full length of South Island's west coast to Stewart Island, was challenging – particularly for the real racers as they encountered the full power of winds and currents from the Southern Ocean, but no less challenging for our virtual fleet as wx updates across potentially fickle conditions became crucial. Leg 3 still didn’t feel like a “home run” and the shelter afforded real and virtual fleets by the landmass of South Island meant that tactics really came into play – some finding choice spots for bbq (mostly unintentionally) and others really bringing all skill to bear. Finally Leg 4 – a “Coastal Classic” race, to all intents and purposes, was a fun run back to Auckland but familiarity with the course and the phase from Coromandel into Auckland didn’t mean any less need to really concentrate.

Those who gained podium places in each of Sailonline’s Legs are to be congratulated for their performances, while our Series winners are to be complimented on their consistent performance and admired for their skill at steering their Sunfast 3600s to such success. Very well done to all of you!

Sardinia Cup 2019 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard


The Western Mediterranean is ofttimes windy in early March. However, this slightly untimely re-enactment of the Sardinia Cup, over SOL's own fantasy course, found the weather docile, featuring a long beat all the way up the west coast, where the race was won and lost, as the forecasts changed from one update to the next, making it tricky indeed to judge when and for how long to hitch away from the gaining port tack north out to where the wind was stronger west.

Our winner's ij's mastery of these choices proved to be exceptional, but his pursuers were never far behind, closing the gap to just 5 minutes on the run in to the finish at Cannigione. Impressive from ij, but well done rafa and WRmirekd hanging on to ij's coattails also! Watch it all in bimmer's timelapse production HERE.
