GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!!!

Commentary
And so, the TIMED RUN Series ends with a tricky triangle in beautiful modern cruiser racers on the beautiful, if slightly chilly waters of the Aland Sea. Was that Smo on his long touring skates on the eastern horizon as we negotiated Tollingarna? As per the previous instalment, the best wind was once again found right at the end of the three week window, with Kipper1258’s nose for the perfect breeze proving infallible for a last time in 2018.

Well done then Kipper1258, who also wins the Series overall, and well done Beliberda too, gaining a first Timed podium place; more to come, your reporter reckons!

Commentary
One of the many joys of Sailonline is that we are able to voyage in the footsteps of giants (or sail in their wakes!). Find us the appropriate performance polar, and let our Polar Gurus work their magic, and we can be racing tall ships, longships, modern racers around the world, historic courses. Our Shackleton Challenge was a four-race series designed several years ago and, by judicious selection of polars from the Sailonline boathouse, the two legs raced in our Class B Tall Ship and the two legs raced in our Draken longship, have given all of us a sense of the limited sailability of Shackleton’s “Endurance” as well as the limited manoeuverability of his jury-rigged rowing boat, the “James Caird”. Arguably this series has, as originally designed, brought all of us a little closer to understanding just what an immense endeavour it was for Sir Ernest Shackleton to bring his crew back to safety.

Our series winners are to be congratulated on their success. As you can read from reports by two of our podium, things weren’t all plain sailing and this, too, is borne out by the differences in points gained during the series. A big thank you to all who took part and an even bigger Well Done to our podium!

Shackleton Challenge 2018 - Leg 4 - RESULTS

GRATULACJE WRMirekd!!!
HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH outlaw!! GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!

Race Leaderboard


Narrative
Leg 4 - In what is widely regarded as one of the great feats of navigation and sailing, Shackleton and 5 crew sail a whaleboat 800nm to South Georgia, which they then cross on foot, reaching the whaling port of Stromness and securing rescue for the expedition. 3 months later, the entire remaining crew is rescued.

Reports

Commentary
This fourth and final leg of Sailonline’s first Shackleton Challenge was very straightforward – at least the course was – and so it sailed. Even with such a straightforward race there were many SOLers using routing but, curiously, a simple TWA course for the first couple of days also produced a good result. Once again our wonderful longship stood in for the rowing boat and jerry-rigged sail of the original expedition and racers seemed to adapt to its limitations with ease.

The last leg of a series is always somewhat poignant and this one perhaps more than usual as, for those who took time to read the story of the Imperials Trans-Antarctic Expedition it brings to an end our sail in the wakes of heroes.

As always, many congratulations to our podium – who together with the 4th arrival, found themselves running ahead of the chasing fleet. Bravo, guys!

Isla San Lorenzo RTI 2018
SOL’s SRC (Sailonline Race Committee) has taken us to some unusual places in the past, and San Lorenzo Island off Lima’s Callao peninsula is definitely another one. Housing a naval base and a penal institution, no vessel is allowed within 300m of its shores. Also, with no sources of potable water, it is a matter of debate whether it is an island at all, and not just a large rock. So, whatever you do, don’t be tempted to BBQ; you’ll be arrested and go thirsty! Thirteen potentially unlucky miles in Farr 30s; have fun!!

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
