SoCal 300 2020

California Offshore Race Week may not be happening this year but Covid-19 doesn’t stop virtual sailors. So Sailonline is delighted to announce that we will again be partnering with the prestigious San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) for the 2020 running of the SoCal300 race, if only in virtual reality. SDYC has been racing in reality in the waters off San Diego for over 130yrs and in 2016 it became the first USA West Coast yacht club to bring virtual sailing navigation to its members and the west coast sailing community. This makes 2020 the fifth year that SDYC will be offering a virtual version of the SoCal300.

As is tradition, the SoCal300 is the third and final ocean race of California Race Week’s series of races and sees the virtual fleet race the usual slalom course from Santa Barbara to San Diego, starting on 28 May.

There is no ‘real fleet’ this year so Sailonline will not be able to overlay their tracker feed onto the virtual race screen. We will however be using the same polar as in 2019 – the Santa Cruz 52. There were three direct competitors in the 2019 race – Lucky Duck, Prevail and Triumph – plus there were five Santa Cruz 50s for close company. Sailonline's race is now open for pre-race practice and it is all free to participate.

A3 2020 - Leg 5 - Brisbane to Hamilton Island - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard

Sailing from Brisbane to Hamilton Island is, we are told by our Australian SOLers, just (mostly) sheer delight – when winds are favourable, the wealth of marine-life and the increasingly uncluttered coastline makes for an idyllic time on-water. Racing this Leg of our Around Australia memorial to Aaron Gage brings home just how brilliant is the sailing around the coast of Australia and how wonderful its marine environment.
Let us hope the environmentalists win the day and this part of our globe can continue to survive, relatively undamaged. Nicely done podium!

Overall Ranking after Leg 5.

Gibraltar TIMED Race 2020 - RESULTS

GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!!!

Our race invitation this time, as so often, was very beguiling

“Welcome to the legendary Pillars of Hercules and a TIMED race that starts in the Atlantic Ocean and finishes in the Mediterranean Sea, some 48nm away. This should be a brilliantly competitive affair in our X-332s.”

But however enticing the description, sweeping us away from the cold reality of competitive racing, the truth of the matter is that to do well in a TIMED race you really do need to spend some time reviewing upcoming weather, because although you can race a course again, as often as you like, so long as you complete a previous run, you need to pick the likely fastest option so as not to miss it. You can do this very easily on-screen by sliding the wx slider forward and, as a ballpark, can identify when the course sees the optimal winds for the boat we are racing. Some SOLers do spend time running the course through routing software but, with 7-day wind forecasts, even without using a router you can get a sense of when, in the upcoming days, will be a good time to start and do well, as our podium this time demonstrates.

Congratulations then to our podium this time – starting on the same day, within 20mins of each other – their podium-place-taking times were only 7 seconds apart. Well raced, guys!

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
