Commentary
First raced in 2011, this is only the second time that Sailonline has tackled the UK’s Western Approaches off Devon and Cornwall, in this challenging course. This year saw seasonally-typical winds hurtling in off the Atlantic, and our race experienced the tail of one front, a lull, and the beginnings of a second front of Storm Atiyah . For 2019-2020 the national weather services of Ireland, UK and the Netherlands are sharing storm names to give a consistent approach. WX systems are deemed storms if they meet specific criteria relating to damage to property, risk to life etc.

It was soon realised that this race, likely to take a few days even for the front runners, was going to require a combination of skill, attention to wx updates and, consequently, not so much sleep! As ever our fleet flying the flags of 32 different nations approached the race variously – from all out stiff competition, to cruise-racing and even a few seemed to be sightseeing. It all comes down to skill, a competitive nature and an ability to set a good overnight course wherever you are in the world!

Our podium three from Poland, Finland and Denmark are to be congratulated on their success, particularly as only nine boats managed to finish within 10mins of the winner - it was a tricky course indeed! Well done guys!

MAITH AN FEAR bonknhoot!!!
CONGRATULATIONS calmxy!! CONGRATULATIONS hulse4!

Commentary

Well, this, the second last sprint of 2019, turned out to be a fast and furious affair, with boats needing to 'hop' from soak to hot at points to be decided at their discretion on the downwind legs, and from low and fast to high and pinched upwind, all due to the very radical polar of our vintage Mini6.5. Exciting, enervating action then, as can be gleaned from podium-placer Hulse4's memory download above, and indeed from Bimmer's timelapse production below.

Nobody managed not to make a mistake or two, so that it was those mistakes or rather the severity of them that determined the outcome, which saw bonknhoot just pipping calmxy for the podium by a mere 5 seconds, with hulse4 holding on to third under considerable pressure from the ever-consistent WINSTON4. Well done, all!!!!

Commentary
Since we first raced on Lake Superior and experienced the grand tour of its famous lighthouses (the “Lights”) in 2009, Sailonline has experienced a wide range of wind conditions here – from fickle, light and shifty to “blowing a hoolie” – but rarely do we get what might be considered Goldilocks weather but, we must have earned the favour of the wind gods of North America, because this year’s race really was blessed with good winds. From the start it was a matter of decided on snaking through the Apostles or heading out across the Lake and, as you will read in the excellent reports from our podium, below, how this decision was made by our winners!

There was fierce competition right from the start with the good winds really energising the fleet and the excellent Timelapse Video (by Bimmer) shows just how the race played out. Many congratulations to our podium three who beat the rest of our fleet, flying the flags of 33 different nations, arriving within moments of each other and only just ahead of their competition!
