Carib Rum Run 2021 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger

GRATULACJE Wrmirekd (DavyScoundrelDunkin)!! FELICIDADES rafa!

Race Leaderboard

In 2010 Sailonline “discovered” International Talk Like a Pirate Date and having planned a route through the Caribbean from one rum distillery to another, it was decided to join the two into a fun race where SOLers who were members of SYC (or joined during the race) could change their boatnames into piratical ones and so began the tradition of racing at least one race a year using as much pirate lingo as possible! The race is always a prize one and, surprisingly for the first time ever, Sailonline’s winner has not responded to an invitation to provide a postal address to receive the 2021 prize! The SYC membership extensions that are also part of this event have, of course, been awarded.

Your author was unable to be present for much of the race but sailing Sailonline’s beautiful multi-masted superyacht, Falkun, the course raced well and there was, as is typical for all Sailonline races, strong competition for the winning spots. Our winner arrived 2m 23s ahead of the second place taker who was a fine 6m 4s ahead of the third finisher after a race that saw a typical mix of Caribbean conditions. Here’s to 2022!

Silverrudder 2021 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard



As this year's Silverrudder was quite an exhausting affair of more than 36 hours virtual sailing in much lighter forecast winds than actually prevailed across the IRL Funen circuit, which the first First 27s got round in slightly less than 21 hours, it has taken a little longer for our competitors to recover, but when they did, a very fine report indeed (under the button above) was received by your editor from the eventual winner by the smallest of margins (8 seconds), Zorba777. Read it for a tack-by-tack account of how he did it.

Well done to Zorba777 then, but also to WRmirekd, who very generously donated a special and useful prize of a Gerber Multi-tool in memory of our great friend, competitor and organizer, Bimmer, who would surely have been here, both on the virtual water and on the Svendborg quayside, had he not sailed away to the great sea in the sky earlier this year.

PAC6 Elfin Cove to Kaneohe 2021 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard


From race start it was clear that the most difficult part of the race would be passing through the doldrums and early indications were that a longer more westerly course might give the fastest doldrums passage. In fact the more direct route prevailed but not without some close racing across the fleet. Well done to the podium!!

Two insightful reports from our podium SOLers are recommended reading!

The Tall Ships 7 Races Series 2021 - RESULTS

GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!!!

2021 Tall Ships Series Leaderboard



Again this year, the COVID19 pandemic thwarted the organizational plans of Sail Training International, the main organizer of the annual 'Real-World' Tall Ships Races, whose virtual partner we are. To the great disappointment of the sailing world, in the end, all races were cancelled and the task of keeping the spirits of the crews of big sailing ships up rested on our virtual races. We raced all 7, with an average of 127 skippers in command of our virtual Clipper 240 and Barque 90m vessels. Each of the planned races turned out to be very interesting. The Chat records testify to this. Changes in forecast wind directions required fox-wits and a sixth sense. It was a very demanding series of races, virtual but in an atmosphere of friendship, fun and mutual understanding.

The adopted scoring formula for the 6 best out of 7 races held meant that until the last race from Lisbon to Cadiz it was difficult to predict places on the podium. The unsuccessful last race by the favourites bonknhoot and Sax747 caused a lot of confusion in the final classification. Three skippers scored the same number of points and were contenders for second place. In the end, bonknhoot was the winner and Sax747 and Olev took the next podiums. WRmirekd finished first on the rug behind the podium 😊. You can read about what happened at the various stages of the individual races in the wonderful report written by the winner of this year's series, bonknhoot. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all participants for great fun.
We sincerely hope that Sail Training International will be able to return to hosting these beautiful Tall Ships Races again in 2022.

Isla del Sol RTI 2021
Scanning the globe for special sprint locations, our intrepid course designer Renegade came across Isla del Sol. Interesting! But where is it? Turns out SOL's island is in the middle of the world's highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, so obviously we just had to race there. You'd think at 3812m above sea level, the place would be windy, but not so, and not particularly cold either, so enjoy this shortish 26nm RTI in "how-did-we-get-them-here?" Fox 9.50s.
