Pantaenius Shetland Race 2019

Welcome to the Pantaenius Shetland Race 2019. Once more, Sailonline will be racing with the real fleets for both legs, from Bergen, Norway, to Lerwick, Shetland and back again. Leg 1 starts close to Marsteinen Lighthouse in outer Korsfjorden south of Bergen, on Wednesday 26 June and the return leg to Bergen will start in Lerwick Harbour on Saturday 29 June. The real entry list has a range of boats participating, but Sailonline will be sailing its First 47.7 which should be reasonably in harmony with the real fleets which is a mix of 35-45 footers.

Sailonline races to Shetland (at least) twice a year, so the island group has become a virtual home-from-home in the Northern Hemisphere. Racing in the North Sea at any time of year can be challenging and, with current weather systems being strongly affected by maritime, continental and polar flows, this year’s trans-North-Sea races will be interesting for sure! Sailonline’s race will open for registration and pre-race practice on Sunday, 23 June.

Liberty Tall Ships Regatta 2019 - Race 1 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard

Combined Fleet Images


The first #TallShips race of the year is always particularly engaging. Those who are ready for the tricky polar of whichever of our tallships we are racing, and those who are new to it are always surprised at the lack of up-wind-ability! The surprise soon fades and the traditional camps of “Love virtual Tallships” and “m’eh” soon appear… usually…. but this year didn’t see much grumbling at all! In fact, the only issue was due to the super-light winds inshore leading to the real race organisers revising the IRL (In Real Life) start to the offshore mark which saw the fleet charging past our virtual one (which started off Le Havre as planned). Sailonline has a total of four races in this year’s Tall Ships Series and the second of the two races in the The Liberty Tall Ships Regatta is already open for pre-race practice

Virtual Clipper ships flying the flags of 31 nations took part in this, our first race, from the tall ships festival in Rouen/Le Havre to a finish at the Vergoyer SW mark. The real ships then sailed/motored on to the tall ships festival in Scheveningen/Den Haag. The race itself saw nor’easterlies for a fair part of the event, requiring both the real and virtual fleets to tack their way to the finish! Set in the busiest shipping lane in the world, in reality this must have been more than a little fun!

Congratulations as always to our three Tall Ship Captains who steered their ships to our podium! Well done, guys!

Pb3 - 2019

GRATTIS sassy63!!!

Race Leaderboard


For several days ahead of the start of this tricky SOL perennial, one forecast after another predicted headwinds of a moderate variety. Plenty of time then for routers to plan and hone their strategy, which required finding the right balance between tacking frequency to get inside the bend of the steadily veering wind and performance loss per executed tack on the one hand, and on the other how far to progress into the bend and take the loss of pressure hit before tacking out again.

And it was sassy63 who read this best of all, emerging with a narrow lead from bonknhoot and rafa when the angles freed half way down the coast, which despite some interesting gybing in to the finish, he defended with aplomb. Expertly sailed, sassy63!

You can follow it all in a Kenza Time Lapse recorded and produced for us by Bimmer.
