The Vineyard Race 2014 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger

Race Leaderboard

When SOLer Chaos first mentioned The Vineyard Race in 2010 and Sailonline approached the organisers for permission to race the course under the official name and at the same time, it was beyond dreaming to think that in 2014 not only would we still be associated with the prestigious Stamford Yacht Club but that we would also be exchanging information and updates via social media and our winners would receive Mount Gay Rum sponsor baseball caps from the real race! This year saw a virtual fleet of Santa Cruz 52s, representing 39 nations, taking on the Vineyard challenge and our winners are to be congratulated for their masterclass in sailing for victory. BRAVO!!

Here are their race reports:

Falmouth Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta 2014

Sailonline’s summer of tall ships sailing is coming to a close, but what a grand finale is on hand. Welcome to what will probably be the UK’s finest ever festival of tall ships, the Falmouth Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta 2014, organised by Sail Training International. Hosted in two venues, Sailonline, as the virtual race partner of Sail Training International, will race from one to the other!

Falmouth, Cornwall in the SW of the UK mainland - 28-31 August:
Greenwich, the London home of maritime Britain - 5-9 September:

The real ships will race from Falmouth to the Isle of Wight and then simply have to make the festival opening in Greenwich in early September. Sailonline will race around the south coast of Britain, from Falmouth to the entrance of the River Thames and our ship of choice this time is the Barque 90m. There will be huge interest in this race in the UK, so do please remember to share in race chat any links or images you encounter.

Fair winds to all in this, Sailonline’s fourth and final event of the Tall Ships Series 2014!

Keep an eye on the real fleet via its official race tracker:

The Vineyard Race 2014

Over Labor Day weekend (29-31 August ) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 80th running of the iconic 238-mile Vineyard Race. Run at the end of the summer sailing season this classic takes racers from the western part of Long Island Sound out to Massachusetts and back. Because of the configuration of Long Island Sound and the time of year, racers can face complex wx conditions along with strong tidal currents. Sailonline will again be giving the real racers stiff competition to see who rounds the Buzzards Bay buoy first. Sailonline will be sailing the traditional Vineyard course in Santa Cruz 52s, even if conditions require the real race to stay within the Sound.

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - the record time for the race is held by Stamford Yacht Club's Reichel/Pugh 66, Blue Yankee, with 20 hours, 20 minutes and 15 seconds set in 2007. This year has an excellent entry list so there is always hope that this record may yet be broken.

SOLer Chaos, pictured below in his Pogo, 806, is racing in the Double Handed PHRF division scheduled to be in the first start.

Race Leaderboard

The 2014 TIMED Race Championship is keeping everyone on their toes. The ability to not only discern when to start but also be available to do so is proving crucial for there to be any chance of success. Those who can’t race at the optimal time can, however, still enjoy matchracing each other and dream of future successes.

Our podium for this Asian TIMED race are to be congratulated for grabbing the top spots – as you can read from their reports below, it wasn’t simply a matter of cold calculation - well done guys and thank you for your report!

Here is what our podium have to say:
