Lisboa TIMED Race - RESULTS

GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!!!
CONGRATULATIONS Pit8008!! CONGRATULAZIONI Cippalippa!

Race Leaderboard

Commentary

This race was sailed in the homewaters of the late psail, whose contributions are much appreciated by this site. This particular boat's relatively high speed presented challenges in gybing and rounding corners accurately while keeping performance loss to a minimum. The race course itself included some tricky corners, including the hairpin at Setubal which ended a fair number of attempts.

Luckily for those who made mistakes in their earlier runs, there were several opportunities with 20+ knot winds that would enable competitive times to be set. The last of these opportunities turned out to have the best conditions for a fast run. Most started at around noon UTC on 27 November including second-placed Pit8008. However, a few started 2-4 hours later and got lucky with the 4.30pm Wx change, including third-placed Cippalippa and winner Kipper1258 with a time of just over 6 hours! This win also led Kipper1258 to win the Timed Race series for 2021! Congrats!

Reports

Commentary

A fresh, atypical warm wind out of the north (we're in the southern hemisphere) welcomed 88 SOLers to Cape Town for our second edition of Sebensa's Round and Round Robben Island race, which turned out be a close one, requiring precise optimum angles work both up- and downwind and a number of well-timed sharp turns at marks in the sea.

Brewman from the USA got it all spot on, to score his very first vctory on SOL, and you can read more about how he went about that in his very thorough report under the buttoned flag above. Well done and thank you, Brewman!

Gray Whale Migration 2021


click on image to see larger

Another year and while the populations of whales on our globe continue to be under threat from noise pollution, plastic pollution, illegal fishing and natural predation, there remains a good group of gray whales in the Eastern Pacific, who annually migrate the length of the American western seaboard between their summer feeding grounds around the Aleutian Islands and in the Bering Sea and their winter breeding grounds off Baja California.

First created for Sailonline in 2010, this race celebrates this remarkable life cycle of the Gray Whales by following their route. In 2010 and 2011 we raced from Mexico up to the Bering Sea in late Spring (the mother and calf route), but since then, except in 2017, we have followed the autumn swim south to their warm and shallow breeding grounds in the lagoons off Baja California, and are doing so again this year.

This year also, a special RainbowChaser prize, to honour her creation of this terrific SOL perennial and all her tireless work behind the scenes, has been donated by Leatherman Inc. to be awarded to the SOLer who best outpaces the whales. Most will, as the whales travel at a leisurely 5 knots. But who will be first and win the multi-tool?


The race opens for practice on Monday, 22 November and will start on Wednesday, 2 December at 1900utc.

The Manawatahi 2021 - RESULTS

GRATULACJE WRmirekd!!!
CONGRATULATIONS FreyjaUSA!! GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!

Race Leaderboard

Commentary

Our first ever Manawatahi was not for the faint-hearted. A long downwind leg to the island group also known as the Three Kings, atop New Zealand's North Island, was followed by an equally long beat back to Auckland. Optimum angles, when to sail'm and when not and instead sail hot towards a gybe point or free and fast towards a tack, and how far to stand off from the coast for better breeze or sail into softer wind for better angle were easy to get wrong.

An nearly all did (get it wrong) at some stage, bar WRmirekd, who as always was super-fast, but on this occasion possibly sailed his race of a lifetime, winning by a full 17 minutes ahead of FreyaUSA, who tried a number of divergent tactics to get ahead of our Polish precision pilot, or to put him off his game, but all to no avail. Mighty, Mirek!

Illas Cies Sprint 2021
It is 550nm from Dingle to Vigo, and from Pensacola to Yucatan as well, but at the mouth of Vigo's Ria we find the wonderful nature reserve of the Cies Islands, breeding ground for more than 20,000 doubly-blessed seagulls, doubly-blessed as Vigo is also home to Europe's largest fishing fleet. It rains even more in Vigo than in Dingle, and especially in winter, but let's race anyway, from Vigo's glorious old-world Real Club Nautic around the islands and up the Ria de Pontevedra to Combarro, where you may just espy through the fog bonknhoot's Damacle wintering ashore. About 32nm in magnificent Melges 40s.

Gray Whale Migration 2021
As temperatures begin to drop in the northern hemisphere, Eastern Pacific Gray Whales, who have spent the summer months in the nutrient rich feeding grounds of the Bering Sea, begin to make their way south to their winter home in the warm conditions off the coast of Mexico. We will be joining them for their 3,886nm migration in our 90ft monohull.

Return from Lindisfarne 2021
Having re-enacted the Swedish Vikings raid on Lindisfarne of 793 AD earlier this month, we must now return. The good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens tempted our predecessors to linger, but we may not stay and must cross the North Sea before the weather breaks. Fair winds, oh Njord, we pray of you, for our longships on this 465nm voyage.
