The North Sea Challenge 2021

Sailonline is delighted to announce its partnership in a second event with Vestlandseilkrets this time the first ever North Sea Challenge, incorporating rally cruising, from offshore Bergen, the Marstein Lighthouse will again be our starting point, to and round the Troll A Oil Platform. The Troll A platform is one of the biggest and most impressive of oil platforms located in the North Sea and, consequently, the rounding for the real racers will be particularly spectacular!

Sailonline will be racing its Sunfast 3600 and, as ever, doing its virtual best to beat the real fleet viewable here

Sailonline’s race will open to allow practice on-course on Sunday 1 August at 1200utc. The techniques for sailing on Sailonline are the same for all races so all Vestlandseilkrets members, friends and family are invited to start racing for free on Sailonline today!

Lake Ontario 300 Challenge 2021 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard


For the second time in 2021 Sailonline returned to Lake Ontario to race in association with LOOR (Lake Ontario Offshore Racing) but this time, with Canada open for sailing it was intended to be a sail-off against the real racers in the LO300. Unfortunately, the USA decided to close its waters to the race which meant that the virtual participants could take advantage of the difficult wind conditions to use the entire Lake for their race. Despite this, the extraordinary wind conditions prevailing throughout the race meant that even the top racers, in reality and on Sailonline, were truly challenged to be competitive. No nail-biting finish of seconds between racers this time – do read the excellent reports linked above to see real and virtual racing perspectives on the event!

Many congratulations must of course go to our eventual podium three representing USA, Netherlands and Italy – very well sailed guys! To arrive at the front of a fleet of 113 boats representing 24 nations, including 11 from Canada, in conditions such as these was a tribute to endurance and skill.

SSANZ Triple Series 2021 - Race 1 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard


Ten real Young 88s and 84 virtual ones hit the line at respectively 11.20 and 11.15 local time on Saturday morning, July 10, for Race 1 of the 2021 SSANZ Triple Series on a downwind course in light to moderate airs out the Motukorea Channel, and our Australian friends Tyger and Kipper1258 showed at the front of the fleet straightaway, timing their gybe for the Motutapu shore nicely. A long and pleasant reach out to Motuora Island saw little change in the rankings, but, as always, various virtual vessels came to grief hugging the coast as they negotiated the island's rounding. Back in the Real World , the weather too was benign and the 'craic' mighty! A second long reach, now back to Motutapu proved trickier than the reach out, and some subtle changes in angle had bonknhoot coming into the battle for the virtual podium places. But nothing was certain until the line was crossed as can be seen in calmxy's excellent timelapse production, under the filmstrip below, and even then it took a little while before the server could return the precise order of finish.

And the virtual winner was? Tyger, absolutely roaring around the course in a time of 07:09:34, pipping Kipper1258 by a whole 2 seconds, and Babe, the first Young88 home on the real water, by a more serious 49-odd minutes. Terrific Tyger, but nothing like a good forecast that holds perfect for the day!

2021 Q2 Sailonline Race Committee Report

2021 Q2 SRC Review

As predicted the Q2 calendar offered many more open Ocean races although some competitors have commented on our too frequent visits to the Pacific. The Pacific Ocean just happens to be the largest open water Ocean and whilst we have a few more Pacific races to complete the six race Pacific Series we then have an Equatorial SOL Round the World race to leave the Pacific to the west.

In addition, we had a range of coastal races in Q2 including a very sad race to take home, in a Viking Longship, our great friend and staunch Danish SOL supporter Bimmer who died suddenly in early May. In his journey home from Copenhagen to Svenborg, helmed by OPS colleagues, he was escorted and followed home by 145 fellow sailors in a suitable tribute to his life and his efforts for SOL. RIP.

Now moving on to the Quarterly Series winners and podiums please continue reading here
