ORCV Melbourne to Devonport "Rudder Cup" Race 2014

Sailonline is delighted to announce that it will be partnering with Ocean Racing Club of Victoria, for the running of Melbourne to Devonport “Rudder Cup” Race 2014 which starts in Melbourne, Australia, on Saturday, December 27 at 0130utc (1230 local time) to coincide with slack water time at Port Phillip Heads.

In 1907, Thomas Fleming Day, editor of the American magazine "Rudder" wrote to his friend, the Commodore of the Geelong Yacht Club, T. A. Dickson, suggesting a race across Bass Strait to Tasmania in order to promote the sport of yachting. Day struck a trophy worth 60 guineas, a fortune at the time, as a prize for the winner. More than 100 years later, yachts are still racing across Bass Strait for the honour of winning the Rudder Cup. The Rudder Cup is Australia's oldest ocean race and the 5th oldest organised ocean yacht race in the world, pre-dating the Fastnet by nearly 20 years and the Sydney to Hobart race by nearly 4 decades.

The Sailonline virtual race will open for practice on Friday, December 19 at 1330utc to enable everyone, especially newcomers, to learn the ropes in time to be competitive.

Sailonline will be using the polar of a Beneteau First 40 racing yacht as the online virtual yacht and we will be racing against the two real First 40s in the race, "Bandit" and "Wicked", both from Sandringham Yacht Club in Melbourne.

Volcano Tour TIMED Race 2014 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard

With the conclusion of this December TIMED race we come to the end of Sailonline’s first ever TIMED Race Championhsip - see these results here. December can be a tricky sailing month pretty much everywhere in the world but no more so than in among the volcanic islands off the Eastern Russian coast. Not an area particularly well known to many, it was a fascinating opportunity to sightsee (via Sailonline’s Google Earth overlay) as well as to try and pick the optimal time to run. Our podium are to be congratulated for doing exactly this. BRAVO!!
