The Vineyard Race 2015

Press Release

Over Labor Day weekend (4-7 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 81st running of the iconic 238-mile Vineyard Race and the sixth Virtual Vineyard race. Run at the end of the summer sailing season this classic race 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. For the first time, racers on Sailonline will benefit from the WRF wind model – giving a wx system grid of only 0.100 degrees! Sailonline will sail the full Vineyard course irrespective of real-world weather conditions which, on occasion, can require the real fleet to race within the Sound. Sailonline will again be using the polar of the Santa Cruz 52 and racing against 'Bombardino' and 'Magic' in the real race.

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - the record time for the race remains that set in 2007 by Stamford Yacht Club's Reichel/Pugh 66, Blue Yankee, of 20h 20m 15s.

Regata Palermo Montecarlo 2015 - RESULTS & REPORTS

CONGRATULAZIONI to ghibli!!!, to ita10267!! and to RICOTINA!
Race Leaderboard

This annual classic real race from Palermo to Monte Carlo brings to the Mediterranean a glamorous fleet of all sizes. Sailonline’s race, replicating the real course, is conventionally raced in a Class 40 and this year the real fleet saw participation of several Class 40s, not least former Global Ocean Race challenger Financial Crisis. It was fun, then to keep an eye on how the real fleet performed. More fun, however, was the way in which the Sailonline fleet split after the first mark – it was a tough choice to make and the fact that one of our podium place-takers came from both demi-fleets proves just what a close-run thing it was!

Congratulazioni to our all-Italian podium – in fact the top five were all “locals” – your performance will definitely light a fire under the rest of us next year! Bravo!

Поздравляю kenza!!! GOOD ONYA Dingo!! GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!
Race Leaderboard
Sailonline’s annual race around the entire coast of Turkey, originally designed for us in 2010 by SOLer TUR_AC50 and a group of other Turkish SOLers, has become an annual classic. The race is simply divided into three segments but in reality the conditions and the duration mean it is so much more – truly testing the stamina, determination, ability and quality of SOLers. For all who finish the course there is a real sense of achievement – and possibly a better knowledge of the history of this part of the world! It would be fabulous to see this course raced in reality.

Our podium are to be truly congratulated for their success – read the reports linked below to see how it was achieved!

Don’t forget - if this was your first time racing in the Black Sea, you are now entitled to the Sailonline Honours Badge Realm of the Czar.
