CONGRATULAZIONI WINSTON_4!!! CONGRATULAZIONI ita20167!! GRATTIS sassy63!

Racing the North Sea in the summer is an interesting experience - in reality the quickly changing conditions makes for some tricky decision-making and so it was for us in the virtual race. Close attention to subtle changes in wind direction and speed really proved to be what it took. Those at the front of the fleet just seemed to read the winds perfectly. An excellent and well-deserved podium, guys!

JULY 14, 2012

Sailonline is delighted to be sailing a virtual version of the Colin Archer Memorial Race. This race has been run every two years since 1982, in honour of Colin Archer who is buried in Larvik, Norway.

Since 1982 when the race started with 7 boats the number of entrants has been increasing and by 2008, 120 boats started in various classes. SOL won’t be won’t be sailing a whaleboat or the Fram, though, but instead a Dufour 40.

The race starts in Lauwersoog, a small fishing village near the Waddenzee in Holland/The Netherlands and finishes near Larvik.

We will have to cross one of the busiest shipping lanes above the Frisian Isles so pay attention to crossing traffic near the TE buoys.

Don’t forget to take part in the parade of sails after you’ve finished paying your respects to Colin Archer.
