2 July 2012

For a second year, SOL is delighted to participate virtually in The Tall Ships Races 2012, presented by Szczecin, organised by Sail Training International. This year's races will be held in European waters.

After reading about these beautiful historic ships and seeing them in movies and on television, few of us have seen one in reality. Now, however, you have the chance to sail one and make navigational decisions in real wind conditions. That will surely bring surprises while offering a total educational experience, both for sailors of modern boats and for 'wannabe' Salts of all ages.

This experience runs parallel to Sail Training International's mission - the development and education of young people through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Sail Training International and SOL both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation.

There are four classes of Tall Ship in the real races, ranging from the biggest Class A Square Rigged ships of more than 40m in length, through to the smallest sloop. SOL this year will be sailing a Class A Tall Ship, a 90m Barque with a performance polar derived from published data.

The virtual races will follow the real race schedule.
Race 1 will put to sea from St Malo, France on 8 July and the race to Lisbon, Portugal starts offshore on 9 July.
Race 2 will leave Lisbon for Cadiz, Spain, on 22 July.
The Cruise-in-Company will leave Cadiz for A Coruna, Spain, on 29 July.
Race 3 will leave A Coruna for Dublin, Ireland, on 13 August.

Lisboa TIMED Race 2016
This will be the third time that Sailonline is hosting this race, designed by psail, and featuring our very own AC72, this year with a modified polar, to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from psail’s and bonknhoot’s original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!
