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.

Current Races:

Bimini Beach Run 2016
Gone broke they may be, and capsize they can, but we love our Gunboat, SOL’s giant GB90, and especially the boom as loud as a gun when her carbon hulls begin to pierce and bounce through the seas at 25kn and more. And for proper luxury catamaran sailing, the Caribbean is the only place to go! So join us as we visit New Providence, the Biminis and the Bahamas on a fast 243nm island hopping tour of this multihull mecca.

San Francisco to New York Ocean Race 2016
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Three years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from New York to San Francisco in 40 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Maxi 100. Time to return. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
