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.

2017 40' Series Championship Q3&Q4 - Lord Howe
Welcome to the final 6th of 6 races in this season (Q3/Q4) of our 40' series!
We will use the iconic 412nm racecourse from Gosford to Lord Howe Island.
The island is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific - one of just four island groups to be inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list for the global significance of its natural beauty and heritage. Located in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand, administratively it is part of the Australian state of New South Wales.

SWR 17/18 Leg 3 - Cape Town to Melbourne
This, the third of eleven legs of the 2017/18 Sailonline World Race, takes us from Cape Town to Melbourne!
After departing Cape Town in probably light winds and passing Cape of Good Hope, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us toward Melbourne.
The southern race boundary has been set at 60°S to mark the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone, which will, hopefully, give us a clear run.
