CONGRATULAZIONI WINSTON_4!!! FELICIDADES rafa!! ONNEA BS1!

With interesting winds in Long Island Sound at the start, the SOL fleet immediately split into two groups. One heading for the N shore, the other for the stronger winds off the S shore. After a few hours, though, the entire fleet encountered an obstacle, the Cloud server datacenter had a power outage, but within an hour, racing resumed and, oddly enough, put the SOL fleet much more in the mix with the real Vineyard fleet! It was a tricky race overall this year, but SOL's podium rose to the challenge to grab the top spots! Bravo!

IRL Vineyard Results

RACE INFO:
The Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, welcomes Sailonline to the 78th running of their 238-mile Vineyard Race. Run at the end of the summer sailing season it 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 face a variety of weather conditions and strong tidal currents. and local knowledge proves invaluable. Sailonline will again be giving the real racers stiff competition to see who rounds the Buzzards Bay buoy first.

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - the record time for the race is held by Stamford Yacht Club's Reichel/Pugh 66, Blue Yankee, with 20 hours, 20 minutes and 15 seconds set in 2007. This year's entry list includes the 90 foot Rambler and the 80-foot Donnybrook. It should be a good year for records to fall.

Lake Winnebago NNYC Race 2016
Welcome once again to the waters of the Neenah-Nodaway YC as the club embarks on its 152nd year of organised sailing sport. This time of year, of course, those waters tend to be in the solid phase – well that’s the top few inches anyway – and in the past SOL has conveniently deleted this condition from the virtual reality shared with our hosts. This year, however, we will ignore the real world no longer and will race in DN ice yachts, a class almost as venerable as the NNYC, having first seen the light of day as the result of a competition organised by the Detroit News in 1937. Because average speeds across the ice are likely to exceed 40kn, we shall lap the lake twice. Performance Loss will NOT apply to our iceboat this time!

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.
