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

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.
