CONGRATULATIONS sadlersailing!!! CONGRATULATIONS Rhino!! CONGRATULATIONS Gin_Lynn!

First off, what a fabulous finish for a new-to-first-place-in-an-ocean-race SOLer!! Second, just amazing to see that it has taken 9hrs for the first 20 finishers to reach the line - the rest of us are out on the water still - some for a long while yet!

From the start, we knew we were in for an interesting trip - beating into wind was a skill we would hone! From Maui there was a small split in the fleet with some immediately heading N and a few heading S but within a couple of days it was clear that a Pacific High from the NW was not going to be a factor and S was where the sport would be. A massive swoop S by many and then the decision was all about when to curve N again for the finish. It was here that the finish seems to have been decided and our podium began to take shape.

A great ocean race, in classic SOL tradition, won by three of the best! Well done guys!

Abel T. Appreciation Race 2016
In December 1642 after a particularly difficult and rough voyage, the Dutch seafarer and explorer, Abel Tasman, made landfall at a spot he named Staten Landt, believing he had arrived on the coast of Argentina. In fact, he had arrived in modern-day New Zealand. Out of love and respect for this brilliant seaman, Sailonline is retracing his route from Tasmania to New Zealand.
