27 August 2016

Over Labor Day weekend (2-5 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 82nd running of the 238-mile Vineyard Race. This will be the seventh Virtual Vineyard race. The course can be challenging, with the waters in Long Island Sound held hostage by conditions in the wider Atlantic and the resulting strong tidal currents. For the second year, racers on Sailonline will be racing with the WRF wind model which gives a wx system grid as dense as 0.01 degrees! Sailonline will sail the full Vineyard course irrespective of real-world weather conditions which, on occasion, can require the real fleet to race within the Sound. Sailonline will again be using the polar of the Santa Cruz 52 and racing against 'Magic' in the real race.

Stamford Yacht Club has announced that it will be awarding a 2016 Vineyard Race Mount Gay Rum baseball cap to each of the Sailonline podium.

Sailonline’s race will be opening shortly for pre-race practice and will start with the real Vineyard fleet on 2 September 2016 at 1600utc.

Race Info

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - the record time for the race remains that set in 2007 by Stamford Yacht Club's Reichel/Pugh 66, Blue Yankee, of 20h 20m 15s.
