13 April 2017

This is the seventh season that Sailonline will be associated with tall ships races organised by Sail Training International. This year’s events will shortly begin with the remarkable Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta. Sailonline will begin its programme of transatlantic tall ships races in Sines (Race 2 for the real ships) racing the Sailonline Clipper ship polar. The real fleet will be making a stopover in the Canary Islands, but in a bid to remain competitive with the fastest members of the real fleet, Sailonline will be sailing by the islands and continuing on to Bermuda. From Bermuda we head to Boston, where we leave the real ships to visit many ports in N America. Finally we rejoin the real fleet for a race back to Europe from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Sailonline’s virtual sailing experience runs hand in hand with 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 Sailonline both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation.

If you have never sailed on a tall ship, then your experience of navigating one on Sailonline will genuinely bring you a sense of how challenging it was for those who explored our oceans in days gone by. This is a wonderful opportunity to dive into the world of tall ships and tall ship racing and we hope you will join us. You can start by registering now (it's free!) and learning the basics of racing on the Sailonline navsim platform so you will be ready for your Clipper.

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, down to training yachts of 9.14m. Sailonline has developed performance polars based on published data for several tall ships, and races to compete against Class A ships.
