24 August 2017

Over Labor Day weekend (1-4 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 83rd running of the 238-mile Vineyard Race. This will be the eighth Virtual Vineyard race. The course can be challenging, with conditions in Long Island Sound strongly influenced by weather systems rolling up the US East Coast and the resulting strong tidal currents. For the third year, we hope that 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 2017 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 the 1 September 2017 at 1700utc.

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.

Elbetico's Fun Run TIMED Race 2017
This ever popular annual 20nm TIMEDRUN returns to our calendar slightly later in the year than usual. This year, our craft of choice is the SOTO30. Like last year’s Class40, the SOTO30 is a close-winded boat and has the additional upwind feature of a constant optimum TWA when the wind goes above Force 4. Chances are these aspects will stand to you, weaving your way up the mud flats of the upper reaches of the Huelva delta.
