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.

Rio In-Port TIMED Race 2018
Many years ago, when the Volvo Round-The-World yachts were 70 foot long and not restricted much in any other way, SOL organized their own little round-the-cans race outside the harbour of Rio de Janeiro. To start our 2018 series of TIMEDRUNS , we are setting those cans out again for you, and this time they will stay in the water for 20 days for all comers to try as often as they wish to set a best time. We won’t be racing a VO70 though, but the slightly more sedate X35, which, given that the course is some 80nm in length, will mean you will be confronted by a change of forecast or two during your runs. You’ll have to take a view!
