Commentary

This was Sailonline’s third race in the three BalticTall Ships Races in Europe. The course from Klaipeda to the finish well-offshore Szczecin with a leave-to-port mark some miles from Kaliningrad looked pretty straightforward. With a kindly southerly or northerly breeze it could be a reach all the way – perfect conditions for our barkies. Of course ideal conditions are rarely found on water, whether you are racing a dinghy, a catamaran or a replica square rigger and so it was that the majority of the fleet found themselves “zipper-tacking” their way to the finish! The real ships had a time limited event to ensure that they made it in time to the festival in Szczecin but our virtual Barques had to pursue the course to its finish! Some took quite circuitous routes, inspecting the wee inlets of Finnish and even Swedish coastlines, while others boldly bbq-ed on the Baltic’s southern shores!

Our podium three, most noble skippers of Class A virtual tallships, sailed supremely well, as can be seen in the fabulous timelapse of the event by SOLer kenza. CONGRATULATIONS to you on proving that when the going gets tough, the tough start winning! Good job, guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 3 - Cape Town to Melbourne
This, the third of eleven legs of the 2017/18 Sailonline World Race, takes us from Cape Town to Melbourne!
After departing Cape Town in probably light winds and passing Cape of Good Hope, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us toward Melbourne.
The southern race boundary has been set at 60°S to mark the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone, which will, hopefully, give us a clear run.
