Navigating in a race around the world is always a great joy as it was Sailonline’s original design purpose and somehow one can just breathe a sigh of relief to be on our way across the oceans again. For those unfamiliar with ocean navigation, this is the perfect opportunity to hone your skills on probably the best online virtual sailing navigation simulator … for FREE! Whether you like increasing the density of the on-screen wind arrows (see Options under the Info Tab) and using Mark I eyeball to identify your best winds, or whether you are a supremo of routing software, searching for the optimal resource for winds and smoothing them to their closest fit with the Sailonline race, this really is a game for everyone. Old, young, aspiring yotties or legends (in reality and/or virtuality) and especially if you find yourself mostly house- or desk-bound, for whatever reason, this is the time to let your imaginations, and skill, roam the oceans and race!

Sailonline’s first leg for this year’s World Race was something of a sightseeing tour of the Mediterranean, and the choice of course design was met with some perturbation by those who didn’t want to delay heading to the Atlantic (see the timelapse!) while others were happy enough to test the mettle of their OD65s in the varied conditions offered by an autumnal Med. With a total of 403 registering to race, flying the flags of 47 nations, this really was a grand introduction to the series.

Our podium, of course, are to be congratulated on their success – it has been some years since Sailonline has seen a leader streak away from the fleet in quite such an accomplished fashion, but it has been done before. Hopefully this signals a new era of even tougher competition at the front! Bravo guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, 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 towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
