Commentary
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!

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!
