Commentary

The IRL version of this leg will go down in history as the roughest and saddest ever. John Fisher from Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag fell overboard and was never recovered. Our thoughts are with John Fisher's family, friend's, and teammates. RIP John.

With a nice dc-able race start in open water north of Auckland at 01:00 UTC (in the middle of the night for Europeans) it immediately turned into a very tough competition to round Cape Colville as fast as possible and then turn south towards the strong winds.
This race had its southern boundary at 70°S, but most of the fleet didn't even reach 60°S, as the "Westerly Stormtrack" kept us north of that.
And what a Stormtrack!
With boat speeds sometimes reaching more than 35 kts the fleet literately flew towards the epic rounding of Cape Horn, followed by the big decision of how to tackle the Falkland Islands. Left, right or in between? Later proven, "right" was the right decision, at least for "limesinferior"
As always, The Falklands claimed its victims in terms of quite a few BBQ's. Approaching Itajai we witnessed a ferocious fight for the win. "limesinferior" took victory after 16 days, 4 hours, 56 minutes, and 16 seconds at sea.
The podium finished within 10 seconds, top ten within 33 seconds and top twenty within 1 minute, 4 seconds, absolutely amazing after 7.100 NM of racing.

Sailonline’s 11th Birthday Balloon Race
Eleven is an odd number, numerically as well as numerologically. Boastful and extravagant, adding one to the complete and perfect ten, 11/11 is also the day and month WW1 ended, so a number well worth celebrating after all. Whimsically then, in honour of SOL’s 11th birthday, your SRC gives you a re-run of 2013’s Trans-Atlantic Balloon Race. This race to be the first to ‘land’ your balloon in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher is not for the faint-hearted, nor for the serious-minded. Unusually, SOL’s balloon, polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones, will not ‘sail’ over land and will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although beyond a ‘beam reach’ it will not go. Good luck!!

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
