27 August 2018

This Labor Day weekend (31 August - 2 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 84th running of the 238-mile Vineyard Race. This will be the 9th 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 by the strong tidal currents up and down the sound.

For the 4th year now, we hope to be able to race online with the WRF wind model which gives a wx system grid as dense as 0.05 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, as by now has become a tradition, race the polar of the Santa Cruz 52. There is only one SC52 in this year’s real fleet and that is "Magic", who we have raced against in previous Virtual Vineyard Races.

Sailonline’s race has already opened for pre-race practice and will start with the real Vineyard fleet on the 31 August 2017 at 1700utc. Moreover, Stamford Yacht Club has announced that it will be awarding a Gill Vineyard Race 2018 cap to each of the Sailonline podium.

Race Info

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - a new record time for the race of 15h 06m 50s was set Greg Slyngstad of Seattle Yacht Club in 2017, sailing "Fujin", a Bieker 55 catamaran. Also, this year, SOLer "Chaos" will be competing in the real Vineyard in a Pogo Mini.

Sailonline's Tall Ships Asia 2020 - Race 1

Welcome to the first of two Tall Ships races in Asia from Ho Chi Minh City Bay, Vietnam, to Pulau Natuna Besar, Indonesia, some 400nm away. Our destination is in the Riau Island group which has been settled by fishermen for many centuries but now found to be a source of natural gas. At the time tall ships were sailing there, these islands were considered a safe refuge in the South China Seas.

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2020
Progressive climate change since this 34nm race designed by NZL_Scotsman was first run in 2014 may have eased our access to these fjords but watch out for growlers.  This is a TIMEDrace, and you can expect storms and calms, so choose your start time with care. Sailing in little J-80’s, 5:01:11 hours is the previous best time to beat. God hastighed!

Maryland to Alaska 2020
Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.
