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.
