Sailonline is delighted to announce that, we will again be partnering with the prestigious San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) for the 2018 running of the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race. SDYC has been racing in the waters off San Diego for 130yrs, and in 2016, was the first USA West Coast yacht club to bring virtual sailing navigation to its members and the west coast sailing community.

Originally created in 1953 by Commodore Ken Baker in partnership with the Club de Yates de Acapulco, this race was sailed from San Diego to Acapulco; a 1430 nautical mile course that yachts of the era took up to 14 days to complete. Part of the early popularity of the Acapulco Race was to lure the returning American racers to the incredibly scenic cruising waters and ports of the emerging Mexican Rivera between Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas. In 1976, with people’s leisure time shrinking and because the latter third of the race was often sailed in lighter winds, the race finish was shortened to Las Hadas, some 300 miles to the north. At this time, our Club de Yates de Acapulco friends thought it would be great to take advantage of our presence in their waters and start a regional weeklong event of day racing combining the fleets of the Mexican Rivera with our Southern Californian participants. The Mexican Ocean Racing Circuit, or MEXORC as it has become known, has since flourished and always follows the finish of the SDYC race. It is the crown jewel of Mexican regattas and is a key enhancement to today’s Vallarta Race.

Sailonline will be going head to head with the real fleet – it is intended to bring the tracks of the real racers on-screen – and as we are racing our Santa Cruz 52 polar, there are two direct competitors in the current Entry List – Lucky Duck and Triumph. Sailonline's race is now open for pre-race practice.

Silverrudder 2018
Sailonline welcomes you to the third "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2018 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our new Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 22 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2018

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2018
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let she rip. Enjoy!
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.

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!!
