Race Leaderboard

With the eighth running of Sailonline’s race to the Up Helly Aa fire festival in Lerwick, Scotland, starting just the day before the festival, there was a new atmosphere in the race as the fleet was very much still racing as the parade and ship-burning took place while we were watching the livestream of the event from 60˚North. There are some fabulous images findable and linked here on the event’s website which really capture a sense of just how wild, windy and wet the event was and, of course, how spirits were in no way diminished by the conditions!

Once again Sailonline would like to thank Promote Shetland for letting us share in the Up Helly Aa experience and for promoting our race in their blog.

The race started with reasonable conditions at 1100utc on 29 January, and this meant that most of the Europeans in the race were approaching the turn in the Moray Firth during the night. Many found delightful bbq spots there ahead of the run to Shetland. As ever, after passing the first Shetland mark at Gruney, the circuitous route around the islands until the approach to Lerwick was extremely difficult and so it is that our front runners, all of them, showed tremendous determination to succeed!

With a total of 204 boats registered in the race, flying the flags of 38 nations this was one of the best “global” races to Up Helly Aa in Sailonline’s history. Beating tough competition and this most-tricky of courses around Shetland to reach the podium was a tremendous achievement. Congratulations guys!

Beru to Bora Bora 2018
Welcome to the islands of the Pacific, whose original migrants arrived from Indonesia and reached as far as Hawaii and beyond.

Around Principe 2018
Between zero and two degrees north of the equator in the middle of the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of West Africa lies the Republic of Sao Tome & Principe, once upon a time Dutch settlements and until very recently a Portuguese colony. A tad remote these islands are, but this did not stop our very own MustangMark spotting an excellent opportunity for a sprint round the nation’s smaller, more northerly Principe in swirling, hires doldrums wind. 30nm in Farr30s; it could take longer than you’d think!

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!!
