28 March 2018

A new buddy-up so we are delighted to announce that Sailonline.org will be partnering for the first time with the Queensland Cruising Yacht Club (QCYC), to bring the QantasLink 70th Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race 2018 to armchair navigators around the world. The virtual race starts at the same time as the real race on Good Friday, 30th March at 11:00am local time (0100 UTC) in the waters of Moreton Bay off Brisbane.

First run in 1949, the history of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race has made it one of Australia’s flagship offshore yacht races. It is an icon of Queensland and the highest profile Easter Weekend sporting event.

This year’s historic 70th edition of the 308 nautical mile ocean classic will start in Moreton Bay off Shorncliffe, a bayside suburb of Brisbane. The yachts proceed via a mark off Redcliffe, then across the bay to a mark off Tangalooma, Moreton Island, through the North West Channel out to the open ocean, around the top of Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island and through to the city of Gladstone.

Entrants will include some of the countries best racing yachts such as the Maxi 100 ‘Black Jack’ and ‘Ichi Ban’, as well as a number of veteran yachts whose names are cemented in Australian yachting history – ‘Bumblebee IV’, ‘Laurabada’, ‘Wistari’ and ‘Too Impetuous’ to name a few.


First 40 “Mayfair”

The virtual B2G18 boat will have characteristics close to those of a Beneteau First 40 so participants will be able to test their navigational skills against ‘Not A Diamond’ and ‘Mayfair’, the two First 40s entered in the real race.

Sailonline's virtual race is now open for registration to allow ample time to practise. At the time of writing, 60 yachts have entered the real race. In cooperation with the Race’s tracker provider, YB Tracking, Sailonline will be displaying IRC yachts and a selection of veterans on its virtual racing screen.

Lisboa TIMED Race 2018
For the fourth year in succession, Sailonline invite you to Lisboa and Setubal for a TIMED race. A long course designed by psail with the AC72 in mind, this year we will take out our more seaworthy 60ft Trimaran, so that performance loss minimalization, although still important, will become less critical, and finding that best (and longer!) period of favourable winds much more so.
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.
