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.

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!!
