It is autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Sailonline will be racing the route of the gray whale’s magnificent autumn migration from the Bering Sea to Mexico. This time we will be racing the polar of our luxury superyacht Falkun. The race is already open for practice and will start on Friday, 2 November at 1900utc.

First created for Sailonline in 2010 this race celebrates the remarkable life cycle and migration route of the Gray Whale. In 2010, 2011 and 2017 we raced from Mexico up to the Bering Sea in late Spring (the mother and calf route), in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and again this year we follow the autumn swim down from the icy north to the warm and shallow breeding grounds in the lagoons off Baja California.

Although it is 18 months since we last raced north with the gray whales, the health of Earth’s oceans and their marine life remain under immediate threat, so as you race south down the W coast of N America to Mexico, please make some time to share knowledge and information about our oceans and what we as individuals can do to preserve and restore them. Abandoning single use plastic, getting involved with beach cleans, eating sustainable fish and seafood and , of course, supporting organisations that protect and defend marine life from man’s predations are all ways you can help.
