Commentary
Sailonline was delighted to become the official virtual “buddy” for the inaugural Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race, sponsored by Lendlease and organised by Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron and what a brilliant race it was! As is now customary with RQYS races, there was a superb livestream and commentary for the start and with the real fleet brought on-screen, it was fun to observe the performance of the real yachts. Their results can be found here

SOLers flying the flags of 28 different nations took part in the race which started at 0100utc which meant that for those in Europe, unless they were dedicated enough to stay up into the early hours of the morning, they were going to have to use delay commands. The Brisbane departure is always tricky and it was clear that several racers decided to delay their start until they were awake rather than find that they had missed a mark and needing to backtrack. To do this is clearly a choice, but it is always better to start with the start of the race and if you are uncertain of your ability to set accurate DCs then simply stop your boat with a TWA=0 at point of your choosing, then when you are able to steer again, you are where you planned to be!

Our top three were clearly made of stern stuff as, all from Europe, they showed us how to race up Australia’s Gold Coast! Arriving within moments of each other, this was another brilliantly competitive event. Bravo guys!
