Commentary

The third race of Sailonline’s 2019 Tall Ships Series and the first of two races in the 2019 Tall Ships Races saw our virtual Clipper ship start from the Aalborg mark at 1200utc on Saturday 6 July. The real ships, whose progress is blogged here were still in port when we started and only made their way to the start some 24hrs later. Sailonline relies on information provided and has to marry that information with our immutable rule that no change to race start will be made within 24hrs of the published race start so that SOLers the world over are able to be sure that any delayed commands (DCs) they pre-set at that point will fire correctly.

Once under way, the “washing machine” of the winds and waters of the Skagerrak truly demonstrated a variety of cycles as winds, channelling through the North Sea, swirled in and around the entrance to this tricky-to-sail body of water. For some, who were unable to be awake for the regular wx updates, their DCs were lamentably off-track, while others somehow successfully navigated themselves to the front of the pack. Racing a Tall Ship takes a lot of skill and racing a virtual Clipper is also challenging!

SOLers flying the flags of 27 nations took part in our race and our podium three, from Netherlands, Poland and Denmark are to be congratulated for arriving first in Fredriksberg! Well done, guys!
