Commentary

More than two hundred 'locked-down' IRL Bermuda voyagers doubled Sailonline's usual fleet size to over 500 virtual yachts on the line for the 2020 Virtual NBR, and in four classes. And as you will glean from the many excellent reports you may peruse above, the competition was fierce. There are 14 in total, but two are multi-authored by respectively members of the Mamaroneck Frostbite Association and the Royal Melboune Yacht Squadron. They are well worth a read. Plenty of tips and plenty of humour, from both IRL sailors and veteran SOLors. And there's much more again on the very excellent shared website of the IRL organising yacht clubs, the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht club, under the button immediately below.


The race itself was all about how to negotiate a great dearth of wind lying square across the entire racing arena, and it was Peru's rafa, who, by choosing the fastest boat in fleet and the shortest distance (two good ideas!) took line honours, with some fifty sister ships streaming in behind until Spain's GREATSKUA, in the first Italia 14.98 interrupted the Danish design's hegemony. The most intense battling was probably found in the Dehler 46s, the largest fleet, and where three SOL newcomers but experienced IRL navigators took all the podium spots, with Modonnellaw just shading it from SlideRule, both from the USA. The two-handed Sun Fast 3300s were last to come in. In light winds length matters, but the racing was just as fierce as in the other divisions, with the UK's midnightexpress in the end getting the gun. Well sailed all!
