Commentary
Sailonline has raced the well established Raja Muda Selangor Race in Malaysian waters twice before and the direct run between Port Klang and Pangkor has, on both previous occasions, been a pretty straightforward affair (although the real yachts tend to race ahead of us, with the benefit of local tides/currents) and this third time again saw kind winds opening a straightforward route from start to finish. The real event this year was, unfortunately, postponed due to #COVID19 restrictions imposed in the area, so we were without our usual tracked boats competition, which brought the focus very much back on-screen.

The 2020 fleet was a truly competitive one, representing 27 different nations, and the race was hotly contested. Despite the simplicity of the course, there is one headland, Selekoh (which translates as “corner”) that always catches out a few SOLers, particularly if they don’t use the Max Zoom functionality of the UI as carefully as they might, which means that there were several overnight BBQs resulting in some exploration of the local area, which appears to be mostly agricultural!

Our 2020 podium, from Poland, Australia and France are to be congratulated on their success – with only 19s separating the three podium place takers this was a close run thing, particularly as 15 other boats, arriving within 10m of the winner, were hot on their heels! Congratulations!

Cape Town to Port Elizabeth 2020
Welcome back to Cape Town. Our new C2R74 awaits us for a second outing ahead of next month's virtual Cape Town to Rio race. The winds and currents where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet are a phenomenal test for all yachties, so this race takes us straight through that zone, teeming also with marine life, for 400 miles to Port Elizabeth. Are you ready to meet this challenge?

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3
Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!
