Commentary

A light moderate breeze out of the south greeted the 134 SOLers that lined up off Troy for the first leg of Sailonline's re-enactment of The Odyssey, in slightly anachronistic, but nevertheless also very ancient triremes, with polars modelled on the performance of the Hellenic Navy's replica vessel, the Olympia. An excellent report under the azure blue button above by Zorba777, the man who caused us all those virtual blisters and bumps as we mostly rowed our way around the course, after having passed the first and only mark of the course off Cape, gives a good account of what went on thereafter, and his inspiration – including several hyperlinks – behind the entire project!

Suffice to say here, that our new Trireme's polar is a tricky thing, challenging routing programs and seat-off-the pants sailors equally as to when to sail and when to row, and then when rowing, best at what optimum angle to the wind, and more generally, straight to the next cape or headland, or more subtly towards some point where you might hoist the sail again. In the end, best solver of these conundrums proved to be Poland's WRmirekd, although SimeMali ran him close, and the man himself, Zorba777, at the death nearly gave them both a fright! More fun and myths and legends on the 2tth of October. Come all!

Two Oceans Doublecross 2020
This race was first designed for Sailonline in 2010 by SOLer Jawz, and now, ten years on, we again invite you to sail our Fox 9.50s the 185nm around Cape Point and twice over the imaginary line demarcating the meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Count the number of wrecks of previous vessels both old and new that underestimated the fury of the Cape of Storms! Celebrate your survival at the Tavern of the Seas.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 2
Welcome back to the second leg of Sailonline's Virtual Odyssey which takes us from Cape Maleas at the south eastern tip of the Peloponnese across the Mediterranean to the land of the drug-dependent Lotus Eaters, probably Djerba on the Tunisian coast, where Odysseus nearly tarries too long, but gets away in time, only to end up on the southern coast of Sicily near present-day Sciacca, where a one-eyed cyclops named Polyphemus holds terrible sway and has to be dealt with after he has devoured a number of the crew. 850nm of epic adventure; enjoy!
