Sailonline is delighted to announce that it will again be buddying with Royal Akarana Yacht Club, one of Auckland's most prestigious yacht clubs, established in 1895 and known as the home of Blue Water Sailing in New Zealand, for the 2013 Round White Island Race which starts at 2100UTC on 21 November (the morning of 22 November in Auckland).

The Round White Island race is an iconic NZ offshore race and a firm favourite with SOLers as conditions can be variable and always challenging. White Island itself is not just an island but a volcano, estimated to be between 150,000 to 200,000 years old, and was named White Island by Captain Cook, because it appeared white in colour in the distance. These days visits to the island are strictly controlled to maintain its natural state so... try not to run aground there!

Many racers reported about the race, though none of them were actual complete reports. So I stitched together all "reports" I thought described some part of the race.
NOTE 1: Contributors to this report may not be aware of their contribution.
NOTE 2: If you want to read chronologically, start reading at the bottom.

Report from many racers (you probably need to zoom in a bit to be able the read it)

If anyone isn't happy with their contribution I can remove it.

The White Island Race is still missing in the weekend-ranking.
Thank you K3 - the series hadn't been selected in the race set up.

It should now update overnight tonight.

Well spotted! :-)
Joanne, I need those points :)

Thanks for fixing (and everything else)

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
