After 15 hours of exhausting sailing, despite being in the first position, ... TWA 0 in Hullberga ... see you in next races. I don't want to repeat this experience ever again ... is a delirium race for only TeamBoats.

In my (usually humble) opinion, these kind of races are not suited for SOL, or the other way around.
SOL is still a navigational simulator.
Rounding sharp corners at boatspeeds over 20 kts in small waters is simply undoable in SOL.

However, I always enjoy the longer races. Even more if we can sail virtually against IRL fleets.

Keep up the good work, SOL is still the best sailing game in terms of strategic sailing.

Cheers and GW,
Arthur. (A dedicated F18-sailor :-) )
If you're still in control, you're not going fast enough.
and yet a comment from a Kiwi "last leg into the finish, happy to finsh this 1. 1 of the best races I have been involved in and there have been many. back to IRL stuff now ( and early sleep). What a marathon!!"

so.... it takes all sorts :-)
Race Report by JakeS

This race was just how description promise; hard one! We had a perfect wind and fast boat. Trickiest thing was to do right decision very quickly for the next course. Do I sail optimal angle a bit longer way, or do I try a shortcut? And only few sec time to make decision! And after passing one island there comes 100 more islands to pass and no time to rest or sleep. This was challenging in different way than our ocean races are.

I'm happy that we sail this, thanks to RC and Smo! Congrats to teamboats and brave solo sailors! This race also attracted a lot of discussion and opinions what is always good thing. Even there was sailors who like this I think we say goodbye to FSAR -race like it was, but we might say wellcome to Archipelago Team Race . . . We’ll see :-)

The degree of difficulty for this Race was as advertised. In the parlance of Le Tour this was an Hors catégorie or quite simply Off the Scale. Particularly vexing was the server response that consistently was in a Jump Plus 1 mode which made course corrections after a miscalculation doubly frustrating.

Special mention should go to Chaos who started 20 min late, finished 4th & did not record a single BBQ. Don't ask me how this was even possible but he should give a seminar after this race.
None so blind

Abel T Appreciation 2020
In December 1642 after a particularly difficult and rough voyage, the Dutch seafarer and explorer, Abel Tasman, made landfall at a spot he named Staten Landt, believing he had arrived on the coast of Argentina. In fact, he had arrived in modern-day New Zealand. Once again out of love and respect for this brilliant seaman, Sailonline is retracing his route from Tasmania to New Zealand.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1
According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.
