Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » 2018 SMPF SCHEME


As you all know the SMPF scheme (SYC Membership Pay Forward) has been a success in 2017.

At the end of some 12 races in 2017 ( one each month) one annual membership to the Sailonline Yacht Club was made available by a member of the SOL Community to the best finishing NON member in each race. The 12 winners are now happy members of SYC and compete for one year in all rankings.

The 2017 sponsors did either make their Sponsorship publicly known, or acted anonymously under the flag of the Sailonline Yacht Club.

The SMPF scheme will continue in 2018, and the Board is now looking for Sponsors throughout the Club Community. The number of slots available is extremely limited, as again in 2018 ONLY ONE SMPF race per month will be nominated and sponsored.

By responding promptly to this invitation you will secure yourself a slot in the 2018 Sponsorship list , and if the number of available slots will be completed prior to your proposed sponsorship , you can rest assured that you will be given priority list for 2019.

All you need to do at this time is to write to: coord@sailonline.org , and confirm your willingness to support the SMPF scheme in 2018. If you want you can also indicate which race you would like to sponsor . All possible efforts to satisfy you desire will be made.

Some important information before you decide:

1)– Your participation to the scheme, should you want to remain anonymous, will be treated in fully confidential mode by the Coordinator and the Sailonline Nav Sim AB President, who will be the only two persons aware of your position in the scheme.

2)- This is by no means a solicitation to invest USD 35,00 into our platform, and you should not in any way feel obliged to adhere to the scheme.

3)- The prerequisite of not being a SYC member for the past twelve months to become eligible for the SMPF scheme , in case of finishing first of non-members, has been confirmed for the 2018 scheme.

We look forward to hearing from you and to a well supported 2018 SMPF scheme!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
