Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Monsoon experience

As a possible 2nd race to experience different winds, following up on Bora experience, I was thinking about this course around Taiwan and some Japanese islands. This is an area where we don't go very often.

The East Asian monsoon affects about one third of the world's population. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Asian_Monsoon

In this race we go from the Penghu islands, around Taiwan towards Miyakojima and passing several other islands in Okinawa prefecture, before returning to Penghu around the North side of Taiwan. That should offer plenty of variation in monsoon winds, which are predominantly East to Northeast (attached wind stats)

Distance: 800 NM
Could be done with the new Fareast 31R polar or similar, which would make for a 4-5 days of racing.

Bora Experience 2021
Visit the Adriatic Sea for Bora Experience 2021.
Bora winds are feared by local sailors and tend to blow most strongly during the winter months, reaching record speeds above 200 km/h (125 mph). In our virtual Seascape 18 we fear not, and you are invited to race from Venice to Dubrovnik, navigating between the islands along the Croatian coast.

Lady Barron's Dogs 2021
Top right above Tasmania lies the Furneaux Group and between its main two islands of Cape Barren and Flinders we find Franklin Sound, named after intrepid navigator Sir John Franklin, KCH FRS FLS FRGS, Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) from 1837 to 1844, in between his first three and his final and fatal expedition to seek the North West Passage on the other side of the world. Lady Barron is the Group's main town and several of the islets in the Sound are known as Dogs, and so SRC stalwart Renegade invites you to come and 'walk the dogs' – 26nm in MC38s. Woof!

Aland Sea TIMED Race 2021
Norrtalje Segelsallskap, 70km NE of Stockholm was founded in 1920, and time was when the society’s season opened with a challenging offshore race from the club line off Flaten island at the mouth of the long and narrow Norrtaljeviken, out onto a triangular course around the Aland Sea, to finish at Simpnas slightly to the north on Bjorko island - some 78nm in total. A fine race that SOL, being from these parts, ran annually up until 2013. Last run in autumn 2018, we return here to race the course again in the form a TIMED RUN in our flashy Club Swan 50s.
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.

CCA Delivery Cruise 1 2021 - Sandwich MA to Halifax NS

The Cruising Club of America invites you to join them on a (virtual) delivery cruise starting from Sandwich, Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod in the USA to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, some 354nm away. Once we clear the tip of Cape Cod at Race Point our rhumb line course will be 70 deg T for 225nm across the Gulf of Maine to Cape Sable NS, so the best delivery departure window for sparing the crew and gear pounding into a northeast winter gale across Browns Bank will likely be following a frontal passage with strong favorable westerly winds. You may choose one of two boats, both tailored for cruising and new to Sailonline's boathouse, so flip a coin, study their Particulars sheets and make ready! You may start at any time after 1900utc on 8 February 2021 and you must arrive in Halifax by 4 March at 2300utc.

Haifa to Sao Vicente - 2021 ESRW - Leg 1
Welcome to bonknhoot’s alternative round the world race, there where it is wide, in six legs, following the setting sun – the ESRW Equatorial Sailonline Round the World Race; equatorial to differentiate it from more traditional antarctical circumnavigations. Expect then to cross the equator frequently, although on this 3500nm first leg from Haifa to the Cape Verdes in Ker 40s you should probably stay north of it. Being a proper ocean race, there are no intermediate waypoints, but please try to leave Tangiers to port anyway.
