Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals » Bornholm Race 2012

A lot of SOLers have been asking that we acknowledge one of N Germany's classic summer races - part of the July Warnemunde Woche festival and regatta - and this is the race around the island of Bornholm.

Thanks to K3 we have the race set up and now ready for preview. It is a simple race but if you see any snags with the setup please do say so!

To preview, log in as the sol boat with these credentials:

Username: sol
Password: sol

and then click here

The Start (start time (1st group) July 9th 11:05 UTC) can be seen at webcam

Several boats are equipped with tracking units. I'll post the adresses as soon as I get them.

ciao
Bernd (K3)

K3 - excellent, thank you. Do you anticipate enticing any new SOLers to join in this one?
Let's hope for some new germans.

By the way: Brainaid Ocean Racing has it's routers for the real boats in steam already.

Ciao

Ciao K3 - not sure what you mean by "in steam"?? Please would you provide a url for what you have found? Thanks!
Confusion at Warnemünde!

First the officials said Bornholm has to be rounded clockwise (!) and now the official saiiling instructions are published and the rounding is again not mandatory (see links, point 7.1, 7.5) as all the years before.

Sailing instructions:

blaetterkatalog_37

Eddie does the routing for one or more real boats. The results are not public.

The tracking of some boats will be available at:

K3 - thank you for the latest info.

Let the real race be confused! SOL shall stay with her anti-clockwise course :-D

Lake Winnebago NNYC Race 2016
Welcome once again to the waters of the Neenah-Nodaway YC as the club embarks on its 152nd year of organised sailing sport. This time of year, of course, those waters tend to be in the solid phase – well that’s the top few inches anyway – and in the past SOL has conveniently deleted this condition from the virtual reality shared with our hosts. This year, however, we will ignore the real world no longer and will race in DN ice yachts, a class almost as venerable as the NNYC, having first seen the light of day as the result of a competition organised by the Detroit News in 1937. Because average speeds across the ice are likely to exceed 40kn, we shall lap the lake twice. Performance Loss will NOT apply to our iceboat this time!

San Francisco to New York Ocean Race 2016
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Three years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from New York to San Francisco in 40 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Maxi 100. Time to return. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
