  • Carib Rum Run 2020
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club



    AHOY THERE YE ERRANT KNOTTY PATED MINNOWS!!!


    On 10 September at 1700utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver what remains of their contents to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to Bart's Bash and this year several days before International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

    All SYC Members are hereby invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

    If you are a paid-up SYC Member or if you join SYC during the Carib Rum Run you may request a change your usual Sailonline boatname just in this one race to one of your piratical preference! Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

    All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name! You may pre-request a name in advance of the race opening for practice.

    PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW before submitting a request so that you don't ask for a name already taken by someone else before you!

    Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

    Once the race opens, as always, I will be endeavouring to change boatnames as efficiently as possible!

    REMINDER: you may join SYC and, once your burgee is visible, request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

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.

More than 5000nm of almost only open water, bar three easily avoidable, well-known island groups and Fernando de Noronha and Madeira, in our much-loved Orange 125ft catamaran for your leisurely enjoyment of only wind, wind and wind and maybe some wine, chat and cheese!

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!
