Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2021
Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April and it is therefore fitting that Sailonline's tradition of celebrating this joyous event by racing like loons around the Stockholm Archipelago is upheld. Please join us in a tricky 30nm race in beautiful Linjet33s from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to a birthday BBQ by Baggensfjärden.
Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!
Lycka till, alla!!

Valletta Sprint 2021
Welcome once again to the Mediterranean and a true SOL perennial. At 588nm in often light Mediterranean airs, to-date no boat – multi or maxi, SOL or IRL – has managed to best the US's Rambler’s time of 47:55:03 for this course set during the 2007 Middle Sea Race. This year, we offer you our Orange 125 catamaran, so the record is on!

Guadeloupe PYOC 2021
And now… SRC presents…. the PYOC of all PYOC! It is less than 3nm from the estuary of Point-a-Pitre on the south coast of Guadeloupe to the shoal bay directly north of it on the other side of the island, but, alas, a buoyed channel that might take you there is blocked midway by a bridge and a marsh, and anyway, on the SOL chart, that channel ain't there at all. So, expect to have to sail at least 62nm in mercifully relatively nippy Seacart 30s, port- or starboard-round, to win this one, and not to show ahead of boats who just came out to watch the start, until you are nearly home.
