    To celebrate the commencement of Draken Harald Hårfagre's 'Expedition America', Sailonline is conducting our own virtual race in support of the venture. Our race will cover the first leg of the expedition from Haugesund, Norway to Reykjavik, Iceland.

    Draken Harald Hårfagre will leave her home port in Haugesund, Norway on 24 April 2016 and sail off for a great challenge across the North Atlantic Ocean. The aim is to explore and relive one of the most mythological sea voyages – the first transatlantic crossing, and the Viking discovery of the New World more than a thousand years ago. The project will create cross-border meetings and inspire people to go beyond the horizon in a modern Viking saga. Along the traditional route, the ship will pass historical Viking settlements at Shetland, Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland. Upon reaching the American continent, Expedition America 2016 will sail on visiting ports in Canada and USA.

    Sailonline’s Race:
    Sailonline will be racing our own Viking Longship from Haugesund, Norway to Reykjavik, Iceland starting on Sunday, 24 April.
    Sailonline's longship was last used in 2012 for the virtual reenactment of the Lindisfarne Raid 0f 798AD. The polar of the Sailonline Longship is based directly on the work done by the Viking Ship Museum at Roskilde on Havhingsten fra Glendalough - an interpretation/replica of the "Skuldev 2" find. "Sea Stallion" has done extensive sea trials and several major cruises, and the museum has put a great collection of teaching resources online. At 100 ft, the Sailonline longship is just 14 feet shorter than Draken Harald Hårfagre and true to form, rowing is incorporated into the polar when the wind drops below 2 knots. It will be interesting to see who arrives in Reykjavik first.

    MMelbourne to Osaka Yacht Race 2018


    Sailonline.org is pleased to team with the organising authority of the
    Melbourne to Osaka Double-Handed Yacht Race 2018
    to introduce a 2016 'Prelude' of the real race. With Sailonline's almost real time weather downloads from NOAA, this is intended to give prospective entrants in the real race a great opportunity to test their weather navigation skills. The 'Prelude' is timed to run at the same time of the year as the real race so weather patterns may be similar.

    The Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race is a 5,500 nautical mile 2 handed yacht race - one of the longest two handed yacht races in the world and the only one running from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. It encounters multiple weather systems and seasons as it crosses the Pacific ocean. The course takes the competitors into Bass Strait, up the east coast of Australia into the southeast tradewinds then through the doldrums on the equator. It then heads into the northeast tradewinds to the finish in the port of Osaka.

    The race, first held in 1987 to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the opening of the Port of Osaka, is held approx. every four years to celebrate the City of Melbourne and the City of Osaka sister city relationship. The 2018 event coincides with the 40th anniversary of this relationship and is a collaborative effort of three yacht clubs:

    Sandringham Yacht Club - the Melbourne Host

    Ocean Racing Club of Victoria- administering the on-water activities, and

    Osaka Hokko Yacht Club - the Osaka host.

    For the virtual M2O Prelude Sailonline will be using the polar of a Class 40 yacht which is similar to 'Wasabi', a Sayer 41 and line honours winner of the 2013 event.

    The Sailonline race opened for practice on Friday, 25 March at 0500utc (1600AEDT) to enable everyone, especially newcomers, to learn the ropes in time to be competitive.
