  • Carib Rum Run 2018
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club



    AHOY THERE YE DAFT KILLICK-BRAINED COCKROACHES!!!


    On 15 September at 1600utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver them, if not drunk, to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to 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 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!

    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!

    NOTE: you may join SYC and request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

Sailonline’s 11th Birthday Balloon Race
Eleven is an odd number, numerically as well as numerologically. Boastful and extravagant, adding one to the complete and perfect ten, 11/11 is also the day and month WW1 ended, so a number well worth celebrating after all. Whimsically then, in honour of SOL’s 11th birthday, your SRC gives you a re-run of 2013’s Trans-Atlantic Balloon Race. This race to be the first to ‘land’ your balloon in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher is not for the faint-hearted, nor for the serious-minded. Unusually, SOL’s balloon, polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones, will not ‘sail’ over land and will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although beyond a ‘beam reach’ it will not go. Good luck!!

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
