  • Tall Ships Season 2016
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races


    For the sixth year, Sailonline is delighted to be continuing its relationship as the virtual partner of for its summer season of tall ships racing around Europe, where Sailonline's virtual races will mirror the schedules and courses of the real events as closely as possible.

    This year will see a total of four events, the three Tall Ships Races – a race from
    Antwerp in Belgium to Lisbon the capital of Portugual, a race from Lisbon on to Cadiz in Spain and a Cruise in Company from Cadiz to A Coruña also in Spain – and then, at the end of August, the North Sea Regatta – a race from Blyth on the UK’s Northumberland coast, to Gothenburg in southern Sweden.

    Sailonline’s virtual sailing experience runs hand in hand with Sail Training International's mission - the development and education of young people through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Sail Training International and Sailonline both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation.

    Navigating a tall ship is a remarkably challenging affair, especially if you are more familiar with modern yachts, and gives a real insight into the true nature of ocean exploration in days gone by, so why not start learning the basics today so you will be ready for your Tall Ships experience!

    There are in the real races, ranging from the biggest Class A Square Rigged ships of more than 40m in length, down to training yachts of 9.14m. Sailonline has developed performance polars based on published data for several tall ships, and races to compete against Class A ships.

    There is something so lovely about reading all these comments and anecdotes about our brilliant Yakka.

    Knot sure how often I will use the expression "we're not here to f*** spiders" but... it's now in the memory banks. Thanks idle

    I was just setting up the SSANZ Trio of races in the database and thinking to myself that his remarkable spirit will really live on in Auckland racing - virtual and real - it seems!

    Here is a full(er) kmz I have just made, incorporating the coords from the schematic... I will endeavour to find some names to go with the marks!

    NOTE: HIRES weather will not be available for this race, sadly, as it will be used for the Sprint starting just 2 days before this race.

AGage 50 2016
The original 2013 Sailonline SOLer AGage memorial circumnavigation of Australia included a short triangular course in his homewaters off Brighton, Adelaide – the AGage 100. The 100 is not part of our current 2016 re-run of this classic tour, and it is a bit long for a sprint. So here you have the alternative – the AGage 50, three equidistant legs in Bruce Farr designed Finngulf 43s.
