  • SRC Candidate Advertisement
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee
    The Sailonline Race Committee has a membership position open to all SOL participants. The time involved and the skill required can be minimal - or a lot - depending on how much an individual wants to contribute. Any help would be appreciated. Further details will be provided on request. Thank you. Expressions of interest to src@sailonline.org .
  • Re: SWR Leg 6 Finish
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    SRC has amended already, without adverse comment from any of the fleet (so far as SRC is aware), the finish and start lines for Melbourne (to outside the Rip and avoiding intermediate marks in Phillip bay on the way up to and from Melbourne) and the finish and start lines for Hong Kong (to outside Hong Kong harbour, avoiding traffic separation requirements on the approach to Kong Kong, a narrow harbour entrance and more traffic separation in Hong Kong harbour). In each of the above instances an approach buoy was added by SRC/OPS to ensure a) a run of several hours to facilitate the finish and b) to ensure that the SOL software produced a finish line roughly perpendicular to the general approach of the yachts. In the case of Auckland a similar approach was taken by SRC/OPS to facilitate a finish within Auckland harbour after a clear run of several hours from Motuihe Buoy. In the case of Auckland the SOL finish line is about 435m north of the IRL line so as to enable a fixed course from the Motuihe Buoy. A similar approach to facilitating start and finish lines will be taken by SRC/OPS for the start from Auckland as the 0100 start in Auckland harbour is not DC'able (as recommended by the Board of Directors for any start that is 'inconvenient' to the majority of the SOL community). The start will be in open water NE of the harbour and thus DC'able. Of course it is quite possible that the wind could be due West or due East at some stage of the finishing period in to Auckland thus requiring tacking or gybing - as occurred to some for the Melbourne finish. But SRC can only try to facilitate a finish or start. SRC cannot control the wind direction - much as we might wish. Unless advised otherwise SRC intends to continue with this policy, save for buddied races, that emphasises that SOL races are won on the ocean not because of BBQs at tricky start or finish lines.

    An interesting decision by the International jury in the Volvo World Race on advice that was offered to Scallywag to avoid a potentially serious collision with a large reef. The advice did not constitute outside assistance.

    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    Sorry to be a bit slow in replying. Yes there will be a Lake Winnebago race. The question mark was only against the start time that has now been set at 15:00 UTC. Aiming for two laps in the hope of a decent breeze this year.

  • Calendar 2018Q1
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race Calendar
    This calendar will shortly appear on SOL's home page. The major changes from 2017 are as follows:
    3 Ocean races per quarter (was 2)
    2 Timed races per quarter (was 3) but to be for >6 hours and to be open for 21 days.
    5 Sprint races per quarter (was 4).
    40' Series now a 12 race annual Series with four designs each not to be used >3 times. 2019 will see a 12 race championship series in chosen boats as a change.
    Undefined start times to favour participating regions. Starts to be DC'able.

    2017Q4 Race calendar is published and there is no space for another race in November. A note has been made to consider this course for a Timed run in a fast boat for November 2017.

    The intention of SRC is that the balance of the RTW course will not need funny legs.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2018
Welcome to Stockholm - are you ready to race to St Petersburg? Our 431nm course from Sweden to Russia includes a couple of slight detours past Saaremaa and Hoglandet but if you keep a good lookout and avoid stealthy submarines, you should soon be docking your J130s at the home of the world renowned Hermitage Museum!

Perth-Fremantle ISAF Sprint 2018
To celebrate the running of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth, Australia, SOL organized an overnight offshore race and a Sprint: 65nm in a J-80 sportsboat along the Perth/Freemantle shoreline. We have raced the course several times since then. This year, to hurry things up, we’re going to do it in an Open 60. Proper sprinting!

SWR 17/18 Leg 6 - Hong Kong to Auckland
While others have spent the two-week stay in Hong Kong sailing up and down the Zhujiang River and around Hong Kong Island, we have been able to completely relax and spend the days preparing for Leg 6 from Hong Kong to Auckland.
We will (almost) sail the exactly same way back to where we came from and that means another meeting with the Doldrums, which hopefully this time will be kinder to us. But if that does not happen... no one said this SWR 17/18 would be easy!
