  • Regarding "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP)
    Board » General Discussion
    My HATS OFF to the organizers of Golden Globe Race, starting 1 July 2018 - and to test this "no-grib-routers please"-RULE! It is GREAT!
    Since I am an bit oldfashioned, as my kids say.., I always sail only "visually", without grib-router software. It is ok. Still, in a normal race, one needs to be aware, that one sailes against machines (sol:ers tuning their grib-routers). To see how good one can get, against machines. And still be ok with that.

    (Unfortunately I might miss first leg of this race, because I will be out sailing for real.)
  • Notice time for ocean type races
    Board » General Discussion
    Hi,
    I am still AMAZED by the short notice time used for especially ocean type races. For how many days was the notice for ongoing Leg 3 Australia New Zealand race out? We now see many late starters, in this race Leg, and less than usual # of participants. What is the problem of announcing a long race e.g. 1 month ahead??? It seems that only relevant and only wanted customers are the real addicts and login-every-day sailonline users.
    Cheers,
    Mange

    Hi!
    I think it is unfortunate the the "notice of race" period is so short, for a big race like Global Challenge. I am not too much of an sailonline addict, I did not race much during last year. But during past months I did check website now and then if an ocean race was coming up. Then I was for travel for a week, busy with other things. Just to find later I was 4 days late for this start! What happened? (Look now at for exampel rumskib also.) Why not notice this type of race for a month at least? A large fleet I guess all want, no? Best regards! Mange

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2020
Progressive climate change since this 34nm race designed by NZL_Scotsman was first run in 2014 may have eased our access to these fjords but watch out for growlers.  This is a TIMEDrace, and you can expect storms and calms, so choose your start time with care. Sailing in little J-80’s, 5:01:11 hours is the previous best time to beat. God hastighed!

Maryland to Alaska 2020
Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.

Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2020


When the winter weather turns cool in southern Australia sailors head up to the warmer tropics. Every year in August sailors from all over the world make their way to The Great Barrier Reef for the big winter regattas at Hamilton Island, Airlie Beach and Magnetic Island. What better way to get there than to race to the reef. This year Sailonline is joining with the racers from RQYS to race the 343 nautical miles from Brisbane to Keppel Island in our TP52s. It might be winter downunder but all you will need is shorts and t-shirts.
