Seoul to Seoul Sprint 2023 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard



The new year came upon us all quite quickly and so did the very first sprint for the year of 2023! Our sailors started the 2023 sprint championship with a brisk race in the bay of the well known city, Seoul, South Korea.

The weather was rather light with the direction not changing too much over the course of the race, however, this didn’t stop our sailors from having an extremely exciting race! At first glance of the course and the weather, it seemed like it would be quite a straightforward race around the course, but this was far from the reality! Many of our sailors tried all types of strategies hoping that they could take the top spot, WRmirekd outlines all of this extremely well in his report which is attached above!

The competition was extremely fierce as it always is when it comes to these sprint races, and therefore the leaderboard was changing throughout the entire race, making for some exciting racing! When our sailors went around the final rounding WRmirekd, Patrick70119 and FreyjaUSA were in the top spots and were able to keep their positions all the way to the finish line!

Congratulations to WRmirekd on a phenomenal victory and to Patrick70119 and FreyjaUSA for their well deserved podium positions!

2022 Q4 Sailonline Race Committee Report

With so much to report upon for the fourth quarter of 2022 and then preparing my report on the annual series, I shall not spend any time musing on the progress of the World but just wish you all a very Happy New Year during which SRC will attempt to provide you with a range of virtual yacht racing that hopefully will satisfy most of you most of the time.

Without further ado then, I summarise below the results for the Series racing in the 4th Quarter 2022.

Cape2Rio Race 2023 RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard



"Hope you all had a good beginning of year 2023. Here are the results from our first Ocean Race of 2023 – the iconic Cape2Rio. After a hiatus of 2 years, we again raced with the real fleet, in cooperation with South Africa's Royal Cape Yacht Club. The Sailonline had the pleasure to engage 20 new sailors to the SOL community, for this race. At the start there were 192 boats registered of which 140 started at the gun. Some late registered joined, and the total number of boats were 219, in addition to the real fleet of 16 yachts."

The first two days the fleet was quite unanimous what route to take. On the third day there rose some disagreement, north route or south. The main fleet decided, north is the route to take. The southern boundary of the race area was quite narrow, which perhaps made it less attractive. In the race chatroom there was discussion about difference in ETA suggesting 1h advantage for the north option. Further in to the race the difference in ETA grew, and at the finish line it was over 21 hours. The main fleet was quite concentrated, with 21 yachts over the line within 2 h.

Race Leaderboard


Back in October also, 100 plus two SOLers showed on the line offshore Hong Kong for a quick downwind dash to Vietnam's Nha Trang, and 76 made the time limit, with the leading boats completing the c 750 sailed nautical miles in just under two days. Good going, even for TP 52's.

It was close at the front, but Pit8008 won handsomely enough by slightly more than 3 minutes from his nearest pursuer WRmirekd with FreyjaUSA a further four minutes behind completing the impressive podium.

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
