Vasco Da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Sailonline is delighted to be partnering with Point Yacht Club for the 2022 version of the South African classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is Africa’s oldest ocean coastal race and over the years it has been run over courses from Maputo, Mozambique to Port Elizabeth, Durban to Port Elizabeth, and from Durban to East London. Because of #COVID19 restrictions, the 2021 race was a virtual-only affair, but this year expect a real-life wild and woolly downhill sleigh-ride along South Africa’s Wild Coast so-named because conditions along the coast are invariably 'beesagtig' and hairy.

While the real fleet will be made up of several boat-types, Sailonline’s racers will be racing their Cape 31s , more than 100 of them each delivered in a high box, brand-spanking new, from the virtual Cape Town factory. It is also hoped to bring the tracks of the real yachts, including Sundance and Adios with SOLers WetWing and psadh aboard respectively, on-screen, which will not only add to the sense of competition, but also show how the navigators in the real fleet have to adjust to local conditions.

Sailonline’s race will start on Sunday, 22 May 2022 at 08:00 UTC and the race will open for practice this coming Sunday, 15 May, also at 08:00 UTC.

Commentary

A terrifc new race, all agreed, designed by our very own Zorba777, who, his name betrays, does not even hail from these parts, with nam_awip forecasts in light airs adding many surprises.

Only one thing was certain – a rhumb line up the middle of the sea was going to experience more doldrums than staying closer to either shore, and Pit8008, who kinda does hail from these parts, got the rhythm of the choices, west and east coast, most right for a fine victory by a nice few minutes from his peers in the SOL pulpit, including Satori in P3, who has graced this blog with another of his inimitably thorough reports under the Baja California button above!

Commentary

Lots of fun and drama in this running of the two handed Melbourne to Osaka virtual race, with the race splitting into a number of critical sections. Early on it was quite tricky sailing close to the coast around famous Gabo Island, and then there was the choice to sail north close to the coast or head east for stronger winds off shore. However, the most critical decision as usual was picking the best passage through the doldrums and this year the passage through Bougainville proved to be the winning strategy. From there the winds held well for the eastern fleet and Sax747 sailed brilliantly for his well-earned win, followed in by bonknhoot and Mullionman. Well sailed you three and congratulations to all competitors!

Commentary

The new race route proposed by bonknhoot turned out to be very attractive. Although it did not bring him victory, it created many interesting sailing opportunities. The fleet split into several competing groups right from the start. The further it got, the more interesting it was. Ultimately, the victory went to the brilliant Pit8008, who is in great shape lately and has faced a fierce battle with GREATSKUA and Satori. It was, however, the rafa leading the group west of Lanzarote that managed to complete the podium.

Be sure to read what GREATSKUA wrote about the race in his report. His experience in subsequent editions of this race will probably be useful. We hope everyone had a great time and congratulations to the winners.

Another new race in the SOL calendar. This time a sprint along the route of the classic regatta triangle proposed by Renegade.

One lap of 38 NM will be done with the help of Beneteau Figaro. Carefully plan the direction to start 😊 and "Let the force be with you."

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
