Sinbad Strikes South 2023

Race Leaderboard


Little did Sinbad and his merry band of SOLers realise just how far south they'd have to go to find the island that the Sultan had heard about, but by the time they did, WRmirekd and three followers had carved out a big lead on the rest of the fleet by keeping well east of the rhumb line to Prince Edward Island. It had taken almost a week of almost straight line sailing getting there, and back to Africa and Port Elizabeth, it was more of the same, and very little changed, except that thankfully the weather slowly got warmer again.

And thus, two weeks after leaving Maputo, it was WRmirekd who led the fleet in, very closely followed by HappyHour and Tarassboulba, for an all European Union podium. Chapeau, hütchen, kapelusz, beste mensen!

Lisbon to Cape Town 2023 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard



"The sailboat race witnessed an impressive start with 118 competitors setting off at the gun. However, 36 boats faced a delay in starting, while 8 participants were unable to participate (DNS). As the race progressed into the second day, a clear distinction emerged among the fleet, as 15 boats chose the western route while the majority continued along the African coast.
On the third day, an other company, among them bonknhoot and Pit8008, made a bold decision to join the western route, which was followed by more participants in the subsequent days. By the seventh day, a large cluster of boats had formed into a formidable western fleet, led by Smo and Pit8008. It was not until the halfway point of the race, on the tenth day, that the remaining few who were hesitant about the shortest route finally changed their minds. This party represented by Rafa."

Over the course of three weeks at sea, the final stretch witnessed an exciting development as the wind started to intensify from behind the fleet. This led to a remarkable compression of the leader board, with 40 boats finding themselves within a mere hour of each other, and the podium contenders separated by only one minute and 16 seconds. The intense competition made for a thrilling conclusion to the race.

Auckland Fiji Race 2023

Races across the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean always fire up the imagination and the biennial race from Auckland to Fiji, organised by the Royal Akarana Yacht Club is certainly one of those that keeps our brains ablaze. However, post-pandemic, it has been difficult to rebuild interest in this truly iconic race planned for early June, and it has had to be cancelled. But it is still 'on' virtually at Sailonline.

In the past, RAYC has been very pleased to welcome "Big Red", Steinlager 2, among the entrants. Steinlager 2 is owned by the NZ Sailing Trust which aims to preserve yachts from the past to inspire future generations of New Zealand yachties, but Sailonline own a virtual version and are providing all online racers an opportunity to take her helm, to make it a truly historical competition!

To allow virtual racers ample opportunity for pre-race practice on-course, online entry will be open one week before the scheduled race start of 01:00 UTC, Saturday June 3 (Friday afternoon in New Zealand)!

California Offshore Race Week 2023

Sailonline is delighted to announce that we will again be partnering with the Encinal, St Francis, Monterey Peninsula , Santa Barbara and San Diego yacht clubs, and this year online-host two of the ocean races of their prestigious California Offshore Race Week, the CA 500 and the SoCal 300.

The CA 500 is a recent addition to the Race Week’s calendar and stands apart from the other races of the week and is contested by the very fastest and largest, in particular maxi trimarans, racing from San Francisco to San Diego, starting off the St Francis Yacht Club line on May 26 at 18:00 UTC.

The SoCal 300 is the third and final race for the California Race Week Overall title and sees the fleet race a slalom course from Santa Barbara to San Diego, starting on June 1 at 20:00 UTC.

Sailonline plans to bring on-screen the tracks of the real fleet so that we can see how competitive our virtual steeds will be against the in-real-life fleets.

Both races will open for pre-race practice early, approximately a week before their respective starts.

Current Races:

Auckland to Fiji 2023
Welcome to Auckland and, for the fifth time in Sailonline's history, an epic race to the Melanesian island of Fiji, some 1144nm away. The iconic Steinlager 2 has traditionally been our boat of choice for this event, including in 2020, the last time we raced the course – alone, unaccompanied by a real fleet as it had been #COVID19 quarantined. Alas, this year we will again be racing unaccompanied as low entry numbers has seen the real race cancelled. Hopefully, though, some of the real sailors from the Royal Akarana YC, hosts of the real event, will be joining us online to pit their skills against ours in the ever-changing forecast winds.

Cape Town to Auckland 2023
Welcome to this second RTW race 2023. It's also the June edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is slightly different from the one sailed in 2020, which then also was part of the RTW series.
This time we will race in the IMOCA 60 foil, as in all RTW races this year. That should guarantee the fun in the South Seas in a truly tough race.
