Commentary

Our second race of our virtual California Race Week was of course and had-to-be the iconic SoCal 300. This was already the 9th time we were honoured to be the online buddy of the event's organising clubs - the Encinal Yacht Club, St Francis Yacht Club, Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, Santa Barbara Yacht Club and San Diego Yacht Club. Online, exactly 99 boats showed on the line for the start off Santa Barbara at the in-confusion mis-set time of 1300UTC, when alas the real-life racers as well as a few sleepy SOLers were still fast asleep. Sorry about that!

Despite the untimely start, once through the Santa Cruz Channel and out at sea, conditions were very similar to what our Super Maxi tri's had encountered in the 500 a week earlier, as reflected on by the eventually 2nd and 3rd place finishers, Zorba777 the Greek and Satori the Canuck, in their excellent, well-illustrated reports under the brown bears above.

This time, it was our well-known Polish virtual skipper WRmirekd who was able to find that 'perfect balance between V-max and D-sailed' by 'holding out at sea (the right bit) and deciding when to gybe (the right point) for the shore and the finish off San Diego' to take the gun by just under a minute from his two nearest pursuers. Another multinational podium, well done all!

AWKR 2024


The Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta celebrates and promotes women's sailing in Australia. Comprising a week of intense racing on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, the event has grown to become Australia’s premier women’s regatta and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and over the past several years, Sailonline has been delighted to have been invited to offer all-comers (women and men) a virtual opportunity to race the Bay during AWKR week. This year, it’s an imaginary 80-miler in Sun Fast 3300s, which should prove a proper online challenge.

Nuuk RTI Sprint 2024


Welcome to Nuuk, capital of Greenland. It holds the title of warmest city in Greenland and is located at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the east shore of the Labrador Sea. The fjord is clear of ice, daylight plentiful, perhaps a tiny chill in air. This is the final sprint of Q2 and we have a new course for you. It is time to race in Greenland.
