This thread was moved from the category Races.
AHOY ALL MATCHRACERS - the Giraglia 2010 is up and ready for practice and so the first matchrace will be held tonight, Sunday 11 April 2010.

TIME: 1800utc

START: SOL race start

ROUTE: To and round the island group, Iles de Lerins, at 43.52 / 7.05

FINISH: 43.70 / 7.32 (the bay of Saint-Laurent du var)

ALL ARE V WELCOME TO JOIN IN - OR IF YOU PREFER, JUST HEAD TO THE FINISH WHICH WILL BE THE START OF THE NEXT PRACTICE RACE!!


MATCHRACING FROM THE GUN ARE
crzycanuk (CAN)
newsartist (USA)
Perenkist (NED)
Rainbow (GBR)
robert1 (SWE)
stoertebaker (AUT)

glynnwi (GBR)started 4mins after the gun. Smo and Victorious joined in later too.


RANKING AFTER 1hr
(based on DTG to Iles de Lerins)

1. Rainbow 30.2
2. Perenkist AND canuk AND stoerte 30.6
5. glynnwi 30.9
6. news 31.2
7. Smo 31.8
8. africa 32.2
9. Vic 33.8


MATCHRACE FINISH CHANGE!!!

As the original finish is going to prove to be too far to go, the race will now finish by running ashore at 43.54 / 7.04 AFTER rounding the Iles de Lerins.

PRE-SLEEP RANKING

As time was pressing and some were already thinking of heading to sleep or on to tomorrow's start point, the final Ranking (based on DTG to the larger of the finish SLIs) was:

1. stoerte 6.3nm
2. Perenkist AND Rainbow 6.6nm
4. glynnwi 7.2nm
5. Smo 7.5nm
6. africa 8.9nm
7. robert 9.6nm
8. Vic 15.8nm
9. news 21.1nm
10. canuk - heading into the wide blue yonder!

This is a little skewed as both SLIs need to be rounded and all except Rainbow are more offshore, hence better placed to make the approach to the finish point.

With some heading off to other destinations overnight, the first finishers at the matchrace finish point were:

1. stoerte
2. Smo
3. africa
4. glynnwi (slightly off finish point)
5. Rainbow (just about to finish)

Perenkist didn't round the islands but arrived before everyone (hopefully got the bbq and grog ready!).

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
