  • CARIB RUM RUN 2021
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club



    AHOY THERE YE ADDLE PATED, FLAP-JAWED BARNACLES!!!

    On 11 September at 1700utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver what remains of their contents to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to Bart's Bash and this year several days before International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

    All SYC Members are hereby invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

    If you are a paid-up SYC Member or if you join SYC during the Carib Rum Run you may request a change your usual Sailonline boatname just in this one race to one of your piratical preference!

    Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

    All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name! You may pre-request a name in advance of the race opening for practice.

    PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW before submitting a request so that you don't ask for a name already taken by someone else before you!

    Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

    Once the race opens, as always, I will be endeavouring to change boatnames as efficiently as possible!

    REMINDER: you may join SYC and, once your burgee is visible, request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
