    The sailonline community are a fine helpfull friendly group of people from around the globe, in many cases its gone way past online friendship and turned into personal friendship and ship mates in real life races and pleasure sailing. This brings me to the reason for this post.

    What would you never have had the chance to do without sailonline.

    For me theres a long list of things, one that springs to my mind is, I would never have woke from a deep sleep with Gilles foot under my nose :-), Strange but true.....

    Anyone like to share there (would never have done's) with us ???

    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Thanks hmm for clearing that for me, only I finished Lake Winnebago race 4 am Sunday morning and the race closed Monday but SYC still does not show these results, I hate to complain but it keeps happening, I know its not that important but its the first time I have had a shot at getting high up the ranks. Sorry for being a pain.
  • SYC rank update.
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Hi, Im sure one or two of the committee are getting bored of my same question. But I still do not understand the update of the SYC ranking.A couple of people say it updates 24hours after race first finisher someone else said after race close. Please will you clarify how and when it updates. Thanks.
  • Cowes - St Malo
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    I was wondering why the Cowes - St Malo race result is not on the SYC ranking. Im sure it was during the race. And I thought it was a syc ranking race
    Thanks .

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024

Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Cape Town to Auckland 2024

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
