  • Tall Ships Race - Lisbon to Cadiz
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    As you may be aware, this Tall Ships race was interrupted by a server failure at 22.26 UTC on 6th September 2023 that lasted about 30 minutes, until it was resolved by our Tech Team.
    An e-mail request for removal of race rankings from this race was received by SRC and an internal report was prepared by SRC Chairman.
    This report discovered that four boats approaching Cape St Vincent TS mark at that time had been adversely effected by the outage such they missed the correct rounding of that mark because their delayed command (DC) fired prematurely as the DC system cannot account for server outage.
    One of the four boats affected was Go4iT (my boat) and so my report was limited to establishing the facts for SRC to debate, discuss and decide but I recused myself from that phase because I was an interested party.
    I am aware that the SRC considered a number of solutions prior to abandoning the result of the race because they concluded that it was not possible to reinstate the impacted boats in a manner that was fair both to the unaffected boats and to the affected boats.
    So the SRC concluded to schedule a resail. This resail will happen at the beginning of October 2023 as the new Calendar for Q4 is being finalised as I write.
    It was unfortunate that this outage impacted at or near the time of a rounding and this rendered any evaluation of its impact on affected boats as a very judgemental exercise and so a re-run was selected as the most equitable solution.
    Let us hope for favourable wind.
    To fully conclude this server outage, SRC did not consider the incident to have had any material impact on the Maryland to Alaska Ocean Race or the Foveaux Strait Timed Race.

    Hi NNYC MarkJohnson My OPS colleague advises me that our contact at Winnebago now runs a full winter VR series with others and so would not be interested in us. Whence we have ventured to new ice locations.

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.
