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.

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.

Bazaruto PYOC Sprint 2024

It’s been a while since we were last here, but the time has come to revisit the wonderful tropical islands of Bazaruto, Benghuerra and Magaruque, where Wikipedia tells us "at low tide, women harvest crabs, oysters and fish" (well, that’s Inhaca actually, but not a million miles away). With sea and air temperatures hovering well above the 80°F mark and wind speeds of normally less than 6kn from no predominant direction, whatever 30-odd nautical miles you elect to sail across the archipelago’s shoals and sandbanks in your Frers 33, you’ll be challenged to stay focused!

The Beagle in the Falklands

Having seen enough of the Cape Verdes, the Beagle sailed on into the west, and after a one-day stop off the mid-Atlantic isle of Fernando de Noronha anchored in the Bay of All Saints off the Brazilian mainland on the 28th of February. From there, the expedition very slowly worked its way onward and southward, surveying and exploring, to reach the Falkland Islands more than a year later. Notwithstanding that they only stayed briefly in the Falklands, in 2024 we will sail our virtual Beagle, a Tall Ship Class B, 470nm round and about the islands’ bays and straits, but mind the kelp forests that so impressed Darwin, don’t slow you down!

Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.

Race in the Whitsundays 2024

Lagoon 55 is probably not the best racing boat, but it is certainly very comfortable, which suits our race perfectly. We will start 630nm race with a leg through the Whitsunday group of Islands from its northern most extreme. Located at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays is a group of 74 Islands of varying size and is an extremely popular and beautiful tourist destination. With some of the most amazing marine sights in the world, don't pack a snorkel or scuba gear or you may never finish the race!

Kremenchuk Ice Race 2024


Of the six reservoirs along the Dnipro Cascade constructed by the Soviet Union from the late 1950s to the early 1960s, Kremenchuk, covering 2250 km2 of once fertile farmland and peaceful villages, is the largest. Well west of the struggle between EU-aspirant Ukraine and the Russian Federation, successor of the Soviet Union seeking to regain by force what it gave away in chaos, and, unlike its lowest downstream sister Kakhovka on the frontline, with its dam intact, let’s go for a 70nm sail there and dream of peace. It’s winter, so skates on and jump into your no-performance-loss DNs.

Biscoe Wharf to Casey Station 2024

It’s summer time in Antarctica, the sun won’t set and the Emperor chicks are about to hatch. Time to go yachting down there then, and why not a proper circumnavigational expedition in three legs, with Leg 1 departing from Biscoe Wharf at the British research station Rothera, destination Australia’s Casey Station! Our route takes us down to New Zealand’s Scott Base on the Ross Ice Shelf and past France’s d’Urville Station, and since these deviations off the orthodromic will put many miles (3500nm in total) on our voyage, we shall sail the quite racy Pelagic 77 of explorer and past RTW-skipper Skip Novak!

Lake Peipus Ice Race 2024


When, after converting and conquering the pagans of the Estonian marches, the Teutonic Knights in 1242 decided to march on their heretic Orthodox fellow-descendants of Viking settlers, the Varangian Rus, they met their match on the ice of Lake Peipus. With the ice too thin to support the iron-clad knights and their mounts, many were taken by the waters and many more by the archers of young Alexander Nevsky, the Prince of Novgorod. But never mind all that, 100 DN ice yachts on skates eschewing performance loss are a different matter to 1000 knights hobbled by armour on horseback, so let’s race a 95nm lap on the ice instead. Helmets on!

The Beagle in the Canaries 2024

To Darwin’s immense disappointment, the Beagle, having left Plymouth on the 27th of December 1831, spent only three days in the Canaries, all of them quarantined at anchor off Tenerife from January 6 to 9. Online this time however, we will provide him with a better opportunity to explore the archipelago’s flora and fauna by way of a circa 530nm route between a few well-spaced waypoints. The Beagle is, of course, a Class B Tall Ship, so you can expect our planned peripatetic passage to keep you at sea for a week or so.

Dyer Dhow Derby 2024


Most winter weekends, SOLer wsguerin and his friends at the Mamaroneck Frostbite Association venture forth on Long Island Sound to race Dyer Dhows, originally designed as WWII tenders. Indestructible little boats, cold weather, and serious short sharp races of 10 to 20 minutes duration combine to create great comradeship. Sailonline now invites you to experience the joys of the Dhow in winter, virtually, by way of a slightly longer 14nm race: from Mamaroneck to Execution Rocks, over to the Gong Buoy and back to Mamaroneck. And if the wind pipes up to 20kn and beyond, you'll find SOL's customized Dhow polar will plane, rather than nosedive!

Robinson Crusoe RTI 2023

In 1960, Chile bestowed a captivating transformation upon the main island of the Juan Fernández Archipelago, renaming it from "Más a Tierra" to the illustrious "Robinson Crusoe." The island brimmed with anticipation, seeking to leverage its historical connection to Alexander Selkirk's marooning (1704-1709) as the genuine inspiration for Daniel Defoe's 'The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner.'

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023

Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Adriano's Brazil Run 2023

Adriano, who sails the SOLship batatabh, together with all his Brazilian friends bids you welcome to this amazing 300nm race in SOL's Platu 25 along their country's beautiful coastline. The race starts in Guanabara Bay, mistakenly considered a river mouth by its first explorers in January 1502, resulting in the settlement on its shore being named January's River (Rio de Janeiro). After passing Rio's iconic Sugar Loaf, the course takes racers along the north coast of the beautiful Ilha Grande to a turn for home at Ilhabela (another 'beautiful island') and a finish off the famous Copacabana beach!

Shall I go there and explore this famed archipelago’s coasts? It will be one million and one half qasbah again (3000 nm, ed.).” “Why not?” said the Sultan, “A minor potentate interested in our lamp oil sands presented me a slithy ship from Santa Cruz, she measures 70 fts and she shall be my generous prize to you now, honouring your services – take her!”

Designed by the late psail, this is a 115nm course across his home waters off Lisboa, Cascais and Setubal. In previous years, we have raced the course in the AC72 and the 60ft Tri, but we will be using the MC 38 this time round. This boat is somewhat slower, making performance loss less significant, though rounding the several tight corners around marks in the sea will still pose a challenge. This is a TIMED race, so you can practice your turns before setting your fastest time!

May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023

Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020.

Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.

The iconic Steinlager 2 has traditionally been our boat of choice for this event, including in 2020, the last time we raced the course – alone, unaccompanied by a real fleet as it had been #COVID19 quarantined.

Colin Archer Memorial Race 2023

Colin Archer was born at Tollerodden in Larvik, Norway. He was a naval architect and shipbuilder known for his seaworthy pilot and rescue boats and larger sailing and polar ships. His most famous ship is the Fram, used on both Fridtjof Nansen's and Roald Amundsen's polar expeditions. In honor of Colin Archer's achievements, a peninsula of the great uninhabited island of Devon (Nunavut) was named after him - the Colin Archer Peninsula. Every two years, sailors from different countries participate in the "Colin Archer Memorial Race". They start from Lauwersoog in the Netherlands and, after covering approximately 375 nm, reach the finish line in Larvik. We will run our version of the race in Farr 38's through still chilly waters.

Tour de Belle Ile TIMED Race 2023

This 45nm TIMED race around SOLer Tarco's home island of Belle Ile was first proposed by him in 2014. This is our fifth round of racing this course and we are going to use Seacart 30s just like the last iteration in 2020, rather than our very French Mini 6.50s or Figaro's which were used in earlier iterations. It's expected to be a speedy affair; mind the performance loss, coastline and marks as you zip through this course. The winners in 2020 did it in just 2h 39min, can you do better?

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023

Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.

SSANZ Evolution Sails Round North Island Race 2023 - Leg 3


Well on our way circumnavigating New Zealand's North Island, are you ready for Leg 3? It normally is just a quick 187nm over-nighter from Cook Strait to Napier on the east coast, to be followed by a final serious 345nm fourth leg back to Auckland. However, the waters off the east coast of North Island remain debris-strewn and unsafe post Cyclone Gabrielle, so instead we will head back up the west coast, round Reinga and sail for home in one super serious 620nm leg, again short-handed in Class 40s.

You’ll be racing Class 40’s, fast boats, but chances are that by the time you get to Hobart the beer will all be drunk – by the Sydney fleet who will have set sail a day earlier. However, unlike IRL, on SOL you can race with the Sydney fleet as well, to assure beer be guaranteed!

Christmas? Summer! We are down under then, and therefore time once again for Sailonline’s Tasman Double from Sydney to Hobart on the day after Christmas and back again after New Years. This race is Leg 1 of our Double – 625nm across the often stormy waters of the Tasman Sea, as always in our SuperMaxi 100s, to give us a chance to dock in Hobart before the real-life beer is gone.

AGage 50 2022

The original 2013 Sailonline SOLer AGage memorial circumnavigation of Australia included a short triangular course in his homewaters off Brighton, Adelaide, Australia – the AGage 100. The 100 is a bit long for a sprint, but it is right that annually we remember Aaron Gage, who contributed so much to our sport. Here then, a shortened course – the AGage 50 – three equidistant legs in Bruce Farr designed Finngulf 43s.

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.

Percé to Saint Malo Transat 2022

Percé is a fishing village in the lee of its magnificent eponymous rock on the southern shores of the entrance to the St Lawrence Seaway, discovered in 1603 by Quebec's founding father Samuel de Champlain on his first voyage to the northern regions of America. In 2012, a mere 400-odd years on, Sailonline decided to return from thence, via the islands of St Pierre and Miquelon, to St Malo, the departure port of many of the French voyages of long-ago. An IRL race celebrating Jacques Cartier's much earlier voyage of 1534 exploring the Gulf of St Lawrence, first held in 1984, was further inspiration. To celebrate all things French, therefore, we now invite you to participate in this third simulation of this epic 2,485nm race, as before in very French and venerable, but now slightly modified for better light air performance Sailonline IMOCA 60s!

In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans.

The Vineyard Race 2022

For the 13th year in a row, Long Island's Stamford Yacht Club invites all SOLers to participate virtually in their iconic annual 250nm overnighter from their club line out the sound to Buzzard's Bay Light near Martha's Vineyard Island and back again, leaving Block Island to starboard. And for the 2nd year in a row, Sailonline is making their J-122 polar available to competitors, a yacht that should get you round the c 250 nm course almost as fast as the previously preferred Santa Cruz 52, if at slighter hotter downwind angles.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Transat

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.

A 588nm race in generally light Mediterranean airs, we start from Valletta on the first leg to the Strait of Messina.

Even brave Odysseus was in big trouble there. Hopefully our Carkeek40 will guide us safely through the strait.

San Francisco to New York Ocean Race 2022

Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.

Rio In-Port TIMED Race 2022

Many years ago, when the Volvo Round-The-World yachts were 70 foot long and not restricted much in any other way, SOL organized a round-the-cans prequel to that fleet's next leg out from Rio de Janeiro. Having so much enjoyed Adriano's recent Brazil Run, we have therefore set those old cans out again for you now for a TIMED Run, along the same beautiful coastline as Adriano's Run, but of only half the length, being from "there (Ilha Grande) and back", rather than "to there and back". Also we'll leave the VO70's in the shed and race X35's, which, given that the course is some 80nm in length, will mean you will be confronted by a change of forecast or two during your runs. You’ll have to take a view!

Run the Gulf - 650nm in our 90' Monohull - from Kuwait, via Bahrain and Abu Dhabi to finish offshore from Dubai.

Indestructible little boats, great comradeship and serious short sharp races of 10 to 20 minutes duration. Sailonline now invites you to experience the joys of the Dhow in winter, virtually, by way of a slightly longer 14nm race: from Mamaroneck to Execution Rocks, over to the Gong Buoy and back to Mamaroneck. And if the wind pipes up to 20kn and beyond, you'll find SOL's customized polar will plane, rather than nosedive!

For our second Seven Seas of Asia race, we invite you to Taiwan, where a charter fleet of Cape31's await you for a circa 2100nm race around a triangular course through the politically and probably meteorologically-also tricky waters of the South China Sea. Beware of lurking submarines and battleships and keep clear of firing ranges!

Shetland Winter Race 2022

A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.

Yellow Sea Race 2022

There are six seas along the eastern seaboard of mainland Asia. Six seas less travelled by the racing sailor. So, here we go. Six races up and down the Asian coast, plus one in the nearest sea to the Asian mainland of the Indonesian Archipelago, to make it a mythical seven; five to count. And in no particular order, we start with a 2200nm or so race criss-cross through the Yellow Sea in ever-elegant Italia 14.98's.

Having re-enacted the Swedish Vikings raid on Lindisfarne of 793 AD earlier this month, we must now return.

They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, so if The Fastnet is more than 10,000nm away, The Manawatāwhi is a fine and challenging alternative.

Sheltered by Cornwall to the west, Cumberland to the south and Stratford to the east, at the mouth of the Clyde river, you will find Charlottetown Harbour. Confused? No, we are not in England, not even in New England; no, we are on Prince Edward Island, so named after the fourth son of George III, and Charlottetown after his mother. Still lost? Well, Prince Edward Island, today Canada's smallest province, lies between and off New Brunswick and New Scotland (Nova Scotia), like most everywhere else along the northern North American seaboard named after somewhere where George already ruled.

Isla del Sol RTI 2021

Scanning the globe for special sprint locations, our intrepid course designer Renegade came across Isla del Sol. Interesting! But where is it? Turns out SOL's island is in the middle of the world's highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, so obviously we just had to race there. You'd think at 3812m above sea level, the place would be windy, but not so, and not particularly cold either, so enjoy this shortish 26nm RTI in "how-did-we-get-them-here?" Fox 9.50s.

Silverrudder 2021

Sailonline welcomes you to our sixth "buddy-up" with "Silver Rudder - Challenge of the Sea" around the Danish island of Funen. With shallow waters and strong currents this 125nm inshore race IRL truly is a challenge, but online too, light and variable hires WRF winds often make it a tricky affair. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our First (Seascape) 27 be a match for the real fleet's Seascape 27s? Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for SILVERRUDDER 2021:

Sprint Jezera 2021

Welcome back to the Dalmatian Archipelago, so named because the chart of its waters resembles the coat of 1 of the eponymous 101 hounds, with 1001 spots to enjoy a BBQ or seek shelter. It's summertime, so the chance of a cold katabatic north easterly Bora gusting down from the mountains catching you out, as you race your flashy First 27s around our triangular 20nm course, are reduced now, but you never know.

Nordsee zur Ostsee 2021

If you are a German sailor, you'll have learned your racing 'auf dem See', more than likely either in Bavaria on lakes like the Chiemsee, Ammersee and of course the Bodensee, or off the coasts of Schleswig-Holstein on either the Nordsee or the Ostsee, which of course are not 'Seen' at all but 'Meere' (seas!). By road or via the Kiel Canal from the ' Nordseeküste' to the 'Ostseeküste' is less than a 100km, but we will race Nordsee zur Ostsee by sea over the top of Denmark – c 450nm in J-122s.

Bimmer Memorial Race 2021

It will come as no surprise that when we recently learned of the sudden death of SOLer and Danish OPS Admin Bimmer our thoughts quickly turned to running a Viking longship race in his memory. Not that long ago, Bimmer had moved house, to Svendborg from Copenhagen, so let's follow in his steps by racing this newly designed course. After leaving Copenhagen, you have the choice of racing the c. 145nm south- or north-about the Danish island of Sjaelland to the finish in Svendborg. As Bimmer was a QtVlm aficionado, everyone is encouraged to route their longship this time!

Finland-Sweden Archipelago Raid 2021

In 2013, SOLer "JakeS" in cooperation with "Smo" created his own version of the extreme Archipelago Raid catamaran race. The real race through the beautiful Finnish and Swedish archipelago is considered a "nightmare and a great adventure", so in our fifth run of this challenge at 415 nautical miles, our determination and skills will be tested again! This year, we changed the F18 catamaran to the more comfortable Italia14.98 monohull. Take care when cornering and brake early enough.

Guadeloupe PYOC 2021

And now… SRC presents…. the PYOC of all PYOC! It is less than 3nm from the estuary of Point-a-Pitre on the south coast of Guadeloupe to the shoal bay directly north of it on the other side of the island, but, alas, a buoyed channel that might take you there is blocked midway by a bridge and a marsh, and anyway, on the SOL chart, that channel ain't there at all. So, expect to have to sail at least 62nm in mercifully relatively nippy Seacart 30s, port- or starboard-round, to win this one, and not to show ahead of boats who just came out to watch the start, until you are nearly home.

Our best departure window choice will hopefully avoid a strong northeasterly gale on our nose. You may start at any time after 1900utc on 10 March to arrive in Clarenville by 2300utc on 9 April.

Welcome again to (virtual) delivery cruising. Those arriving from Sandwich MA have refuelled and reprovisioned and are ready to join join local boats now departing for Clarenville, sailing north around Newfoundland.

Lady Barron's Dogs RTI 2021

Top right above Tasmania lies the Furneaux Group and between its main two islands of Cape Barren and Flinders we find Franklin Sound, named after intrepid navigator Sir John Franklin, KCH FRS FLS FRGS, Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) from 1837 to 1844, in between his first three and his final and fatal expedition to seek the North West Passage on the other side of the world. Lady Barron is the Group's main town and several of the islets in the Sound are known as Dogs, and so SRC stalwart Renegade invites you to come and 'walk the dogs' – 26nm in MC38s. Woof!

Norrtalje Segelsallskap, 70km NE of Stockholm was founded in 1920, and time was when the society’s season opened with a challenging offshore race from the club line off Flaten island at the mouth of the long and narrow Norrtaljeviken, out onto a triangular course around the Aland Sea, to finish at Simpnas slightly to the north on Bjorko island - some 78nm in total. A fine race that SOL, being from these parts, ran annually up until 2013. Last run in autumn 2018, we return here to race the course again in the form a TIMED RUN in our flashy Club Swan 50s.

Lake Winnebago Ice Race 2021

The first ever Sailonline Lake Winnebago January race was held in 2010, as it was decided that we should all pay a visit to SOLer BGosh who had just opened the Eureka Landings Bar and Grill in Oshkosh. Sadly we have recently learned of BGosh's death (more info here) so let's raise a glass to him before leaving the warm and toasty Neenah-Nodaway Yacht Club clubhouse to don cold-weather racing gear, and ready our DN Iceboats for two swift laps of the frozen lake. Our 102nm course does keep us clear of the fish shanties, but you'll need to stay alert in this no performance loss event.

CCA Delivery Cruise 2021 - Sandwich to Halifax

The Cruising Club of America invites you to join them on a (virtual) delivery cruise starting from Sandwich, Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod in the USA to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, some 354nm away. Once we clear the tip of Cape Cod at Race Point our rhumb line course will be 70 deg T for 225nm across the Gulf of Maine to Cape Sable NS, so the best delivery departure window for sparing the crew and gear pounding into a northeast winter gale across Browns Bank will likely be following a frontal passage with strong favorable westerly winds. You may choose one of two boats, both tailored for cruising and new to Sailonline's boathouse, so flip a coin, study their Particulars sheets and make ready! You may start at any time after 1900utc on 8 February 2021 and you must arrive in Halifax by 4 March at 2300utc.

Nisi Astypalaia Sprint 2021

Halfway between the Cyclades and Dodecanese island groups in the southern Aegean Sea lies Astypalaia. Remote and relatively unspoilt, the ferry from Pyraeus first calls into some half dozen other islands. Better to sail there, but, with only room for ten or so yachts stern-too on the main harbour pier, you may well have to anchor off in one of the island's many sheltered coves. No showers and fresh daktyla then, but no bother if you've sailed there online for example on a J-122 to compete in SOL's 30nm sprint round the entire island, taking care not to interrupt the serenity of it all, of course.

But it is not plain sailing, and after scraping through the Straits of Messina past the monsters Scylla and Charybdis, he is blown south one final time to Malta where what is left of his crew offend the sun god Helios, and all but Odysseus die at sea before he reaches Gozo, where the nymph Calypso keeps him for her pleasure for seven years, but after intervention by Zeus himself releases him.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3

Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!

Hatteras Island Sprint 2020

It is shoal and often stormy off Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, but behind the eponymous island it stands on lies Pamlico Sound, also shoal but sheltered and so wide that Giovanni da Verrazzano in 1524 mistook it for the Pacific Ocean. The Sound forms part of the Intracoastal Waterway, a popular route for smaller cruisers working their way along the US East Coast. It is well buoyed, but best to ignore these racing this interesting 25nm course, designed by SOLer Renegade, in your Sun Fast 3300 across it and around Hatteras Island.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1

According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

Maryland to Alaska 2020

Inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposed a half around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC has combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska in our magnificent 90ft Monohull.

After enjoying an impromptu timed race out of Newport round Block and Fishers Island with our friends from Sail Newport last month, we return once more to the western extremity and shores and sandy shoals of Long Island Sound for now a club-to-club sprint from Devon YC at the tip of the island, via a mark off Fishers Island YC, to a finish in front of the marina at Stonington Harbor on the Connecticut mainland. It's about 25nm, and the breeze will likely be moderate and abaft, but in our new-to-Sailonline MC38s, it shouldn't take long at all.

Newport Bermuda Race 2020


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race is scheduled for June, 2022 – however for 2020, the Newport Bermuda Race will be a virtual race only.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
Dehler 46
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:

Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and by following the links in the Newport Bermuda Race Blog, where you should register your entry also – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards SYC Rankings.

Estonian Islands Sprint 2020

Lao and Peerni are two tiny towns with a combined population of little more than 50 souls at the end of the Tostamaa peninsula on the coast of the Gulf of Riga. A ferry departs from Lao's harbour, Munalaiu, for the islands of Manilaid and Kihnu across the water, where the permanent resident count is a factor 10 higher. In winter the ferry doesn't run and you can drive across the ice to the islands instead, but in June beach tourism swells demand, so mind the commercial traffic, SOLers, as you race this 24nm circumnavigation in handsome Linjett 40s!

Migaloo Migration 2020

For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

Treacherous, tidal waters, but on SOL that daunts us not. Of course, we've raced here before, mostly Timed Runs out of Quiberon around Belle Ile, just south of the islets, and back, but this time it's a sprint from Belle Ile's capital of Port Marie round the foul fowl and back.

As an addition to the thrill we will race in the Orange 125ft. Catamaran. That should guarantee the fun in the South Seas in a truly tough race.

Percé to Saint Malo Transat 2020

Percé is a fishing village in the lee of its magnificent eponymous rock on the southern shores of the entrance to the St Lawrence Seaway, discovered in 1603 by Quebec's founding father Samuel de Champlain on his first voyage to the northern regions of America. In 2012, a mere 400-odd years on, Sailonline decided to return from thence, via the islands of St Pierre and Miquelon, to St Malo, the departure port of many of the French voyages of long-ago. An IRL race celebrating Jacques Cartier's much earlier voyage of 1534 exploring the Gulf of St Lawrence, first held in 1984, was further inspiration. To celebrate all things French, therefore, we now invite you to repeat this epic 2,485nm race, as before in those very French and by now venerable Sailonline IMOCA 60s!

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020

Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series.

Lake Victoria Sprint 2019

"I had a farm in Africa, near the shores of Lake Victoria." Denys kept a boat on a mooring at the sailing club down by Kaazi. He called her Platu, I don't know why, but she had an impressive turn of speed for a 25 footer. Some Saturdays there would be a particular happiness in sailing her with him to Entebe - 20 odd English miles in a cooling breeze, however slight it might be. Friends there would give us supper and a bed, for reality to beckon once again the next day.

Return from Lindisfarne 2019

In the year 793, a band of Vikings crossed the North Sea to raid Britain. SOL recaptured this voyage in 2012 by sailing the 465nm from Goteborg to Lindisfarne in longships. Having tarried awhile, the raiders returned to Sweden to tell their friends about the good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens. Thus. it is fitting the SOL fleet this year also returns. It should be an easier passage home!

Newport Bermuda Race 2019

Every even year, the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club organise a race from Newport to Bermuda, and next year's edition will be the 52nd running of the event. So, since 2019 is an odd year, SOL is hosting a virtual replica of the course and making her fleet of IMOCA 60s available for charter to all-comers. 635nm across some very unpredictable weather.
Since the death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson in San Francisco in 2013 and the subsequent founding of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in his memory, commemorated every year by a global day of sailing, known as Barts Bash in early September, a Sailonline race has also promoted this charity every year, and this year it is this race to Bermuda that is honoured to do so.

hmm's Delivery 2019

When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Pb³ 2019

Having last raced TuuleTallaja's magnificent PB3 course along the coast of his beautiful Estonia in 2016 in reverse, we revert to his original design, beach to beach, from Pirita in the north to Pärnu in the south, via a mark off Paralepa beach half way. PB3 or 3BP if you reverse it! As has become a tradition, we will race the course in speedy F18 catamarans. By car, skipping the diversion to Paralepa, the c 140 km should take you less than 2 hours, but by sea, thwarted by headlands and islands, you may expect it to take ten times longer to cover a similar number, not of Kms, but of nms, assuming, as always that the lure of the beach and live music will not cause you to pull your boat onto the sand and linger!

Colin Archer Memorial Race 2019

Every even year, sailors from the north east coast of The Netherlands depart in early summer for a race to Norway's Larvik, there where Colin Archer designed and built more than 200 rugged and famously seaworthy double-ended sailing yachts and several iconic ships such as the exploration vessel 'Fram' and the whaler 'Castor'. To be different, odd if you like, we are running our version of the race this year. 400nm or so in Farr 38's through still chilly waters. Fair winds!

Diaplo RTI Sprint 2019

Here's a sprint around a trio of islands NW of Corfu, where Odysseus, at the end of his tether, was washed ashore and rescued by the beautiful princess Nausikaa, daughter of King Alcinous of the Phaeacians, who thought it best to return the wandering hero to his home island Ithaca and the ever constant Penelope. Tempting though this fate may seem, shipwrecking on one of the islands of our race is unlikely to meet with similar good fortune, so go easy on the ouzo as you drive your Club Swan 50 hard across 27 nm of crystal clear Ionian Sea.

Crossing the North Atlantic in N Hemisphere Spring can be a challenging enterprise and now, in this era of increasing climate instability, traditional routes may not prove to be the best!

psail Memorial Race 2019

On Sunday, it will be seven days since Joao Malafaia, owner-driver of psail, will have left us for 'forever', to navigate the oceans blue above. By then, his SOL-craft psail will have been safely berthed in Lisboa harbour by his friends, who are bringing her home from mid-Atlantic, and many words will have added to this deed of honour. It would be impossible to remember Joao too much; so, let us add another deed by racing the first of the many new polars he drafted for our eternal enjoyment, the Americas Cup 72' catamaran, across his precisely engineered course through his home waters, once again!

Sardinia Cup 2019

Up until the end of the 1990s, offshore yacht racing was punctuated by a number of annual three-boat international team championships, one of which was The Sardinia Cup. These championships were generally a mix of inshore races and at least one challenging offshore race. That the offshore race for the Sardinia Cup used to be from Cagliari to Cannigione is doubtful in the extreme. However, one thing is certain, SOL's 2019 Sardinia Cup offshore race is challenging, eschewing as it does the relatively benign waters off the Sardinian east coast, taking our fleet of highly inappropriate Seascape 18 footers (fully-crewed, NB) the long west-way round instead, probably into the teeth of a Mistral gale fetching down the river Rhone and across the Gulf of Leon. 225nm; good luck!

Auckland to Tauranga Race 2019

Thanks to the SOL'ers nzlyachtyakka and NZL_WairuaExpress, the annual New Zealand classic race from Auckland to Tauranga has become a well-established Autumn (S Hemisphere) tradition.
This is normally a "Buddy Race" with Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club, but not this year, as the yacht club does not run this event.
So, we are left to ourselves with no IRL competition, but that should not be an obstacle to get out there and having a great run.

And in 2019, the hoped-for growth of touristic interest in the story of Alexander Selkirk who was marooned here from 1704 to 1709, and in the island’s claim to thus be the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s 'The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner' now brings SOL to this island’s shores. 24nm in Farr30's.

Isla San Lorenzo RTI 2018

SOL’s SRC (Sailonline Race Committee) has taken us to some unusual places in the past, and San Lorenzo Island off Lima’s Callao peninsula is definitely another one. Housing a naval base and a penal institution, no vessel is allowed within 300m of its shores. Also, with no sources of potable water, it is a matter of debate whether it is an island at all, and not just a large rock. So, whatever you do, don’t be tempted to BBQ; you’ll be arrested and go thirsty! Thirteen potentially unlucky miles in Farr 30s; have fun!!

Five years later we return, slightly at the wrong time of year perhaps, for a quick sprint from a start in front of the village of Brandstorp, either way around Visingso island in the middle of the lake, but PORT HAND ROUND a buoy off the Granna piers on the eastern shore and back, once again avoiding Visingso as best you can.

A fine race that SOL, being from these parts, ran annually up until 2013.

Gray Whale Autumn Migration 2018

It is autumn in the N Hemisphere and gray whales are beginning their annual southerly migration, from their feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to the warm waters off the Mexican coastline. There have always been natural challenges on this journey, with younger whales falling prey to orcas, but, sadly, mankind's pollution of our planet's oceans, especially in the form of plastic waste, has heightened the risks. Racing our superyacht this time, spare a moment's thought for how we can protect and conserve oceans and marinelife.

Nantucket Sprint 2018

Welcome to Nantucket, from whence Herman Melville’s Cap’n Ahab sailed round The Horn into the northern Pacific Ocean to hunt the gray whale - whose migrations are celebrated elsewhere in SOL’s Q4 schedule - he never to return. And whaling too, as the 19th C progressed, like Ahab disappeared from Nantucket as the harbour silted up and mainland Massachusetts whaling stations benefited from rail connections. But beach life, yachting and nostalgia has rescued the island from oblivion, so to celebrate leisure, SOL gives you the Nantucket Sprint - 12nm in J130s from east of Tuckernuck Island across the sound to a finish just inside the mouth of the harbour.

Tour de Belle Ile TIMED Race 2018

As you might guess, ‘La Belle Ile en Mer’ to give the island its full name, unlike the Ile de France which lies in the Seine, lies in the sea, in fact in the sea off the Bay of Quiberon on Britany’s south coast, home of France’s ECOLE NATIONALE DE VOILE ET DES SPORTS NAUTIQUES, where many a French champion sailor has learnt his craft. An appropriate venue then for SOLers to test their wind-hounding skills in a 45nm TIMED tour out from the mainland, around the island and home, this year in sporty Beneteau Figaro’s. A popular place though, so mind the water scooters, speedboats and other assorted recreational craft!

Sailonline’s 11th Birthday Balloon Transat

Eleven is an odd number, numerically as well as numerologically. Boastful and extravagant, adding one to the complete and perfect ten, 11/11 is also the day and month WW1 ended, so a number well worth celebrating after all. Whimsically then, in honour of SOL’s 11th birthday, your SRC gives you a re-run of 2013’s Trans-Atlantic Balloon Race. This race to be the first to ‘land’ your balloon in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher is not for the faint-hearted, nor for the serious-minded. Unusually, SOL’s balloon, polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones, will not ‘sail’ over land and will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although beyond a ‘beam reach’ it will not go. Good luck!!

Fehmarn RTI Sprint 2018

‘Fehmarn Rund’ is an ever-popular race round former West Germany’s most northerly Baltic island; so popular in fact that DSV’s Ostsee-Cup this year had the circuit in twice for its 10-race Summer programme; early in May organized by the Burger Segler Vereinigung, and more recently in August by Segler-Vereinigung Heiligenhafen. Familiar IRL to SOLers rumskib and bonknhoot amongst others, it was in fact MustangMark who first proposed a SOL sprint round the island back in 2014, appropriately enough in X35s, built not very far away in Denmark’s Haderslev. So here we go again in 2018, for a third, now virtual 32nm lap, starting and finishing on this occasion either side of the Fehmarnsundbrücke.

40' Series Championship 2018 - Galway to Dublin

Are you ready for race # 9 in our 2018 40' series?
This time we will use the "Galway to Dublin Weekender" course for our race.
As autumn storms begin to churn the N Atlantic, what could be better than racing 347nm from Galway on Ireland's west coast to Dublin on her east coast?
Last year the winner, SimeMali, did it in 29h 10m 25s in a Ker 40!
It'll be exciting to see if that time can be beaten. 😊

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2018

Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let she rip. Enjoy!

Golden Globe Race 2018 - Leg 1

Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!

SWR 2017/18 - Leg 10 - Gothenburg to The Hague

Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018

Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?

Golden Globe Race 2018 - Falmouth to Sables d'Olonne

Welcome to Sailonline’s virtual Golden Globe Race 2018 and the SITraN prologue to Les Sables d’Olonne, starting immediately after the IRL competitors’ Parade of Sail in Falmouth Harbour celebrating the 50th anniversary of the departure of the original Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, who will compete in production yachts of the size and type used in 1968 and will only use materials and equipment that was available to them then, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race this prologue and the race proper (in two legs) by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, relying solely on the SOL predictor line and dead reckoning for navigation.

Aegean Rally 2018

"The International Aegean Sailing Rally is a regatta with a long history, organized every year by the HORC (Hellenic Offshore Racing Club). It is the oldest and most splendid sailing event in Greece and is characterized as a marine Marathon", thus write its organisers, The Hellenic Offshore Racing Club, and in 2015 SOL followed the IRL yachts round for all four legs. Marathon, however, lies too far off the beaten track, so, we, at SOL, much encouraged by the great success of our ouzo-fuelled sprint of January this year, have decided to use another of the 2015 legs for sprinting. This one starts in Athens, then rounds Agios Dimitrios Kythnos for Piperi, to finish at the Temple of Poseidon on the tip of the Attica peninsula.

Strutton to Cape Hope PYOC Sprint 2018

In the south east corner of Hudson Bay you’ll find James Bay, and close in to shore in the south east of James Bay lies a group of islands – Charlton, Strutton and Cape Hope among them. Outposts of the famed Revillon Frères fur trading company until the 1920s, the islands nowadays are once more uninhabited.

Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.

SWR 2017/18 - Leg 5 - Hong Kong to Auckland

While others have spent the two-week stay in Hong Kong sailing up and down the Zhujiang River and around Hong Kong Island, we have been able to completely relax and spend the days preparing for Leg 6 from Hong Kong to Auckland.
We will (almost) sail the exactly same way back to where we came from and that means another meeting with the Doldrums, which hopefully this time will be kinder to us. But if that does not happen... no one said this SWR 17/18 would be easy!

Pico Island Sprint 2018

900nm due West of Lisbon you’ll find Portugal’s Azores Islands, where SOLers have been known to come and go, both IRL and on-line. Marking the junction of two major tectonic fault lines – the North Atlantic Ridge and the subduction zone where the African and Eurasian plates meet – it is a seismically hyper-active place, but warm and verdantly beautiful with one rain-laden depression after another rolling over its ash-fed andisol-rich hillsides. If it wasn’t for the pods of whales mooching about offshore, at sea might be the safer place to be there, but let’s go race anyway – 55nm round Pico, this year in First 47.7s.

Ouzo Sprint 2018

Ouzo is a blend of ethanol (rectified spirit) and water with mysterious hints of aniseed and other botanicals such as fennel, mastic, cardamom, coriander, cloves, and cinnamon. Same as designer gin really, but with aniseed rather than juniper as the dominant flavour. By Greek law, the ABV (alcohol by volume) has to be at least 35%. Think of the water as the sea, the alcohol as the rocks and islands of the Inner Aegean you must not founder on, and the secret flavourings as the wind to waft you from Koufonisi to Akra Sounion, and you have The Ouzo Sprint. In our spanking new Club Swan 50s you may even be round before the thought gives you a headache!

Rio In-Port TIMED Race 2018

Many years ago, when the Volvo Round-The-World yachts were 70 foot long and not restricted much in any other way, SOL organized their own little round-the-cans race outside the harbour of Rio de Janeiro. To start our 2018 series of TIMEDRUNS , we are setting those cans out again for you, and this time they will stay in the water for 20 days for all comers to try as often as they wish to set a best time. We won’t be racing a VO70 though, but the slightly more sedate X35, which, given that the course is some 80nm in length, will mean you will be confronted by a change of forecast or two during your runs. You’ll have to take a view!

PEP Sprint 2017

Eddystone Lighthouse marks a nasty patch of rocks about 10 nm SSW of the approach to Plymouth. With the prevailing winds generally out of the SW in this part of the world, chances then are this race departing from inner Plymouth harbour, is going to be a beat out to the Light, requiring inter alia the avoidance of a very substantial breakwater, followed by a run to the finish out on open water. Perhaps 18 nm as the crows flies, and therefore, even as your FinnGulf 43 flies, a quickie.

Tiree to Coll PYOC Sprint 2017

This time of year, the Midge Count is down to Level 1 on Tiree, so no worries there then. But with the days shortening rapidly and the gales processing in relentlessly, this does not make Scotland’s "isle of corn" a more pleasant place than when it disguises itself as the "Hawaii of the North" in summer, as ferry operator Caledonian McBrayne would have it. Never mind, let us use what daylight we can find to make a get-away in our Mini 6.50s, if no further than adjacent Coll, 28nm closer to mainland!

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2017

Climate change may have opened up some of the Arctic Ocean but contrariwise close in to high latitude coasts, the incidence of icebergs has in fact increased, as they calve off progressively more frequently from glaciers flowing down to the sea. To dodge’m, us SOLers simply pretend they are not there. But finding steady wind up North is a different matter. Online or IRL, no sleight of hand can help you out, and on a longish course of c 34nm in little J80s, finding the best mix of fluky inshore flatters and ice-cold gales further out to sea may prove to be a tricky business. This is a TIMED race, designed by NZL_Scotsman.
