PARABÉNS Alexandria!!! GOOD ONYA Billy!! CONGRATULATIONS Patrick70119!

There is truly something magical about sailing a tall ship – at least, if you are an aficionado there is! They are, however, quite frequently by turns frustrating and perplexing! This first race from offshore the UK’s southern coast to the capital of Portugal was one of the longer tall ships races that Sailonline has taken part in so far (we can still dream of re-running the Clipper Tea Route!) and for this our clever SRC chose our beautiful Clipper. Google “Cutty Sark” and you will see just how beautiful this particular tall ship type was.

Crossing the Bay of Biscay is always interesting, never more so in a tall ship, and the curiously variable summertime conditions this year saw both feast and famine for participants. The real fleet (orange boat shapes, with names beginning with @ in our boatlist) had a very tough time indeed as they had encountered difficult head wind conditions on the way from Antwerp to the Torbay race start.

Our podium three are to be truly congratulated for their success. Three SOLers gaining podium places for the first time is absolutely awesome. Very well done guys and thank you all for writing reports for our blogpost!

Alaska RTI Sprint 2016 - RESULTS & REPORTS

Race Leaderboard

It wasn’t long ago since sprinting was something that was an occasional event but our Championships are now well established, as is our use of HIRES weather (min grid size 0.05degrees) which can really show “wind shadows”. To take best advantage of this weather format you do need to adjust the wind arrow density as high as your computer will permit – it is remarkable and, for anyone learning to sail, a really smart way to develop “wind eyes” for the surface of the water.

Please congratulate our podium on grabbing the top spots with just over a minute separating the top six arrivals. We may have had comparatively few racers - it is summer in the N Hemisphere after all - but the quality of those who sprinted this time was excellent! Bravo guys!

AGage 50 2016
The original 2013 Sailonline SOLer AGage memorial circumnavigation of Australia included a short triangular course in his homewaters off Brighton, Adelaide – the AGage 100. The 100 is not part of our current 2016 re-run of this classic tour, and it is a bit long for a sprint. So here you have the alternative – the AGage 50, three equidistant legs in Bruce Farr designed Finngulf 43s.
