Reports

Commentary
On shore, California’s drought may have been broken by some extraordinary rainfall, but offshore the slalom course of Sailonline’s Channel Island Ramble in pleasant conditions proved gently entertaining as always. Interesting winds, using the nam_awip model for increased density, led to some onshore/offshore effects that only the smartest could take advantage of. The final leg of the race, a run for a close-to-shore finish line required a skilful reading of the shift(s) and it was here that some found themselves rolled by the podium takers. Nicely done!

SSANZ Round North Island Race 2017

Once every three years, sailors have the opportunity to pit their courage, their skill and their competitive natures in a race around New Zealand’s North Island. This is not an event for the faint-hearted –racing left-about the North Island, and contending with the swirl of the Southern Oceans mixing with the Pacific and the challenge of navigating the Cook Strait, where these waters are funnelled between North and South Islands. WX systems accompany these often turbulent waters, making Sailonline’s virtual event, using wind grib forecasts from NOAA downloaded four times a day and released into the game in 10 minute pieces, a truly realistic navigation challenge.

Sailonline is delighted to be racing the Virtual RNI for the third time in association with SSANZ and looks forward to sharing in the reports and tales of how the race pans out. The race will start from Auckland, at 0100utc on 25 February 2017 and Sailonline’s virtual event will be available for preview from 21 February and registration will open for pre-race practice on 22 February.



Essential Reading
The real race has a formula by which race legs will open (after the initial one) which is explained here. PLEASE NOTE: Sailonline will be competing as closely as is virtually possible with the real yachts but will at all times give a minimum of 24hrs notice of a start time. It is intended to close each leg promptly, in harmony with the real race, but there will be some allowance here. The aim is for the overlap between legs of the virtual race to not exceed 24hrs. As always, race ranking will be your position at race close for each leg.

2017 40ft Championship - Race 2 - New Hebrides Slalom RESULTS

HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH rumskib!!!
FELICITATIONS knockando60!! FELICIDADES rafa!

Commentary
The second of six races of the Sailonline’s new-style 40ft Championship 2017 was keenly anticipated, with considerable discussion about which boat to choose for what could be a speedy event with interesting winds or, just as easily, could prove to be a bit of an upwind slog as the South Pacific can see some super-fickle conditions. The advice in the Race Description to log in and preview the forecast via the guest boat is very sound indeed, and it was clear from how registrations jumped in the 24hrs prior to race start, that many SOLers found the boat-choice aspect of this clever series really quite tricky indeed. Our winning podium all came from the Ker 40 group with the Class 40s putting in a good performance and, again, the SOTO 30s revealing the lack of versatility in design. Congratulations top three!
