PARABÈNS nacrr!!! GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!! CONGRATULATIONS rhoderunner!
Race Leaderboard

Sailonline wouldn’t have come into being without its two Founders. This is the annual celebration of the birthday of one of them, Jakob, which is raced in Sailonline’s homewaters – from the Revengegrundet Lighthouse to a bay close by Jakob’s home. Beer and BBQ is on offer at the finish and during the race itself, Jakob can frequently be seen darting among the islands in a speedboat with wittles and grog for all! The race itself is a lovely challenge, requiring SOLers to plot a slalom course through the many islets of the Swedish archipelago and this year, like always, the fleet split into several groups right from the start.

Our podium are to be congratulated on their prowess – only 10 boats arrived within the first 10 minutes so to be the best of these is pretty special. Well done, guys! Reports and Analyses

Santa Monica Ron Miel Regatta 2016 - RESULTS & REPORTS

click on results image to see larger

Race Leaderboard

First run in 2011, by turns the Santa Monica Ron Miel Regatta is fun, challenging and exasperating. A clever design from SOLer TheHorn, the course introduces us to the Canary Islands – that most favoured holiday destination group of islands off the coast of Africa. Run in late Spring when the regional winds can be extremely fickle, so close attention needs to be paid to weather updates. Our podium, as is so often the case, provided the fleet with a masterclass in the art of sail navigation – its no wonder that many find their real-world skills honed by their experience on SOL!

As is his custom TheHorn has provided a prize for this race of a bottle of the local speciality rum, Guajiro and, together with TheAlice, will be donating to UNICEF for each boat that crosses the finish - thank you for your generosity guys!

Finally, Many Congratulations Podium! You had some stiff competition, with 17 boats arriving within the first 10 minutes. Nicely done!

Viking Longship Race to Iceland 2016

To celebrate the commencement of Draken Harald Hårfagre's 'Expedition America', Sailonline is conducting our own virtual race in support of the venture. Our race will cover the first leg of the expedition from Haugesund, Norway to Reykjavik, Iceland.

Draken Harald Hårfagre will leave her home port in Haugesund, Norway on 24 April 2016 and sail off for a great challenge across the North Atlantic Ocean. The aim is to explore and relive one of the most mythological sea voyages – the first transatlantic crossing, and the Viking discovery of the New World more than a thousand years ago. The project will create cross-border meetings and inspire people to go beyond the horizon in a modern Viking saga. Along the traditional route, the ship will pass historical Viking settlements at Shetland, Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland. Upon reaching the American continent, Expedition America 2016 will sail on visting ports in Canada and USA.

Sailonline’s Race: Sailonline will be racing our own Viking Longship from Haugesund, Norway to Reykjavik, Iceland starting on Sunday, 24 April.

Sailonline's longship was last used in 2012 for the virtual reenactment of the Lindisfarne Raid 0f 793AD. The polar of the Sailonline Longship is based directly on the work done by the Viking Ship Museum at Roskilde on Havhingsten fra Glendalough an interpretation/replica of the "Skuldev 2" find. "Sea Stallion" has done extensive sea trials and several major cruises, and the museum has put a great collection of teaching resources online. At 100 ft, the Sailonline longship is just 14 feet shorter than Draken Harald Hårfagre and true to form, rowing is incorporated into the polar when the wind drops below 2 knots. It will be interesting to see who arrives in Reykjavik first.

The Sailonline race is open for practice and starts on 24 April at 1300utc.
