North Sea Tall Ships Regatta 2016

It is summertime in the UK and in Northumberland everyone is getting ready for a brilliant Tall Ships Festival in Blyth ahead of a classic race across the North Sea to the final festival of this year’s European Tall Ships Races in Gothenburg. With the weather in N Europe being more fickle than usual for this time of year, this could be a tough race but our choice of virtual tall ship this time, our 90m Barque, will be up to it.

This fourth and final race of Sailonline’s 2016 Tall Ships Series will start at 1800 on Monday, 29 August, and will open for practice shortly. Keep your eyes on our Homepage not to miss out on registering for it!

Festival Dates: 26-29 August 2016

Festival Dates: 3-6 September 2016

Tour of Shetland TIMED Race 2016 - RESULTS & REPORTS

click on results image to see larger

Race Leaderboard

Racing any race on Sailonline can be a lot of fun, but add in a TIMED feature and make the course around Shetland then the fun is exponentially increased! Really! A TIMED race is one where you choose to make a run rather than starting as a fleet. To do well you need to pick a time when the wx and the boat polar together will give you the best outcome and, of course, have that time occur when you are available to race! This means being successful overall requires a fair amount of preparation but even if you can’t take that opportunity, you can always announce when you are starting and just maybe you will find yourself with company, so an informal matchrace can develop.

Many congratulations to the podium for their success – mid-morning on 20 August saw many start on-course and the first 28 boats all arrived within 10 minutes of the winning time. Good job guys!

Bazaruto PYOC Sprint 2016 - RESULTS & REPORTS

Congratulations longreacher!!! Congratulations Zoe!! ONNEKSI OLKOON StIngFI!
Race Leaderboard

Sprinting on Sailonline is always fun. The races are usually very sailable within a matter of hours (of course, this does depend on the ever-fickle winds!) and participation is keen. As a PYOC (Pick Your Own Course) sprint, our race off the E African coast this time was made all the more challenging by needing to decide which side of the course to favour. This might sound simple, but it really wasn’t, as you will see for yourself if you compare tracks on hmm’s Race Data Centre.

Very well sailed to our top finishers and especially our podium – with 1 second separting 1st and 2nd and 41 boats arriving in the first 10 minutes, a podium place this time was truly impressive. Bravo guys!
