SSANZ Round North Island Race 2020

It doesn’t seem like three years since Sailonline last joined with with SSANZ to provide a virtual version of the challenging Round North Island Race, but three years it is. All participants, real and virtual, relish the opportunity to take part in this four-leg event. In reality, those brave enough to take part, have the opportunity to pit their courage, their skills and their competitive natures in a race where they will face the swirl of the Tasman Sea winds and currents mixing with the Pacific coupled with the formidable task of navigating the Cook Strait, where these waters funnel between New Zealand’s North and South Islands. Sailonline’s virtual event uses wind grib forecasts from NOAA downloaded four times a day and released into the game in 10 minute pieces, making this a truly realistic wind navigation competition.

This is Sailonline’s fourth time of racing the Virtual RNI and Leg 1, the relatively short hop from Auckland to Mangonui, will start at 0100utc on 22 February 2020 - Sailonline’s virtual version will be available for preview from 17 February and registration will open for pre-race practice on 18 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.

Lake Winnebago Race 2020

Race Leaderboard


What a difference the wind makes! Over the years, Sailonline has found that racing on Lake Winnebago is all about “feast or famine”. One day the winds are tearing through, making race practice tremendous fun but, come race day, we arrive to find sails barely moving in light, fickle and shifty conditions! But not always, and such was not to be the case this year – two laps of the course were easily doable and so it was that our winner crossed the finish line just 2h 19m 30s after we started! Not a course record but a fast time indeed!

Our podium three are to be congratulated on their performance. With a total of 43 boats arriving in the first 10 minutes it was a supremely competitive affair. Well done guys!

P.S. Some of you may have noticed small icons, representing Sailonline Honours Badges, alongside names in the Forums – everyone can earn these and, if this was your first time racing on Lake Winnebago, it will count as one race of the five needed to meet the requirements of the Great Lakes badge!

A3 2020- Leg 2 - Melbourne to Hobart - Results

GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!!! Gratulacje WRmirekd!! Parabéns rafa!
Race Leaderboard

The A3 - Agage's Around Australia Series was first designed in 2012 following the sudden death of Aaron Gage and our departure from Adelaide back then was set against a background of great sadness. Eight years on and SOL’ers continue to remember Aaron, almost daily, and we continue our re-running of this epic series (this time with two discards!) sharing fond memories and smiling at what a contribution Aaron made. He would be stoked!

Aaron (AGage) used to sail with 100% intensity, until he fell asleep, and so the SOL fleet is dividing itself into two - those who give 100% and reap the rewards and those who sleep. It is nice to think, then, that we are all a little like Aaron. The forecast winds for this leg weren't nearly as interesting as those the fleet encountered so many were lulled into thinking it was a fairly straightforward affair - MEL to HOB - but it was anything but! With 10 boats arriving in the first ½ hour, the competition for a top spot was intense. BRAVO podium!

Overall Ranking after Leg 2.
