The Tall Ships Races - Race 1 - Sunderland to Esbjerg - RESULTS

GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!!!

Race Leaderboard

16 July 2018


This was the third of five races in this year’s Tall Ships Series and the first of the two races in the Tall Ships Races 2018 where Sailonline partners with Sail Training International.

Sailonline’s 90m Barque polar is a classic, making our almost-direct-to-Esbjerg-from-Sunderland course somewhat challenging. With just a couple of waypoints to avoid the Dogger Bank to add interest, the challenge was to play with the winds offered by the North Sea this time and do our best. The real fleet had its own adventures which you can all read about here in the excellent Sailonboard Blogs .

As ever, some of us did better than others, and it is for this reason our admiration must go to our excellent Podium – first and second separated by 2 seconds, second and third by 21 seconds! Were Tall Ships ever timed so precisely! Congratulations guys!

SSANZ (LiveSailDie) made a video:

The SSANZ Two-handed Triple Series is one of Sailonline’s all-time favourites. The combination of three middle-distance inshore races with the waters of the Hauraki Gulf and the competition from the real racers of the Young 88 Association really makes this a truly must-do series! For Europeans it is a big ask, as the races all start very late in the European day, so a reliance on DCs (or a preparedness to forego sleep) are the only choices. For the rest of the world, this has the potential to be really challenging and so it is unsurprising to find our podium three coming from Brazil, Australia and USA.

The course for this SSANZ60 was a little different this year and the wind gods were certainly smiling on everyone taking part as the winds permitted a reasonable broad reach to the first turn at the Tiri Navy Buoy. From here to Gannet Rock, while definitely DC-able (risking an overnight wind update!) the optimal course included some judicious manoeuvring for best VMG. A few Europeans, by this point, were either beached overnight or sailing relatively randomly, but the competition for the top spots was still pretty full-on with nearly 9 boats arriving in the first 10 minutes. The real fleet was tracked in real-time and this gave a sense of just where we and our virtual Young 88s were in the field. The SSANZ Results show that the best corrected time for the Young 88 start, S/Y Skitzo was 6h 53m 29s while Alexandria arrived at 8h 10m 1s. This time it would see that the local tides/currents cut in favour of our IRL opposition!

Congratulations to our podium for a great start to this year’s series!

SSANZ Safety @ Sea Triple Series 2018

Auckland, on New Zealand’s North Island, is really one of Sailonline’s homes-from-home, as it is from here that, in addition to racing around the local area, we also head off on many a Pacific adventure. For the seventh year running, we are delighted to be here again as the virtual partner of the Short-handed Sailing Association of New Zealand (SSANZ) for the SSANZ Safety @ Sea Triple Series 2018. This is an annual three-race series – currently the biggest Two Handed Series in New Zealand – raced in the waters of the Hauraki Gulf.

In 2014 Sailonline began an association with the Young 88 Owners Association and once more will be racing all three events this year with our Young88 Polar .

If any SOLers are taking part - do let us know and we’ll feature you here on the blogpost!

The three races will be raced on Sailonline on the following dates (UTC):

Race 1 Safety @ Sea 60 --- 6 July
Race 2 Safety @ Sea 100 --- 3 August
Race 3 Safety @ Sea 50 --- 5 September

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
Fair winds and good luck!!
