Since Sailonline took to the virtual waters a decade ago, the Tasman Double two-header of a race from Sydney to Hobart and then, a few days later, ferrying the boats back, has become a tradition. Initially raced in a Seacart, for many years, as you can see from the above Winners List, our wonderful 90ft monohull was our mainstay, until in 2015 we changed to racing the Super Maxi 100. There are some SOLers for whom this race has become their single “must-do” SOL event – when life gets in the way of a regular participation on the platform, the siren call of SE Australia and the Bass Strait just keeps calling them back. Welcoming SOLers back for our year-end racing is a particular joy for the totally volunteer team that keeps Sailonline running, year after year.

The race this year was relatively straightforward with even the winds from the Southern Ocean that usually stream ferociously through the Bass Strait behaving themselves and boats flying the flags of 33 nations participated. Our choice of the Super Maxi 100 polar meant that once again a Sailonline record was made – setting the bench for future years. Our podium are to be congratulated for their success, when conditions are relatively stable the ability to tweak that boat-length out of one of Sailonline’s polars is a particular skill, and so we saw 14 boats arrive within the first 10 minutes. Congratulations guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
