This summer sees the Tall Ships Races in Europe “playing” in the Baltic – this was our first race, from Halmstad in Sweden to Kotka in Finland. The Barque polar is reasonable for a full rigger but the twisty, light and pretty variable winds we found on-course meant that only those paying full attention and not being distracted by the real ships and their social media/tracker updates could focus on success. As ever, with these brilliant races, some decided to ignore the race altogether and either experiment with sailing the polar or heading off to join the real fleet at the upcoming festival in Kotka Finland! A fun event as we could all keep our eyes on-screen on the real Class A ships (our main competitors) as we were tracking them directly, and for those interested in how the rest of the real fleet were doing, the full tracker via Sailonboard.com has all classes on display over a moving wind background!

Congratulations must of course go to our podium – all three brilliant tall ships skippers brought their trusty barkies to the front of the fleet, and with nearly 40 boats finishing in the first 10 minutes and a mere 20s between 1st and 2nd this really was a hard fought finish! Very well done!

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.
