Commentary

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!
