Commentary
Navigating in a race around the world is always a great joy as it was Sailonline’s original design purpose and somehow one can just breathe a sigh of relief to be on our way across the oceans again. For those unfamiliar with ocean navigation, this is the perfect opportunity to hone your skills on probably the best online virtual sailing navigation simulator … for FREE! Whether you like increasing the density of the on-screen wind arrows (see Options under the Info Tab) and using Mark I eyeball to identify your best winds, or whether you are a supremo of routing software, searching for the optimal resource for winds and smoothing them to their closest fit with the Sailonline race, this really is a game for everyone. Old, young, aspiring yotties or legends (in reality and/or virtuality) and especially if you find yourself mostly house- or desk-bound, for whatever reason, this is the time to let your imaginations, and skill, roam the oceans and race!

Sailonline’s first leg for this year’s World Race was something of a sightseeing tour of the Mediterranean, and the choice of course design was met with some perturbation by those who didn’t want to delay heading to the Atlantic (see the timelapse!) while others were happy enough to test the mettle of their OD65s in the varied conditions offered by an autumnal Med. With a total of 403 registering to race, flying the flags of 47 nations, this really was a grand introduction to the series.

Our podium, of course, are to be congratulated on their success – it has been some years since Sailonline has seen a leader streak away from the fleet in quite such an accomplished fashion, but it has been done before. Hopefully this signals a new era of even tougher competition at the front! Bravo guys!

PEP Sprint 2017
Eddystone Lighthouse marks a nasty patch of rocks about 10 nm SSW of the approach to Plymouth. With the prevailing winds generally out of the SW in this part of the world, chances then are this race departing from inner Plymouth harbour, is going to be a beat out to the Light, requiring inter alia the avoidance of a very substantial breakwater, followed by a run to the finish out on open water. Perhaps 18 nm as the crows flies, and therefore, even as your FinnGulf 43 flies, a quickie.
