9 September 2017

Once a year for the past seven years around the date of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (19 September) a Piratical frenzy overtakes SOLers. Racing a modern yacht polar we change our names, start speaking pirate lingo and race around the islands of the Caribbean during hurricane season while visiting several of the amazing rum distilleries of the region in our Carib Rum Run PRIZE Race. It is tremendous fun and while our navsim skills may not improve that much during the course of the event, our ability to talk like a pirate surely does! Sailonline's race this year starts on 13 September at 1000utc and will open shortly for pre-race practice.

Since the death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson in San Francisco in 2013 and the subsequent founding of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in his memory, commemorated every year by a global day of sailing, known as Barts Bash in early September, we also promote this sailing charity during this race. Bart's Bash has just announced that funds raised this year will go towards projects in the Caribbean islands recently devastated by extreme weather.

The Carib Rum Run is always a PRIZE race and this year there are two prizes.

1. To the race winner will go a Nauticalia replica of Captain Cook’s Chart Magnifier, donated by RainbowChaser:

2. To the first non-SYC member to finish will go the prize of a one-year membership of SYC sponsored by the Sailonline Yacht Club under this year’s SYC Membership Pay Forward scheme (anyone interested in being a sponsor in this wonderful scheme please contact coord@sailonline.org).

Silverrudder - "Challenge of the Sea" 2017
Sailonline welcomes you to the second "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2017 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one for single handed racing. Will our new X-99'er be a match for the real fleet, including the seventeen X-99'ers?
Time will tell!

It is highly recommended that you read these special circumstances for the start of Silverrudder 2017
