Race Leaderboard

With the eighth running of Sailonline’s race to the Up Helly Aa fire festival in Lerwick, Scotland, starting just the day before the festival, there was a new atmosphere in the race as the fleet was very much still racing as the parade and ship-burning took place while we were watching the livestream of the event from 60˚North. There are some fabulous images findable and linked here on the event’s website which really capture a sense of just how wild, windy and wet the event was and, of course, how spirits were in no way diminished by the conditions!

Once again Sailonline would like to thank Promote Shetland for letting us share in the Up Helly Aa experience and for promoting our race in their blog.

The race started with reasonable conditions at 1100utc on 29 January, and this meant that most of the Europeans in the race were approaching the turn in the Moray Firth during the night. Many found delightful bbq spots there ahead of the run to Shetland. As ever, after passing the first Shetland mark at Gruney, the circuitous route around the islands until the approach to Lerwick was extremely difficult and so it is that our front runners, all of them, showed tremendous determination to succeed!

With a total of 204 boats registered in the race, flying the flags of 38 nations this was one of the best “global” races to Up Helly Aa in Sailonline’s history. Beating tough competition and this most-tricky of courses around Shetland to reach the podium was a tremendous achievement. Congratulations guys!

Consider yourself warned.
