Commentary
For the real racers who have taken part in the epic Sydney to Hobart race, they and their boats head home to different parts of the globe to prepare for future campaigns. For SOLers, however, ferrying our chosen boats back to Sydney has become a tradition. The competition for this race, starting just after the New Year, is just as fierce as ever for some, while others take a more relaxed approach to their departure from Hobart with a general south-ish, then east then north approach to their strategy! Like all SOL races, though, however you approach the event, it is fun for everyone and wherever you are in the starting line-up you can find someone to publicly or secretly matchrace against. There is always something quietly pleasing about winning even a minor match and a quick scan of the leaderboard shows racers duking each other out throughout the finish – some examples are the 4 second gap between 5 (Zoe) and 6 (psail), the one second gap at 15 (TheHorn) and 16 (rafa), and a five second gap between daisy (67) and Musigny (68)!

Our podium three this time includes two racers who took podium honours in Race 1 which is very impressive – consistently to outperform the keen competition on Sailonline is not that common! Many congratulations guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague
Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018
Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?

Golden Globe Race 2018 - Falmouth to Les Sables-d'Olonne
Welcome to Sailonline’s virtual Golden Globe Race 2018 and the SITraN prologue to Les Sables d’Olonne, starting immediately after the IRL competitors’ Parade of Sail in Falmouth Harbour celebrating the 50th anniversary of the departure of the original Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, who will compete in production yachts of the size and type used in 1968 and will only use materials and equipment that was available to them then, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race this prologue and the race proper (in two legs) by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, relying solely on the SOL predictor line and dead reckoning for navigation.
