CONGRATULATIONS Sadlersailing!!!

Race Leaderboard


Sailonline would like to thank San Diego Yacht Club for letting us share in the experience of the 2018 Vallarta Race. Boats flying the flags of 36 nations took part and we saw a contingent of 35 USA flagged boats – an excellent turnout!

Racing in the waters off San Diego is always a joy and to combine our time in California with a run to Mexico for this year’s Vallarta Race was particularly special. The waters are pretty familiar for SOLers who have participated in one of Sailonline’s Gray Whale epic races, but the experience of sailing in competition with the real fleet lent an extra edge to the event! Racing our Santa Cruz 52 polar, we would have been in Division 5 in the real race, especially as can be seen from this pic, by 18 March both fleets were well mixed in with each other – although Mighty Merloe, an ORMA60, raced well in front to set a new course record, trimming about 4 hrs off the old one!

This time Division 5 had four Santa Cruz yachts racing – two 50s and two 52s. The first home in the Division was SC50 Horizon in a corrected time of 5d4h15m38s and the first SC52, Lucky Duck had a corrected time of 5d13h11m39s which means that our virtual winner , Sadlersailing, would have been placed second in the Division with a finishing time of 5d9h39m35s!! You’ve gotta love how the sophistication of our platform can truly keep us in touch with actuality!

Congratulations then to the real finishers and especially to our excellent podium – all three arriving within minutes of each other. Bravo, guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
