Commentary
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 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?
