Sailonline is delighted to announce that for the third time it is partnering with Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in the virtual version of it’s Hong Kong to Hainan Race 2018.

The Hong Kong to Hainan Race is organised and conducted by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) with co-operation with the Bureau of Culture, Broadcast & TV, Publication and Sports of the Sanya Municipal Government with the finish hosted by Serenity Marina in Sanya, Hainan

Sailonline’s virtual yacht will again be based on the polar of a TP52 racing yacht, and, like the real fleet, we will be doing our best to beat the 2016 course record of 23h 31m 52s, set by Seng Huang Lee’s 100ft Super Maxi Scallywag. Our direct competition this year will be Sam Chan’s TP52, FreeFire. As always we hope to track the fleet via YB Tracking so racers on Sailonline will be able to see the real fleet positions, as updated, on the virtual race screen.

Sailonline’s race is open for pre-race practice. Please note that the virtual race will be starting E of Hong Kong Island to permit delayed commands to be set for the start (remember, our racers are in all time zones!) and later by 30mins of the real start time to allow the real fleet to get to us and make a real race of it!

Shetland Winter Race 2021
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
