14 October 2018

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!

Abu Dhabi to Dondra 2020
Almost exactly five years ago, SOL, shadowing a real live ocean race, set a mighty fleet of honed and updated OD65s off on a gruelling voyage from Abu Dhabi to Sanya on the southern tip of China's Hainan Island. A month later, the race closed with half the fleet still out at sea. This year, this January, we re-enact this race, but are putting in a stop halfway, after about 2000nm, at Sri Lanka's Dondra, with the second leg scheduled to start a month later; both to count towards 2020's OCCH series. Fair winds!
