10 September 2018

‘Tis time for our annual Pirate frenzy – for the 8th year Sailonline takes inspiration from International Talk Like a Pirate Day (19 September) to change our boatnames, start speaking pirate lingo and race around the islands of the Caribbean during hurricane season, visiting several world class rum distilleries and in pursuit of our Carib Rum Run PRIZEs. It is tremendous fun and while our navsim skills may not improve that much during the course of the event, our ability to talk like a pirate surely does! Sailonline's race this year starts on 15 September at 1600utc and will open shortly for pre-race practice.

Since the death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson in San Francisco in 2013 and the subsequent founding of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in his memory, commemorated every year by a global day of sailing, known as Barts Bash in early September, we also promote this sailing charity during this race.

The Carib Rum Run is always a PRIZE race and this year there are more prizes than ever.

1. The race winner, wherever they are in the world, will receive a Nauticalia replica of Captain Cook’s chart Magnifier, donated (and posted) by RainbowChaser:

2. The first non-SYC member to finish will receive a prize of a one-year membership of SYC sponsored by the Sailonline Yacht Club under this year’s SYC Membership Pay Forward scheme (anyone interested in being a sponsor in this wonderful scheme please contact coord@sailonline.org).

3. Each member of our winning podium will receive 12 months membership of SYC (or a 12 months extension of it, if they are already members!).

JOIN THE SYC TO RACE WITH A PIRATE NAME:
SYC Members only may request that their SOL boatname is changed to something piratical for this race! All info is here . Such a boatname change for this one race will not change your login credentials or affect your SYC rankings. You may join SYC at any time before race finish!

Hong Kong to Puerto Galera 2019
Welcome all to SOL's fourth race in this year's twelve race SYC Championships, and to another prestigious buddy-up with RHKYC for their inaugural Hong Kong to Puerto Galera ocean race. 650nm as the red-footed booby flies, and for our Santa Cruz 52's just a quick dash with the sheets more than likely well-eased.

Boston to Plymouth TransAt 2019
Sailonline first raced between Plymouth and Boston in 2008, but it was in 2009 that the course was reversed, creating our classic Boston to Plymouth route. Usually sailed as a TIMED TransAt, this time we are racing as a fleet. Crossing the North Atlantic in N Hemisphere Spring can be a challenging enterprise and now, in this era of increasing climate instability, traditional routes may not prove to be the best! Have fun deciding your strategy!
