15 April 2019

Who can forget the fabulous commentary at the start of last year’s B2G with accomplished yachtsmen, David Turton and Grant Cooper, the popular Nic ‘Adventures of a Sailor Girl’ Douglass and QCYC's very own roving reporter, Jodie Visser. Once again Sailonline.org will be partnering with the Queensland Cruising Yacht Club (QCYC) to bring the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race 2019 to armchair navigators around the world and Dave, Grant, Nic and Jodi will be back doing the start commentary. The virtual race starts at the same time as the real race on Good Friday, 19th April at 11:00am local time (0100 UTC) in the waters of Moreton Bay off Brisbane.

As usual, the 308 nautical mile ocean classic will start in Moreton Bay off Shorncliffe, a bayside suburb of Brisbane. The yachts proceed via a mark off Redcliffe, then across the bay to a mark off Tangalooma, Moreton Island, through the North West Channel out to the open ocean, around the top of Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island and through to the city of Gladstone.

Entrants will include some of the countries best racing yachts such as the Reichel-Pugh 100 ‘Black Jack’ and the Botin 52 ‘Ichi Ban’, as well as a number of veteran yachts whose names are cemented in Australian yachting history such as the original ‘Ragamuffin’ and ‘Too Impetuous’, both veteran Admirals Cup yachts.

The virtual B2G19 boat will have characteristics close to those of a Super Maxi 100 so participants will be able to test their navigational skills against ‘Black Jack’. ‘Black Jack’ is the updated old ‘Alfa Romeo’ which was the basis for the Sailonline super maxi 100 polar.

Sailonline's virtual race will open shortly for registration to allow ample time to practise.

In cooperation with the Race’s tracker provider, YB Tracking, Sailonline will be displaying a selection of yachts on its virtual racing screen so we can see how we are competing against the ‘real’ fleet.
