10 February 2019


Sailonline is delighted to once again be buddying with the Short-handed Sailing Association of New Zealand (SSANZ) for the Round New Zealand race 2019. When we last raced anti-clockwise round both of New Zealand’s islands with SSANZ back in 2012, it was the first time the real race had been run for 22 years! The race in 2012 was immensely challenging for the real racers with some almost impossible conditions encountered in Leg 2. The race this time is again in four legs, following the previous route:


Leg 1 – Auckland to Mangonui (160nm)
Leg 2 – Mangonui to Stewart Island (920nm)
Leg 3 – Stewart Island to Napier (620nm)
Leg 4 – Napier to Auckland (320nm)


The Tracker

Leg 1 of the race will start at 0100utc on Saturday,16 February and each subsequent leg of the real race will start in accordance with the formula set out in the Sailing Instructions , namely:

“At a time set by the Race Committee during the Compulsory Stopover. (i) Mangonui 24 hours minimum after the 75% boat finishes (ii) Stewart Island 72 hours minimum after the 75% boat finishes (iii) Napier 48 hours minimum after the 75% boat finishes.
There will be a mass start for each leg at a convenient time set by the Race Committee soon after 75% of the fleet have fulfilled the stopover duration.”

PLEASE NOTE: Sailonline will be competing as closely as is virtually possible with the real yachts and will be aiming to give a minimum of 24hrs notice of a start time. It is intended to close each leg promptly, in harmony with the real race, but we hope to give some allowance here. As always, your ranking for each leg will be your position at leg close.

hmm's Delivery 2019
When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Aden to Goa 2019
Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
