Commentary
Sailonline regularly races around the E coast of New Zealand’s North Island and, arguably, some of us are more familiar with the waters of the Hauraki Gulf than we are of the waters around our own countries, but it is seven years since we last raced a full circumnavigation of both of New Zealand’s islands. Last time, as now, we were buddied with SSANZ and being able to bring the tracks of the real racers on-screen, and follow updates via social media, really creates a sense of participating in a real event.

The initial hop from Auckland to Mangonui was just a wee tester – checking that all was shipshape. Leg 2, the longest leg from Mangonui, around the top of North Island and then the full length of South Island's west coast to Stewart Island, was challenging – particularly for the real racers as they encountered the full power of winds and currents from the Southern Ocean, but no less challenging for our virtual fleet as wx updates across potentially fickle conditions became crucial. Leg 3 still didn’t feel like a “home run” and the shelter afforded real and virtual fleets by the landmass of South Island meant that tactics really came into play – some finding choice spots for bbq (mostly unintentionally) and others really bringing all skill to bear. Finally Leg 4 – a “Coastal Classic” race, to all intents and purposes, was a fun run back to Auckland but familiarity with the course and the phase from Coromandel into Auckland didn’t mean any less need to really concentrate.

Those who gained podium places in each of Sailonline’s Legs are to be congratulated for their performances, while our Series winners are to be complimented on their consistent performance and admired for their skill at steering their Sunfast 3600s to such success. Very well done to all of you!
