2019 sees the ninth season of Sailonline’s association with tall ships races organised by Sail Training International. This year we won’t be going “intercontinental” but the four races in Sailonline’s series will all take part around Europe in two separate events and we will be aiming to bring the tracks of the Class A entrants in all races on-screen so we can compare performances!

This is what we have in store:

In June, two races of the Liberty Tall Ships Regatta - Race 1 from a Tall Ships Festival in Rouen, France, to one in The Hague/Scheveningen, Netherlands and then Race 2 from The Hague/Scheveningen to the Tall Ships Festival in Aalborg, Denmark.

In July, two races of The Tall Ships Races 2019 - in July this year – Race 1 from Aalborg, Denmark to Fredrikstad, Norway and Race 2 from Bergen, Norway, to Aarhus, Denmark. As always, the real ships will sail a Cruise-In-Company between Fredrikstad and Bergen during which time there can be crew exchanges as the ships make their way to various welcome-ports along the way.

This virtual sailing experience runs hand in hand with Sail Training International's mission - the development and education of young people through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Sail Training International and Sailonline both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation.

Navigating a tall ship is a remarkably challenging affair, especially if you are more familiar with modern yachts, and gives a real insight into the true nature of ocean exploration in days gone by, so why not start learning the basics today so you will be ready for your Tall Ships experience!

There are four classes of Tall Ship in the real races, ranging from the biggest Class A Square Rigged ships of more than 40m in length, down to training yachts of 9.14m. Sailonline has developed performance polars based on published data for several different tall ships, and races to compete against Class A ships.

Sailonline's first race will open for practice on Tuesday, 11 June and this year we will be sailing the polar of our Clipper ship.

Nantucket to Edgartown 2019
It's summer in New England and you are all welcome back to Nantucket, from whence Herman Melville’s Cap’n Ahab sailed off past the Cape of Good Hope to find the northern Pacific Ocean to hunt the white sperm whale. The toil and hardship of Ahab and his contemporaries are distant memories and outdoor sea and beach fun is what the island is all about today. So, let's sail, this time to Edgartown and Martha's Vineyard.
