It is autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and once more Sailonline will be accompanying the pods of gray whales that are leaving the Bering Sea, before it completely ices over, for the warm waters off Mexico. This time we will be racing the polar of our 90ft Monohull – the race will open for practice on 29 October at 2000utc and the our race starts on Friday, 1 November at 2000utc.

First created for Sailonline in 2010 this race celebrates the remarkable life cycle and migration route of the Gray Whale. In 2010, 2011 and 2017 we raced from Mexico up to the Bering Sea in late Spring (the mother and calf route), in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018 and again this year we follow the autumn swim down from the icy north to the warm and shallow breeding grounds in the lagoons off Baja California.

It is only a year since we last raced south with the gray whales, and, sad to say, the health of Earth’s oceans and their marine life remain under immediate threat. As you race south along the W coast of N America to Mexico, please make some time to share knowledge and information about our oceans and what we as individuals can do to preserve and restore them. Abandoning single use plastic, getting involved with beach cleans, eating sustainable fish and seafood and , of course, supporting organisations that protect and defend marine life from man’s industrial predation are all ways you can help.

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020


The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
