Reports

Commentary

A fine breeze welcomed 138 SOLers, including at least a dozen locals, to the starting line just off Cape Town's Mouille Point for our first outing in our spanking new C2R74, designed by Mark Mills specifically for our virtual Cape to Rio 2021 race slated for January 2021. Unusually, the breeze was from the south and so it was immediately off at a fast and furious pace to a leeward mark north of Robben Island, with the fast boys all opting to depart on starboard, aiming to gybe just in front of the rocks at Bloubergstrand. At the turn onto a fetch south west, it was hard to tell who was in the lead, but by the time the leaders were hardening up, again at Bloubergstrand, for the beat home, three boats were starting to show in front, calmxy, Zorba777 and SadlerSailing, various other likely lads (rumskib, rafa, Kipper1258, bonknhoot) having in the meantime come to greater or lesser grief.

In the end, it was calmxy who just shaded it from Zorba777, and how that went in more detail, you can read in Zorba777's fine report under the button above, and see in Bimmer's terrific timelapse under the filmstrip below. calmxy's result takes him into a strong lead in the Q4 Sprint Championships and only points off the lead in the 2020 Overall after discards. All to play for then, calmxy, in the last sprint of the year off Southern California on December 19th!

Hauraki TIMED Race 2021
The Hauraki Gulf is a virtual home-from-home for Sailonline as in the course of the racing year, a number of races start from Auckland. This 35nm course was part of a SSANZ series in the past and as it is fun to race, we have "borrowed it". This is a TIMED race, so that you can practise racing the Gulf in anticipation of future races here and, quite possibly, also set the fastest run here!

Bimmer Memorial Race
It will come as no surprise that when we recently learned of the sudden death of SOLer and Danish OPS Admin Bimmer our thoughts quickly turned to running a Viking longship race in his memory. Not that long ago, Bimmer had moved house, to Svendborg from Copenhagen, so let's follow in his steps by racing this newly designed course. After leaving Copenhagen, you have the choice of racing the c. 145nm south- or north-about the Danish island of Sjaelland to the finish in Svendborg. As Bimmer was a QtVlm aficionado, everyone is encouraged to route their longship this time!
