Commentary
Sailonline is celebrating a decade of racing in association with Promote Shetland, from Aberdeen on the NE Coast of the Scottish Mainland, to the Up Helly Aa fire festival in Lerwick, Shetland Islands. This year the race began the day before the event, which meant that the fleet, encountering unusually light conditions in the Moray Firth and rounding the Moray mark, were all still racing as the Parade began. Some tremendous footage was livestreamed via Shetland Webcams although race chat was relatively quiet, apart from a couple of fierce Up Helly Aa aficionados!

The fleet remained fairly strung out, as conditions improved a little as it arrived at the slalom section of the race, around Gruney, down to leave Samphrey to port, looping up and around the top of Shetland to dive down again, this time through Bluemull Sound, to skirt Hascosay and enter Lerwick Harbour from the Nort to finish in front of the town.

This entertaining and challenging course requires tremendous stamina to complete without bbq-ing, most of us fail in the endeavour, but our fabulous podium three, along with their immediate followers, are to be congratulated on their success. Congratulations on setting a super example for the rest of us!

As always, Sailonline would like to thank Shetland Tourism for letting us share in the Up Helly Aa experience and promoting our race on their website. This year our fleet was flying the flags of 34 nations, bringing Shetland’s fire festival experience truly to all corners of the sailing world!
