2020 is the tenth season of Sailonline’s association with tall ships racing organised by Sail Training International. This year, however, will be the first year that Sailonline’s racers will be racing the high seas without the company of the real fleet of tall ships. #COVID19 has impacted the world in a manner never anticipated and we will all have to adjust to what is being referred to as “new normal”. The delight, however, is that we may well find ourselves with significant competition for our top spots as STI will be encouraging the Captains and crews of the real tall ships to compete on the level playing field offered by Sailonline’s performance polar for the Clipper ship. The courses are those currently designed for 2021, so this will give everyone a chance to practise!

This is what has been planned:

In July, three races (the TSE Series) from Lisbon to Cadiz, Cadiz to Sagres and then from A Coruna to Dunkirk. If you are familiar with tall ships racing, the gap in time and geography between Race 2 and Race 3 would normally be occupied by the ever-sociable Cruise in Company phase of the Tall Ships Races.

In August two races (the TSA series) from Yeosu, Korea, to Nanao, Japan and then from Nanao to Vladivostock, Russia.

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 Wednesday, 1 July at 1200utc
