Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » 2016 SMPF SCHEME

Hi ALL ;)
I am here introducing you to one of the new topics of 2016 : The SMPF scheme.

SMPF stands for “ SYC Membership Pay Forward” , and will enable once a month a NON SYC member to become SYC member for a full year , courtesy of one active Club member or the Club itself.

It has happened once in 2015 : one SOLer , who is also SYC member ,and wanted to remain incognito had the idea to donate one SYC annual membership to the top finisher NON SYC member in the VanIsle race . The prize has been won by super famous SOLer “smo” , who not only was the first NON SYC member on the finish line , but also won that race.
The SOL Management Team has taken the successful idea on board for 2016.

The first SMPF race will be UP Helly AA , starting on January 26th , and the SYC membership will be sponsored by the Sailonline Marketing Department. The race and Sponsors program for the remaining 11 months of this year will be released as soon as possible.

The prize and prerequisites : one Race per month either chosen by the membership sponsor or in default by the SRC will be selected where the first yacht to finish, whose registered skipper has not been an SYC member for SIX months prior to the start of that race, will win an annual sponsored subscription to SYC from the date he completes that race.

In 2016 the scheme is only on trial basis , and therefore sponsorship is not open to all of you at this time, but , should any one active SYC member want to participate , even if he/she has not received the personal invitation letter that I have sent to very few , will be very welcome to the list of SMPF sponsors . For queries and declaration of interest please write to :

coord@sailonline.org

Depending on the amount of interest that will be generated within the SYC members community , the frequency of this race sponsorship might be reviewed.

Please stay tuned on this thread for more news on the scheme.

SOL Coordinator
I am now glad to announce that the initial feedback on this scheme has been very positive , to the extent that we had to raise the frequency of the sponsorship in 2016.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
