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.

SWR 17/18 Leg 3 - Cape Town to Melbourne
This, the third of eleven legs of the 2017/18 Sailonline World Race, takes us from Cape Town to Melbourne!
After departing Cape Town in probably light winds and passing Cape of Good Hope, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us toward Melbourne.
The southern race boundary has been set at 60°S to mark the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone, which will, hopefully, give us a clear run.
