  • Carib Rum Run 2019
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club


    AHOY THERE YE BILGE SWILLING RUM RUNNING MAGGOTS!!!


    On 17 September at 1600utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver what remains of them to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

    All SYC Members are hereby invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

    If you are a paid-up SYC Member you may request a change your usual Sailonline boatname just in this one race to one of your piratical preference! Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

    All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name!

    PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW before submitting a request so that you don't ask for a name already taken by someone else before you!

    Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

    Once the race opens, as always, I will be endeavouring to change boatnames as efficiently as possible!

    NOTE: you may join SYC and request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

There is so much more to New York than that collection of towering skyscrapers at the mouth of the Hudson river. Upstate, it is rolling pastures, mountain ranges and lakelands, stretching all the way to the U.S. border with Canada – the St Lawrence Seaway and the waters of two great inland seas, Lakes Erie and Ontario. This race takes you right to the top of this bucolic wonderland for a 24nm sprint in classy Club Swan 50s out to the historic lighthouse on the southern tip of Galloo Island on the eastern reaches of Ontario, round the island and back to Henderson Bay. Enjoy!
