  • Re: Why not Route du Rhum ?

    Bonjour cesclem64

    If you look at the "Route du Rhum" website you will find that VR has been appointed "Official Partner" of the event. This means that two commercial organizations have agreed to a partnership on a commercial basis . Sailonline is NOT a commercial operation and when we partner with race organizers it is simply a buddy up on the grounds of reciprocal Public Relations benefits. This means that we never get any exclusive partnership, and that we never demand one.

    We are delighted that you like SOL and hope to see you as often as you like racing on our platform!

    On behalf of Sailonline Management Team

    Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
    This post was moved from the thread Here is how to propose new races.
    Musigny - Whilst SOL does not have a dinghy like you suggest, we do have a Twister 28 whose hull speed upwind is not unlike a Laser but no planning downwind. I appreciate that a) the Twister is not a Swedish boat and b) it would bottom out at most marks in your lake but in medium/light winds it would give us a hard work 2 - 3 hour sprint. Acceptable?
    Our other dinghy is an F18 catamaran and that would zom around too fast.

    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    SRC's apologies for not responding sooner. As you may note, SRC schedules races in quarterly batches and so any proposal just one month before a real life start is just too short a notice for us unless it is a potentially buddied race or similar.
    Would SRC be OK to consider running this race in 2018Q3?

  • Golden Globe Races 2018 - Seat Of The Pants commitment
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    Inviting SOLers to experience ‘old school’ sailing 1968 style.
    SRC is inviting SOLers to commit to emulating the real racers in this 50th year anniversary of Robin Knox Johnson’s voyage in Suhaili by committing to race your similar SOL boat (Rustler 36) with no outside assistance, i.e. _NOA, for the feeder, fleet and timed races. See what they have to experience whilst still availing yourself of confirmed six-hour weather (be most grateful as the real sailors do not have even that benefit), dry clothes, a warm and steady bunk, hot food, showers, a country walk to the pub, library etc. and some company etc.!
    As a RETRO Race, for the Golden Globe, generally speaking only equipment that was available to Robin Knox Johnston on Suhaili in 1968 may be used. That means NO GPS, Chart plotters, electronic wind instruments, electric autopilots, electronic log, iPhone, satellite phones, digital cameras, computers, cd players, pocket calculators electronic clocks and watches, water makers, carbon fibre, Kevlar, spectra etc… so it is back to film cameras, cassette tapes, sextants, wind up clocks, trailing logs and Dacron sails, wind vanes and typewriters.
    Suhaili was a slow, sturdy 32ft double-ended ketch based on a William Atkins ERIC design. She was heavily built of teak and carried no computers, GPS, satellite phone nor water-maker, and Robin completed the challenge with no outside assistance or aid of modern day shore-based weather routing advice. He had only a wind-up chronometer and a barograph to face the world alone, and caught rainwater to survive.
    Let us see how we match up to Sir Robin and those brave enough to go out to sea and accept the challenge. Whilst SOL is unable to totally mirror the course for the real racers (see http://goldengloberace.com/the-route/ ) SOL is substantially sailing the same course after a feeder leg and then in a fleet race ,including the 90 minute stopover in Storm Bay Tasmania, followed by a Timed race back to Les Sables d'Olonne.
    Please add your boat name below in a response to this post as a record of your commitment to sail Seat Of The Pants (SOTP) for the feeder and then the whole race of about 300 days!

  • Re: 40 Series - Ratings
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    Hi JB and thank you for your research.
    This will be borne in mind when SRC and the Board of Directors are considering the SOL 40' Series for 2019 and thereafter.

    In the meantime we have a remaining nine races in this 12 race series where people are steadily using up their quota of the 'hot' designs.

Aland Sea TR 2018
Norrtalje Segelsallskap, 70km NE of Stockholm was founded in 1920, and time was when the society’s season opened with a challenging offshore race from the club line off Flaten island at the mouth of the long and narrow Norrtaljeviken, out onto a triangular course around the Aland Sea, to finish at Simpnas slightly to the north on Bjorko island - some 70nm in total. A fine race that SOL, being from these parts, ran annually up until 2013. Not a moment too late then - five years have passed and autumn is upon us - for a further re-enactment, this time in the form a TIMED RUN in spanking new Club Swan 50s.

Gray Whale Migration Autumn 2018
It is autumn in the N Hemisphere and gray whales are beginning their annual southerly migration, from their feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to the warm waters off the Mexican coastline. There have always been natural challenges on this journey, with younger whales falling prey to orcas, but, sadly, mankind's pollution of our planet's oceans, especially in the form of plastic waste, has heightened the risks. Racing our superyacht this time, spare a moment's thought for how we can protect and conserve oceans and marinelife.

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!!
