Santa Monica Ron Miel Regatta 2021
Welcome to Islas Canarias for the 2021 running of a classic SOL perennial: our 1220nm round-the-islands TP52 slalom, originally designed in 2012 by SOLer TheHorn, starting from and ending close to Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria. This is our 10 year jubileum edition, as it was done for the first time in 2011 (on a slightly different track in year 1).

Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2021
Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April and it is therefore fitting that Sailonline's tradition of celebrating this joyous event by racing like loons around the Stockholm Archipelago is upheld. Please join us in a tricky 30nm race in beautiful Linjet33s from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to a birthday BBQ by Baggensfjärden.
Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!
Lycka till, alla!!

Valletta Sprint 2021
Welcome once again to the Mediterranean and a true SOL perennial. At 588nm in often light Mediterranean airs, to-date no boat – multi or maxi, SOL or IRL – has managed to best the US's Rambler’s time of 47:55:03 for this course set during the 2007 Middle Sea Race. This year, we offer you our Orange 125 catamaran, so the record is on!

Lima to Honolulu 2021
Welcome to Race 2 in our PAC6 Pacific Ocean racing championship, this a 3780nm leg from Lima to Honolulu in our fast Maxi Trimaran. Hopefully the trade winds will play ball and we should have a speedy trip, with only a small chance of the doldrums testing your light air skills!

Cape Horn TIMED Run 2021
Welcome to Chile, welcome to Cape Horn, and welcome to a course round these inhospitable waters. This is a place with plenty of wind and strong currents. Our 161 nm triangular TIMED RUN goes around two groups of small islands that are an important nesting site for a number of southern seabirds. Last raced in 2018, we are back here in our updated IMOCA 60s to attempt the challenge once more in these wild waters!
