Iceland TIMED Race 2023 - RESULTS

GOOD ONYA Kipper1258!!!

Race Leaderboard


The first Timed Race of 2023 was held in Iceland, and it was definitely an interesting one. The desired wind conditions were as follows: a consistent 30 knots of wind coming from the SW and shifting nearly to the S while rounding Alviðruhamrar (or alternatively, NW and shifting nearly to the W). This would enable our Orange Cats to maintain its maximum speed of 29.5 knots on the rhumb lines and theoretically set a time of just over 5 hours. However, actually finding the best winds have proven tricky - while winds are abundant off the south coast of Iceland, they aren't necessarily blowing in the right direction or strength.
The 16 day window saw a total of 481 successfully completed runs from 125 skippers, which can be viewed here. Starting at around 10pm UTC on 20 January provided the best winds for a quick run, with over 30 boats seizing this opportunity. It was hotly contested, with all of the top 10 setting times barely over a minute apart. Of those, Kipper1258 proved to be the best, saving precious seconds by making small tweaks as "simply banging the corners is no longer good enough", with Pit8008 and calmxy just 8 and 11 seconds adrift, respectively. Thereafter, the Wx occasionally showed promise of more favourable winds in the remaining 9 days, but none of those opportunities materialized, keeping the podium unchanged. Well done!

Seoul to Seoul Sprint 2023 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard



The new year came upon us all quite quickly and so did the very first sprint for the year of 2023! Our sailors started the 2023 sprint championship with a brisk race in the bay of the well known city, Seoul, South Korea.

The weather was rather light with the direction not changing too much over the course of the race, however, this didn’t stop our sailors from having an extremely exciting race! At first glance of the course and the weather, it seemed like it would be quite a straightforward race around the course, but this was far from the reality! Many of our sailors tried all types of strategies hoping that they could take the top spot, WRmirekd outlines all of this extremely well in his report which is attached above!

The competition was extremely fierce as it always is when it comes to these sprint races, and therefore the leaderboard was changing throughout the entire race, making for some exciting racing! When our sailors went around the final rounding WRmirekd, Patrick70119 and FreyjaUSA were in the top spots and were able to keep their positions all the way to the finish line!

Congratulations to WRmirekd on a phenomenal victory and to Patrick70119 and FreyjaUSA for their well deserved podium positions!
