We are changing how we organize our race management 'behind the scenes' at Sailonline in 2024. These changes will be various and announced later.

One change will be the introduction of a new role, for which we are seeking a number of volunteers.


It is not a difficult nor a time-consuming role. It simply requires volunteers to double-check that the actions (so-called DBAs) to OPERATE a PLANNED race have been timely set.

Each OPERATIONS MONITOR volunteer will be issued (by means of daily email) a list of the set DBAs pending ‘execution’ with date that they will execute.
He/she will need to be familiar with the Quarterly Calendar.
He/she will also hold a copy of the SETUP TIMETABLE which sets out the agreed lead times for launching and then closing a race by type
If he/she finds DBAs are delayed, he/she contacts Sailonline's PRO (bonknhoot), copying the COOrdinator ( WINSTON_4). Next day, on issue of the new pending DBAs email, he/checks that the situation has been rectified.

An OPERATIONS MONITOR will be on 'deck' for a week (ideally only one week every six or seven) to be relieved by the next volunteer according to the roster that will be organized by the COOrdinator according to the availabilities indicated by the volunteers.

Training will be held by the COOrdinator and will take 15 minutes. These new roles will be very very important for the continuing integrity of the platform, but will require only very very light and occasional work for each of the volunteers.

To volunteer, please email coord@sailonline.org.

Raja Muda International Regatta 2023 - RESULTS

Overall Results



Fitful light airs - should one expect anything else in the Tropics - made our online hosting of a 3-race series in cooperation with the Royal Selangor Yacht Club's annual Raja Muda Selangor International Race Week a challenging affair for the more than 100 SOLers who ventured out onto the virtual waters of the Straits of Malacca, and gave us a new-to-SOL champion - mb007 from Argentina.

With a 4th, a 1st and a 2nd, 007 not just stirred, but quite shook the established SOL order into a cocktailed hat. It was edge-of-your-seat action as in the movies of course, and to give you a flavour Mr Bond has provided us with a brief-de-brief which you can find under the buttonized flag of Selangor above.

Nassau to Bodø 2023 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Race Leaderboard



This race, culminating the RTW series and skilfully designed by SOL user ita10267, witnessed podium finishers covering approximately 4700 nautical miles in just under 14 days. This remarkable feat translates to an impressive average of 335 nautical miles per day at an average speed of 14 knots. The journey commenced with 111 boats setting sail on time, predominantly on a port tack in an easterly route. Twenty hours into the race, boats began tacking north, yet opinions diverged on the optimal moment, leading to a significant split among participants. The late tackers initiated their northward course after 30 hours. By the third day, a noticeable divide emerged as a small group chose a northern route, loosely following a great circle (GC) path, while the main group adhered more closely to the rhumb line. Initially, the GC route appeared faster, leaving the main group trailing by 140 miles. This gap widened, surpassing 200 miles by day 8.

A week later, the race witnessed another shift in the top positions as the final scene of ranking unfolded. The competition culminated in a thrilling finish, with the top 5 separated by a mere 1.3 nautical miles. In total, 143 boats participated, and as of the current writing, 119 of them successfully reached the finish line.

Heartfelt congratulations to the podium achievers—ita10267, Sax747, and StIngFI—for their outstanding performance and strategic prowess.

Seven Voyages of Sinbad 2023 - RESULTS

click on results image to see larger


Overall Results


Our reenactment of seven voyages across the length and breadth of the Indian Ocean that Sinbad might have had, if Scheherazade had only had better charts available to her when she was telling Sharyar her tales, proved to be at least as eventful as the thousand-and-one stories that saved her life. Monsoons and doldrums, ice and fire, shoals and cliffs, everything (bar waves and current) that Allah created to try sailors was encountered, but in the end, race after 2500nm-or-more race, only one bad sinner prevailed ahead of all others, and it was...

WRmirekd, who after discarding his results in the two voyages he missed entirely, just pipped FreyjaUSA, with HappyHour completing the podium (on countback from Series designer bonknhoot). Mabrouk liljamie, to the more than 300 of you who crossed at least one of the many seas that Scheherazade didn't have a chart of.

SOL's Bermuda Triangle TIMED Race 2023
Inspired by the America’s Cup racing in Bermuda, this is a fun triangular course of 90nm, which we originally raced with psail and bonkhoot’s collaborative polar for the AC72 foiling catamaran. Having tried the course in the more pedestrian Open 60 in 2021, this year we return to the AC72, in fact to the MODIFIED AC72v2, modified to remove the inconsistencies that obtained from the original interpolation of the limited data issued by the AC 2003 Principal Race Officer in connection with penalties determination. This is a TIMED race, which means you get multiple chances to try out the ramifications of the revisions. Be careful though, the polar remains a handling challenge with major stall-out potential!

Finland-Sweden Archipelago Raid 2023
In 2013, SOLer "JakeS" in cooperation with "Smo" created his own version of the extreme Archipelago Raid catamaran race. The real race through the beautiful Finnish and Swedish archipelago is considered a "nightmare and a great adventure", so in our sixth run of this challenge at 415 nautical miles, our determination and skills will be tested again! This year, we changed the Italia14.98 to a Cape 31. Take care when cornering and brake early enough.
