Reports

Commentary

A fine breeze welcomed 138 SOLers, including at least a dozen locals, to the starting line just off Cape Town's Mouille Point for our first outing in our spanking new C2R74, designed by Mark Mills specifically for our virtual Cape to Rio 2021 race slated for January 2021. Unusually, the breeze was from the south and so it was immediately off at a fast and furious pace to a leeward mark north of Robben Island, with the fast boys all opting to depart on starboard, aiming to gybe just in front of the rocks at Bloubergstrand. At the turn onto a fetch south west, it was hard to tell who was in the lead, but by the time the leaders were hardening up, again at Bloubergstrand, for the beat home, three boats were starting to show in front, calmxy, Zorba777 and SadlerSailing, various other likely lads (rumskib, rafa, Kipper1258, bonknhoot) having in the meantime come to greater or lesser grief.

In the end, it was calmxy who just shaded it from Zorba777, and how that went in more detail, you can read in Zorba777's fine report under the button above, and see in Bimmer's terrific timelapse under the filmstrip below. calmxy's result takes him into a strong lead in the Q4 Sprint Championships and only points off the lead in the 2020 Overall after discards. All to play for then, calmxy, in the last sprint of the year off Southern California on December 19th!

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
