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!

Melbourne to Osaka 2023
Welcome to Melbourne for Sailonline's alternative version of the Melbourne to Osaka Double Handed Yacht Race - a 5000 nautical miler. This year again we're racing the RP-66, but the route is unlimited what comes to waypoints. Because the IRL version does not run this year, we took the freedom to make our own route!
It could be a long race, east or west, and of course some doldrums to negotiate!

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.
