Commentary

No reports on this one, but your roving reporter sharply remembers what went on. Soft balmy winds generally from ahead but sometimes from the sea reigned for the duration of the two weeks window, but early doors, over the course of Tuesday, 5 April, up to 9 knots of breeze out of the WSW developed, which as far as the 7-day WX stretched was as good as it was going to get, and the usual suspects, bar Kipper1258, went out for a spin, or rather an overnighter, with Pit8008 coming out on top as the wind faded away again.

Several days later, new WX's started to show that a much better window would likely develop for Friday, 15 April. And it did, but in the early hours of the UTC morning and those who had not checked the 2230z WX before going to bed (or out for the day) missed it badly, as the favourable breeze died away as quicky as it had come. Pit8008 missed the ideal depart time by slightly more than a minute , thus ceding his lead to Italy's Cippalippa, who had not featured Tuesday the week before. Starting at 4 seconds past midnight, Cippa recorded a time of 9:44:11, several hours quicker than the previous bests as the winds now got up to 11 knots and briefly more, again out of the WSW. Pit did it in 9:44:24, and Vida_Maldita starting 11 minutes later recording a 9:44:30, with Kipper starting for his one and only run a further 16 minutes later just missing the podium in 9:44:36. Well done all who spotted the moment and scrambled out onto the course as soon as they could!

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.
