4 July 2022

Welcome to Sailonline’s Tall Ships racing in Europe 2022 for the 12th consecutive season in association with Sail Training International. With the global pandemic being managed as safely as possible, we have tall ships racing in reality this year (always subject, of course, to the vagaries of #COVID19) so we are delighted to find ourselves once more racing against the best of the best in the real tall ships world.

The two races, comprising a Sailonline mini-series, will be:

1. The Tall Ships Races 2022 - Race 1 – Esbjerg to Harlingen
2. The Tall Ships Races 2022 - Race 2 – Antwerp to Aalborg

You may wonder what happens between Harlingen and Antwerp – well, the real ships and crews are “cruising in company”, which is tall-ship speak for swapping crews for shared experience and competition and dropping into selected local ports. Sailonline has the luxury of having its virtual Clippers magically moved from the finish of Race 1 to the start of Race 2!

This virtual sailing experience runs hand in hand with Sail Training International's mission - the development and education of young people through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Sail Training International and Sailonline both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation.

There are four classes of Tall Ship in the real races, ranging from the biggest Class A Square Rigged ships of more than 40m in length, down to training yachts of 9.14m. Sailonline has developed performance polars based on published data for several different tall ships, and usually races to compete against real Class A ships. If you are more accustomed to sailing, or not at all, the experience of racing a Tall Ship with its hugely tricky windward performance is truly challenging so the sooner you register to race on Sailonline and learn the technical basics of how to navigate and steer any boat, the better you will be when we start our Tall Ships racing for 2022 later this week!

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.
