LISTEN UP YE RUM SOAKED SCURVY MAGGOTS!!!



In September Sailonline will once more be racing to bring rum from the Carib to Mexico and all SYC Members are invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

This is an annual affair, run in close proximity to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

It is now tradition that paid-up SYC Members may change their normal SOL boatnames just within this one race to one influenced by all things piratical! You are free to choose any name you like but remember, Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve right to disallow names we think are inappropriate.

All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread and will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.

PLEASE DO CHECK THE 2014 LIST below before submitting a request to ensure that you aren't requesting a name already taken by someone else before you!

Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

Once the race opens in September, I will change the boatnames as efficiently as possible!

NOTE: you may join SYC and request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run, but your SYC member must valid/current for the duration of the race!

Captain Haddock

"Grips the hammock netting and pulls himself carefully up the side of the good ship Jawz. He doffs his cap in acknowledgement of the bosuns pipes and places his wooden left leg forward one pace to balance himself against the roll of the deck....

....Only to wedge it in a knothole. 'Avast with the Doctors handsaw maties!' he shouts.

And there he shall remain for the rest of this voyage!!"


that be how I sail on SOL, me laddo (it seems)

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
