Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races » Jester Azores Challenge 2016

On 15 May 2016, the Jester Azores Challenge 2016 will start from Plymouth Breakwater at 1200utc. The contestants in reality are single-handed small boats (between 20’-30’) which will sail independently to the port of Terceira in the Azores. Among these will be long-time SOLer, YBW_PYE_END, who will be sailing his Victoria Frances 26, Francesca and we will be able to track his progress via a Google Earth kml feed (linked below).

Sailonline will be racing a Twister 28, which was first raced against SOLer CG and her Twister Florence in June 2010, which should keep us in touch with the real challengers.

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.
