  • 2024 CHAMPIONSHIPS NORs
    Board » Flag Officers » Championships
    The Sailonline Management is pleased to announce

    THE 2024 SOL CHAMPIONSHIP NORs
    ________________________________________


    The four annual Championships will continue without change to format.

    One special mention has to be made about the Sprint Championship:

    In 2023 we have doubled the available sprint races in a single month (one valid for Championship and one not). This has furtherly diluted the participating numbers to each of the sprint races. The scheme in 2024 will be copy paste of that of 2023 , but it is anticipated that in 2025 we may discontinue Sprint Championships (not the amount of sprint racing; only the competitiveness of part of it).

    The main change in 2024 will be represented by the discontinuing the delivery of material gold medal for each of the 48 Championship races winner.

    This is due to continuosly increasing amount of bureaucracy connected with shipments outside the EU. Each single small medal preparation for shipment means more paperwork than what is the overall value of the item and postage.

    We will therefore start a new system where each Championship race winner will receive a virtual gold medal on a certificate sent by email. To compensate a little for the loss of the physical medal, we will start delivering virtual medals to the whole podium for each Championship race.

    Also : The winner of each Quarterly Championship (16 in total) will continue to receive the exclusive plaque (at least for 2024) but we will “add” virtual medals sent by email for the rest of the podium.

    In a nutshell :

    OCEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (one each month) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    TIMED CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (three each quarter) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (three each quarter) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards

    ALL ROUND CHAMPIONSHIP
    Annual Championship
    12 races (one each month) - 2 discards
    Quarterly Championships
    the 3 races of each quarter - NO discards


    SUPERSOLER 2024
    This year again it will be the summa of 48 Championship races (12 OCCH + 12 TRCH + 12 SPRCH + 12 ARCH) and will allow 6 discards.

    Happy Championships SOLing in 2024 !

  • 2024 RACE PODIUM CERTIFICATES
    Board » Flag Officers » Races
    Hi SOLers !!!

    During 2024 you will find in this area the podium for each and every race, in the usual format of a certificate to be kept for good memory.

    Each one will be posted in the pertinent monthly area as per date of race start.

    Happy 2024 SOLing !!

    SOL Management
  • 2024 RANKINGS BY NATION
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    As anticipated one year ago, the Rankings by nation need re-thinking.

    Already in 2022 one Nation (USA) thanks to a combination of very high participating numbers … AND … a very high level of collective skills, left no space for any kind of competition for top spot to any other Team in the SOL arena as far as the TEAM formula was concerned.

    In 2023 this situation has only deteriorated. There had been no story for the TEAM rankings.

    SO :

    The Rankings by Nation (TEAM) scheme will be discontinued in 2024.
    The Rankings by Nation (INDIVIDUAL) will continue without changes for the time being.

    Should in future a formula to rectify imbalances be found and more than anything else, should be possible to automate it in the server, the scheme might be resurrected.

    The Rankings by Nation thread remains here in the SYC partition of the Forum because it is traditionally where SOLers look for it.

    Attached underneath you find 2 DOCUMENTS:

    One illustrates the revised mechanicals of the rankings scheme; the other one illustrates the mechanicals that will lead to reward the individual SOLers.

    At the end of each calendar month an up to date situation will be posted here for everyone to look at and plan improvements !

    Please feel free to comment or ask for any clarification writing to coord@sailonline.org

    I will publish here for everyone information the most important comments and clarification requests.

    Happy 2024 SOLing !!

    At the end of each month in 2024 a file illustrating the up to date situation will be posted here.

    If anyone skipper sees a note for contacting the coordinator alongside his/her boat's name , it means that the coordinator needs some data to fill the certificate . Please contact him as soon as possible.

  • 2024 SMPF SCHEME
    Board » Sailonline Yacht Club
    THE 2024 SMPF SCHEME IS LAUNCHED!
    SPONSORSHIP REQUESTS ARE WELCOMED
    ===============================

    The SMPF scheme (SYC Membership Pay Forward) will continue in 2024.

    The changes to eligibility that have been introduced in 2022 have worked well , and therefore will continue as set.

    At the end of 12 races in 2024 (one each month, under normal circumstances being the monthly Ocean Championship race)) one annual FREE membership to the Sailonline Yacht Club will be made available to the best finishing (and fully qualifying as per rules hereunder) NON SYC member in each of the nominated races. The prize can be sponsored by any SOLer willing to do so.

    The sponsors of previous editions of the SMPF scheme did either make their Sponsorship publicly known, or acted anonymously under the flag of the Sailonline Yacht Club.

    The number of slots available for sponsoring one SMPF is extremely limited, as again in 2024 ONLY ONE SMPF race per month will be nominated and sponsored. If you are interested, please hurry up and contact me. By responding promptly to this invitation you will secure yourself a slot in the 2024 Sponsorship list

    All you need to do at this time is to write to: coord@sailonline.org , and confirm your willingness to support the SMPF scheme in 2024. If available you will be granted one slot (one month) , and the race of that month that will be nominated for SMPF scheme will be “your SMPF race”.

    Some important information before you decide:

    1)– Your participation to the scheme, should you want to remain anonymous, will be treated in fully confidential mode by the Coordinator and the Sailonline Nav Sim AB Board, thus there will be only three persons aware of your position in the scheme.

    2)- This is by no means a solicitation to invest USD 35,00 into our platform, and you should not in any way feel obliged to adhere to the scheme.

    3) The prize will be delivered to the first NON SYC MEMBER over the finish line, who had NEVER been an SYC member before. As any NON SYC member over the finish line could be the prize winner, it is recommended that the next thread hereunder is looked at after an SMPF race , as the prize winner will be announced as soon as possible after the arrival of the first boat.

    4)- Should the best NON SYC member over the finish line not be eligible because lacking the requisite of point 3) above , the next in line will be identified and so on until a fully qualifying yacht is found and declared as the winner.

    5)-The SYC membership earned will start AFTER the date and time of finishing the qualifying race , as the status in that race must be and remain " NON SYC "

    6)- The SMPF prize will be delivered directly to the winner at the end of each nominated race, without asking for acceptance or collection. The winning SOLer will be made SYC member “ex officio” and the Management looks forward to hear from him/her sometimes after delivery.

    We look forward to hearing from you and to a well supported 2024 SMPF scheme!

    On behalf of Sailonline NAV SIM AB

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
