    I call to be GetaPatch as in years gone by. Did me no good then but I am used to it!
  • Tall Ships Race - Lisbon to Cadiz
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Races
    As you may be aware, this Tall Ships race was interrupted by a server failure at 22.26 UTC on 6th September 2023 that lasted about 30 minutes, until it was resolved by our Tech Team.
    An e-mail request for removal of race rankings from this race was received by SRC and an internal report was prepared by SRC Chairman.
    This report discovered that four boats approaching Cape St Vincent TS mark at that time had been adversely effected by the outage such they missed the correct rounding of that mark because their delayed command (DC) fired prematurely as the DC system cannot account for server outage.
    One of the four boats affected was Go4iT (my boat) and so my report was limited to establishing the facts for SRC to debate, discuss and decide but I recused myself from that phase because I was an interested party.
    I am aware that the SRC considered a number of solutions prior to abandoning the result of the race because they concluded that it was not possible to reinstate the impacted boats in a manner that was fair both to the unaffected boats and to the affected boats.
    So the SRC concluded to schedule a resail. This resail will happen at the beginning of October 2023 as the new Calendar for Q4 is being finalised as I write.
    It was unfortunate that this outage impacted at or near the time of a rounding and this rendered any evaluation of its impact on affected boats as a very judgemental exercise and so a re-run was selected as the most equitable solution.
    Let us hope for favourable wind.
    To fully conclude this server outage, SRC did not consider the incident to have had any material impact on the Maryland to Alaska Ocean Race or the Foveaux Strait Timed Race.

    Hi NNYC MarkJohnson My OPS colleague advises me that our contact at Winnebago now runs a full winter VR series with others and so would not be interested in us. Whence we have ventured to new ice locations.

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
