San Diego Islands Race 2021

Sailonline is delighted to announce it is once more partnering with the prestigious San Diego Yacht Club to run a virtual version of the 2021 Islands Race in tandem with the real event. SDYC has been racing in reality in the waters off San Diego for 130yrs and in 2016 it became the first USA West Coast yacht club to bring virtual sailing navigation to its members and the west coast sailing community.

The first Islands Race was held back in 2010 and has become a regular season-starter ever since, but this will be only the second time that Sailonline has provided a virtual version of the race for all-comers! The real fleet has to observe a military exclusion zone around the entire island of San Clemente, so our virtual course has our San Clemente waypoint offshore to reflect this. As ever we will be sailing our TP-52s around the 134nm official course and plan on bringing the real fleet on-screen so we can directly go head to head with the real fleet

Sailonline's race will open for pre-race practice on Sunday, 28 February.

Reports

Commentary

Light winds again greeted our fleet of SOLers for this the second race of the 12-race SYC Championships (with 2 discards). However, despite our forecasts being high resolution wrf, they proved relatively steady from one forecast to the next and only subtle differences in routings provided opportunities for competitors to eke out slender leads on their nearest rivals, in particular on the first EU-night upwind crossing of the Loyaute Basin to We, and on the last day downwind across the sea from Ambryn to Port Orly.

But with a chain of islands to be negotiated as we weaved our way north through Vanuatu, a BBQ could easily undo whatever lead one might have developed, and so, as our winner and runner-up modestly reflect in their reports under the buttons above, it was that nacrr, not putting a foot wrong took the gun whilst one after another of his rivals went ashore for a little (or a lot of) R & R; nacrr The Navigator indeed!

Commentary
Our Maxi Trimaran did indeed prove very speedy in the long Southern Pacific ocean race, but in the end it was HappyHour who was the clear winner. Congratulations!

The weather in this part of the world is often difficult to read over the long term, and being one of the less-traversed of the world's oceans, there are no common sailing routes for racers as opposed to cruisers. The fleet split into three, spread between the rhumb line and the deep south and for most of the race it was unclear who would prevail.

Pacific Northwest Inshore 2021 - RESULTS

Report

Commentary

As so often, the winds were fickle and variable across the sheltered waters of the Puget Sound and Georgia Straits for the 2021 edition of Sailonline's classic Inshore Pacfic Northwest race, this time using nam_awip 0.125 x 0.125 degree mezzo-resolution forecast gribs. But J-122s ghost along quite nicely and thus the leaders managed to complete the 137nm from Vancouver to Seattle in just under 38 hours for an average VMC of 3.7 knot.

And of course the spectacular scenery and wildlife of the northern Pacific archipelago were always there to distract our 135 racers, and many an impromptu BBQ ensued! But somebody had to win and this year it was Poland's WRmirekd's turn, coming in an impressive 6 minutes ahead of second placed rafa, with GREATSKUA (see his report) grabbing third spot. A fine international podium!
