Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2021

Sailonline is delighted to be partnering with Point Yacht Club for the 2021 version of the South African classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. The Vasco da Gama Ocean race is Africa’s oldest ocean coastal race and over the years it has been run over courses from Maputo, Mozambique to Port Elizabeth, Durban to Port Elizabeth and Durban to East London. Because of #COVID19 restrictions the 2021 will be a wild and woolly downhill sleigh-ride along South Africa’s Wild Coast so-named because conditions along the coast are invariably wild and dangerous.

While the real fleet will be made up of several boat-types, Sailonline’s racers will be racing their Farr 38 Polar and doing their best to beat the best in the real event. It is also hoped to bring the tracks of the real yachts on-screen which not only adds to the sense of competition, but also shows how the navigators in the real fleet have to adjust to local conditions.

Sailonline’s race will start on Sunday, 16 May 2021 at 0900utc and the race will open for practice on Tuesday, 11 May, also at 0900utc.

Reports

Commentary
The winds were from abeam to abaft and kind for the Bay-To-Bay races on The Great Sandy Strait again this year, and, despite the intricacies of hires UCAR/NCAR wind, online, straight lines from can to can were generally best. This put a premium on cornering skills, as emphasized in saij29's excellent report under the button above. It is the very unusual SOLer that always gets his roundings spot on, and, year-to-year and race-to-race, it is rarely the same one, so as so often in the past, six different names decorated the podium.

This year, race 1 went to the USA's FastPassage, and indeed, American sailors were to the fore also in race 2, the one that mattered as it was a counter towards the Sprint Championships, which was won for the second year in a row by Poland's WRmirekd. A bleary-eyed well done, that man!

Reports

Commentary

In 2013, two SOLers, JakeS and Smo, created a virtual version of a real race between the islands of the Swedish and Finnish archipelago. Contrary to the real race, which involved three overnight stops, the virtual version is a non-stop race. Both versions require incredible determination and condition from participants.

Many players, took longer or shorter tactical breaks by choosing one of the many islands. After all, everyone who finished this crazy race deserves praise and those who stood on the podium should be treated with admiration for their madness.

The difficulties of this race are evidenced by the data presented below:
151 crews joined the race and only 70 finished.
Our winner, Taffarazzi, covered the 484.7 nm route, also taking advantage of several regeneration stops in 89h 59m 26s.
TOP 10 is closed by the brewman, 15h 32m after the winner.
You will learn about the details from the submitted reports. We invite you to read.

Congratulations to all finishers. Well done podium!

GEFELICITEERD bonknhoot!! CONGRATULAZIONI Sax747!

Race Leaderboard

Commentary

144 Boats took the start of this demanding 1200 NM race in and around the Canary Islands. Relatively short stretches between waypoints didn't promise much easy sleep and extended coastal passages required precision steering. The race became more open around the halfway point, when doldrums caused boats to spread out in different directions. But in the end it were three experienced SOLers that prevailed with WRmirekd finishing first after a little over 5.5 days of sailing. Bonknhoot took second place, about 3 minutes behind, and Sax747 completed the podium.

116 Participants reached the finish. Congratulations all!

Hauraki TIMED Race 2021
The Hauraki Gulf is a virtual home-from-home for Sailonline as in the course of the racing year, a number of races start from Auckland. This 35nm course was part of a SSANZ series in the past and as it is fun to race, we have "borrowed it". This is a TIMED race, so that you can practise racing the Gulf in anticipation of future races here and, quite possibly, also set the fastest run here!

Bimmer Memorial Race
It will come as no surprise that when we recently learned of the sudden death of SOLer and Danish OPS Admin Bimmer our thoughts quickly turned to running a Viking longship race in his memory. Not that long ago, Bimmer had moved house, to Svendborg from Copenhagen, so let's follow in his steps by racing this newly designed course. After leaving Copenhagen, you have the choice of racing the c. 145nm south- or north-about the Danish island of Sjaelland to the finish in Svendborg. As Bimmer was a QtVlm aficionado, everyone is encouraged to route their longship this time!
