#RDV2017 - Sines to Bermuda

Welcome to Sines, Portugal where the fleet of real tall ships are arriving from England and getting ready for the first leg of their E-W Transatlantic adventure while taking part in the local tall ships festival.


Festival Dates: 29 April- 1 May 2017

From here the real fleet races to the Canary Islands, but as Sailonline has recently slalomed around the entire island group, we won’t be stopping but passing by and heading for the destination of Bermuda.


Festival Dates: 1-5 June 2017

Run in association with Sail Training International, Sailonline is delighted to offer this remarkable chance for SOLers to try their hands at racing a (virtual) Clipper across the Atlantic in direct competition with the real fleet as we have permission to bring their tracks on-screen within our race.

The Sailonline race will start on Monday 1 May and is already open for pre-race practice.

Commentary
Since its first running in 2011, this super-slalom course around the entire Canary Island group is a deceptive event. At first glance it seems fairly straightforward, but with a location off the coast of Africa, the regional wind systems can be extremely challenging. A late Spring event means that one can be caught up in early storm systems brewing off Africa or late storms heading back across the Atlantic from N America. This year the winds were actually quite reasonable, were we racing in reality, which means our podium three have impressed by their rise to the top of our leaderboard! Congratulations, guys!

As is his custom TheHorn has provided a prize for the winner of this race of a bottle of the local speciality rum, Guajiro and together with TheAlice has donated enough to UNICEF for 120 polio vaccines to be bought – a very generous gesture, much appreciated.

Commentary
In 2018 there will be a real race from Melbourne to Osaka. Sailonline is buddied with the race organisers and so it is that we first raced this splendid 5,500nm course in 2016, the first Prelude, and this year sees the second Prelude event with prizes from Gill, Australia. This year’s Introductory Blogpost gives all the background.

This is a superb course, and because of the weather activity around the Doldrums, early gains can often be completely lost. This year the race reports provide tremendously valuable insights into how routing can assist but also how mistaken it is to consider routing as “the answer” to success. Whether some of those participating in the real race, who registered to race with Sailonline this time, will find the experience valuable will be borne out only once the real race completes in a year’s time!

Our podium three are to be congratulated for their success – to be on the podium of a race such as this is the stuff that Sailonline dreams are made of! Well done, guys!

Chile Islands RTI Sprint 2017
Across the Canal Puyuhuapi from Puerto Cines on the Chilean mainland lies the Parque Nacional Isla Magdelena, and further west across the Canal Moraleda from Magdelena lie the islands of the Chonos Archipelago. We find ourselves in vari-charted waters here, with the mapping between physical islands and their names not 1:1 but rather some:some. It’s only 26nm but you could get lost! Good luck.
