Commentary

More than 150 boats, with plenty of North American representation, started this exciting race across Lake Superior and back. The course and prevailing breezes provided plenty of technical sailing, some long open legs, and major course decisions to be made around a number of islands including what might be the fastest night-time leg home through the Apostle Islands.

As is very common on SOL these days the racing was constantly tight and competitive, with only seconds separating the podium and a closely-bunched top 20!

In the end, WRmirekd was first over the line with rumskib and Wolff not far behind!!

Commentary

SOL last raced to Lord Howe in 2019. This island is magnificent in a Richard Attenborough sense, and all you find there after 400-odd sea miles is a shallow lagoon with 20 moorings inside a coral reef, half a dozen of which in shallow waters, maybe a hundred holiday huts and a diving support centre.

Good race to do online then in these COVID days? Well yes, but with a 16:00 utc start time and an early seamark rounding before getting out onto open water, not for Aussies who like their sleep. Nevertheless 161 SOL’ers appeared on the starting line for this iconic race.

Rest this blog to congratulate the podium, and point you in the way of two excellent reports, under the buttons above, one from Zorba777, who won the race by 12 minutes, and one from newbie Galmoli, who came in an impressive second with veteran rumskib just behind him! Well done, all!!!

Gray Whale Migration Autumn 2020 - RESULTS

Commentary
For the ninth time Sailonline’s fleet has followed the migration route of the NE Pacific gray whales and all but three of them have seen us undertake the autumn migration from the northern feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to the warm waters of the breeding grounds off Mexico. This time, we were back in our much loved 90ft Monohull which, with the Super Maxi 100, has proved the boat of choice for these migration races.

The race, hugging the coastline, like the whales, naturally divides into three sections. First, from the Bering Sea, round the chain of the Aleutian Islands to Middleton Island, second, still coast hugging to California and then an ocean run to Mexico. The marine environment was already in great danger when we raced here a year ago and, sadly, the arrival of the global pandemic has seen a huge increase in marine pollution – sights of seabirds and marine life trapped in the ear-loops of disposable masks, piles of discarded PPE in the water and washed up on shores – and the latest word that it is believed #COVID19, a mammalian virus, may well transmit to ocean mammals via direct-to-ocean sewer outflows. The message we have to pick up from this is for mankind to engage with keeping our environment as safe for our blue planet and its creatures as possible.

Congratulations go to our 2020 podium who, arriving at the front of a fleet flying the flags of 40 nations, arrived within of each other, and our winner recorded the speediest time ever for this N-S run of 12d 08h 19m, shaving 17hrs off the previous best time logged in 2016. Nicely done, guys!

Welcome to South Africa! It's the end of spring here, so let's get racing, in our brand new C2R74 sled, designed by renowned naval architect Mark Mills specifically for our 2021 virtual Cape Town to Rio Race in collaboration with the C2R Race 2023 committee, slated for early January. This 26nm sprint, conceived by stalwart SOL-ling Saffie Sebensa, takes us round or about Robben Island and then back along the teeming beaches to a finish just outside Cape Town Harbour. Eyes ahead!

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3
Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!
