Commentary
Sailonline was delighted to become the official virtual “buddy” for the inaugural Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race, sponsored by Lendlease and organised by Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron and what a brilliant race it was! As is now customary with RQYS races, there was a superb livestream and commentary for the start and with the real fleet brought on-screen, it was fun to observe the performance of the real yachts. Their results can be found here

SOLers flying the flags of 28 different nations took part in the race which started at 0100utc which meant that for those in Europe, unless they were dedicated enough to stay up into the early hours of the morning, they were going to have to use delay commands. The Brisbane departure is always tricky and it was clear that several racers decided to delay their start until they were awake rather than find that they had missed a mark and needing to backtrack. To do this is clearly a choice, but it is always better to start with the start of the race and if you are uncertain of your ability to set accurate DCs then simply stop your boat with a TWA=0 at point of your choosing, then when you are able to steer again, you are where you planned to be!

Our top three were clearly made of stern stuff as, all from Europe, they showed us how to race up Australia’s Gold Coast! Arriving within moments of each other, this was another brilliantly competitive event. Bravo guys!

Silverrudder 2019
Sailonline welcomes you to the fourth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2019 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape 18 be a match for the real fleet's 16 Seascape 18's?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2019

Newport to Bermuda 2019
Every even year, the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club organise a race from Newport to Bermuda, and next year's edition will be the 52nd running of the event. So, since 2019 is an odd year, SOL is hosting a virtual replica of the course and making her fleet of IMOCA 60s available for charter to all-comers. 635nm across some very unpredictable weather.
Since the death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson in San Francisco in 2013 and the subsequent founding of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in his memory, commemorated every year by a global day of sailing, known as Barts Bash in early September, a Sailonline race has also promoted this charity every year, and this year it is this race to Bermuda that is honoured to do so.
