2021 Q1 SRC Review

Having begun the New Year, SOLers were looking forward to a new virtual season out on the water. With this quarter offering more open water racing than previously, as requested by our sailors, they were rewarded with fairly decent winds on the Ocean Races (Cape Town to Rio, Wellington to Lima. Lanzarote to Grenada and Sao Vicente to Colon) whilst the more coastal races encountered far lighter or more fickle winds (Shetland Winter (aka Up Helly Aa), Naples Triangle, Bora, Bangkok to Singapore and Singapore to Ko Tapu).

Fortunately, SRC had provided fast boats for these lighter wind races enabling some speed to be maintained but also permitting the more slippery competitors to escape the pack. SRC has to choose courses and boats up to three and a half months in advance of Wx forecasts, so please be tolerant.

Now moving on to the Quarterly Series winners continue here

    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!
    RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run.

    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!
