Commentary
There are some races that now form part of Sailonline’s annual traditions – that, over the years since the platform made it’s debut online, have inextricably bound themselves into our narrative. In Sailonline’s Racing Calendar, set alongside the series of Championships, which all generate keen competition, is a category called “Other” and it is here that you will find many gems of racing, and in April, the gem is Jakob’s Birthday BBQ Race. At first sight the course seems reasonable, but zoom in, and then Max Zoom, and you will find yourself inside Stockholm’s Archipelago with the seemingly impossible task of racing from the Revengegrundet Lighthouse to the finish in Baggensfjärden. To the newcomer to Sailonline the course is truly daunting, so many possibilities, so much to think about that there is scarcely time to think about getting a coffee. For those older hands, the course represents two things – a celebration of the birthday of the more senior of Sailonline’s two Founders and a chance to improve on previous attempts. Every year there is always a chance of doing better or, for those who have raced well, to hold on to previous laurels!

Conditions this year were good – racing Sailonline’s Linjett 33, a typical archipelago sailor, in steady not unfavourable winds, meant that it was going to be a keenly fought affair. From the start the fleet split to some extent – perhaps predicated on other at-home priorities – but it soon became clear which course should have been chosen!

This year 142 boats were registered, flying the flags of 30 nations and, while this wasn’t a record participation (our schedule was pretty full-on) there is no doubting the fierce nature of the competition - our winner arrived in 4h 49m 11s, the second fastest time for our Linjett 33, and a total of 37 boats arrived inside the next 10mins!

Many congratulations to all who completed the course and especial congratulations to our brilliant podium who managed to arrive within 6s of each other! Very well done!

Sprint Jezera 2021
Welcome back to the Dalmatian Archipelago, so named because the chart of its waters resembles the coat of 1 of the eponymous 101 hounds, with 1001 spots to enjoy a BBQ or seek shelter. It's summertime, so the chance of a cold katabatic north easterly Bora gusting down from the mountains catching you out, as you race your flashy First 27s around our triangular 20nm course, are reduced now, but you never know. To quote Iain M Banks: 'Look to Windward!'

Welcome back to virtual cruising. This time our cruise starts from Reykjavik, Iceland and after calling in at Taliisaq and Nanortaliq in Greenland, and Cartwright Harbor in Labrador, we finish at L’Anse aux Meadows Historic Site, an archaeological site that may well prove to be Leif Erikson’s 1001 AD Markland settlement, evidencing Viking arrival in N America. You may start at any time after 1700utc on 20 May, to arrive in l'Anse aux Meadows by 2300utc on 26 June.
