Commentary
Since 2013, at least twice a year, Sailonline has been racing in association with Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in the waters of Hong Kong and the China Sea. As #COVID19 pandemic restrictions remain in place for international racing , this fun course around the islands of Hong Kong was a last minute replacement for a China Sea offshore race.

SOLer Go4iT recognised the course as one he had raced in the past, that was known as an “over-nighter” that would finish in time for an excellent breakfast at RHKYC clubhouse. For us, however, it was a brand new event that slalomed round several islands and marks requiring good concentration – more than a few racers, relying on delayed commands for mark-rounding, came seriously unstuck and had to retrace their steps, a couple more than once!

The race saw an excellent participation of boats flying the flags of 27 nations and, as you can see from the timelapse, linked below, two of our final podium were always within the top 10 from the start, while the third moved up the fleet to consolidate a top spot. It is quite striking to observe the seeming ease with which these truly competitive racers then stayed the course to secure the podium! Nicely done, guys!

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!

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!
