28 January 2021


It is 2021 and for a year now, the world has been trying to defeat, or at least manage the #COVID19 pandemic, but the sad truth is that many countries remain at some form of lockdown or curtailment of activity, and sailing has been hit hard. Sailonline was therefore delighted to receive an enquiry from the prestigious Cruising Club of America (CCA) as to the possibility of creating a trio of delivery races, requiring tailored boat polars to reflect the motoring, as well as sailing, nature of the delivery experience.

Never baulking at a challenge, Sailonline’s team of volunteers in cooperation with CCA, created two new cruising polars, Santa Cruise 52 and Passport Cruise 40 and three delivery cruise-races, in which participants may select whichever polar they prefer, as follows:

8 February - CCA Delivery Cruise 1 2021 - Sandwich MA to Halifax NS
6 March - CCA Delivery Cruise 2N 2021 - Halifax NS to Clarenville (leaving Newfoundland to Starboard)
10 March - CCA Delivery Cruise 2S 2021 - Halifax NS to Clarenville (leaving Newfoundland to Port)

Please note that each virtual delivery cruise is designed to permit crews to choose when to start and when or if to anchor, for example, in sheltered harbors for storm avoidance, or management of storm conditions when in reality a Jordan Series Drogue would be deployed. Anchoring is subject to a maximum of 48hrs. If Sailonline’s server considers the skipper/boat to have been idle for that period of time, then the boat will be teleported back to the start (imagine a Skycrane!), but a TWA=0 (head to wind) command will reset this time limit. Just as in reality CCA skippers keep a deck log, those participating in these virtual delivery cruises are invited to do the same in respect of anchoring – you need to note the UTC date and time of deploying and of recovering the anchor or JSD to allow correction of elapsed times, so optimal cruising performance can be recognised. Sailonline racers who wish to race as usual may, of course, do so, but learning the art of delivery cruising is perhaps more of a challenge for our speedsters!
