Reports

Commentary

Again this year, the COVID19 pandemic thwarted the organizational plans of Sail Training International, the main organizer of the annual 'Real-World' Tall Ships Races, whose virtual partner we are. To the great disappointment of the sailing world, in the end, all races were cancelled and the task of keeping the spirits of the crews of big sailing ships up rested on our virtual races. We raced all 7, with an average of 127 skippers in command of our virtual Clipper 240 and Barque 90m vessels. Each of the planned races turned out to be very interesting. The Chat records testify to this. Changes in forecast wind directions required fox-wits and a sixth sense. It was a very demanding series of races, virtual but in an atmosphere of friendship, fun and mutual understanding.

The adopted scoring formula for the 6 best out of 7 races held meant that until the last race from Lisbon to Cadiz it was difficult to predict places on the podium. The unsuccessful last race by the favourites bonknhoot and Sax747 caused a lot of confusion in the final classification. Three skippers scored the same number of points and were contenders for second place. In the end, bonknhoot was the winner and Sax747 and Olev took the next podiums. WRmirekd finished first on the rug behind the podium 😊. You can read about what happened at the various stages of the individual races in the wonderful report written by the winner of this year's series, bonknhoot. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all participants for great fun.
We sincerely hope that Sail Training International will be able to return to hosting these beautiful Tall Ships Races again in 2022.

Illas Cies Sprint 2021
It is 550nm from Dingle to Vigo, and from Pensacola to Yucatan as well, but at the mouth of Vigo's Ria we find the wonderful nature reserve of the Cies Islands, breeding ground for more than 20,000 doubly-blessed seagulls, doubly-blessed as Vigo is also home to Europe's largest fishing fleet. It rains even more in Vigo than in Dingle, and especially in winter, but let's race anyway, from Vigo's glorious old-world Real Club Nautic around the islands and up the Ria de Pontevedra to Combarro, where you may just espy through the fog bonknhoot's Damacle wintering ashore. About 32nm in magnificent Melges 40s.

Gray Whale Migration 2021
As temperatures begin to drop in the northern hemisphere, Eastern Pacific Gray Whales, who have spent the summer months in the nutrient rich feeding grounds of the Bering Sea, begin to make their way south to their winter home in the warm conditions off the coast of Mexico. We will be joining them for their 3,886nm migration in our 90ft monohull.

Return from Lindisfarne 2021
Having re-enacted the Swedish Vikings raid on Lindisfarne of 793 AD earlier this month, we must now return. The good land, the (slightly) shorter winters and the comely Saxon maidens tempted our predecessors to linger, but we may not stay and must cross the North Sea before the weather breaks. Fair winds, oh Njord, we pray of you, for our longships on this 465nm voyage.
