Reports

Commentary

In the final sprint of Q2 65 boats registered and 55 departed. After nearly 7 hours it was another tight finish with CollegeFund just nipping ALP317 by 6 seconds. By some miracle, for a sprint, ita10267 managed to have a BBQ and still capture the P3 podium position by 7 seconds ahead of eventual Q2 sprint champion sassy63. Aggressive sailing for sure, cornering was key in this new RTI course.

To close out Q2 rankings sassy63 managed first position followed by FreyjaUSA and Siaki who all finished in sequence 4th, 5th, 6th in Nuuk. Well done. With half 2024 sprints now complete FreyjaUSA holds the lead with 30 pts ahead of CollegeFund (52 pts) and HoratioPugwash (97 pts), followed by sassy63 closing in with 104 pts. Time to rest before the Q3 sprints begin.

Newport Bermuda Race 2024


On-Line Race starts Friday 21st June at 1705 UTC

Sailonline is honored and delighted to once again be the partner for the Bermuda Race Organizing Committee ( BROC – made up of the Cruising Club of America and Royal Bermuda Yacht Club ) running of the famous Newport Bermuda Race. So, if you cannot make it out onto the real water for this epic event, here is your chance to compete with both real and online sailors in virtual reality on sailonline.org. Also if you’re sitting on your sofa, rather than draped over the rail of your owner’s yacht, take a moment to view the Starting Line Live Show that will stream on youtube.

The very first Bermuda Race was held in 1906 when the general view was that it would be insane for amateur sailors to race offshore in boats under 80 feet. Thomas Fleming Day, editor of ‘The Rudder’ magazine, vehemently disagreed, insisting, “The danger of the sea for generations has been preached by the ignorant.” Certain that an ocean race would be enjoyable and safe, and would also develop better sailors and better boats, the Newport Bermuda Race was born.

Since 1906, more than 50,000 men and women of all ages and 5,000 yachts have sailed in this unique race that is known and respected worldwide as “The Thrash to the Onion Patch”. Also, the race takes some credit for the formation of the Fastnet Race, for accelerating the career of famed designer Olin Stephens and for the development of new rating rules.

One of the unique features of Sailonline is the ability to run different yacht polars in the same race, and as the Bermuda Race has traditionally been conducted in four major divisions, we will be doing the same in this year’s virtual Newport Bermuda 2024.

Participants can choose one of the following when registering for the online race:

Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division
Judel Vrolijk 62

St. Davids Lighthouse Division
Santa Cruz 52

Finisterre Cruising Division
Riptide 50

Double-Handed Division
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3600

For more information about each yacht and a view of their polar diagrams, please click on a yacht type name.

Sailonline's virtual Bermuda Race will open for pre-race practice on Friday 14th June at 2300 UTC.

AWKR 2024 - RESULTS

GRATULACJE WRmirekd !!!
CONGRATULATIONS FreyjaUSA !! FELICITATIONS ALP317 !

Race Leaderboard

Commentary

It took our best SOLers slightly more than 13 hours to get round our imaginary c 70nm maximised triangular course on Port Phillip Bay in their Sun Fast 3000 virtual yachts. In-real-life, a mixed fleet of mostly international J24s and locally popular S80s, 15 all-female teams in total, spent perhaps half that time racing five shorter courses, but undoubtedly many, many more hours getting afloat, exploring the course area, and in the bars and restaurants ashore.

In-real life, there were different winners, with three different handicapping systems being applied. Online, it is absolute one-design, to as many places behind the comma/point that you care to go, and this is reflected in the winning margins, which this time was 13 seconds for WRmirekd. Always quick that Mirek!

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024 - RESULTS

Commentary

Some time ago now, we completed our circumnavigation of Antarctica, at the same time marking the halfway stage of our 6-leg High Latitude Series. This Leg 3 from Germany's Nuemayer Station back to Britain's Biscoe Wharf where we had first started our circuit around the poorly charted Antarctican coast and through the often unpredictable winds, like the earlier legs, proved to once again be very interesting and challenging.

Particularly on the last stretch south west down the peninsular Antarctican archipelago, from Argentina's General Bernardo O'Higgins Station to the finish, the best route through the confusion varied from forecast to forecast and safe BBQ-free navigation was also difficult to achieve.

But someone had to win, and sailing that final stretch cautiously, it was ita10267, currently on a fine vein of form, who, having built up a handy lead at Belgrano, took the gun. Bravissimo, maestro!
