LISTEN UP YE RUM SOAKED SCURVY MAGGOTS!!!



In September Sailonline will once more be racing to bring rum from the Carib to Mexico and all SYC Members are invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

This is an annual affair, run in close proximity to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

It is now tradition that paid-up SYC Members may change their normal SOL boatnames just within this one race to one influenced by all things piratical! You are free to choose any name you like but remember, Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve right to disallow names we think are inappropriate.

All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread and will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.

PLEASE DO CHECK THE 2014 LIST below before submitting a request to ensure that you aren't requesting a name already taken by someone else before you!

Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

Once the race opens in September, I will change the boatnames as efficiently as possible!

NOTE: you may join SYC and request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run, but your SYC member must valid/current for the duration of the race!

Captain Haddock

"Grips the hammock netting and pulls himself carefully up the side of the good ship Jawz. He doffs his cap in acknowledgement of the bosuns pipes and places his wooden left leg forward one pace to balance himself against the roll of the deck....

....Only to wedge it in a knothole. 'Avast with the Doctors handsaw maties!' he shouts.

And there he shall remain for the rest of this voyage!!"


that be how I sail on SOL, me laddo (it seems)

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
