Page: 1 2 3 Next




AHOY THERE YE ERRANT KNOTTY PATED MINNOWS!!!


On 10 September at 1700utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver what remains of their contents to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to Bart's Bash and this year several days before International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

All SYC Members are hereby invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

If you are a paid-up SYC Member or if you join SYC during the Carib Rum Run you may request a change your usual Sailonline boatname just in this one race to one of your piratical preference! Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name! You may pre-request a name in advance of the race opening for practice.

PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW before submitting a request so that you don't ask for 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, as always, I will be endeavouring to change boatnames as efficiently as possible!

REMINDER: you may join SYC and, once your burgee is visible, request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

Fun idea!
Since I will be flying under Greek pirate flag I had to do some research.
I would like to take the name "LimperrrRakis".

With a wink to one of the most famous Greek pirates: Limberakis, who was so evil that he caused half of the people in his province to flee all the way to Corsica :)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limberakis_Gerakaris

that be new info fer us - ye be mighty welcome O Limp one arrrr

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024


Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
