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

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.

Yellow Sea Race 2022
There are six seas along the eastern seaboard of mainland Asia. Six seas less travelled by the racing sailor. So, here we go. Six races up and down the Asian coast, plus one in the nearest sea to the Asian mainland of the Indonesian Archipelago, to make it a mythical seven; five to count. And in no particular order, we start with a 2200nm or so race criss-cross through the Yellow Sea in ever-elegant Italia 14.98's.
