Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » 2023 SMPF SCHEME

THE 2023 SMPF SCHEME IS LAUNCHED!
SPONSORSHIP REQUESTS ARE WELCOMED ;)
===============================

The SMPF scheme (SYC Membership Pay Forward) will continue in 2023.

The changes to eligibility that have been introduced in 2022 have worked well , and therefore will continue as set.

At the end of 12 races in 2023 ( one each month) one annual FREE membership to the Sailonline Yacht Club will be made available to the best finishing (and fully qualifying as per rules hereunder) NON SYC member in each of the nominated races. The prize can be sponsored by any SOLer willing to do so.

The sponsors of previous editions of the SMPF scheme did either make their Sponsorship publicly known, or acted anonymously under the flag of the Sailonline Yacht Club.

The number of slots available for sponsoring one SMPF is extremely limited, as again in 2023 ONLY ONE SMPF race per month will be nominated and sponsored. If you are interested, please hurry up and contact me. By responding promptly to this invitation you will secure yourself a slot in the 2023 Sponsorship list

All you need to do at this time is to write to: coord@sailonline.org , and confirm your willingness to support the SMPF scheme in 2023. If available you will be granted one slot (one month) , and the race of that month that will be nominated for SMPF scheme will be “your SMPF race”. (Traditionally that will be the Ocean Championship race for the given month).

Some important information before you decide:

1)– Your participation to the scheme, should you want to remain anonymous, will be treated in fully confidential mode by the Coordinator and the Sailonline Nav Sim AB Board, thus there will be only three persons aware of your position in the scheme.

2)- This is by no means a solicitation to invest USD 35,00 into our platform, and you should not in any way feel obliged to adhere to the scheme.

3) The prize will be delivered to the first NON SYC MEMBER over the finish line, who had NEVER been an SYC member before. As any NON SYC member over the finish line could be the prize winner, it is recommended that the next thread hereunder is looked at after an SMPF race , as the prize winner will be announced as soon as possible after the arrival of the first boat.

4)- Should the best NON SYC member over the finish line not be eligible because lacking the requisite of point 3) above , the next in line will be identified and so on until a fully qualifying yacht is found and declared as the winner.

5)-The SYC membership earned will start AFTER the date and time of finishing the qualifying race , as the status in that race must be and remain " NON SYC "

6)- The SMPF prize will be delivered directly to the winner at the end of each nominated race, without asking for acceptance or collection. The winning SOLer will be made SYC member “ex officio” and the Management looks forward to hear from him/her sometimes after delivery.

We look forward to hearing from you and to a well supported 2023 SMPF scheme! ;)

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER.
