Hi all ;)

We at ITA_2011 have a small gift for you all . ;)

Gilles and I promised to ourselves that if we won the Tall ship race steering the Italian Navy Amerigo Vespucci school ship we would have tried to post a couple of pictures taken last year in fall in Venice , when Gil and I met and visited the Vespucci together . One of the pics shows Gil and I in front of the steering room , that we used succesfully during the past 48 hours ;) ;)
Andrea , aka ita10267 , was not with us in Venice , so we will pretend that when the pic was taken he was in the planning room depicting our race strategy . Antonio , aka ghibli and invaluable fourth member of team Italy was on leave this time , so we will pretend that he was permanently in the cellar drinking his usual tons of beer ;););)

Enjoy ! ..;) ;) ;)

see you all in the next tall ships race leg. ;)

More info about Tall Ships Races finish procedure:

It is that if a vessel has not crossed the Finish Line (FL) by the time of the Time Limit, it submits its distance from the FL at the Time Limit. A Corrected Time is calculated for it and it has a place in the results list. (On several occasions the race has been won by a ship that never ever crossed the finish line.)

What happens is shown in paragraph 32.3
of Racing & Sailing Rules

The reason for this is based on the fact that the young crews who, in some cases, may have raced across the Atlantic Ocean or some similar distance, really don’t want to see just “Did Not Finish’ in the Results List after all their efforts. The formula was invented by a young crew member in one of our races in 1976 (a trans-Atlantic race).

For the current race the Time Limits are: 201900Z July, 201930Z July, 201945Z July & 202000Z July

Final handicapped results:

TCF (final)
AL	1.0000
AS	1.1927
B 	1.2555
C 	1.1991			
D 	1.0424

For complete results (to date) please see attached spreadsheet. The slower boats did end up taking a hit with rapidly fading wind at the finish. Reminds me of IRL.

Great work.
And interesting too.

Antonio (zero)
and now... the Cruise in Company!!!

remember to check out the brochure

Each Guest Harbour has its own series of events organised so once we spot a ship in port on AIS we can, hopefully, find a webcam to view it!! :-D

I don't have complete weather for this race, but this should still be much closer than we'd get IRL.

Remember to check out the first post in this thread for Useful Links!! :-)

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

CA 500 2024

In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2024

Join us at Sailonline for a thrilling adventure in the 2024 Vasco da Gama Ocean Race! This event is the most prestigious and longstanding international sailing competition in South Africa, offering a unique journey steeped in history. Traditionally setting sail from the picturesque bay of Maputo, Mozambique's enchanting old Portuguese colonial capital, the race has charted a new course in recent years. This edition will see competitors navigating a challenging 250-nautical-mile course from Durban to East London. Adding to the excitement, this year our SOLers will harness the speed and power of our fleet of Carkeek 40s!

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!

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!
