Strength to his family and all his friends

mate, we will miss you terribly - see you in another world

I read this with great sadness.

Your input in to SOL is greatly admired and you will be missed.

Fair winds AGage.

John Beavis - "NZL_SloopJohnB"
Logged on and see this, Monday's are never good.
Echo everyone's comments and thoughts here.
Thanks again for your comments and support AG.
I'm shocked. One window of my browser runs one of his tools with his name in the heading and the other window announces his death.
We discussed the development of his tools and Aaron was always a good advisor. He improved SOL a lot. I still can't believe the truth now.
My thoughts are with his family.

Bernd (K3)
Even though I'm on SOL vacation I go to the home-page from time to time, I even did the Tall Ships.
It is terrible to see someone leave this world so early, a talented man has left us. My thoughts are with the family.

'you'll never walk alone'
This is such sad news of AGage's passing. He will be greatly missed...

Jim
I have been stunned into silence by this tragic loss and have only just regained enough composure to honour our dear friend.

Ode To AGage

We sail to Larvik far in the north
Our hearts too heavy to stay on course
We’ve lost our friend, our mentor and sage.
The fleet seems barren without AGage

His presence is felt in all we do
Our SOLing a tribute to him we knew
His passion and talent cannot be replaced
And we honour him though our joy of each race.

Please watch over us all from your podium high
While we watch for your countenance in each cloudless sky.
The bell chimed too early for you Aaron, my friend
To your family, the deepest of sympathy we send.

May your winds always be lifting, your seas never rough
Your course always steady, your sails never luff.
You remain in our memory, a comrade and crew.
We shall cross paths again, and our friendship renew.


I miss you, mate.

I only started to admit the truth today. I'm an idiot for not telling my wife and friends as soon as I saw the search results.

I'd never seen a picture of Aaron until RC posted his profile pic, but we've maintained a continuous friendship via email... funny how modern life turns out - someone I'll never meet, yet when I said "Aaron" my partner knew it was bad just from logging me out.

The second posting kills me. We all know that the 105 pixels that define us online are meaningless. I absolutely hate that fucking clipart sailboat at the same time as being emphatically grateful that it is there.

Thank you Katrina, Jen and Indi.

Thanks Aaron.

It'll be a while before I'm around. We have unfinished business, but half of us is missing.

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!
