I'm told the safety checking team may point at one crew member and ask them to show the team a safety item. There was a concern some crews have no idea where the skipper has stashed all the safety gear, that's not on and just silly.

And any boats that next time take 2mins to find a lifejacket will be pinged. A certain R40 would have sunk before it's skipper found their jackets and he is a skipper that should know better. Lifejackets should be at hand and grab-able in a few seconds.

I actually had the lifejackets right away, it was Ziggy's harness I was hunting for! Wasn't in it's normal spot.

You weren't the only R40 out there. Is someone feeling guilty? ;) The luxury of having all that space down the Smithy, get a 930 and you'll find everything is always within arms reach :lol: :lol:

Hey, at least when you were asked where your jacklines were you didn't pick them up out of a bag on the cockpit floor and say 'Opps we forgot about those'. Said boat did have them in place by the start gun.

Safety at Sea SSANZ Triple Series 2014 - Race 3 – Evolution Sails 100

Virtual Race brought to you by Sailonline with the Young 88 Owners Association


Sailonline.org http://www.sailonline.org is pleased to announce that it is again partnering with the Shorthanded Sailing Association of New Zealand http://www.ssanz.co.nz and the Young 88 Owners Association http://www.young88.org.nz to bring the virtual version of the Evolution 100, Race 3 in the Safety at Sea SSANZ Triple Series 2014, to armchair sailors around the world.

Sailonline is a non-profit, non-commercial sail-racing navigation simulation run entirely by volunteers. All races are free and each Soler (one who sails on Sailonline) gets exactly the same boat. The challenge is navigating through the weather. Sailonline uses almost real-time weather downloaded from NOAA and the boat physics are considered to be the most life-like of any online simulation.

This challenging series is New Zealand's biggest Two Handed Series. With 3 races spaced approximately one month apart and courses to cater for all sizes of keelboat (and multihulls) SSANZ has come up with a successful formula that just gets better every year. The Safety at Sea Two Handed Triple Series is a must do event.

Sailonline will be using the polar of the very popular Young 88 as the online virtual yacht.

There are seven Y88s entered in the race and they should be able to be tracked via http://www.predictwind.com/tracker/ at this link http://forecast.pred...king/race/ssanz

Shorthaul 8Y8
Dilemma
Heaven 'n' Hell
Nijinsky
RUSH!
Sailor Moon
War Machine

Armchair sailors can pit their navigational skills against the real fleet.

Whether you are a seasoned old salt or a newbie, all are welcome and there is always someone willing to help with questions in the online race chat.

To race, armchair enthusiasts should head to Sailonline to join in the virtual race - it’s all free. http://www.sailonline.org
