Sailonline's Race Committee has now published the exciting Q2 Racing Calendar and, going from strength to strength, there are some exciting buddy-ups, where Sailonline is the non-commercial virtual partner with real racing organisations - including the Rolex China Sea Race (Royal Hong Kong YC), the Melbourne to Osaka Prelude race (Ocean Racing Club of Victoria), racing a Viking Longship, Draken Harald Hårfagre, on her way to N America, Sail Fiji and racing off San Diego in the SoCal300.
For many of these races Sailonline brings the live track of the real boats on to the virtual racing screen, and by choosing to sail a polar with a performance similar to one/some of the real fleet, the challenge of wind navigation becomes a truly realistic competition.
If you haven't already checked out Sailonline, and if you want to hone your wind navigation skills, both manual and using a router, this is definitely the place to do it. Sailonline remains free to play.
See you racing!
