  1. The cherub class is getting together to get some of the old boats back on the water. There is several people in Auckland who are actively looking for a boat as-well as we are trying to identify the location of as many boats as possible. If you know of any boat either for sale or in storage can you please put the info you know about it in the comments below so we can get as many as possible back out sailing. Cheers
  2. It doesn’t seem like three years since Sailonline last joined with with SSANZ to provide a virtual version of the challenging Round North Island Race, but three years it is. All participants, real and virtual, relish the opportunity to take part in this four-leg event. In reality, those brave enough to take part, have the opportunity to pit their courage, their skills and their competitive natures in a race where they will face the swirl of the Tasman Sea winds and currents mixing with the Pacific coupled with the formidable task of navigating the Cook Strait, where these waters funnel between New Zealand’s North and South Islands. Sailonline’s virtual event uses wind grib forecasts from NOAA downloaded four times a day and released into the game in 10 minute pieces, making this a truly realistic wind navigation competition. This is Sailonline’s fourth time of racing the Virtual RNI and Leg 1, the relatively short hop from Auckland to Mangonui, will start at 0100utc on 22 February 2020 - Sailonline’s virtual version will be available for preview from 17 February and registration will open for pre-race practice on 18 February. Essential Reading The real race has a formula by which race legs will open (after the initial one) which is explained here. PLEASE NOTE: Sailonline will be competing as closely as is virtually possible with the real yachts but will at all times give a minimum of 24hrs notice of a start time. It is intended to close each leg promptly, in harmony with the real race, but there will be some allowance here. The aim is for the overlap between legs of the virtual race to not exceed 24hrs. As always, race ranking will be your position at race close for each leg. Entry List Cook Strait
  3. Welcome to the PIC Coastal Classic Yacht Race 2019. Thirty-seven years ago a member of the Auckland Multihull Sailing Association had the idea of racing from the Devonport/Orakei area of Auckland's harbour up the east coast of New Zealand's North Island, to the harbour of Russell, in the tradition of the speedboats of the 1920s. Since then the race from Auckland to Russell has become known the world over as the Coastal Classic and these days is raced in classes with a wide range of prizes on offer - for division winners, for seamanship and even for the littlest boat finishing. Sailonline is delighted to again host the virtual version of this New Zealand classic race and this year we are again racing our 60ft Trimaran, which should keep us competitive with the IRL race front-runners. The virtual race will open for practice on 21 October at 2100utc. Entrants
  4. Sailonline is delighted to be returning to Auckland, on New Zealand’s North Island. Feeling like a home-from-home, the waters of the Hauraki Gulf have, over the years, become more familiar to our virtual racers than our own home waters around the globe! For the eighth year in succession, Sailonline is looking forward to racing as the virtual partner of the Short-handed Sailing Association of New Zealand for the SSANZ Lewmar Triple Series 2019. Raced annually in the waters off Auckland, this three-race series remains the biggest two-handed sailing series in New Zealand. In 2014 Sailonline began an association with the Young 88 Owners Association and will again be racing all three events with our virtual Young 88. If any SOLers are taking part – remember to let us know and we’ll feature you in the blogpost! The three races will be raced on Sailonline on the following dates (UTC): Race 1 – Lewmar 60 Baltic --- 5 July Race 2 – Lewmar 100 Baltic ---2 August Race 3 – Lewmar 50 Baltic --- 30 August Sailonline’s first race is now open for registration and pre-race practice.

  6. 2018 sees the eighth season of Sailonline’s association with tall ships races organised by Sail Training International. This year’s racing will take us not only around Europe but also into the Far East and the Sailonline series will include all five of the scheduled races. As always we will endeavour to bring a selection of Class A ships on-screen so that we can compare our performance(s)! This is what we have in store: The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta - starting in May, two races from Liverpool, England, to Dublin, Ireland and then from Dublin to Bordeaux in France. The Tall Ships Races 2018 - two races in July – Race 1 from Sunderland, England, to Esbjerg, Denmark and Race 2 from Stavanger, Norway, to Harlingen, Netherlands. In between, the real ships will Cruise-In-Company between Esbjerg and Stavanger but shore-hugging our Class A polars is not a good idea so again this year we will be leaving the real tall ships to their meanderings! SCF Far East Tall Ships Regatta- one race starting at the end of August from Yeosu, S Korea to Vladivostock in Russia. This virtual sailing experience runs hand in hand with Sail Training International's mission - the development and education of young people through the sail training experience, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Sail Training International and Sailonline both count heavily on volunteer support with financial gain excluded from the equation. Navigating a tall ship is a remarkably challenging affair, especially if you are more familiar with modern yachts, and gives a real insight into the true nature of ocean exploration in days gone by, so why not start learning the basics today so you will be ready for your Tall Ships experience! There are four classes of Tall Ship in the real races, ranging from the biggest Class A Square Rigged ships of more than 40m in length, down to training yachts of 9.14m. Sailonline has developed performance polars based on published data for several different tall ships, and races to compete against Class A ships. Sailonline's first race will open for practice on Sunday, 20 May.
  7. After two years of 'practice', Sailonline.org is pleased to team up with the organisers of the Sundance Marine Melbourne Osaka Cup 2018 Double Handed Yacht Race to bring the virtual version of the race to armchair navigators around the world. Time to race against the real fleet. The Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race is a 5,500 nautical mile 2 handed yacht race - one of the longest two handed yacht races in the world and the only one running from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. It encounters multiple weather systems and seasons as it crosses the Pacific ocean. The course takes the competitors into Bass Strait, up the east coast of Australia into the southeast tradewinds then through the doldrums on the equator. It then heads into the northeast tradewinds to the finish in the port of Osaka. The race, first held in 1987 to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the opening of the Port of Osaka, is held approx. every four years to celebrate the City of Melbourne and the City of Osaka sister city relationship. The 2018 event coincides with the 40th anniversary of this relationship and is a collaborative effort of three yacht clubs: Sandringham Yacht Club - the Melbourne Host Ocean Racing Club of Victoria - administering the on-water activities, & Osaka Hokko Yacht Club - the Osaka Host For the virtual Sundance Marine Melbourne Osaka Cup 2018, Sailonline will be using the polar of a Jeanneau Sunfast 3600 yacht. There are three Sunfast 3600s entered in the main fleet starting on Sunday, March 25th including 'Kraken', 'Mister Lucky' and 'Maverick' sailed by Sailonline regular Rod 'Roddo' Smallman. The Sailonline race is now open for pre-race practice to enable everyone, especially newcomers, to learn the ropes in time to be competitive. Gill Australia has, once again, generously donated prizes for the placegetters in the Sailonline.org Virtual Melbourne to Osaka 2018. Prizes will be from the Gill Official Event Merchandise. Details to follow.
  8. Once a year for the past seven years around the date of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (19 September) a Piratical frenzy overtakes SOLers. Racing a modern yacht polar we change our names, start speaking pirate lingo and race around the islands of the Caribbean during hurricane season while visiting several of the amazing rum distilleries of the region in our Carib Rum Run PRIZE Race. It is tremendous fun and while our navsim skills may not improve that much during the course of the event, our ability to talk like a pirate surely does! Sailonline's race this year starts on 13 September at 1000utc and will open shortly for pre-race practice. Since the death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson in San Francisco in 2013 and the subsequent founding of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in his memory, commemorated every year by a global day of sailing, known as Barts Bash in early September, we also promote this sailing charity during this race. Bart's Bash has just announced that funds raised this year will go towards projects in the Caribbean islands recently devastated by extreme weather. The Carib Rum Run is always a PRIZE race and this year there are two prizes. 1. To the race winner will go a Nauticalia replica of Captain Cook’s Chart Magnifier, donated by RainbowChaser: 2. To the first non-SYC member to finish will go the prize of a one-year membership of SYC sponsored by the Sailonline Yacht Club under this year’s SYC Membership Pay Forward scheme (anyone interested in being a sponsor in this wonderful scheme please contact coord@sailonline.org). JOIN THE SYC TO RACE WITH A PIRATE NAME SYC Members only may change or modify their SOL boatname to something more piratical for the duration of this race! All info is here. Such a boatname change for this one race will not change your login credentials or affect your SYC rankings. You may, of course, join SYC at any time before race finish!

  9. AHOY ALL yachties and erstwhile sailors.... Sailonline is about to host a virtual version of a race that it is associated with in reality and which will race, in reality, next year from Melbourne to Osaka. Sailonline has been linked with this upcoming 2018 event since early 2016 and, as you can see, this time our marketing guy in Australia has bagged the podium three some prizes from Gill Australia. This could be an awesome race, so please do all spread the word! Here's the full info: Sailonline.org is pleased to team with the organising authority of the Melbourne to Osaka Double-Handed Yacht Race 2018 to bring to prospective entrants and armchair navigators, our 2017 'Prelude 2' of the real race. The lucky podium place-takers of the Sailonline virtual race will each win a prize supplied by Gill Australia as follows: 1st – Race Trainer 2nd - Race Dry Bag 3rd - UV Tech Polo ​ With Sailonline's almost real time weather downloads from NOAA, this is intended to give prospective entrants in the real race a great opportunity to test their weather navigation skills. The 'Prelude' is timed to run at the same time of the year as the real race so weather patterns may be similar. The Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race is a 5,500 nautical mile 2 handed yacht race - one of the longest two handed yacht races in the world and the only one running from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. It encounters multiple weather systems and seasons as it crosses the Pacific ocean. The course takes the competitors into Bass Strait, up the east coast of Australia into the southeast tradewinds then through the doldrums on the equator.

The 2018 event coincides with the 40th anniversary of this relationship and is a collaborative effort of three yacht clubs: Sandringham Yacht Club - the Melbourne Host Ocean Racing Club of Victoria - administering the on-water activities, and Osaka Hokko Yacht Club - the Osaka Host For the virtual 2017 M2O Prelude 2, Sailonline will be using the polar of a Class 40 yacht. Melbourne yacht 'Lord Jiminy' is a Class 40 and is already entered in the 2018 event. 'Lord Jiminy' and 'Nexba' are the 2 currently entered Class 40 yachts but two more are expected to enter the race. The Sailonline race opened for pre-race practice at 2200utc on 28 March 2017 and the race itself starts on 1 April at 2200utc.
  10. I am looking for one or two committed members to join my crew for the RNZYS winter series. The dates are: May 7 and 21 June 18 July 2, 16, 30 Aug 13 and 27 Sep 10 Nomos is a 40ft Catalina yacht. Not a racing machine but a well equipped and fun boat to sail. We are a really social and international crew, get along really well, and go out to have fun and learn together. If interested please call 021 472 111. Looking forward to having you on board.
  11. 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!
  12. Hello sailors, I recently bought a share in a 40ft Catalina, Nomos, and sailed her up from Wellington to Auckland. Now I need you to help me race her! Based in Westhaven Nomos is a cruiser-racer, well equipped and in good condition. She's not a racing machine, but she sails really well, is comfortable and with a good crew she can win. If you have some racing experience, want to race for fun and make new friends please join me! I am looking at racing on Saturdays from the RNZYS and would be open to mid-week racing. I will ask for a participation of $25 to a crew fund to keep her going. And if we get along well I would love you to join me for some cruising over the summer to make the most of our beautiful environment! Drop me a line if interested!
