  2. Welcome to the PIC Coastal Classic Yacht Race 2020 - one of New Zealand’s iconic yacht races up the E coast of North Island, from Auckland to the harbour at Russell. Originally raced by speedboats in the 1920s, aiming at speed records, the yacht race, now a classic in it’s own right, was first conceived in the 1980s by a member of the Auckland Multihull Sailing Association who wanted to recapture the historic course. The event is, of course, now raced in classes – Multihull, Monohull and Cruising – and continues to have a wide range of prizes on offer, not just for division winners, but for

  4. 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 bet
  5. 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
  6. 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 Sailo

  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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 Doubl
  12. Hey everyone! I'm new to here, only just discovered it! My name is Reina, I'm 22 and live in Tauranga. I am free most weekends and am able to take time off work occasionally for longer trips. I love all types of ships, boats, yachts, and just about everything else you can think of that involves the ocean. I spent a year in the Royal New Zealand Navy during which time I was part of a crew that sailed the Spirit of New Zealand tall ship from Wellington to Newcastle then on to Sydney. In 2015 I spend a couple of months on the tall ship STS Young Endeavour, sailing her from Turkey thro
  13. Anyone interested in spend some time in the amazing Vanuatu and New Caledonia from the 15th August to the 26th September? (both dates are super flexible) I am Spanish currently living in New Zealand. I sailed all the way from Spain to New Zealand during five years. My wife is working in NZ at the moment and she will come to visit me the 25th September to New Caledonia. My plan is spend some more time in Vanuatu and sail to New Caledonia before this date. Meanwhile I am looking for crew with a bit of sailing experienced that want to spend some time on the tropics and share this amazing
  14. 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 sc
  15. Hi folks. I've started this thread to record what I've learnt about repairing Ferro cement. Some of the info seems to be out there but is sometimes is difficult to find..... 1. Cemex UK (sorry..I know this is a NZ forum) make a cement called 'Cemex Rugby Sulphate' which is a highly sulphate resistant blended cement. Sea water - salt - is a sulphate, so sulphate resistant is the holy grail. In Bruce Bingham's 'ferro cement - design, techniques and application', he advises using a type II cement and adding a fly ash pozzalan. Rugby sulphate cement is a type II (slower chemical reaction) a
  16. Hi, We are two friends planning to sail along the Pacific Ocean. Is a long journey and I hope this is the right place to ask questions. I would like to know first what kind of permits are we going to need for this type travel or where could we go to answer this type of questions. If anyone can give us a tip we would really appreciate it!
  17. Hello everyone, I'm looking for some people to go sailing with on a more or less regular basis. I live and work in Auckland - so I'm available during the week in the evening and most weekends. I've got 5 weeks sailing experience [2 weeks open sea between the Croatian islands and 3 weeks confined water]... so I'm not able to sail myself but at least know the basics. I'm also open to help with the boat [maintain, repair, whatever is needed] - since I like working with my hands and it can never be a bad thing to learn such stuff =)... So if you go sailing in the Auckland region and could need
