The Vineyard Race 2016

Over Labor Day weekend (2-5 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 82nd running of the 238-mile Vineyard Race. This will be the seventh Virtual Vineyard race. The course can be challenging, with the waters in Long Island Sound held hostage by conditions in the wider Atlantic and the resulting strong tidal currents. For the second year, racers on Sailonline will be racing with the WRF wind model which gives a wx system grid as dense as 0.01 degrees! Sailonline will sail the full Vineyard course irrespective of real-world weather conditions which, on occasion, can require the real fleet to race within the Sound. Sailonline will again be using the polar of the Santa Cruz 52 and racing against 'Magic' in the real race.

Stamford Yacht Club has announced that it will be awarding a 2016 Vineyard Race Mount Gay Rum baseball cap to each of the Sailonline podium.

Sailonline’s race will be opening shortly for pre-race practice and will start with the real Vineyard fleet on 2 September 2016 at 1600utc.

Race Info

Since the first Vineyard Race in 1932 there have been many celebrated entrants - the record time for the race remains that set in 2007 by Stamford Yacht Club's Reichel/Pugh 66, Blue Yankee, of 20h 20m 15s.

Palermo-Montecarlo Race 2016 - RESULTS & REPORTS

Race Leaderboard

For some reason Sailonline doesn’t always race this classic Mediterranean race from Palermo to Monte Carlo at the same time as the real race. Perhaps we should race it in advance some years to give everyone a flavour of the glitz and glamour of this very special European yachting event! Sailonline’s race, replicating the real course, is traditionally raced in a Class 40 as this is representative of many of the participants in reality. Winds this year were typically fickle for this bowl-shaped sea, and the choice of routing after the first mark offshore Sardinia was pretty crucial for many. Some, of course, chose to bbq and enjoy the beautiful beaches and views of the Med!

Congratulations to our podium – good to see our Italian SOLers being given some competition here after a clean sweep in 2015! With mere seconds between our top three, this was an impressive finish! Nicely done guys!

Race Leaderboard

This was the third of the four races in Sailonline’s Corporate Open Gold Championship and it is clear that this new style race, with only the starting date and time known well in advance but the course being chosen at the last moment, is a fun event. For fairness, start times have been evenly placed around the 24hrs available, so this, too, is causing some discussion.

The venue chosen for this race was a Finnish lake and one of Sailonline’s earlier courses – first raced in in 2008 and then brought out of the archives in 2014 this is a clever course which brought out the best in those racing. Congratulations to our splendid podium who fought off tough opposition to gain the top three spots! Bravo guys – to be first among 15 boats arriving in the first three minutes was impressive!
