Commentary
It really does seem as if Sailonline is now becoming almost as familiar with the waters off the SE coast of Australia as it is with those off Auckland, New Zealand! Crossing the Bass Strait has a real familiarity about it now, which is truly wonderful, when you consider that the vast majority of SOLers have yet to set keel in Australian waters! Racing our Tasman Double brings with the double-header competition a real sense of reality – all boats that race so furiously to Hobart from Sydney need to get home again. OK, so perhaps some spend time in Hobart and then cruise home, wherever that is, in their own time, but it is certainly probable that many will head back to Sydney. That Sailonline makes a race of it is simply our nature! The only time you can guarantee to sight-see and stooge around is during the pre-race practice period (unless of course you join in the semi-official pre-race practice races close to race start in each fleet race!), so for us the race back to Sydney is just as crucial as the race to Hobart.

To achieve a spot on our two-header/mini-series podium is really excellent. Many SOLers barely get a sniff at a podium in a single race, but to accomplish this in a mini-series against several top SOLers who perhaps only race in our “classics” these days is very well done indeed. The honours this year go to Brazil, Canada and Australia. Nicely done!

Commentary
For the real racers who have taken part in the epic Sydney to Hobart race, they and their boats head home to different parts of the globe to prepare for future campaigns. For SOLers, however, ferrying our chosen boats back to Sydney has become a tradition. The competition for this race, starting just after the New Year, is just as fierce as ever for some, while others take a more relaxed approach to their departure from Hobart with a general south-ish, then east then north approach to their strategy! Like all SOL races, though, however you approach the event, it is fun for everyone and wherever you are in the starting line-up you can find someone to publicly or secretly matchrace against. There is always something quietly pleasing about winning even a minor match and a quick scan of the leaderboard shows racers duking each other out throughout the finish – some examples are the 4 second gap between 5 (Zoe) and 6 (psail), the one second gap at 15 (TheHorn) and 16 (rafa), and a five second gap between daisy (67) and Musigny (68)!

Our podium three this time includes two racers who took podium honours in Race 1 which is very impressive – consistently to outperform the keen competition on Sailonline is not that common! Many congratulations guys!

Rio In-Port TIMED Race 2018
Many years ago, when the Volvo Round-The-World yachts were 70 foot long and not restricted much in any other way, SOL organized their own little round-the-cans race outside the harbour of Rio de Janeiro. To start our 2018 series of TIMEDRUNS , we are setting those cans out again for you, and this time they will stay in the water for 20 days for all comers to try as often as they wish to set a best time. We won’t be racing a VO70 though, but the slightly more sedate X35, which, given that the course is some 80nm in length, will mean you will be confronted by a change of forecast or two during your runs. You’ll have to take a view!
