The Vineyard

This Labor Day weekend (31 August - 2 September) the Stamford Yacht Club, Connecticut, USA, will be welcoming Sailonline back for the 85th running of the 238-mile Vineyard Race. This will be the 10th Virtual Vineyard Race - a decennary year! The course can be challenging, with conditions in Long Island Sound strongly influenced by weather systems rolling up the US East Coast and by the strong tidal currents up and down the sound.

For the 5th year in a row, we anticipate to be able to race online with the WRF wind model which gives a wx system grid as dense as 0.05 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, as always, race the polar of the Santa Cruz 52, a design almost as famous and venerable as the race itself.

Sailonline’s race has already opened for pre-race practice and will start with the real Vineyard fleet on the 30th August at 1700utc.

Aden to Goa 2019 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard

Another new-to-Sailonline ocean race, this time replicating (in reverse) one of the historical sailing routes for ships running the Spice Trade routes from Goa, India, to Aden, Yemen. The first ocean-going vessels that developed this trade were thought to be outriggers and catamarans constructed by the peoples from “Austronesia” (the islands of south east Asia), bringing spices not only to the Indian sub-continent but also on to the Middle East where the products were then transferred to camels, aka ships of the desert. Do read the Wiki article – it is utterly fascinating and perhaps gives Sailonline a chance to develop more races retracing the routes of the traditional trade routes.

Our Sunfast 3600s were a fun choice for such a race – first used by Sailonline to match with SOLer Roddo in the Sundance Marine Melbourne Osaka Cup 2018 Double Handed Yacht Race where they proved themselves to be a stout ocean-going option. With a fleet flying the flags of 37 nations, this was one of the most globally-participated of our races for some time, and at a time when climate change is altering traditional winds and currents, we all found ourselves surprised by a fairly straightforward race once into the Arabian Sea. Traditionally, the winds have been better W-E but in 2019 after some initial swirl after the Aden departure and until we were clear of of the influence of the Horn of Africa, it was a pretty clean run to the finish for everyone!

Our podium three are to be congratulated for their success – with seconds between 1st and 2nd and a few more between 2nd and 3rd, they found themselves minutes ahead of their nearest competition. Nicely done, guys!

The Vineyard Race 2019
For the 10th year in a row, Long Island's Stamford Yacht Club has invited all SOLers to participate virtually in their iconic annual 250nm overnighter from their club line out the sound to Buzzard's Bay Light near Martha's Vineyard Island and back again, leaving Block Island to starboard. As always, Sailonline is making the ideally-suited-to-these-waters, Santa Cruz 52 available to competitors, and an SC52 or two should be out in the real life fleet as well, to test your skills against. Be sure to be there!

Aden to Goa 2019
Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
