4 July 2022

Welcome to Sailonline’s Tall Ships racing in Europe 2022 for the 12th consecutive season in association with Sail Training International. With the global pandemic being managed as safely as possible, we have tall ships racing in reality this year (always subject, of course, to the vagaries of #COVID19) so we are delighted to find ourselves once more racing against the best of the best in the real tall ships world.

The two races, comprising a Sailonline mini-series, will be:

1. The Tall Ships Races 2022 - Race 1 – Esbjerg to Harlingen
2. The Tall Ships Races 2022 - Race 2 – Antwerp to Aalborg

You may wonder what happens between Harlingen and Antwerp – well, the real ships and crews are “cruising in company”, which is tall-ship speak for swapping crews for shared experience and competition and dropping into selected local ports. Sailonline has the luxury of having its virtual Clippers magically moved from the finish of Race 1 to the start of Race 2!

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.

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 usually races to compete against real Class A ships. If you are more accustomed to sailing, or not at all, the experience of racing a Tall Ship with its hugely tricky windward performance is truly challenging so the sooner you register to race on Sailonline and learn the technical basics of how to navigate and steer any boat, the better you will be when we start our Tall Ships racing for 2022 later this week!

Stockholm to St. Petersburg - 2023
Welcome to Stockholm - are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St. Petersburg? The Gulf of Finland is still ice-free so board your Club Swan 50’s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine may need to be avoided but if you keep a good lookout you should soon be docking at the home of the world-renowned Hermitage Museum!

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
