Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2021
Sailonline is delighted to be partnering with Point Yacht Club for the 2021 version of the South African classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. The Vasco da Gama Ocean race is Africa’s oldest ocean coastal race and over the years it has been run over courses from Maputo, Mozambique to Port Elizabeth, Durban to Port Elizabeth and Durban to East London. Because of #COVID19 restrictions the 2021 will be a wild and woolly downhill sleigh-ride along South Africa’s Wild Coast so-named because conditions along the coast are invariably wild and dangerous.
While the real fleet will be made up of several boat-types, Sailonline’s racers will be racing their Farr 38 Polar and doing their best to beat the best in the real event. It is also hoped to bring the tracks of the real yachts on-screen which not only adds to the sense of competition, but also shows how the navigators in the real fleet have to adjust to local conditions.
Sailonline’s race will start on Sunday, 16 May 2021 at 0900utc and the race will open for practice on Tuesday, 11 May, also at 0900utc.

Race 1 Leaderboard . . Race 2 Leaderboard Reports
The winds were from abeam to abaft and kind for the Bay-To-Bay races on The Great Sandy Strait again this year, and, despite the intricacies of hires UCAR/NCAR wind, online, straight lines from can to can were generally best. This put a premium on cornering skills, as emphasized in saij29’s excellent report under the button above. It is the very unusual SOLer that always gets his roundings spot on, and, year-to-year and race-to-race, it is rarely the same one, so as so often in the past, six different names decorated the podium.
This year, race 1 went to the USA’s FastPassage, and indeed, American sailors were to the fore also in race 2, the one that mattered as it was a counter towards the Sprint Championships, which was won for the second year in a row by Poland’s WRmirekd. A bleary-eyed well done, that man!

In 2013, two SOLers, JakeS and Smo, created a virtual version of a real race between the islands of the Swedish and Finnish archipelago. Contrary to the real race, which involved three overnight stops, the virtual version is a non-stop race. Both versions require incredible determination and condition from participants.
Many players, took longer or shorter tactical breaks by choosing one of the many islands. After all, everyone who finished this crazy race deserves praise and those who stood on the podium should be treated with admiration for their madness.
The difficulties of this race are evidenced by the data presented below:
151 crews joined the race and only 70 finished.
Our winner, Taffarazzi, covered the 484.7 nm route, also taking advantage of several regeneration stops in 89h 59m 26s.
TOP 10 is closed by the brewman, 15h 32m after the winner.
You will learn about the details from the submitted reports. We invite you to read.
Congratulations to all finishers. Well done podium!

144 Boats took the start of this demanding 1200 NM race in and around the Canary Islands. Relatively short stretches between waypoints didn’t promise much easy sleep and extended coastal passages required precision steering. The race became more open around the halfway point, when doldrums caused boats to spread out in different directions. But in the end it were three experienced SOLers that prevailed with WRmirekd finishing first after a little over 5.5 days of sailing. Bonknhoot took second place, about 3 minutes behind, and Sax747 completed the podium.
116 Participants reached the finish. Congratulations all!
