The 2020 Online Race is open for entry—Practice now for 6/19 start. Sailonline.org has opened the course for practice a week ahead of the race, which begins next Friday at 1300 EDT.

There's still plenty of time if you haven't registered yet. Read on.

Step One: Register for race communications and prizes from Goslings at the Online Race Page.

Step Three: Enter the race and choose your boat:

  • Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300 (Double-Handed)

Practice: A little practice goes a long way on the water and online. Go to Sailonline.org and enter a local time-trial event staged by our favorite public-access sailing program, Sail Newport. Join their sprint around Block Island and Fishers Island to learn the basics. The Sail Newport Timed Race won't take long, either—you'll be sailing a 100-foot maxi trimarans...

You can also join the Auckland to Fiji Race, which is just getting started and will be a good chance to sail through a couple of ocean weather systems.
