Dear SILVERRUDDER friends
Enrolment for Silverrudder 2017 has opened and after only 24 hours more than 400 participants have signed up. As opposed to 2016, no waiting list will be established in the 2017 event. Enrolment is irrevocable and start fees cannot be refunded.
Acknowledging the fact that there were some imperfections in last year’s event, the event managers have revised the Sailing Instructions and Statutes governing the Silverrudder 2017. The starting fee of Kr.1000 has not been increased, and the highly-valued finisher T-shirt is once again included.
It is our aim for 2017 that all participants, stakeholders and volunteers will be more than just satisfied with the event and the event organizers are intent on making Silverrudder 2017 a memorable experience.
The Silverrudder concept remains the same. Singlehanded around the picturesque island of Funen on the 22nd September 2017. Some important adjustments to the Sailing Instructions and Statutes have been made in order to enhance safety and service to the participants. Remember to read these carefully.
Mandatory liability insurance and sanctions for non-compliance to use navigation lights are just two of these changes. The first start will now take place at 10.00 and the race committee may postpone starts for tidal and weather reasons.
The pre-start briefing will now be held at 17.00 followed by complementary dinner allowing participants and families to enjoy each other’s company and renew friendships from the previous years.
We look forward to seeing you in Svendborg in September for the 2017 sailing event of the year, SILVERRUDDER 2017.
