SILVERRUDDER wishes you a Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Dear SILVERRUDDER Friends and Family.

2022 is just about to cross the finishing line. The eleventh SILVERRUDDER was executed successfully, and the SR crew once again thoroughly enjoyed staging this great event for you. The weather this year was a combination of almost all the other ten SILVERRUDDERs put together. This year’s race was a challenge for all of us.

2022 saw the sudden passing of Ole Ingemann Nielsen. The SILVERRUDDER is however dedicated to keep going strong in the hands of the dedicated volunteers, and we expect it to do so for many years to come. The support encountered by you, the sailors, our loyal sponsors, and the local community appears to be a perfect recipe for a sailing success. Thank you all.

May the world be inspired by the coming together friends and the brotherhood that can be achieved through our mutual love of sailing. Within the SILVERRUDDER community, you will never sail alone.

The SILVERRUDDER Team wishes you all a peaceful new year.

 Dear SILVERRUDDER Friends and Family

Thanks for making SILVERRUDDER 2022 a memorable event. We have simply loved organizing this year’s SILVERRUDDER and we are overwhelmed by the positive feedback and response that you have sent to us again. Keep it coming 😊

I imagine that 2022 will be remembered for several factors… Lars Steen’s You’ll Never Walk Alone, strong counter current in the Great Belt and Svendborg, every thinkable weather condition, Nick Andersen at 16 completing the race, the new community of women SILVERRUDDER sailors, incredible atmosphere at the harbour, the generous sponsor prizes, Chamix donating Dkr. 10000 for a party for the voluneens. The list goes on and on.

Everyone comes to the SILVERRUDDER with a smile on their face. Thanks to all of you for contributing with positive energy and your unique community spirit.

The SILVERRUDDER may have come to an end for this year, but the YNSA drug is inside all of us, and we have already started to discuss many small improvements and adjustments for 2023. The SILVERRUDDER Team will be meeting on Thursday to start the ball rolling for next year’s event.

I can reveal that on the agenda is increased focus on women and junior sailors; the next generation SILVERRUDDER Family.

The SILVERRUDDER Team will be back on the harbour with commentary, films and welcoming smiles again next year.

Please send any suggestions for improvements that you feel may improve the event… and if you feel like volunteering, please get in touch.

Once again, thanks to the volunteers and our valued sponsors for your loyalty and commitment. The face of the SILVERRUDDER is every volunteer that contributes with hours of work, laughter and comradeship in the best conceivable SILVERRUDDER Family spirit. Without them, none of our success would be possible.

On behalf of the entire SILVERRUDDER Team... YNSA

Steen, Jørn and Philip
