Svendborg Amatør Sejlklub and the SILVERRUDDER TEAM wishes to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a merry Christmas 2018 and a happy New Year 2019.

The SILVERRUDDER Challenge is in many aspects a lot like Christmas Eve. It takes enormous amounts of planning and preparation. No details may be overlooked. Some of us even travel huge distances to participate in the year’s festivities. We meet with our loved ones, friends and sailing family and enjoy a few intense days enjoying each other’s good company and exchange tales of the months that have passed since we last met. For many of us, we will only meet on this one special occasion each year. Suddenly, it all comes to an abrupt end in one great exchange of gifts or finisher T-shirts. Some of us are fortunate enough to get the gift we longed for all year, and some of us will have to try again next year.

The SILVERRUDDER team have gone into winter mode, but not hibernation. The team is busy preparing for next year’s major sailing event and some of us spend our evenings in the basements inventing minor improvements that will make our boats just a little faster or better suited for single-handed sailing when the season starts in the New Year. In the same manner, based on lessons learned this year, we also look forward to implementing a few minor improvements to the race next year. Improvements that will enhance your safety without compromising the simplicity or spirit of the race.

The overwhelming enthusiasm surrounding this event so far makes preparing the event rewarding for us. We promise to do our utmost to make the 2019 SILVERRUDDER - CHALLENGE OF THE SEA a memorable and safe event for all participants, family, volunteers and stakeholders. We hope that you will utilize the time leading up to the event preparing your boats and yourselves, mentally and physically for this personal challenge against the elements and your competitors, and always thinking prudent seamanship and “safety first”.

We can hardly wait to see you all in Svendborg on 20th. September 2019 for the SILVERRUDDER - CHALLENGE OF THE SEA

Remember that sale starts on Sunday 24th. March 2019 at 17.00 CET – FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS

Our best seasons greetings
Svendborg Amatør Sejlklub and SILVERRUDDER TEAM
