26.10.2017: How to register for SILVERRUDDER 2018
Registration Form
Your full name including first name and family name must be included as these are used for identification reference.

Include a valid E-mail address so that we are able to communicate with you.

Remember to add the mobile/cell phone number that you intend to use during the race. Changes to this number must be e-mailed to Silverrudder Team  as soon as possible.

You must write your mainsails sail logo and/or number. This is our means of identifying your boat during starts and if your start number fall off your hull. In the registration form, you may temporarily write ’tdb’ if you do not know your sail logo/number at the time of registration. As no boat may start the race without this, you are required to notify the Race Committee as soon as you have the sail logo and or number.

When paying your starting fee (€ 150 or DKr. 1.100), make sure to include your full name in the bank transfer information. Only one boat may be registered per payment.

Your participation cannot be guaranteed until your starting fee has been received in our bank account. You will, however be temporarily registered in the list of participants in the order of your registration until any problem with your bank transfer has been solved.

If in doubt as to the loa (length overall) of your boat in feet and inches, we advise that you write the loa in millimeters in the Message box of the registration form.

We hope that this information will facilitate your registration.

Kind regards
SILVERRUDDER TEAM and Svendborg Amatør Sejlklub

30.09.2017: Sailonline and the team of SOLers embedded with SASC for the duration of the race would like to express their gratitude for such a wonderful opportunity to participate, live and in person, in Svendborg during this event.
Who could have imagined that this, only our second buddy-up with Svendborg Amatør Sailing Club (SASC) for the Silverrudder "Challenge of the Sea" 2017 , would turn out to be such a wonderful opportunity for Sailonline, with a team of SOLers embedded with SASC for the duration of the race. As a consequence, Sailonline enjoyed tremendous exposure in a TV-interview with Danish TV2 as well as in the last part of the Prize Giving Ceremony , while in the virtual race 171 registered boats took part, flying the flags of 37 different nations. The winning X-99 in the real fleet, skippered by Jan-Hendrick Franzen, was presented with a Sailonline baseball cap, together with a certificate of participation.
Kind regards
