Black Marlin is about 7 miles from Svendborg doing 4,2 knots and should see the current just turning to
help him into Svendborg Sound
Next boat nearest to Svendborg with 19nm to go is medium mono hull Kuai with Per Svanberg at the helm
of his Fareast 31R followed by tough Polish sailor Tomasz Obzioba in Black Caravela 9.50 19 nm from
Svendborg but only sailing 1 knot ��... followed by Firlefanz Esse 850 sailed by Silverrdder legend Franz
The Small mono hulls still has many sailors intent on getting the SILVERRUDDER T-shirt. They are bunched
up together approaching Horne Næs
Thanks to cool young sailor Nick Andersen for the great shot of Black Marlin in the sunset.
Lots of touch minis still racing... Jynx, Honk, CaBoom, Kenadama... most of these minis do not have an
engine even if they did want to quit.



Those that have raced the SILVERRUDDER know that an ice cold morning with no wind and counter current in the Little Belt can be a killer... but remember that you came here to FINISH the race and that the SILVERRUDDER family stands together. You are all in the same boat 🙂

Hang on in there drop anchor, take a nap and get set for the next breeze to carry you home


Today has been a memorable day for anyone in the sailing community in and around Svendborg. Today the SILVERRUDDER floating boat show was greater than ever. So many cool boats with so many amazing skippers all sharing tips and tricks and making final adjustments to their boats. So many skippers come to participate for different reasons, old and young. So many different nationalities. All equal members of the SILVERRUDDER family.
The skipper’s briefing went smoothly, and we greatly appreciate that absolutely everyone was wearing a mask and taking COVID-19 precautions. Thank you for helping us make the SILVERRUDDER possible.
We have decided to sail counter-clockwise with Fünen to port and hope for enough wind. First start is at 10 o’clock at Christiansminde and we expect spectators on the shore ready to share the SILVERRUDDER with us.
All the starts and highlights from the race will be live-streamed onto as well as our Facebook page SILVERRUDDER Challenge of the seas. This year we will be streaming from the water with great film footage and action.


COVID-19 precautions have forced us to prioritize the primary purpose of the SILVERRUDDER. To Race
around Funen. This means that some of the social elements of the race have been cancelled or redesigned
this year.

We may gather in the Meeting Point for the skipper briefing if everyone is seated OR you may choose to
watch the skipper briefing live on the official ‘SILVERRUDDER Challenge of the Sea’ Facebook page.
There will be no tables, no bar, and no dinner at the Meeting Point.
There will be no communal dining after the skipper meeting or breakfast Friday morning. Sailors may
collect free pre-packed dinner and free packed breakfasts.
All sailors will be given a SILVERRUDDER bracelet that they must wear if they wish to enter the Meeting
We must help each other by keeping a distance at all times.
We will avoid queues when entering or leaving the Meeting Point or when picking up food and drinks by
emptying one row of chairs at a time and in an orderly fashion.
Please follow the instructions of the SILVERRUDDER officials.
All SILVERRUDDER volunteers will be located in a separate building in the Maritime Centre.
The above precautions are necessary if we want to du what we love the most… sail the SILVERRUDDER.



03 Sept. 2020

Dear SILVERRUDDER friends and family.

The starting line this year has been moved very slightly to the west. The starting line will now consist of a starting boat at the
southern end and a hut ashore at the northern end.

A starting zone from 100 meters to the west and up to the starting line will be established in which use of engines is prohibited.

Boats may use their engines until they reach the start zone. A jury boat will be present in the starting zone.

We hope that the starting zone will help avoid unnecessary protests and hearings.
