Countdown to SILVERRUDDER 2018
This week has seen the first boats arrive in and around Svendborg harbour in preparation for the SILVERRUDDER challenge 2018. One local sailor met a German single-handed sailor on his way around Funen carefully studying the challenging passages through Svendborg Sound and the Little Belt.
With less than two weeks to go participants are readying themselves and their boats. Some of you have posted nautical charts and weather maps on the SILVERRUDDER Facebook site others have actively taken part in some of the debates. We all enjoy the input and assure you that the SILVERRUDDER volunteers are doing their utmost to make this year’s event a memorable one.
We urge participants to spend the final days checking safety equipment, navigation lights and pyrotechnics so that our safety checks may be conducted as smoothly as possible. All participating boats must have a valid third-party liability insurance. Proof of cover must be available during the safety check. Participating boats must be available for a random safety inspection in Svendborg Harbour no later than 20st. September 16.00. The harbour-master has reserved the entire harbour from the 17th – 23rd September so there will be enough space for all of us to squeeze in.
We would all like a little more wind than last year and therefore recommend that we all start praying to our local weather gods for perfect weather conditions for the race.
