This year's Silverrudder was one for the record books in terms of entries, but not in terms of the pace around Funen in the middle of Denmark. The entire field had a fantastic start, but later on, many boats lost many hours due to calm winds on the second half of the run around Funen.
Preparations are fully on for Ronnie Simpson and his efforts to race the Global Solo Challenge later this year.
Sailors do sometimes need a new project – and that is exactly what “Just Like 7th Heaven” has become in the capable hands of Peter Bolvig and Bo Hasseriis. The two Copenhagen-based racers have known each other for many years – and raced in just as many classes, though mainly in the X99’s.
It's race week! When the Women’s Match Racing World Championship starts today in Middelfart, Denmark, it will feature a full fleet of Blu26's - all equipped with the eXRP Cruise laminate from Elvstrøm Sails. A laminate, where the main components are made from recycled polyester materials - this includes the taffeta, the fibres as well as the UV-resistant film.
Elvstrøm Sails is onboard with Ronnie Simpson and his ambitions to race the Global Solo Challenge later this year. The Global Solo Challenge is a singlehanded non-stop, round-the-world race, and the preparations for Sparrow and the campaign are on full blast at the moment in the USA.
Karl Otto and Maren Magda Book are known for being up to a new challenge, and this past weekend, they managed quite a feat at the ORC DH Euros in Helsingør, Denmark. Here, they won overall and in Class A for the biggest boats in the event, racing well known machinery in the shape of "White Shadow" - a Landmark 43, which they normally crew in Norway and in ORCi-events.
