Sailonline is delighted to announce its fourth official buddy-up with Svendborg Amatør Sejlklub in Denmark for the challenging inshore race around the island of Funen, "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea".

The most likely sailing direction of the race will be announced at Skipper's Briefing starting at 15:00 UTC on 19th September. This direction will be published as soon as it's known in an In-Race message, for the race on 20 September.

Since inception in 2012 when a handful of boats participated, this single-handed race has become the world’s largest single-handed event.

This year the list of entrants shows 428 boats registered for start. Sailonline will be racing a Seascape 18, the boat type that is most widely represented (16 in 2019), so we will have direct competition.

Sailonline’s race will be opening Sunday 15 September at 08:00 UTC for pre-race practice and will start with the real Silverrudder fleet's Seascape 18's on Friday 20 September 2019 at 08:00 UTC.
