The world’s largest single hand race “SILVERRUDDER CHALLENGE OF THE SEA” also called “Silver Rudder” has begun. The race started today September 23rd with start and finish in the beautiful Svendborg Sund. The 135 mile race is expected to last 16 – 17 hours for the competitive boats and for some a much longer, harder challenge lies ahead.
There are two Corsair Trimarans being raced in this years Silverrudder regatta. We have a Cruze 970 and a Pulse 600 entered in this years regatta being solo skippered by Christian Soyka (970) and Jörg Trap (Pulse 600). The pair have been training all week in the approach to this event and we are all hoping their hard work will have paid off.
Here is a link to the video of Training. Good luck to Christian and Jörg, today is going to be one tough en devour but will definitely be worth it once you have completed the 135 mile single handed race.
