Board » In memoriam » RIP Perenkist - 9 May 1971-11 September 2013

Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category General Discussion.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the sudden death of SOLer Perenkist on 11 September 2013. Having been an integral player in practice matchracing, Perenkist's presence in any SOL race always meant good competition and good company.

One of nature's good guys for sure, Perenkist will be sadly missed by his family and his friends on Sailonline. Our thanks to his father who let us know of this tragic occurrence.

RIP Ivar.

Rest in peace Perenkist. clearly far to young, My thoughts go to your family. :(
My sincere sentiments to family and friends of Perenkist.

Rest in Peace.

Sad news indeed.

Fair Winds Perenkist

One ship drives east and another west
with the self same winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails and not the gales
which decides the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate
as we wander along through life
'Tis the set of the soul that decides the goal
and not the calm or strife

Very saddened over this news... RIP SOLer Fair winds wherever thee might sail now.
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Rip my fellow racer
Perenkist - still miss you and your excellent writings, I will drink a "schippersbitter" for you tonight. Best winds for you!!
Always sad when one of us goes too soon for the final mark.

RIP Ivar.

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
