This thread was moved from the category General Discussion.



Sailonline is shocked and very sad to announce the unexpected death of Bimmer, aka Finn Møller Christensen. Having recently celebrated a milestone birthday, Finn had been very much looking forward to being able to be present in reality once again at the Silverrudder Race of 2021, a race partnership he organised so well for us.

Behind the scenes, Finn was a highly valued and reliable member of Sailonline's OPS Admin team - having joined the team in 2016 - not only sharing in the work of setting up races, but also working with the Boat Particulars sheets and producing timelapse videos of selected races. He was one of few who set up our semi-official Practice Races and was a regular participant in them - racing sharply and keeping us all on our toes.

He is going to be very much missed by us all.

Please feel free to write any messages of memorial or condolence here.

You will be very much missed in these waters dear Finn.
Rest In Peace Bimmer.
The most sincere condolences to your family.
We will all miss you.
I will miss my Danish friend who was so helpful with qtVlm matters and who did so much for SOL. RIP Bimmer.
Very sad to know you cross the finish line my friend. RIP Bimmer!
RIP Finn. In my short time on SOL I have come to know you as a fine online sailor and active worker behind the screens. We will remember you for a long time through all the polar and particular sheets you have made.
Now you can sail away between the stars.
Anche se non gioco da tanto tempo, questa notizia mi ha profondamente rattristato. Naviga in pace Bimmer
Finn
You will be very much missed by the SOL community because you where a good sailing friend and a dedicated worker for SOL !

My thougths are with your family.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
