Syvstjernen is looking for interested members to join the 2020 “SAILING LEAGUE” 1st Division

2017 was the first year Syvstjernen entered the international fast growing SAILING LEAGUE competition, sailed in the fast and agile J/70. The competition was fierce and all small mistakes were seen directly in the performance.

In 2019 the team, consisting of Peder Schimmell, Henrik Ekmann, Brian Hansen and Toby Fraser gained overall 4th place thus securing promotion to the top league.

The “Sailing Leagues” spans 4 weekends packed with racings in 4 locations spread across the country. It is shared on all media platforms with live tracking and TV-commentating and Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

We would need a team of 4-5 people committed to attend most if not all of the below dates and doing training together at least once a week in order to be at least semi-competitive.

It is a super good opportunity as requires minimal boat maintenance, so an easy and cheap way to go racing without having to own your own boat and representing Maersk at the same time.

To give an idea, the best teams are sailing like this: https://youtu.be/GdnWOR1vZcQ

Otherwise it is also a good opportunity for some people in the club to learn a lot (if they don’t mind about being competitive).

  • Lynæs 30./31. maj (2. div)

6./7. juni (1. div)

  • Aalborg 20./21. juni (2. div)

27./28. juni (1. div)

  • Middelfart 8./9. august (2. div)

15./16. august (1. div)

  • XXX 29./30. august (2. div)

5./6. september (1. div)

How to participate

As only 1 team is able to represent the Syvstjernen Yachtclub colors at each event we will organize two qualification days, one in MAY for the 2 spring events and one in AUGUST for the 2 fall events. Dates to be confirmed based on number of signed up teams.

How to sign up – Safety first

As these boats are very demanding and different from the traditional boats known in the club (exception is our new J/80), the following participation conditions are in place for signing up to first and foremost ensure the safety of those participating. Also ensuring the team will be able to compete on equal terms in the events with the other clubs/not compromising the safety and integrity of the racing events.

1. REQUIRED EXPERIENCE: As these boats are very demanding at least 1 team member has to have extended experience sailing with asymmetric spinnakers and extended racing experience, not required to be in a boat type using asymmetric spinnaker (and feel comfortably managing the crew on the water). This person is responsible for signing off the combined crew’s ability to safely maneuver the boat in any condition.

2. YOU SIGN UP AS A TEAM: Due to the 1. requirement organizing the team will be with YOU. The sailing team consist of 4 people on the boat (you can be up to 8 in total/only racing 4 at any time) – use your club friends, our Facebook group and the crew evenings to find your team.

3. PARTICIPATION: As the participation comes with obligations for the club your team is required to be able to participate in the 2 events potentially qualified for.

4. ENGAGING: This is a club event and it is for the club. The intention is to bring the club together and supporting the team going out there and representing the club colors. Therefor it is also the team qualified responsibility to engage the club through Facebook and our website with stories and news about the progression.

Costs

The participation in the events is covered by the club. Transportation, food and accommodation will be covered by the team.
