Silverrudder™ – Challenge of the Sea – is an annual singlehanded boat race, which takes place at autumn equinox. In 2020 the start went Friday the 18th september 2020 in Svendborg on the island of Funen (Fyn).


This year, there were 450 participants, and 57 of them were X-Yachts. Everyone had a hard time with almost no wind, many of the contestants had to stop before the finishing line.


However, some succeeded – and we are proud to see X-Yachts represented on the winning lists:


In the keel boat extra large category, 2nd and 3rd places went to an X-442 and X-412 respectively.
In the keelboat large category, 1st and 3rd places went to an X-382 and X-119, respectively.
In the keelboat medium category, 3rd place went to an X-99.
In the keel boat small category, 4th and 5th places went to an X-79 – and an X-302 helmed by X-Yachts employee, Anders Bastiansen.


Congratulations with the fine iron man results!
