Seascape Spirit Award
Thanks to everyone that took their time and came to party with us! We are glad to see Seascape community grow stronger and stronger every year. We love to follow your sailing endeavours and enjoy when we are a part of them. We put a lot of thought into what exactly is a true Seascape Spirit and who deserves the Seascape Spirit Award. So we came up with a Spirit triangle that represents three core values which we respect at the outmost.
There is so many of you now that we might have missed someone. Make sure that you don’t slip out of our radar next season. Our list of nominees grew long quickly, but there are some that really stand out from the crowd and would be wrong not to mention them.
First, there is Jan Markus Peters who came to Silverrudder with a loader crane truck so he could be independent and put his 27 in the water whenever he wished. He ended up craning the whole Seascape fleet in and out. Thank you again, Jan!
Then we have Kjell Johnsson, with his bright personality and passion for sailing so big that he shuts down his private business over the summer and moves to Croatia to sail around and help out at FreeSpirit. He shares his passion and knowledge without any reservation. Thank you, Kjell for being our spirit animal!
And then there is Karlheinz Müller the IronMan of the Seascapers. He is the toughest man we know. He did all the races in all possible conditions and never said it was hard. There is probably no stretch of water in Europe he didn’t cruise with his wife and family. He never complained about those conditions either. Thank you, Karli, for making us feel so unfit.
I also have to mention Miha Bajić, who planned his whole season around the Silverrudder challenge and completed it successfully. To prepare himself for the singlehanded experience he often took his two young sons to regattas. And to top it all off, he is bringing grilling skills unseen before on Seascape events. Thank you, Miha for your dedication to the class.
But then there is one guy who combines all three aspects on a whole new level. He did all the Seascape Challenges, with both his sons. He did two Silverrudders in the row and had registered for the third. Additionally to his 27 he also rented the 24 for the whole season to promote it and provide support to the existing and soon to be owners. Unfortunately, he was too busy saving lives in the hospital to receive this prize in person. The winner of SeascapeSpirit award 2017:
