Situation update

Four Seascapes decided to give it a try and started the Silverrudder. Sven, Thomas, and Dirk on Seascape27s and Leif on Seascape24. Leif made a good call after the start and turned around just before the Svendborg bridge. The other three came a bit further out but two already abandoned their attempt too. We are just waiting for Thomas to turn around. They reported 30 knots + and 2 m waves. Too much upwind beating.

 

We helped three other boats when they grounded. There are reports of dismastings and boats on the rocks. It is not safe out there at all. The Seascape Silverrudder is over. They just have to return safely to the port.
