The Hard Bastards Association
After a record-breaking Silverrudder 2017 (by the number of sailors and time needed to finish the course) it turned out that even the pro sailors like Phil Sharp look up to the challenge that Seascapers completed. A nickname Hard Bastards was coined. All sailors that finish the circumnavigation (in or out of the time limit) of the island Funen [Fyn] on autumn equinox automatically join the HBA – Hard Bastards Association. An elite club which you can only join if you are worthy of it. Worthy in means sailing greatness, not in pounds sterling.
Entry list for 2018 shows that the Phil and plenty of others want to get in this year. Movie from last year below:
