Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » Announcements regarding SYC Ownership of SOL

Some questions answered:

Q1 - Why is this being done?

A – Click here to read Jakob’s article which explains everything.

Q2 - How much it will cost me in USD or EUR?

A - The minimum investment is 100 shares and depending on the number of shares that will be allocated to you after closure of the offer, your cost will be as many SEK as the number of shares ( 1 share = 1 SEK ). Approx. rate of exchange today : 100 SEK ≈ 11 EUR; ≈ 14 USD. Use xe.com to check current exchange rates.

Q3 - What do I need to do after sending in my proposed participation?

A - Just wait for the closure of the offer and you will then be notified with the amount of shares allocated to you. At this time you will receive instructions for payment.

Q4 - What happens if the shares requested by the Community exceeds the number of shares available?

A - Shares will be allocated to individuals on a pro rated basis, in other words, as a percentage ratio between the number requested by an individual and the total number requested by the Community ( e.g : individual request = 1000 ; total request = two times availability, means individual gets half of what was requested).

Q5 - Can I apply for more than 5% (3750 shares) in order to reduce the risk from being pro-rated?

A - No

Q6 - Can I return the shares to the Company or sell them to others in the Community?

A - At the moment the answer is Yes , bearing in mind following constraints :
(i) Shares can be either returned to the Company or sold to other eligible members of the Community, they cannot be sold outside the Community.
(ii) Shares can be sold to the Company practically at any time, allowing time for processing the transfer and with the seller bearing all costs of administration and transfer.
(iii) An internal market for shares selling and purchasing between members of the Community (still via the Company) will be open once a year. (Rules and details to be published asap)

Q7 - I was not an SYC member on 1 May 2013 but want to become a shareholder, how can I do this?

A - If you are an SYC member on the day prior to the opening of the next internal shares market you will qualify then

Q8 - Will more shares be made available in the future?

A - The board will have the right to increase the company capital and offer new shares in future. In that event, the entire Community of eligible SYC members will be allowed to invest, with the criteria in force at the moment of such capital increase. The maximum individual ownership will remain at 5%.

Q9 - Shall I have a financial return or dividends from my investment?

A – No. The purpose of the operation is purely to provide basic financial stability for SOL any profits or surplus will be ploughed back into SOL.

Q10 – Is my investment guaranteed

A – No.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
