Board » In memoriam » RIP Perenkist - 9 May 1971-11 September 2013

Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category General Discussion.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the sudden death of SOLer Perenkist on 11 September 2013. Having been an integral player in practice matchracing, Perenkist's presence in any SOL race always meant good competition and good company.

One of nature's good guys for sure, Perenkist will be sadly missed by his family and his friends on Sailonline. Our thanks to his father who let us know of this tragic occurrence.

RIP Ivar.

Rest in peace Perenkist. clearly far to young, My thoughts go to your family. :(
My sincere sentiments to family and friends of Perenkist.

Rest in Peace.

Sad news indeed.

Fair Winds Perenkist

One ship drives east and another west
with the self same winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails and not the gales
which decides the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate
as we wander along through life
'Tis the set of the soul that decides the goal
and not the calm or strife

Very saddened over this news... RIP SOLer Fair winds wherever thee might sail now.
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
Rip my fellow racer
Perenkist - still miss you and your excellent writings, I will drink a "schippersbitter" for you tonight. Best winds for you!!
Always sad when one of us goes too soon for the final mark.

RIP Ivar.

Current Races:

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024

Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
