We have had our first virual skipper meeting in the i X-102 community with participation of Kent, Karsten og Henrik. We have agreed to focus on 4 regattas next year, where we want to gather as many X-102 boats as possible.
The regattas are:
Palby Cup i maj 28-30 Maj
Gilleleje Cup i Juni 2 eller 12 juni
Sjælland Rundt i juni 17-20 Juni
Stelton Cup i oktober
Kent has promised to recruit some of the X-102 sailors around fyn for for the palby Cup regatta, and we expect to have at least 3 boats from sealand joining in may. Gilleleje Cup is a combined regatta an social activity, and is planned for either the 2 or the 12 of june.
The big event next year is sjælland rundt and season ends for the sailors in Øresund with Stelton Cup.
Summer Holiday: We discussed the possibility for a meet-up next year in july, but no plans were settled, but we agreed to share our vacation plans for the summer via facebook.
If we have any of the german or dutch sailors in nordic waters in july please let us know.
The tracking used under Stelton cup will be used to track the planned regattas next year, and if we are more than 5 boats we agreed to share the cost for the tracking for the period we use it. We have more than 500 page views on sunday during the regatta and about 100 unique users have checked in to see on-line or see the regatta the following days. Please sign up for a key via the website
Onyx SWE40 wins Stelton Cup 2020 with a margin to 1 minute and 20 sec on corrected time, but only 40 seconds separated the two of them on elapsed time. The trailing 3 X-102 finished 40 minutes later in a tight competion for 3-4-5 place in the 18 nm track course. Onyx became overall number 5 out the 35 participating on racetrack 2. Who says a 40 year old design cant compete with the modern boat designs.
Onyx skippered by Pär Halléus is here seen with the grand price for the race, with the right to brag for for the coming 12 months.
The price is founded by the skipper of #oneXtoo René van Laer who handed over the price, and requested photo evidence of the price being displayed in a central place in his home. The 4 other skippers will check in on Pär on a regular basis the coming 12 months.
The regatta was sailed under extreme light wind conditions, which explains the big time difference between second and 3 place in the race. The picture below shows Obelix during the race just meters from Peciva
The picture above shows the tight race between Obelix of Xtase who passed the finish line as 4-5, after Peciva, but Xtase wins 3 price on corrected time.
Results from stelton cup 2020
The regatta was tracked using eStela
The Stelton Cup regatta is the last of season in Denmark for the keel boat class, and Peciva skippered by Henrik Bo sailed on back to port in the calm evening unlike the stormy conditions the day before with up 18 M/S sec.
For the first time on many year we have managed to gather five X-102 boats on a race track in Denmark. We are trying to take advantage of the latest technology, and we will be broadcasting live on the website.
The tracking will start 10 minutes prior to planned race start, and commence after 5 hours. the actual race track course will be updated Sunday morning, when we receive the official track course from the race committee.
See the tracking below
The 5 boats will be competing for the grand price of being “Øresundsmester” with the right to brag for the next 12 months.
