Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » Sailonline NavSim AB Change of President

In 2013 Sailonline transitioned from being a privately owned venture to a community owned Swedish company, Sailonline NavSim AB. Front and centre of the negotiations to conclude this successful transformation was Svein Kockberg (aka svein). Svein first started racing on Sailonline in May 2009 and rapidly became a highly esteemed and valued member of the community, always ready to help and advise those new to sailing of any kind as well as those new to sailing navigation and the tips and tricks helpful to do well in racing on Sailonline.

From 2013 until 2019, in addition to regularly competing in our races, Svein also was the President of the newly formed company and, with Robert Schön (aka robert1) ran the secretariat of the company, attending to all the Swedish regulatory requirements necessary for our newly acquired legal status.

Early in 2019, Svein decided to step back from such a leading role in Sailonline NavSim AB and began a handover process to Robert of all the functions of President but continued assisting in running the company. By the end of 2019 the handover was complete and Svein took the decision to step down completely, allowing those younger than him to take on the responsibility of managing Sailonline NavSim AB into the future.

In grateful thanks for all Svein’s contribution to the community life and work of Sailonline and his role as first President of Sailonline NavSim AB it has been decided that he shall now become the first Life President of the Sailonline Yacht Club.

We hope to see Svein racing again from time to time, but for now, let us all thank him for his invaluable contribution behind the scenes of what must be the world’s favourite online sailing NavSim!

I could say a lot and could monopolize this space telling everyone about the exceptional value of having a friend like Maestro Svein …..
and perhaps say why I started calling him Maestro…..and perhaps say what I answered to him when he asked me …” Why are you calling me Maestro ? “ …….but it would be too much .

I can only say two things to you my friend:

1) Since that day many and many in SOL do actually call you Maestro ….and no one ever asked me or himself ….Why ?

2) Thank you for the contribution of Highly sophisticated “ wisdom in a few words ” you always gifted me with …and always will ……

Mr President ……….Welcome to “Your” Club !!!

Piero

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
