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.
