Going to miss Finn/Bimmer and his enthusiasm. He was a dedicated and skilled SOLer, and did so much for SOL on Ops. He was always wonderfully helpful when I needed something.
My deepest condolences to his family, and I'll keep them and him in my prayers.

David / Renegade
I'm very glad I had the opportunity to race Bimmer many times and must compliment him again for his last victory at La Rochelle. Flawlessly sailed!
My condolences to family and friends.
RIP my friend.

In one word: a … “Kind man “!

Seems very little thing , but its value is beyond that of the most precious gem in these days …….How many KIND men do you see around in this …era ?? …..smiling? …still a lot thanks GOD …..Courteous? …..not the majority but still …….well educated? …..fewer and fewer but still ……but ….KIND ???? …..I mean those who are kind and unexpected to be so because it is not due one way or the other ??? …the TRUE KIND ……??

Finn is one of those very very few …….. Courtesy and kindness as way of life never given for granted.
Each year I spend an amount of time in compiling award certificates for successful SOLers…then I spend another sometimes greater amount of time sending them away by email one by one….GOD knows how boring …..
I must make clear that I do not expect anyone to thank me ….it would be unreasonable and beyond any logic expectation….besides …my mail pocked would explode and I would have to invest another ( third ) amount of time in reading ……..
Some …sometimes ….DO…….
Three ….ALWAYS DO ……and when I send may be 8 certificates in one day …..They thank after each and every one …..But not thankfully ……just enthusiastically !!! …..He was always saying …” ….AWESOME !!!! …..thank you !! “
Two are still alive and well ….:)

I started being his biggest fan for a first victory in SOL longtime ago …….I was sending may be a podium with a third place, and used to do all possible to convince him that …..”…IT WOULD COME ….sooner rather than later …”…( once I said : Trust my full confidence !! …I see it coming !!! )..so…..in the morning of March 7th this year my joy went over the top and immediately wrote to him….sharing with him , just recently recovered from his first health problem , the joy to celebrate .

This morning it took me several minutes before being again able to think …and now, in a desperate attempt to think something positive, I can say the only thing I am truly convinced , i.e. that it is very true that when one is solidly remembered for good …..Never goes away…….

CIAO …….” Uomo Gentile “ ……..your reason to celebrate today is ….the amount of people who are not letting you go away……anywhere.

Piero

Saddened to hear that Bimmer has embarked from our world so suddenly! R.I.P. to a lovely chap
So sorry to hear of Bimmer's passing. My thoughts are with your family Finn, fairwinds and followings seas. Doug, aka Hitchhiker.

So sad to hear a good man set sails for his final voyage, heading for the sea with no shores.
Bimmer, have a calm waters and starry skies on your way to eternity.
Ibis redibis numquam in mare peribis
So, so sad to learn of this.
You will be missed for your kindness and helpfulness

oooh....Bimmie! To soon, you still had to win many races, make your perfect jokes, and always in for a laugh.

Organised the rudder with huge enthousiasm like it was the last thing you did..

Sleep well dear mate & buddy, have a nice trip and afterlife, and a very very very big hug from your friend dikke. It was always fun racing you that will never go away..

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
