This year we started out with training sessions twice a week with X-35 MainiXen and Mumm 36 Aero. Tried shooting live video from some of the sessions.

First race was St Oset Race in Björlanda. Here passing through Kalvsund…

… and we also got to try our new R5 on the final reach to the finish.

Ended up mid-fleet after a terrible first leg. But were happy with our downwind sailing, that was a problem for us last year.

A training weekend with other 36-footers went very well, with both good boat speed and improved boat handling.

Early june we sailed the boat to Norway to participate in the races there. Great reach all the way and good doblehanded pracice.

First race in Norway was Færderseiladsen. Made a great start and managed too keep our lane. Good teamwork and decent boatspeed managed to get us into 3:rd place in the busy R36-class.

Rounding the Færder lighthouse in the middle of the night. Then a fantastic reach to the finish.

Next up was the doublehanded Watski TwoStar. 18.5 hours of beating against a 20-40 knots southwesterly and steep waves.

In Arendal after leg one, we decided to pull out. A bad knee, the chance of breaking stuff and the logistical challenge to get the boat back to Sweden for the race the week after were all good resons plus we had a slim chance of inproving our result on a shortened second leg.

Our midsummer-sail back home was great. We had 25-30 knots from SW, sunny and averaged 9 knots over 100′ with genoa 4 and different reefs.


Celebrated midsummer with a new speed record!!!

Another cool doublehanded race was Bohusracet. 170 miles up and down the archipelago on the Swedish west coast. Great weather and we did everything right (which doesn’t happen all the time) so we were very pleased. Had some bad luck with lighter spots that kept the larger boats from getting away, but nothing we could do anything about.

Then it was time for some sailing with the family. Great warm weather with beautiful summer nights in the Bohuslän archipelago.
