Hollænder Seilasen in Norway

A race that’s always windy turned out to be the opposite. No one can remember having conditions like this ever. So to say we had a fair chanse to score is an understatement. Newer the less we got a run for our money spending record time on the water. As you can see on the pictures there was as close to calm you can get – we spent more than two hours hard concentrated sailing (drifting) the last 150 meters to the finish line – against the current of course! Son and the race is a very nice experience so don’t miss out next year!
