Hallberg-Rassy 44 category winner in Tjörn Runt 2019

29 Aug 2019

Swedish Hallberg-Rassy 44 "Akka" won the cruising category, among 26 yachts on the start list. Due to rough weather the past weekend and a lot of rain, only 9 out of 26 boats completed, and the Hallberg-Rassy 44 was the very fastest, no matter if calculated after handicap or after actual sailed time.

“We could so easily adjust the sail area, the sheets and the trim, thanks to push button sailing. That strongly contributed to our good result” says the lucky crew with Björn J, Magnus B and Jonas J.

Tjörn Runt is a very demanding race, where all the best sailors in this part of Scandinavia take part. Congratulations to the lucky and skilled crew!
