Hallberg-Rassy 372 fastest in category in second part of Tjörn Runt

A Hallberg-Rassy 372 with in-mast furling was the fastest boat in category on actual time in the second part of the world's largest inshore race, Tjörn Runt. The actual sailed time from Kårevik, south Tjörn, to the finish line, was only 1 hour 33 minutes and 52 seconds, two minutes and one second faster than the second fastest boat in the category.

The Hallberg-Rassy 372 is the heaviest boat in the category but still the fastest in this part of the race. In total, the boat did not win the category, however.

The category consisted of many light and racing oriented boats like First 36.7, First 35 (latest model, Farr design), X-34, Dynamic 35, First 34.7, Gambler 38, Melges 24, Bavaria Match 35 and more.

The furling mainsail is a Elvström Epex FatFurl.

The course on the second leg was downwind, around 12 knots of true wind.
