    You are amazing.  Since not having Badger, I am always scared witless sailing in strong winds!

    Well done Ketil,  think a race like that really shows off the Junk Rig - I assume you were single handed, and all the others were fully crewed.

    Last race of the season, adventseilasen in Karmsundet. Windy conditiones With sqwalls up to 36 knots. 3 boats assisted a J 24 that broached and sank(!) and aborted the race to bring back the wet and frozen crew. Another boat lost its mast. 13 starters and 6 finishers, Marie G came home 4th, beaten by 3 expresses and a J 24, all sailed by very competent crews. I had to reef and shake out reefs to keep Marie G running well, all in all a good day on the fjord by an old singlehander.
