Swedish yachts took top nine positions in Baltic Classic Masters


Baltic Classic Masters at Sandhamn in August became a primarily Swedish racing affair with 27 Swedish yachts, three Finnish, one Russian, one Belgian and one British. The 30 sq m Pani won, with 75 sq m Trumph second and 95 sq m Marga third. The best visiting yacht was Russian L6 offshore cruiser Nika, who finished 10th. The best Finnish yacht was offshore cruiser Kersti.

Nevertheless, the Baltic Classic Masters had the best turnout ever with 33 yachts  participating. Unfortunately, an additional two Finnish yachts could not make it to Sandhamn because of gale-force winds preceeding the event. Fortunately 8mR Vågspel and 10mR Kitty had crossed in good time and contributed together with Kersti, Varen (UK) and Nika to give the event an international athmospere of fun and racing, which was very much appreciated by all and not the least the organizing yacht club KSSS and Sail Yacht Society of Sweden.

Glass pitchers for the winners

In addtion to the GL Watson Challenge Trophy the contenders in the Baltic Classic Master Cup will now also race for three glass pitchers designed by the classic sailor and glass designer Lars Sestervik. The three top yachts in the cup will each receive one of Sestervik's engraved pitchers. They are called "10 degrees" and we think you can figure out why.
The pitchers have been donated by Latvia Classic Shipyard.
