Rune Aasberg, Solo 2 (#142), establishes a new reference time

The 11th of April, Rune Aasberg made a new singlehanded record on board Solo 2 (#142) between Faerder lighthouse (Norway) and the east boy just outside Skagen (Denmark), one of the most norvegian popular route, a theorical distance of 78 n

The main objective was to establish a new Class40 reference time.  The time to beat was around 12 hours set by an old 32 foot slow boat.

Solo 2 took  7 hours 37 minutes ans 18 secondes when there was hardly 15 knots of wind but ,as the wind shifted to the South-West during the end of the crossing, the conditions were ideal to turn back… and establish a new reference time !

Finally Solo 2  took 5 hours  40 minutes and 55 secondes  to cover  88 nm at an average speed of 15,4 nds, thereby setting a new reference time.
