UK Sailmakers Norway’s customers won two of the three fully crewed divisions in the first half to the 2018 Pantanius Shetland Race. Leg one was 194-miles from Bergen, Norway, across the North Sea to Lerwick Harbour, in the Shetland Islands.
Per Aga’s Sun Fast 37 SKARVEN won 10-boat Class 2 (for the slowest fully crewed boats) and Stig Waagbø’s X-442 FURIA won 9-boat Class 4 (for the largest fully crewed boats). UK Sailmakers Norway’s Mehmet Taylan happily reported that both boats have full UK Sailmakers inventories that his loft designed and made. FURIA III flew a new X-Drive No. 1 genoa (pictured).
