Marga of 1921 won the Cup for the second time

2018-08-12

The 95 sq m Marga built by the Holm Yachtyard in 1921 won the Baltic Classic Master Cup 2018. Marga is helmed by Mia Widstrand and she and her team had a tough start of this year`s Cup. Marga, a skerry cruiser, returned to port after facing very rough seas and winds in the ÅFOR Classic (a shortened version of the Around Gotland race), a race that the offshore cruiser Refanut won.

Marga who won the Blatic Classic Masters last year, redeemed herself in the Airisto Classic at Turku, Finland and won that race. The score is very dependent on the number of yachts participating, so with more than 20 yachts racing in Airisto Regatta regatta Marga gained  twice as many points than Refanut did in ÅFOR. Refanut did not race at Turku.

30 sq m Pani winner of the 2016 Baltic Classic Master Cup

Swedish yachts took top nine positions in Baltic Classic Masters

2016-09-02

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.
