Rumour has it that this year our very own Mr. Clean will participate in the Faerder Race in Norway, on a Marten 49. The race starts tomorrow afternoon and consists of about 560 boats. It's about 90 miles long and the fjord will be filled with spinnakers for many, many hours. It's a very tactical race, with lots of local currents. The Norwegian king will perhaps also participate, he's won the race several times in different boats.

I'll of course be there as well and compete against him, same class. I'll buy him a beer if he beats us! :D

Any other anarchist in this race?

Is this the race where boats are bouncing off rocks going through a small cut?
No, that's Tjorn Rundt, in Sweden. Aka Demolition Derby :) Sometimes also swedish boats join the Faerder Race and do spectacular groundings for our entertainment.
