Further, Henrik was first boat to cross the finish line - congratulations Henrik!!

The start was characterized by the rough weather condtions with big waves and extreme winds, whereas the last part of the trip from Fredericia towards Svendborg was a breathtaking sailing experience in the moonlight, reports Henrik.
