Last week friday we had a really nice commisioning party for ‘Nostromino’ at the Societé Nautique de Genève and then saturday morning we left for the 123km Bol D’or race with the promisse of winds from 50 to 70 knots arround 18.00 hours. We had beautiful weather and were doing fine in the race and then the forecast kept it’s promisse and gave us gusts up to 62 knots. Thanks to Local hero and crew member Betrand Geiser we had all cloth down seconds before it hit us and we ended doing 11 knots on the rigg only. Helmed by experienced Swedish Helmsman Thomas Lundgvist and Danish Olympic sailor Jesper Bank on sails and trim we did fine and could continou the race arriving at 06.20 sunday morning to finish 29 overall in the 548 boat fleet! ‘Nostromo’ did not even had a scratch and came through the storm in perfect working order! Not bad for a maiden trip!!

Today ‘Tudo Azul’ came in from Canada! She turns out to be in good shape and a solid base for a full restoration and ‘Doomernik Chip Tuning’ combined with our TLC she will become a stunning super fast head turner!
Look what we found! This amazing 1959 Pedersen and Thuesen was loaded in Toronto Canada yesterday and is now on her way to our yard. She will undergo a full restauration that will see her in full racing condition again and ready to join the fleets with a new owner. Your chance to own one of these very rare and amazingly beautiful and extremely fast boats.
