Frostad victorious in Stockholm

Knut Frostad and his crew onboard the Norwegian trimaran Academy retain their dominance of the Nokia Oops Cup.

By winning all races in the Stockholm City Race on 5 June 2004, they proved that last week’s victory in Helsinki was no coincidence. A clear second went to Magnus Olsson with crew aboard Gore-Tex, finishing runner-up in all races, ahead of Klas Nylof on HiQ.

Frostad said “We did really well today, I can’t remember when I last won three straight races. But I’m not certain we would have beaten Magnus and Gore-Tex in the first race, had we not had a faster boat.”

Frostad has enjoyed sailing in Stockholm, Frostad said, “we had winds of more than 20 knots, a good course, the sun was shining and eventually things got dramatic when a huge cruise ship entered the course.”
