European 3C Sweden

Heat 2 just finished.

Provisional: Marcus Johnssen won it so becomes new European Champ

Think Mike and Rasmus second. Jan Trygve failed to start Heat 2

Jan Trygve did not fail to start, they crashed pretty bad in heat 2.

Micke and Rasmus stuffed the Argo in full speed, during the stuff the boat changed direction right in to Jan Trygves track, disaster is a fact as they get launched in to the air, boat also twisted to its back.

Both crews ok, Micke and Rasmus could continue the race after assist.

This is a prime example of how internet tracking does not give the full story. Thanks for the update. It's good that all crews are safe and not critical - two very competent drivers and crew. Shame about the accident, but that's racing!

Yes i understand that it looked like they never started, since the tracker died i guess?

Rasmus said they did 87 knots when stuffing the Argo, im chocked that it was in one piece

- And yes, so lucky everyone is ok. Cockpit rule for 3C = WIN
