2nd Leg - Skagerakacross

Gordon lying in second place and closing on the leader with 18 miles to go. Great effort from him in rough conditions (9m ps).

Information courtesy of Yellow Brick.

Will update with final results.

Gordon just came back second from Denmark with the smallest boat and smallest engine. Impressive!

Owner of the Flying Flipper writes.

Lars T. Lindroth

‎Dag Rudstrom and his team pulled it off!!!

Dag managed to bring the Flying Flipper (ex Flippin Eck) to 3rd place in another brutal Skagerak Across race. Ten boats made it to start and conditions were tough and it favoured an experienced racer like Dag. Many larger boats broke down and when the battle was over only four boats managed to go the 144 nautical miles distance over the unforgiving North Sea. Despite having suffered a broken steering, just like what happened to the Flying Flipper in The Round Britain Powerboat Race 2008, when this Flying Flipper was owned and raced by Steve Hutchinson of GB, Dag managed to bring her home to Tvedestrand and secure a place on the podium for his team mates. I´m so honored and glad to have found a new good home for my beloved Flying Flipper with Dag. She couldn´t be with a better caretaker and I wish Dag many more succesful races with her.

P.S. I wish Sigurd Isacson could have seen the Flipper fly today. R.I.P. D.S.

Thanks Mike for posting this link
When watching this you have to bear in mind
the race does not start until the end of the video when you can see the lighthouse on the right
We where running at 38 knots max down the Fjord and lost sight of the start boat flying the yellow
Half the fleet where capable of 90Knots and took off like he'll when the green went up
So Gordon and I settled into a steady run to Hirtshals in Denmark
When we arrived we expected to see all the fleet waiting for the return leg
After a few questions it turned out we where 4th in and could not quite believe it as conditions where not that bad
We started back and where running in 5th until we hit the rough stuff half way home as predicted
We where alongside a cat running on one engine
Soon we left them and passed the ex flipping ek
who had developed steering problems
as it transpired we had also lost the power steering but Gordon was able to keep My Pleasure on course
We new at this point we where running in 2nd place on the return leg but had we gained and could we gain enough time to get on the Podium
We had no arrival times in Hirtshals so we just had to push on and hope
After the half way point where the organisers had positioned a Naval Ship with full medical facilities and a helicopter landing pad the conditions worsened
Unaware that a full comentry was on the go back at Race Control they where working out if we could catch the Goldfish which had developed an engine problem
If we had had a bit more time we might have caught them but on the other hand we might have been out as we had lost one power steering belt and one other off the main pulley
We where followed in by the helicopter up to the chequered flag where we had started out of site of the main fleet
It was an amazing race and one I will remember for a very long time
We are relaxing today watching the 3b and 3c
Finals and I'm on double Neurophen Plus

The organisation here has been first class
And their hospitality second to none

Chris and Gordon

Any one interested can see some pics on

Thats a great story Chris, thanks. Must have been hard on Gordon losing the power steering. Good to know the organisation was up to par as Simon the OOD is going to be our Senior Safety Officer for the Cowes to Monte-Carlo race!! Anyway, sounds as if you has a great time. Pity our old Flippin Eck boat broke it's steering, how on earth did they make it back? I see they came 3rd?
