bohoThe sun starting to drop at 10:30 pm during Bohusracet. Ahead are the two leading boats, behind 180 chasing ones.

Bohusracet is Sweden’s largest doublehanded race with almost 200 boats starting. 170 miles of sailing through the beautiful archipelago of Bohuslän on the Swedish West coast. Starting Friday with 40 miles inshore, continuing through the night offshore and during sunrise going inshore again before finishing Saturday night keeps you awake and constantly concentrated.

Tactics, strategy, serious navigation and constant competition during thirty hours makes this one of the greatest races you can find on earth. – Anarchist Sam.
