Lewander’s Crew Take Line Honours

Anders Lewander, skipper of Ericsson’s ‘Nordic’ boat in the 2008-09 race, and his crew aboard their 2005-06 entry, have taken line honours in the Swedish long distance classic – the Gotland Runt, starting and finishing from the picturesque island of Sandhamn on the outer rim of the Stockholm archipelago.

The team completed the 429 nautical mile long course in less than 48 hours as their crew selection programme continues. On the last half of the race Ericsson passed all its competitors to cross the finish line in Sandhamn under spinnaker.
