    The 2018 Stockholm Archipelago was an amazing race and Hartas Productions was there to capture it!

    Who won the 2018 Stockholm Archipelago Raid? All teams of the raid who pushed themselves to the limit, leg after leg, mile after mile through all the islands, rocks and open sea in quite tough wind conditions! And all teams who battled with the teams around them and sometimes gained a point or two and sometimes lost. And all teams who took part in the adventure and made it to the remote islands and skerries where seals and seabirds live. And also all the people of the Race Organisation who made the race so successful, the food so tasty, the sauna hot and the beer cold and the whole experience so nice.

    All teams were winners, but some teams were more winners than the other teams. Three teams stood out from the crowd this year:

    Overall winner Fredrik Karlsson and Niklas Nordblom (SWE) who beat Patrick Demesmaeker and Vincent Thery (BEL) literally on the finish line with only 1 point.

    Winners overall 2018: 1st Fredrik Karlsson / Niklas Nordblom SWE; 2nd Patrick Demesmaeker / Vincent Thery BEL; 3rd Leff Dahl / Ida Svensson SWE

    Winners in the mixed class Leff Dahl and Ida Svensson (SWE) who where overall on third place, only a capsize or two from the overall win.

    Mixed class: 1st: Leff Dahl / Ida Svensson SWE; 2nd: Lucy Nissen / Jai Tooley AUS; 3rd: Jakob Thun / Linda Holtsjö SWE

    Winners of the youth class Lucy Nissen (18) and Jai Tooley (17) (AUS) who where 5th overall. Considering that they are a very light team in heavy conditions, that they normally don’t sail together, that they haven’t had to navigate to dodge rocks before and that they sailed a C2 for the first time this achievement was outstanding!

    Youth class: 1st: Lucy Nissen (18) / Jai Tooley (17) AUS 2nd: Max Rehman Linder (18) / Nicke Forhaug (17) SWE
