Onyx SWE40 wins Stelton Cup 2020 with a margin to 1 minute and 20 sec on corrected time, but only 40 seconds separated the two of them on elapsed time. The trailing 3 X-102 finished 40 minutes later in a tight competion for 3-4-5 place in the 18 nm track course. Onyx became overall number 5 out the 35 participating on racetrack 2. Who says a 40 year old design cant compete with the modern boat designs.
Onyx skippered by Pär Halléus is here seen with the grand price for the race, with the right to brag for for the coming 12 months.
The price is founded by the skipper of #oneXtoo René van Laer who handed over the price, and requested photo evidence of the price being displayed in a central place in his home. The 4 other skippers will check in on Pär on a regular basis the coming 12 months.
The regatta was sailed under extreme light wind conditions, which explains the big time difference between second and 3 place in the race. The picture below shows Obelix during the race just meters from Peciva
The picture above shows the tight race between Obelix of Xtase who passed the finish line as 4-5, after Peciva, but Xtase wins 3 price on corrected time.
