Lumme became best Swedish boat with a eleventh place in the final race and ninth overall. Helmsman Olle Jo JOHANSSON and crew Patrik and Staffan SALÉN were satisfied with the results.
'We had high ambitions and were aware of the competition, to be among the top ten is an achievement.,' commented JOHANSSON. 'We are sailing with the elite in a class where the level is increasing every year.''We heard a rumour that Germany's Tommy MUELLER kept trying for 17 years before he won the Gold Cup. We still have time!'
