THE ARCHIPELAGO RACE

In this TV documentary, we follow the events surrounding the 50th anniversary of the yacht racing competition Tjorn Around

The third Saturday in August nearly 500 yachts gathered to compete in Scandinavia's biggest yacht racing competition. At the 50th anniversary the organizers turned the track backwards and the start was placed in Stigfjorden and the target was on Askeröfjorden in Stenungsund. Sailing the track "backwards" was appreciated both by the contestants and visitors.

We follow 3 teams with different assumptions and goals. One boat whit a female crew, who meet each other every year to sail in the race together. The teambuilding boat who combines business with pleasure, and this gives the crew opportunity to learn to sail together with real professionals. Then we also follow the Norwegian super yacht that has the ambition to win the whole competition. The program has a feeling off summer, sun and salty sea.

Aired on SVT in the winter off 2013-2014
