Tuco Owner, Jakob Forst, sets best time round Denmark

Tuco owner Jakob Frost sets the best time in the race “Round Denmark Inshore”. Since the start Saturday morning at 10.00am, the carbon fiber boat Frostboxen, which Jakob Frost has built at the Tuco yard in Faaborg, has been chasing a new reference time in the Round Denmark inshore race. The race starts and ends in Aarhus, and along the way the team has been passing Skagen, Bornholm, and sailing through Little belt in their 650 nautical mile quest to concur the best time. The team’s goal was a sailing time below 100 hours, was nicely achieved with a finish time after 92 hours and 35 minutes when the team finished at 6.35 on Wednesday morning. With the competitor Torben Fagerholdt just over 40 nautical miles behind him.

With a new time on the “Round Denmark Inshore” course, Jakob Frost can bring another Danish sailing trophy home to Tuco in Faaborg, where also the “Silver Spinnaker trophy” for fastest time around Zealand, and the diploma for fastest time in the Royal Danish Yacht Club’s record sailing Denmark Around Inshore stands.

Jakob Frost and Tuco’s built carbon fiber boats have thus taken a heavy toll on the Danish distance sailing and record racing, since the Silver Spinnaker with the time 14 hours and 50 minutes in 2011 was won to Faaborg, where that record is still hold.
