Owner Details & History

Built according to the International First Rule.

She is a double ender (spissgatter). In 1912 a special committee appointed by KNS (Royal Norwegian Yacht Club) whose members were Johan Anker, Christian Jensen and Halvdan Hansen decided to rate Raak and Ull II according to the International First Rule and a "E" number was assigned sail number. After WW I a similar decision was taken for Mars (now Skoiern) and Liv (now Lady).

1918 - 1930 Built for Einar Bruusgaard, chairman of the Bruusgaard & Koisterud ship Lines at the cost of krone 45.000 - home port Drammen (Norway). The sail area was reduced with a shortened boom. The mast was broken during a storm.
