Ludde Ingvall with crew on the 100-footer CQS made a new speed record in ÅR Offshore Race - round Gotland, when entering the port at Sandhamn Monday evening. Twenty years since he last broke the record he did it again.

CQS crossed the finish line as the first boat, but it will take another 24 hours or so before the winner of ÅF Offshore Race – around Gotland 2017, at recalculated time, can be named.

Luddes deadline to beat the record was at 21:19:23, but he crossed the finish line already at 20:51:35. He got the line honour in superior style, and also the speed record for monohulls. The record for multihull is held by the Swedish trimaran HiQ.
