Frederik Farr 40 update, Mary & Christian in Newport

No. 17 »Nanoq« racing off Newport September 6th.

A report in Billed Bladet says Mary and Christian flew to the United States last weekend. They have stayed in a house together with the »Nanoq« crew in Newport, Rhode Island. After a drive on the Ocean Road during the day, Frederik and Mary attended a dinner hosted by the New York Yacht Club in Newport last Sunday. Mary will have to return to Denmark before the Farr 40 regatta is finished for an engagement on Saturday (also remember Frederik and Christian cannot travel together by air). Sorry, no photos of Mary and Christian to now.

Frederik and the »Nanoq« crew are currently running 19 out of 38 entrants in the competition. Frederik attended a captains' meeting (he is next to the doorway) and the remainder of the photos of Frederik in Newport are from this week's Billed Bladet. Check today's news at Regattanews.com, there are a Danish and an Australian boat in the current top 10, but unfortunately not »Nanoq«. From Farr 40 Worlds: "The Opening Ceremonies were held last night at New York Yacht Club, Harbour Court, where Commodore George Hinman welcomed competitors from 12 countries: Australia, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Japan, UK, and U.S.
Today’s after-race social events took place at Belle Mer on Goat Island, where the North Sails Race Day award was presented to Flash Gordon." (read about this on Regattanews.com)
