Scandinavian Classic Yacht VIXEN, designed by Knud ReimersVIXEN was built in 1937 to a design of Knud Reimers. With an overall length of 33 feet, her needle-like hull is easily driven with only 162 square feet (15 square meters) of sail area. She's well known in Europe and just prior to being shipped to Brooklin, Maine, sailed from Cowes, England, to Trosa, Sweden, to commemorate Uffa Fox's famous voyage in a similar boat named VIGILANT back in 130. VIXEN’s 2010 passage of 1000 miles was made in only 12 days, five days less than VIGILANT (which still sails in Sweden). For more on this Scandinavian Classic Yacht Trust event, click here:
