J/111 BLUR 2014 Report

J/111 BLUR 2014 season (Stockholm, Sweden)- Over the past few years, an experienced and well-regarded J/Sailor from Sweden, Peter Gustafsson, has pushed the envelope of offshore sailing in various J’s- both fully crewed and shorthanded (single and double).

As some of you may know, Peter is the founder of (, his website/ blog about all things happening in the sailing world across Scandinavia.  His experiences are followed by thousands of sailors in the far north of Europe.  Racing all the famous races in the region (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Denmark) Peter has pioneered and promoted sailing to his friends worldwide.

Thanks to the “global synapse” we know as the “Internet” (think of your mind and how it works), Peter has pushed the physical, mental and psychological limits of the human experience taking his boats to their logical limits sailing offshore as well as “around-the-cans” racing.

Recently, Peter explained, “here are some of our highlights from 2014.  Besides lots of fun sailing, we managed to win the three biggest offshore races, in three different disciplines (fully crewed, double-handed and solo) in three different countries. It took a few years to get 100% out of our boat, but with great support from our partners and a committed team we’re finally there.  Now we’re ramping up for Fastnet Race next year.  Have a great new year and a fantastic 2015!”  Watch Peter’s 2014 J/111 BLUR.SE summer sailing summary here
