Bohusracet 2019

Niba Yachting AS, in co-operation with Dragonfly Sverige, hereby have the pleasure of inviting all Dragonfly sailors to Bohusracet 2019. For the first time ever, Dragonflies will gather in Uddevalla, Sweden to take on a 170nm double handed challenge suitable for both the hard-core racer and the less experienced sailor.

The race starts in Uddevalla, just a short drive from Gothenburg, goes east in the fjord outside Orust and Tjorn around Hättebergets lighthouse just outside the famous island of Marstrand. After rounding the southern-most point of the race the boats head north to Tresteinene on the border to Norway, with sailing in- and outside the archipelago and roundings right outside the beautiful town centers of both Fjällbacka and Strömstad. After the northern-most point, we again head south and finish in the beautiful island of Smögen, that every summer host thousands of boaters from all over the Nordic countries.

Please have a look at the website of the race: (only in Swedish – for translated version: Also have a look at a video presentation of the race:

Every year the race offers fantastic sailing in some of the most scenic waters that can be found the Nordic for around 200 sailors, both on one or multiple hulls. In 2019 we would like to make an extra effort to to gather as many multihulls as possible, especially our wonderful Dragonfly clients. We expect boats competing from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. For our clients, we will make an effort to make their visit to Sweden and Bohusracet as enjoyable as possible. Preliminary we would like to offer the following:

  • Help with rigging, parking, launching etc.
  • Dinner the night before race start in Uddevalla
  • Briefing with a experienced ocean racer navigator before start
  • Transportation of luggage, equipment etc. from Uddevalla to Smøgen
  • Aftersail after finishing in Smøgen
  • Excellent prices for Dragonfly sailors

A lot of sailors will probably use this event to kick of their holiday, with Smögen being in the middle of the Swedish archipelago and just a short sail from both Norway and Denmark. For our friends that are attending the Welcome Race at Kieler Woche, Bohusracet will be just a ferry ride and a short drive away. In co-operation with Stena Line we will provide excellent rates for ferry from Kiel to Gothenburg, as well as Frederikshavn to Gothenburg.
