First GDR Scandinavian Gold Cup challenger - 17.12.2013 by Matias Johansson
According to newspaper extracts in the Harald Alfthan archives in the Finnish Sports Archives Ursa Minor was the first GDR Gold Cup challenger in Helsinki in 1961.

Her participation was risked at the last moment as she failed to pass the measurement, having a too deep draft. The crew cut her ballast the day before the races to qualify.

She is also mentioned to have raced in Reval (presumably Tallinn) shortly before the NJK regatta and finished second or first. In that race she was called Kastor.
