Transfer of Notes - 5.5 D-14
Mikkel Thommessen has given the essential hint for the connection of 5.5 D-14 with N-26, hence the transfer of notes.
5.5 D-14 "Kraka" - historic search - 21.03.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch Research has so far not brought results, as to year built, design and boatyard of this boat, thus finding out, if she was original Danish or imported. Anyone who can help with data or Information is welcome to place a note.
Kraka - 05.10.2013 by Jens Busch
In 1967 Peer Bruun had registered D14 Kraka for the King Olav Cup in Hankø, Norway, but did not compete.
But he did compete in the Landsregatta Horten (next door to Hankø) in 1967: 11 - 9 - 12 - 8 - 12 - 12. 15 boats on the starting line.
Danmarks Museum foer Lystsejlads, Tasinge (DEN)
The 5.5m in the museum on Tasinge (Svendborg) is "Web IV", 5.5 DEN 12.
Where could 5.5 NOR 26 be then?
