Not exactly the smallest yacht in he world! From an interview with one of the crewmembers in Aberdeen it seems that after 4 days of heavy weather the hull seems to have 'developed a weakness'. Hopefully she'll be in harbour soon. For what its worth, looking out of the window, the weather seems to be moderating.

In Swedish magazine they said she is 64feet and they been having around 20-25m/s for a couple of days, and on a forum in Swe they wrote that she was in pretty bad condition.

Yeeah yeaah we are vikings and crazy so why not try, it might hold
