HiQ Sailing Team 2004 aims for new records in Nokia Oops Cup The HiQ Sailing Team 2004, with Klabbe Nylöf as skipper, is going all out to, once again, win the Nokia Oops Cup. Last year HiQ managed to win all races in Nokia Oops Cup, finished as the first boat in Accenture Round Gotland Race and completed new speed records in the Norwegian Faerder Race and the Danish Round Sjaelland Race. The summer of 2004 HiQ Sailing Team will once again participate in the largest sailing competition for 60 feet trimarans in the Nordic region. The trimaran the team will be sailing is one of the fastest sailboats in the world, and speeds of around 40 knots are not uncommon. Behind the initiative "HiQ Sailing Team 2004" is HiQ with co-partners together with Klabbe Nylöf (skipper), Roger Nilson (navigator), Andreas Andersén (responsible for the sails and the boat) and Pelle Norberg (project manager). A strong team with experience among them from no less than 9 Whitbread and Volvo Ocean projects. 'We won everything there is to win last summer and completed several speed records. Our ambition is as high this summer. My team has both the experience and the capacity to out-sail accomplished sailors from the whole Nordic region,' says Klabbe Nylöf. 'Our cooperation with HiQ worked very well last summer and we look forward to the same this summer,' says Nylöf. 'From HiQ's perspective, we see good possibilities for more records and many victories this summer together with Mainsail Management, Klabbe and his team. Based upon the success from both a sport and business perspective with HiQ Sailing Team 2003, we believe in an even better result this year. The project works as an excellent tool in profiling and involving the Group through activities in the whole of the Nordic region which we know is appreciated by both customers and staff', says Lars Stugemo, CEO HiQ.
