Looking for Snarken…


Does anyone know the whereabouts – or fate – of a cruising yacht called Snarken please?

Reader Thomas Hauerslev says that in the 1960s his family sailed the Runa-type yacht built in 1912.

She visited the UK’s East Coast several times around a century ago, and again in the 1980s at some point, he thinks. No-one he’s been in contact with has seen her since 1995.

Does anyone in the UK have any clues for him – was she possibly bought by someone over here? If you can help, please contact him through his web page about the boat. Please copy me in on your email at gmatkin@gmail.com – I very much like to know about these things!
