Pictures and comment from Axel Nissen-Lie "Built My father got made a half ton for the World Championship i Stockholm 1969.  The yacht «Skawbelle» made in wood, traditionally style at Kittelsen in Risør in Norway. He made 3 of them, 2 of them sailed the HTC. Sail number NOR 128. The yacht was designed by Norwegian Sigurd Herbern. Earlier he designed «Tresbelle» a one ton. He also did av quarter ton. The all was made in production with fiberglass hulls in the early 70’ties.
My father Henrich Nissen-Lie was the skipper in 1969. On the team was olympic champion Peder Lunde. The yard was delayed, and the didn’t get time to prepare. Scampi was a lot faster. The sister ship was owned by Erik Wiig-Hansen, also Norwegian."
