The Norwegians have one boat ranked internationally in this class. Crewed by Aleksander Wang-Hansen, Per Eugen Kristiansen, and Marie Solberg, they are currently ranked first in the world. The country qualified for 2016 and Rio following their performance at last year’s world championships.
What events these sailors have been competing at in the past three months can be difficult to track. Garda and Trentino Olympic Week, which took place earlier this month and had a sonar event, has no ISAF results published on their website. Trofeo Sar Princess Sofia did not have Sonar on their program. Oceanbridge Sail Auckland Regatta in New Zealand in March had this class on their program, but only New Zealand competitors took part.
Norway is most active internationally in the 2.4 Metre and Sonar. SKUD 18 is not a class on their international program. Of the two they compete in, Sonar is the one they have less international experience in. The past few years have seen them compete in the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami, 2015 ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami, 2014 IFDS Combined World Championships, 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères, 2014 Delta Lloyd Regatta, 2013 IFDS Combined World Championships, 2013 ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami, and 2013 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères.
Norway returns to the Paralympic Games in Rio as reigning Paralympic bronze medalists.
