Notes and references:
Seilas yachting magazine reports 19th of May 1920 that 8 metre “Hei paa dig” is being converted to the new international R-rule of 1919 with racing sail no. 8 N5.
Together with other converted S-yachts she in 1921 went back and raced in the 8mS Class.
Her fate after 1958 requires more research. She is not listed in KNS register 1976.
Her freeboard and sail area have changed over time. Technical data listed in KNS register of 1937; freeboard 0.72 m, sail area 91.95 m2, rating 7.94.
