Notes and references:
In 1917 Scandinavian Sailing Federation (SSF) decided to move the Kattegat Cup to the new 8mS Class. Rules laid down for the Kattegat Cup stated all competing yachts to be designed and constructed in the country they represent.
In 1918 Mr. H.Haraldsen, Skien, Norway ordered an 8mS yacht with G.R.Liljegren in Gothenburg, Sweden based upon design by C.O.Liljegren, Sweden. It was mutual understanding that the yacht should represent GKSS, Sweden in the 1918 Kattegat Cup races. She was given the name “Borgila” and racing sail no. sH20.
Ref; Seilas yachting magazine no 6 of March 3rd 1918, reports on page 47 that shipowner H. Haraldsen,Skien has under construction in Gothenburg, one 8mS yacht designed by C.O.Liljegren.
