Pilot Terje Jordfald and navigator Truls Kristiansen from Østfold broke the old record in crossing the line between Oslo and Copenhagen on Friday.
At their 36 foot open boat with a top speed of 75 knots, the team shattered the old record by the Danes in 2013.
TV 2 has followed parts of the spectacular journey that started at Dyna Lighthouse outside Bygdøy in Oslo to Kronløbet in the Danish capital.
They got a dodgy start in the face of some big waves and the rest of the trip was strenuous with several unexpected stop. Yet they managed to beat the world record within 5 hours and 25 minutes.
Norway had the record in 1997
Jordfald says that the record attempt was to honor a friend of him.
– There is an old buddy of mine who had the record until 1997, then some Danes broke the record in 2003, I thought it was nice to take it back, says Jordfald to TV2.
