Eva Holmsten Drakenberg

5 March 2021

  With great sadness the ORC and offshore racing community mourns the passing of Eva Holmsten Drakenberg in Stockholm after a short illness. Eva was a long term Board member and vice chair of the Swedish Offshore Association (SHF), as well as a member of the ORC “family” for many years on the Race Management Committee and the ORC Congress. She was notably also one of the very few women in this family.

Eva is remembered with admiration and respect for all the great efforts she made during her years on the SHF Board and in her aim to deliver great events to the Swedish racing community. She was personally involved for many years as an effective and productive organizer and race official for numerous national and international racing events too numerous to mention here.

We remember Eva from the many bright moments when she got to do what she was truly passionate about: delivering value and benefits to Swedish offshore sailing. Her gentle and smiling but very focused presence were a motivating influence in all meetings she attended.

Our condolences go to her husband Hans Drakenberg and daughter Karin.
