Jan was one of initiators of reestablishing the XV class internationally, and the driving force in the XV class in Sweden 1991-1995. Jan was also behind the first XV (XV S-16) to be built for Swedish sailors.

Last week, two of our fellow members and very close friends got killed in a car accident. Anatolij Konovalov and Nikolaj Kargopolov are no longer with us. This came as a huge shock, and will certainly have very bad consequences for Monotype class in Russia as these two gentlemen were the driving force behind the Russian Monotype-XV.
