Notes

5.5 GER 112 "Pink" - Refit starting in Berlin - 10.05.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The boat has arrived at VSaW, in Berlin and will see a bit of TLC, next. Plus, exchanging halyards, lines, blocks & cleats. She is featuring her original Bergström & Ridder rigg! For those not knowing, Lars Bergström and Sven-Olof Ridder were the inventors of the WINDEX indicators. Suitable racing sails will be chosen. The German Class Association is looking for a sailor to take over the project, during summer.
5.5 GER 112 "Pink" - future use - 19.03.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Once difficulties for organizing regattas and limitations to travel are overcome, this boat will be joining the German Fleet for racing and will also gradually go through a renovation process.
5.5 NED 28 history - reconfirmed by Mikkel Thommesen 7th July 2008 - 08.07.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The boat was indeed NOR 41 and was bought from Sweden. It belonged to various Norwegians, John S Platou and Erik Wiik-Hansen among them. The boat sank at least once, but was rescued and sailed later. I know she was designed by J Håkan Södergren.
Best regards
Mikkel
