Herbert Scholl (NRV) had won the elimination races in Germany with 5.5 G 6 "Hojwa", but then got G 7 (Z 32) from A. Firmenich, named her "Bronia" and sailed for Germany in the 1960 Olympics.

"Ylliam VIII" was not a 5.5.

The "Ylliam" 5.5's - 28.04.2008 by Site Administrator
There has been seven 5.5 named "Ylliam" (the other numbers of the dynasty are other metrics or multihulls). "Ylliam" is the anagram of "Mailly", which is the name of the domain owned by the Firmenich family near Versoix, on the Leman lake.
"Ylliam X" is Z-11 (see SUI-011) Copponex/Corsier Port 1955 believably immediately sold to Charles Stern and become "Antiope VII".
"Ylliam XI" is Z-15 (see SUI-015)(and not XII as mentionned by mistake in the rating certificate), Copponex/Corsier Port 1956.
"Ylliam XII" is Z-23 (see SUI-023), Copponex/Corsier Port 1957.
"Ylliam XIII" is Z-32 (see SUI-032), Copponex/Corsier Port 1959.
"Ylliam XIV" is Z-36 (see SUI-036), Ohlson/Kungstor 1960.
