Notes

5.5 GER 98 "Viola" - soon racing in Hamburg - 16.12.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
This Britton Chance jr. design is now enlarging the Hamburg 5.5mR fleet. It will be seen racing in 2018 at the Wednesday evening "Kangaroo" regattas of local sailing Club HSC. There it will meet with GER 25 (Muir /Lexcen), GER 78 (A.E. Luders) and GER 32, the latter being practically a sisterboat. Why "Kangaroo"? Guenter Ahlers (Int. measurer) spent some years in Australia (end 60's) and introduced this handicap Regatta at HSC, featuring separate starts according to rating and a joint finish - if all race well.
5.5 SUI 138 - a light-wind candidate - 21.01.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The boat is told to be having particular advantages in light-wind conditions. The measuring certificate is showing 1777kg in weight. The front section of the hull shape seems not to be liking waves too much.
