5.5 G 11 - meant to be Olympic participant, twice
09-09-2008
by Kaspar Stubenrauch, 09-09-2008
This boat was built to be the German participant in the 1964 Olympics. The first owner was Josef Pankofer, one of the best sailors in the German racing scene, but he suddenly died in 1963. The second owner, Herbert Scholl had been Olympic participant in 1960 with 5.5 G 7 and was so sure to make it to Tokyo in 1964, that he had already built the wooden cases for his sails and accessories, with bold letters saying: <"Bronia" G 11 - German Olympic 5.5m Team>, presenting these cases in the elimination races in Travemünde. But, he had not counted the dedication of the Pankofer Crew, who had joined up with Biwi Reich to buy,win&sell "Subbnboana" 5.5 G 12, which placed G 11 third and G 13 second in these selection races.
