5.5 GER 54
Also in 2010, "Anja" has been the fastest and most successful 5.5m Classic on the Lake of Constance, hence winner of the "Ambition Preis" challenge trophy in the Classic segment; but also on National level, being the winner of the 5.5m Vintage Classic Cup.
5.5 GER 54 "Anja" - Winner of the 2009 "Vintage Classic Cup"
Dietmar Armbruster from Constance has won the "Vintage Classic Cup" for 5.5m boats in condition according to the last Olympic rating rules, reaching the lowest points out of 9 races held in Germany in 2009. Donated by family Fehrle, this Silver Cup had originally been won in 1924 by designer and boatbuilder Willi Lehmann, who from the 50's to the 60's had built fifteen 5.5m boats. Sailmaker BEILKEN has supported this prize in its first year, with a voucher easing the purchase of a new set of sails. "Anja" will then be even faster, next year. Anyone for a challenge?
