Plus, exchanging halyards, lines, blocks & cleats, taking out overaged bailers, installing a new barney post and revising the runner system. 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 have been chosen. The German Class Association is looking for a sailor to take over and return her to active racing.
