58 sailors in 22 yachts from 7 countries in The Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins 2014

There were perfect weather conditions with 10-20 knots of wind from north and sunshine. 58 crew members from 22 Hallberg-Rassy yachts from 6 different countries gathered and had a very good time together with two dinners; grilled entrecote from veal and paella from the largest pan ever seen. There was no time keeping and only winners. Every boat won some kind of category. Prizes were generous, including for example a chart plotter, an inverter, a portable freezer, sailing jackets, a sprayhood, winch handles, life vests, binocular, led lights and a lot more.

Next time the event will be held on 12-13 June 2015, so book that into your calendar already now.
