More yachts than ever before in The Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins 2017

The 2017 edition of the traditional Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins the pst weekend has seen a record number of partici­pating boats. 105 Hallberg-Rassy sailors with 38 Hallberg-Rassy yachts from 24 - 54 ft joined the rally.

The oldest boat was a 33 ft Mistral 33 from 1974 and the newest a Hallberg-Rassy 40 Mk II from 2017. All sailors enjoyed a real good time together.

The taste of the two delicious dinners, included in the start fee, could might as well fit in into a gourmet restaurant. On Friday it was a cold skin seared back of Cod with buttered summer Vegetables, fresh Potatoes and warm Crayfish Sauce. On Saturday Whole Roasted Filet of Beef with Roasted Potatoes, Mixed Summer Salad, Chili Bearnaise & Red Wine Sauce.

There was lots of sunshine and a 11 knots breeze from NW. As the tradition says with this popular Rally, there was no time keeping and only winners. Every boat won some kind of category. Prizes were generous, including for example a Raymarine Axiom chart plotter MFD, two inverters, a sprayhood, several automatic life vests, led lights, tool kits, sailing jackets, bags and a lot more.

Next time "the Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins" will be held is on 15-16 June 2018, so book that into your calendar already now.
