505 boats applied to Tjörn Runt this year. There were 34 boats in the group where the Hallberg-Rassy 55 sailed. There were two courses, a short one and a long one. The 55 sailed the long one. The Hallberg-Rassy 55 was the fastest boat in class on actual time out of 34 yachts. Tjörn Runt is always a very challenging and tight inshore race. Winds were between 12 and 20 knots. The 55 was fully cruising equipped with for example in-mast furling, washing machine, dishwasher, generator, bow- and stern thrusters and so on.
