25 boats from Germany and Sweden gathered in Ancora Marina in Neustadt, Bay of Lübeck, where Hallberg-Rassy's German sales office also is located.

All crews had a very good time. There were two dinners and one breakfast together. The prizegiving was on Saturday evening, with dinner, music and dancing. 

A handicap system called Yardstick was used. The lower the Yardstick, the faster you have to sail. The sailed time is divided by the Yardstick figure, resulting in the calculated time. The handicap figure compensates for fixed or folding propeller, whether you have spinnaker, gennaker or code zero, if you have a genoa or a jib, if you have traditional mast or in-mast furling, if you have a battenless main or furling main with battens.
