The Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins 2018

All Hallberg-Rassy sailors are hereby invited to the traditional and popular Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins, 15-16 June 2018 in Ellös.

Last year, 105 Hallberg-Rassy sailors with 38 Hallberg-Rassy yachts from 24 - 54 ft joined the rally.

As the tradition says with this popular Rally, there will be no time keeping and no racing but only winners. Every boat that sails will win some kind of category. One category is crazier than the other. That could include for example Happiest Crew, Oldest Boat, Youngest Crew Member and a lot more.

You may use or not use gannaker, code zero, spinnaker or even use the engine if you think that is useful.

Prizes will be generous, last year it included for example a Raymarine Axiom MFD chart plotter, two inverters, a sprayhood, several automatic life vests, led lights, tool kits, sailing jackets, bags and a lot more.

The program looks like this:
