All Hallberg-Rassy sailors are hereby invited to the traditional and popular Hallberg-Rassy Rally where everybody wins, Friday 12 June - Saturday 13 June 2020 in Ellös.
Last year 101 Hallberg-Rassy sailors with 40 Hallberg-Rassy yachts from 24 ft up to 57 ft participated in 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 gennaker, 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, an inverter, a sprayhood, several automatic life vests, led lights, tool kits, sailing jackets, bags and a lot more.
