LETTER FROM AN OWNER
Quoting a letter received from a happy Hallberg-Rassy 29 owner:
In praise of my Hallberg-Rassy 29
I bought my Hallberg-Rassy 29 from you in June 1991 since when I have had a very great deal of enjoyable sailing with my boat around Sweden, Denmark, Norway, northern France and UK. She performed well in all conditions and I would like you to know that on Monday of this week she was put to the test in rough conditions when wind strength reached 9 Beaufort on my passage from Dorset to Hamble. Our press reported that on that afternoon 25 boats participating in Cowes' week events were dismasted in the Solent but the Hallberg-Rassy 29 (who was not racing) dealt well with those conditions and she proved once again to be extremely sturdy. There are a number of positive features about the Hallberg-Rassy 29 but I just thought that you might be interested in this last experience.
