The next generation

The hanseboot boat show is at halftime now and seems to be - after several years with diminishing participation of exhibitors and visitors - returning to good acceptance.

This can also be seen on the stand of the German 5.5m Class Association. The first weekend did already have many seriously interested visitors. Test sailing sessions for new potential crew members have been taken note of and the particular features of the exhibited boats (GER 42, SUI 225 & SUI 227) could be explained to many active regatta sailors.
